Most art forms comes from within; eventually released like a fledgling and leave the nest. The emancipation is not without anticipation, and the artist, if they want it or not, will find their work reviewed. And when this occurs, each individual artist must call upon their inner self; for criticism can be like a finding a flower and then suddenly getting stung by a bee.
On the other hand……Just remember… reviews are like a storms; some hurt the ego, while others appear like a rainbow.
Although it was a cloudy morning things began to glow when I received notice that my most recent publication, The Fortune Teller and Other Short Works earned a 5-star review.

Nanette L. Avery, the talented author of The Fortune Teller and Other Short Works, is an incredible writer whose work needs to be recognized and read by all readers so, please book lovers, if you adore anthologies and books with brilliant stories then you will love this!

The Fortune Teller and Other Short Works is, of course, an anthology (a collection of short stories) and so the readers get to experience many different stories and witness many different lives and circumstances, however, all of the stories are written from a woman’s perspective which I think is brilliant! Each story in this excellent collection is unique and different from the other one. They never once sound similar, and that is a hard quality to achieve with an anthology, so already I have to applaud Avery for her talent to write original, creative stories! ….”
