Losing Scars

Losing Scars - Jessica Gouin Disclosure: I purchased “Losing Scars” from the author’s booth at the local Book Expo in November 2014. I have had limited communication with her about this book though we are members of the same writing group. I purchased a signed copy and as a courtesy, I contacted her regarding the below mentioned errors. The comments that follow are my own personal opinion. I received NO compensation of any kind, or from any one, to provide this review.

I did not read past Page 30 of this book. In those few pages, I found multiple errors in almost every aspect of writing including but not limited to spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, verb use, clichés, echoes, dialogue formatting, logic issues. POV is first person, but the protagonist constantly refers to thoughts and feelings of other characters. She wrote in present tense, but the tense is inconsistent.

I will not be giving a rating to this book since I have not read enough to become familiar with the storyline, pace, or voice. I’m not going to continue reading at this time.
