An open letter to Sean Taylor May 8, 2015
Dear Sean, I thought I was a writer until I read your book. I thought I was creative until I read your book. Your playfulness with our language is a treat. I got a freebie version through BookBub, and I will buy this book. I want one that I can hold in my hand and reread passages. I want to underline sentences.
Some reviewer complained about formatting. Formatting can be fixed. Copy editing would be helpful. BUT formatting and editing have nothing to do with real talent. When I finished the first story, i paced around the house with the hairs on my arms standing up, tingling! I've never had that kind of reaction to a book before (and it wasn't the flu). I'm very impressed.
I hope you will write many more books. And I hope lots of readers find you. I will recommend your book to my book club. Word of mouth helps too.
Sincerely, Lynn Arbor
author of "Intentional, a novel"
Thanks Lynn, this is so very kind of you. I wish you the best of success in your endeavors.
I will admit I did all of the formatting myself and it seemed good to go for all devices except the Iphone, for some reason it would not paragraph indent. I didn't see that as a deal breaker. My greatest flaw is the ease in which I will sometimes exclaim one of my favorite phrases, "good enough."
