we're honest critic can be expressed.
So many authors are flooding the market with the same formula , it annoys me.   I must research what constitutes plagerism.  I have quickly flipped to the author s backflap for a hint of who they are.
Skimpy source I know, but a picture is worth more to me & my intuition than words.
If a rule to writers is " write what you know" then judging an author would give me a starting point.
