Why I was pissed off at Mary Smith from Book Nerds Across America:
Here is part of the review that Mary posted about Hoax.
"Not so great about the book: I think Lila is scared to write a book with more than 200 pages. Not that her stories are rushed, by any means. She just writes shorter stories. I finished this book within a few hours because its around 130 pages or so. I think that she is so talented that I would not even blink if she wrote a 300-400 page novel!"
The only thing I saw? Lila Felix is scared to write a book with more than 200 pages. So, after my millisecond of being royally pissed, I started looking at my books. And she's right. She's right. *facepalm* And it challenged me. So here I am, sitting in front of a 130 page manuscript and the characters have not even kissed yet, which is something different for me.
Here's my point:Thank you Mary. I hearted you tons before and I heart you tons more now. Why? Because of your awesomeness as a blogger. You told the truth about my book, with grace, and I learned from it. You made me aware of a shortcoming and I'm gonna blow your socks off with How It Rolls. Be prepared. :)
