About Ernest Winchester

I began spinning yarns at a young age, regaling my audience (my long suffering mother) each afternoon with tall tales of the second grade happenings of the day.
Years later, the duties of raising a family of five children curtailed my writing cravings until retirement allowed time to indulge my fertile imagination. I can now claim the dubious title of author without fearing being struck by lightning for lying. Over a dozen novels—only four published so far—and close to two dozen short stories total my output since I starting drawing SS checks. Retirement is grand.

I'm sure insomniacs would really get something out of this one, it felt that slow to read.

Where was the story? All I read was something that went nowhere, flat dialogue, 2 dimensional characters and a boring bus tip. Utterly unrealistic and lame.

Agree with the others, so much description and filler here for so little action. As the saying goes cut to the chase or lose your audience.

I think it's been said before but I believe Smashwords needs some kind of quality control to filter out the garbage. And by garbage I don't mean new writers experimenting and trying new things, I mean authors so lazy they just put up any old crap and covers that look tacky in the extreme. For a website that puts so much emphasis on formatting and getting that right the oversight on this is unbelievable. Granted there are a lot of authors out there but poor writing like this just makes us all look bad. For someone who's written so many critical reviews Ernest you could at least stop being lazy and come up with half decent covers i.e. put a goddamn title on them and an image that is halfway appealing. This story was just terrible.

Where to begin? The opening was dull and boring, and really a guy whose Mom insists he wear a sweater? Is this guy a virgin or just a complete pussy? There's a lot of description and dialogue that feels pointless, characters speak somewhat mechanically and it doesn't flow at all. And for a free file if you're going to write one you should get into the action pretty damn quick smart. I read a bit of this and just got so bored I stopped. I don't know if the hot parts were any good but if they were anything like the rest somehow I doubt it. Typos and other errors are the mistake of an amateur, get an editor. And stop being lazy with the front covers already Ernest. 40 free files or thereabouts and there aren't even titles on some of them, the rest look like random pictures grabbed from the internet that are as uninspired as the writing itself. Average. Very average indeed.

The numerous syntax and typo errors made this a very jerky read. The author should spend more time polishing and rewriting before submitting his work.

This is a charming short story about a weekend spent at the lake with a girlfriend's quirky family. The writing style is laid-back, which matches the atmosphere of the get-together. The eroticism is more subtle than overt, as Harold and Stacy dodge family members in an effort to first tease each other, and then to be alone to consumate their mutual desire. After reading this engaging story, I feel I know these characters. Well done.
