I just saw on CNET that Amazon has a new feature where reviewers can post a pic with their words.

“Amazon lets customers post photos”

I checked out the page for Sand in My Bra but there weren’t any there. Then I thought I’d take a look to see if there were any reviews up yet for Panties. So far the reviews are mixed. Two called the stories laugh out loud, while one unhappy customer said this…

“This is the dumbest bunch of drivel I ever forced my way to drudge through just to ignore the 8 month-old in the seat next to me in a plane. Killed 10 minutes anyway.

Keep your $10 and bang your head against the wall for free. Same humor value.”

Back to the photos, the article says you need to be registered as a “Real Name” (identity proof that matches your credit card) in order to post the photos. I think it’ll be interesting to see if this works. I’m not sure yet if I think this will help sell books, or just be a laugh for the the authors and publishers.

As for the unhappy reviewer, I’m not too concerned. I don’t think people would be laughing so much at the events if they felt the same way. But if you have read Whose Panties Are These?, and you enjoyed it, please go leave your review. Photo or not photo, doesn’t matter.


  1. You’re right to adopt that attitude to the crummy review Jen. If you tried to please all senses of humor in one slim volume, you would fail utterly. Some people hate the best humorists. Senses of humor have a lot of overlap but if you look closely they are as individual as fingerprints. A story that makes you weep might make me weep today–but tomorrow I might be sitting there stone-faced.

  2. Dumb as I am, it took me some time to figure it out. Perhaps the url to amazon where you can post direct would be of great help. 😎

  3. Sorry for the inconvenience, Dusty. There’s a link there now that will take you to another link for the book where you can post your review. 🙂
    The one downside for having my PowerBook is that I have to hand code in MoveableType. I must’ve been in a rush or got lazy yesterday.

  4. yeah, there are some vipers who sandbag their feelings of powerless (which they don’t seem smart enough to realize they are) by posting snotty, cutting reviews on amazon. Someone just dissed one of my books and when I, looking to rub a little salt in the wounds, looked up her other reviews, I noted that she’d given my book far fewer stars than some jungle-themed toddler seat.

    on the bright side, someone else gave me the same number of stars as a wheel of brie.
