Kid Lit Review

I mentioned it under the Colt Humboldt tab, but it deserves a mention in the front row. Sue Morris of Kid Lit Reviews reviewed Colt Humboldt a couple days ago. Suffice it to say that the review was beyond what I would ever dare to even dream about. If I had written the words just as a fantasy exercise, I’d blush so severely that there’d be no blood left for the rest of my body and I’d most likely collapse in embarrassment before hitting the half-way point.

The kicker? Kid Lit Reviews is bluntly honest, though with just enough sugar added to ease the writer down as gently but firmly as possible. So I was expecting to read the review, think “well, that’s alright, I suppose,” then realizing five minutes later I’d been kicked in the gut with no recollection of the foot flying toward my soft midsection. 

So thank you to Kid Lit Reviews. From now on, if I come across a less than glowing review, I can forever rationalize it away: “Yes, those are very salient and legitimate criticisms. I cannot argue those points. On the other hand, Kid Lit Reviews liked it.” At that point, I’ll slip my rose colored glasses on and skip away to Oblivious Contentedness, which is a perfectly pleasant place. I understand it’s somewhere in South Dakota.

    You deserve the review you received. Though those five words could sound rather nasty, I mean each and every one of them. Honestly, for a debut at 400+ pages, I thought I would find a writer who likes to write but can’t edit his own words or allow anyone else to do so. While it could have been shorter, as in two or three books instead of one, the story is grand and I would love to read the next chapter(s) in Colt’s life. If it would make you feel better, I promise to find lots wrong with anything else you send in for review. Scouts honor. 🙂
