soph-3Hello, my friends! Another week has begun, and it has the hints of promise to be a good one. In fact, we’ve got a special guest to start us off on the right foot.

Today on the blog we are lucky enough to welcome the wise, deep-thinking, and fun Geoff Le Pard! He has some great insights into that thing that we as authors love and hate . . . and love to hate . . . and hate to love. Book Reviews!

Geoff Le Pard started writing to entertain in 2006. He hasn’t left his keyboard since. When he’s not churning out novels he writes some maudlin self-indulgent poetry and blogs at He walks the dog for mutual inspiration and most of his best ideas come out of these strolls. He also cooks with passion if not precision.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Great interview, Geoffle! I think there are many things we can learn from critics but most of them are too subjective and we cannot write for everyone. A book needs to be a part of the author and it mustn’t matter if everybody likes it, right?

    I agree with you Geoff. The stars are hollow and without substance. A few words at least gives you an idea of what the reader took from the book. I should be more attentive to adding reviews. Sorry.
