Mother Hen's October 2007

In this month’s issue of Mother Hen’s Bin I’d like to pay tribute to a group of writers who may not get the proper kudos they deserve: REVIEWERS!


They spent time and care to read your books (well, most do!) and give you a proper review of your latest publication.


Below you will find some of the reviews from members of the MuseItUp Club who review for The Muse Book Reviews.


One last note before you head off to the links:


Writers should read reviews carefully because at times a reviewer is trying to help them, diplomatically without bashing, with various aspects of the book that may help them improve their writing for future works.

Until next month,

Keep writing.

Be cheerful since we only have one life to live and might as well make the best of it.
