Dear Author,

You know, I was really hopeful when I picked up your book. It's been, oh, 20 years since I read a serialized romance novel and I thought, hey, I bet they write them better now that it's a billion-dollar industry. And the back cover said you were an award-winning romance writer with more than 60 books to your name. And I thought, this one is going to be great. But you know what? Ten pages into your book, and I realized I've missed nothing in the past two decades. I know you're limited to 200-odd pages, but please, do you think I'm stupid here?? Here's what you need to do for your next book, which I'm sure you're already writing: limit your cast of characters so they have a fighting chance of being more than two-dimensional; make your characters intelligent and likable; and don't write stupid suspense plotlines that the reader can figure out in the first chapter. For inspiration, how about read "Water for Elephants", a much better book that didn't make me want to hurl it across the room. If you can't do these things, dear author, please stop writing. Library shelf space is precious.

Sincerely yours,
A disgruntled reader
