Honest Critiques

No, I mean it. REAL honest. Email your excerpts or full stories, up to 1000 words or so, to honestcrits [at] yahoo [dot] co [dot] uk. Synopses would also be welcome. My backlog is so daunting now that I recommend not submitting anything you are not prepared to wait a couple of months for a response on.

    Oh dear. The top ad in my little ad block is for PublishAmerica, who say - "We want your book, not your money."

    Just in case anyone reading this doesn't know about PA, here's a link to the Absolute Write forums, with all the information you need. And please, please don't touch them with a ten-foot pole.

    You can probably check out most of my other advertisers there too...

    I noticed those ads yesterday. They were all for self-publishers. Today you have one for scarey horoscopes! You are very brave Torgo! With those ads, you never know what you're going to get!

    I've added PublishAmerica to AdSense's competitive ad filter, so once it's taken effect those weasels shouldn't be 'taking up space that I require for other purposes', as Bertie Wooster had it.

    You can turn the Google ads off.

    But then I would be deprived of my tenpence a week...

    I dunno. Is tenpence worth it? The horoscope thing says: warning- very freaky disturbing @ crucifies.com. P.S. I'm american, how much is a tenpence?

    About fifteen dollars at today's exchange rates...

    No, I'm joking. About 18 cents.

    fifteen dollars Canadian perhaps ...
    But doesn't PA get dinged for your tenpence if I click through to them? I'm perfectly willing to work towards transferring coin from their coffers to yours.

    I have been to your site and I too am working very hard at adsense google php to increase my revenue. I am also looking into many NEW ways to utilize the design to further direct people to follow my ads.
