Anne R. Allen posted six reasons why you should be grateful for bad reviews.
I’ve mentioned this before, but for those of you on Twitter, there’s a handy site called WhoUnfollowedMe. It’s amazing how many people will follow you just to get a return follow – and then dump you. (What’s sad is how many authors do this to pad their numbers.) If you’ve never checked to see who’s no longer following you, this site is a great way to stay on top of your followers.
The list for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group is much shorter now and features only participants from the last two months. Sorry, but it’s almost impossible for this Ninja to visit every blog each month, although I do try. Might be time to find a co-host…
Special thanks to my fans
A big thanks to all who have purchased my books! Both achieved Best Seller status on Amazon US and UK, which still boggles my mind. CassaStar and CassaFire continue to bounce around in the top 15,000 and higher overall on Amazon US and they are still in the top 100 for science fiction on Amazon UK. I am truly humbled by the sheer amount of people who’ve taken the time to read my books. Big thanks to those of you who’ve read and reviewed or mentioned them on your blogs as well. Whoa. And here I never even wanted to be an author…
Overall, very good – more than just a baseball movie. Really tackles the issues of changing the philosophies of how the game’s been played since its inception. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill give great, understated performances. Special shout out to Kerris Dorsey as Pitt’s daughter. Amazing performance and she plays the guitar better than me!
I recommend Moneyball. It’s funny and interesting to see the inner workings of baseball. Ultimately, it’s about how a small market team changes the very course of baseball to compete with the big boys.
