Book Blogger Hop #55: July 12th - July 18th

Hello everyone! I'm participating in another book meme called the Book Blogger Hop which is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer!  Basically, you just answer weekly questions and then post up your link on the question's page.

This week's question is : 

 This week's question is submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea.

What I like about self-published works is that sometimes the books would explore stories and topics that are rarely explored in mainstream books like interracial relationships and strong violence.

What I don't like about self-published works is that sometimes some of the books are not edited properly, which leaves in a lot of grammatical errors and bad sentence structuring.  Whenever this happens, I tend to get so distracted by the grammatical errors, that I don't really pay much attention to the story being told and I often wonder to myself about why these grammatical errors are still in the book. 


  1. I agree that self-published authors tend to write outside of the box. I just wish all them would edit their work a bit better.

  2. It is always sad, when a good author's work suffers from lack of finances for a good editor.

  3. Agreed!! I get so distracted by typos and such. I always take notes to send back to the author to fix if they hadn't caught the errors yet. I don't mind doing that but it is a bummer when you're editing more than reading!

  4. Yes, same here. Luckily, there is a shift and more self-pubbed authors are realising the need for editing etc. nowadays. Not all, but it's a start.
