My take on the whole Amazon-buys-Goodreads brouhaha.


Guaranteed for a giggle or two.

Today I posted my review for Alisa Tangredi's Under the Looking Glass.

This is a rather surreal mystery that I really enjoyed despite its use of trappings that I don't always appreciate.

Check it out here: http://papyrus.calebblake.net/2013/0...lisa-tangredi/

Due to life happening, and circumstances in general, Top of the Heap Reviews will be on an extended hiatus for the foreseeable future. Thank you for allowing us to review your books, and to talk to everyone about writing, reading, and publishing in general.

The site took off much faster than expected, and things grew to a point where we can no longer sustain the amount of work coming in, nor can we guarantee a turn around time with any certainty.

IF YOU SENT A PHYSICAL COPY, it will still be reviewed and put up on the site in the coming months however. All electronic copies will be destroyed to protect any copyright infringement of the authors that have worked so hard to get their stuff out.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

*****

This doesn't mean I'm going to NOT do book reviews, but I am taking a GIANT step backwards. The workload became so much that reading stopped being fun, and became a chore. The last thing I want to do is lose any love of reading.

So unless it's something I REALLY want to read, I've deleted it from my computer.

I can relate - the amount of requests coming in is quite depressing because I know I can't look at it all and I don't have time (unless I make some massive adjustments) to put out more than 3 reviews a month. I obviously get many more times that in requests.

I've been working on an new idea for a series and am still working out some of the 'kinks' such as average length and what age level of reader to aim for. I'm working on several science essay articles under the theme of 'How do we know.' I have a list of maybe twenty topics on this theme and have completed several drafts. The idea is to put them together in a full collection of perhaps 20K words or so. I've posted the first one - The Milky Way - in what should be near its completed form on my Bleeding Edge blog at:

Sorry to hear you got overwhelmed, Joe, and I'm glad to have received the wonderful reviews you gave me. Remember, you've still got a free ROGO book coming your way, to read for your own pleasure if not for review. Don't ever let anything diminish your joy of reading! Take care of yourself.

Hello there,

Two things this week. The second in my new blog series Box 010 in which I invite somebody to drop in for a chat and come up with five things they would like to see erased from existence. This week I'm talking to Simon Royale and you can find it herehttp://mtmcguire.co.uk/2013/04/10/bo...-simon-royale/.

Second thing, the Gumbee Fantasy Writers' Guild finishes its series about moments of poignancy or lurve with mine and you can find that here http://gumbeeguild.co.uk/2013/04/10/...6-m-t-mcguire/

Cheers

MTM

I managed to meet Hugh Howey briefly today at a book signing in Melbourne. I waffled on about it a bit on my review site.

I've decided to expand the output of my review site to include small fanciful articles about.... well, see if you can work it out: http://papyrus.calebblake.net/2013/0...lly-encounter/
