Ok.... So I don't normally do this.... but Here I go :)
I have read some reviews as of late and well I have had some problems with some of them. Yes this is only my opinion but here it is!
First off, If you are reading an Indie Author and you expect a "polished" Big Pub'd book you need to stop reviewing Indie books! If you know that going in there are going to be some "editing problems" yet you still give a crap review or 1 star because of that, You need to stop reviewing Indie books!
Second... when writing a review make your case for why you didn't like the book.... then move on the whole post doesn't need to be about the books "mistakes in editing" You should totally tell what problems you had with the book if you had some... plot line, characters attitudes and such.... If you have a problem with the Authors "voice" or whatever let people know this... Again The WHOLE thing doesn't need to be about TEARING an author down.
Now again this is just my opinion and well it probably isn't worth much. I love my indie authors and I DO NOT like to see them being attacked in any way!! They do not get to spend massive amounts of money getting edited or with someone going over every thing with them... YOU KNOW THIS, they are indie authors. Some are more "polished" than others... MOST of us are good with that.
Again everyone has the right to their opinions I'm glad we all do!! I just think as a reviewer you shouldn't try to attack/tear into any author! Also, I know my grammar is NOWHERE near perfect or even really great. I'm ok with it :)
I am now stepping off my little soap box ;)
