I dock the following things: bad grammar/punctuation, plot whiplash, too many sentences the same style, stray focusing, not understanding /overlooking character history, Mary/Marty Sue-ing without background and context (because nobody's that lucky for so long), too happy endings, hyper downer endings, and product placement.
Talk about it Tuesdays
I currently host a weekly content review program on the Black Science Fiction Society channel called Talk about it Tuesdays. You can view current episodes in the series by checking my blog or by clicking the link here.
The purpose of this radio show is to showcase member works of all kinds. I review novels, anthologies, magazines, comics, short stories, audiobooks and even feature-length movies. Members of the BSFS generate a lot of content and so far, it's all been really good.
If you're a member and want to submit a work, you can email me by clicking on the link below or messaging at the society site. If you're not a member, you should join up! Membership is free! Link is above and below.
