Terri DelCampo makes some interesting points in her post I WILL NO LONGER PURCHASE CRAP on her Write Now with Terri DelCampo blog. She and I purchase quite a few books written by many authors. There are some that, quite frankly, don't live up to expectations. We both agree that the free samples on Amazon tell a prospective reader a lot about a book. If there are mistakes at the beginning of a book, then you may rest assured they will be scattered around elsewhere.

This is not a tell all piece. No books or names will be mentioned. Also, bear in mind that no one is perfect. One can find errors in books from the Big Boys as well as self-pubbed and small press books. Don't let awards throw you off, either. I have read Bram Stoker winning books that I thought were awful. Personal tastes. However, one had a forward done from an award winning author that was filled with grammatical errors.Yikes!

Go to the link above and see if you don't agree with the other comments Terri makes. Please, authors, use the tools at your disposal.
