Some Fun For Wednesday - Insults For Those Bad Reviewers

A colleague of mine sent these to me. I thought this would be perfect for those letters you want to write to the reviewers who hated your books, or to the agents and editors who rejected your books.

Please remember, DO NOT SEND THE LETTER. Just vent at home, don't print, don't hit send, don't call. Just get it out of your system and write the next dang good book!
