Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer Book Review

Full disclosure: I was given a free PDF copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I know that this is hard to believe, but there’s a reason why truth is stranger than fiction. With fiction, an author can make stuff up while getting into a character’s mind and analyze their actions. Truth doesn’t permit one to do that. When composing nonfiction, authors have to write about what actually happened, andContinue reading “Educated Book Review”
