Two Sides of the Coin

As I was reviewing previous blog posts for possible deletion, Having a Voice caught my attention as I’ve been (pick an emotion: enjoying / suffering / celebrating) two releases this summer. I’ve been listening to hear what the readers have to say. Although a book is the writer’s voice, the readers have a voice in what they want, what they enjoy reading… and most importantly what they will pay for.
