You Always Hurt The One You Love

Has anyone ever told you your writing sucks? Probably not. We’re too polite to tell the truth because most writers can’t handle it. The truth might hurt, but if you want to grow as an artist, someone MUST judge what you create and provide feedback, even if down deep you don't really want to hear it.

Do you want to really know? If you do then send me the first page of your latest novel, an old neglected one, and/or especially, that one everyone has crapped on for years. If you have the nerve and really, really want to hear the truth, then contact me at editor@mbpubs.com.

I’ve been reading submissions for over 20 years and have read the best and the worst writers can produce. You’ll never  get better until someone literally tears the crap out of your work. Ask any expert author.

Those who are chicken need not apply.
