My name is Troy Babilonia, but I'm best known as Babu, a renowned literary critic with my own online column. I'm followed by thousands! I'm a living god in the literary world. I have no filter, and for that, my flock of humble followers are forever grateful. If it weren't for me, they wouldn't know what to read. I have zero tolerance for the weak-minded attention seekers, nor do I have respect for the self-proclaimed geniuses of the Indie world. My advice to all Indie authors is to never break the cardinal rule in this cut-throat business. Ever.
My name is L. Blackburn and I'm an Indie author. My extraordinary genius was loved and worshiped throughout the literary world, until one egocentric critic tried to obliterate my career. It seems I broke some "cardinal rule," and now I'm paying the price for it. But I don't plan on going down without a fight.
Review: This one was fun. Maybe because it's semi-relatable. An indie author getting a bad review makes the mistake most authors don't when he responds to it. I like the fact that there was a distance kept between them. The two didn't know each other and even when they eventually meet, it's more by chance and they have no idea who the other is. Blackburn figures it out first. This isn't the classical love story. There's attraction but not instant love between them. They both have issues. Troy isn't a jerk for no reason. They don't have an easy time getting together at all. Also, they are both jerks. Equal jerks, and they deserve each other. I loved it in the end.
