Insights Into Cindy
I love to read well-written fiction and non-fiction in all genres. If it's intelligently written with its target audience's expectations in mind, then I'm game for it. Perhaps the one genre I'm not particularly enthusiastic about is horror, especially the non-suspenseful, slasher and gore-splatter varieties. My biggest pet peeve in reviewing is coming across a book which obviously hasn't benefited from professional editing. It's an insult to the reader, but more importantly, it's insulting to the author to publish a work which hasn't gone through a thorough vetting and polishing process. (You can imagine how I feel about self-published works for the most part.)
