A bit of a rant-- how can these sappy authors whose books get published riddled with grammatical errors and sloppy sentences and so much more wrong get an agent and I can't?
Case in point--
"Ice" is a modern retelling of "East of the Sun and West of the Moon."
I read the excerpt. It's boring. My little brother writes better than that, sadly.
(Warning, I am a book snob-- I like good books. "Twilight" was fun, but not good. "East" was good. "Ice" is like the stuff I wrote in 8th grade. Make that 7th...)
Ice is direct copy of "East" by Edith Pattou-- except, you know, "East" is well written...
This is also a rather personal one, because Beauty and the Beast is my story, and "East" is the Grimm that BatB came from!
Really y'all? Epic fail...
