In reference to Thursday’s blog post about how critical reviews are for authors I give you this fantastic illustration from Debbie Ridpath Ohi of a quote by Liana Brooks.  I think that pretty much says it all, don’t you?  🙂

Scorpion Petting by D.R. Ohi

Image: Head with glasses and wild, purple and blue hair. Hearts in the corners. Quote says: If you love a book, write a nice review. It gives the author encouragement for bad days when they want to take up scorpion petting. – Liana Brooks.
