The Reviewer, scribed by one of my favorite writers, MK Alexander, is brief; arguably too brief. But my, it is funny.

Description: This is a short story about an indie-author driven mad by a negative review from a villainous reviewer.

In Short: If you enjoy short stories and revenge thriller type genres you should give this book a read. It is exciting yet suspenseful, and witty yet dark.

Pros: This short story is very well written and fast and fun to read. I would definitely read more by this author. Even though it is short there is a lot of character development for our "protagonist" who is a struggling author.

If you are an Indie (independent and/or without proper representation and/or legal counsel), then you OWE IT to yourself, and ultimately to your readers - to take this 10 minute read. MK Alexander lets us all know, by virtue of personal experience, that many of the struggles- doubts- and thoughts of giving it all up are not unique! We ALL experience this. In fact, it is a naturally occurring element in writing- the thirst and desire for a positive and forthright review.

No genre is safe from me!

One thing that bugs me is the accusation that I am too subtle. Too subtle? Is this even possible? I like to give my readers some credit: I always assume they are clever, educated, and have a good sense of humor...
