Wall of Fame

════════════════════════════ ❧  ════════════════════════════

Almost every reviewer I know has a shit list. Writers land on these lists for all sorts of reasons, most involving some form of disrespect. They've cussed out a reviewer, bitched to their agent over public media, made public accusations of a very personally offensive nature... the list goes on. 

After tripping over yet another "authors behaving badly" shelf on Goodreads, it hit me. While the reviewing community is quick to point fingers and name names when it comes to those who've crossed the line, we don't often acknowledge those who support and respect us, those who take a moment out of their busy schedules to offer us feedback and thanks. 

This is why I created the Flashlight Commentary Wall of Fame. I wanted to acknowledge those writers who have supported my blog or shown exceptional class in accepting my compliments and/or criticisms. Some have reached out to me privately and others have acknowledged my efforts through their own media, but every one of these individuals has, in some small way, earned both my respect and appreciation.
