Theodore Roosevelt has famously be quoted as saying:
“It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the doer of deeds might have done them better. Instead, the credit belongs to the man in the arena whose face is marred by sweat and blood and tears.”
At the risk is seeming arrogant, I must disagree with Teddy Roosevelt. The man in the arena is important, but so is the critic. The critic is the one who holds us accountable for our work and makes us strive to create the very best we can. I would like you, the readers, to be my critics.
Did you love Desperate Hours? or not so much. I would love to hear from you with ideas, suggestions and any errors you find in the book. (Sadly I have found a couple–one glaring one I found myself and it will be corrected in the second edition).
There are two ways to let me know your opinions. You can share your views and reviews by either clicking on the comment link at the end of this post or by sending me a message on the “Contact Me” page on the Menu Bar at the top of this page. The goal here is that through your insights, your criticisms, and encouragements you will help me do a better job developing the Matt O’Malley character in the future when he returns to Lake George and gets mixed up in who knows what!
