Ms. McGrump Has a Brilliant Idea


Prickly? Photo by Yours Truly.

This has been a week of short sleep and too much caffeine. Probably that’s why I’m grumpy. Anyhoo. I just had the world’s most brilliant idea.

If you’re an author and you have yourself worked up about reviews at places like Amazon and Goodreads, I have an utterly brilliant suggestion.

Start your own review website.

I know, right?

Here’s the rules:

1. Posters must provide proof of purchase before posting a review.

2. Posters must also sign an affidavit affirmatively stating that he/she is a true fan of the type of book she/he is reviewing.

3. Reviews must be a minimum of 250 words.

4. Reviews cannot be mean, disrespectful, or otherwise likely to upset the author.

5. The lowest possible rating is 4 stars. The highest is 5.

6. All reviews are sent to the author for editing and approval BEFORE it posts.

I’m sure readers will find such a site really informs their future buying decisions.

I am a genius.

A Kickstarter campaign to get this off the ground is in order.

I doubt I missed anything but if I did, please let me know in the comments.
