Title: Tough Love for Beloved Free Ebook Readers
Author: Den Warren
This is an unsolicited review of a Smashwords download.
This short, sharp, expressive rant of an Indie Self-publishing Author voices what every author (including myself) thinks, from time to time, but is too afraid to say; complete with cute love/hate marketing gimmick 😀
The Whole Story:
We writers love our readers, maybe not as much as we love our dogs or cats, but we’d miss our readers almost as much; so I admired Den Warren’s honest rant and analogy, which I believe took a lot of courage, and maybe a glass or two of whiskey:-D
Mostly well said, but at times shifting into I-still-need-this-bunch-on-my-side, this ranting article gives both writers and readers much to think about.
What I learned?
Every writer goes through the whole lack-of-feedback-from-free-downloaders hell. I should really leave a review for all those books I’ve downloaded, especially from Smashwords. After all, I’d like the same done for all my books.
Rating: 70-80% for honesty, bringing a voice to those who should know better, and making me smile.
Recommended to: Free eBook downloaders, Free eBook writers, those researching the pitfalls of being either.

Title: Nature Art – Adults Coloring Pages with Printable Sample
Author/Artist: Ally Nathaniel
This is an unsolicited review of a free Smashwords download.
Dripping with symbolism and intricacies, there’s tons of inspiration and hours of fun in this coloring eBook. These drawings are a gentle surrealists dream come true.
The Whole Picture:
Ally Nathaniel has a wonderful talent for combining the unexpected: from easily imagined possible patterns in nature, to the surrealistic combining of elements, like a blue whale and a clump of flowers. There’s a bewildering array of joyous drawings to make your own.
What I adored
There are layers to these drawings, simple to the complex—something for every mood. You could spend hours or days coloring these images in. There was a smile for me, on every page. I love, love, loved the butterfly with the light-bulb!
Recommended to: Coloring book addicts; those looking for inspiration, meditative aids and some rainy day mood enhances.
