Since joining this group I have found that I really like critiquing short stories and such, but I want to try something new. I want to start reviewing books. When you critique, you get down into the minutia of the writing, but when you review, you can stay more general and talk about how the novel is different or how its symbols are manifested and maybe even how it will help or hurt society. And then you can recommend it to your readers (the people who read your reviews) or not recommend it. I think I would like to focus on gothic fiction from small presses and independent publishers, and maybe even include in my reviews things related to how the book is made available, how well it is edited, how the Kindle formatting looks, and that sort of thing. In my wildest imaginings, I would even like to maybe have a yearly award, like a $500 prize or something for the best one that year. Not a contest or anything, no entry fees, just an award for the best one. I'm not quite sure how I would finance that. But that's something I can deal with down the road. Does anyone have any advice for me on this? I ask because it’s something very new to me, but it feels like a path I should go down, you know?
