As we near the JAYG AWARDS in July there is no shortage of nominees for http://www.authonomy.com/forums/threads/96540/-the-jayg-awards-/ WORST STORY IDEA
MOST DISAPPOINTING EXECUTION OF A PREMISE
OUTSTANDING BAD GRAMMAR
Should any book (spammer) deserve a Horribly Blunt Dissection by popular demand (ten votes or more on this thread) a terribly deconstructive investigation will be launched.
It's the least we can do.

Submit your book here for a terribly deconstructive analysis. It promises to be discouraging, with emphasis on your shortcomings as a storyteller.
They can’t be burned because they’re in cyberspace. But at least you can be warned. Readers take note, the authors volunteered their works for review and these book reviews are completely inaccurate except when they coincidentally touch upon the truth.
Which is all too painfully often.
Being judged by empathetic writers on a website called authonomy with academic checklists forcing readings through genres they don’t like with an urge to be kind is riskier than following the bale of the hound across a foggy moor – if the hound is a dachshund and the moor is the duck pond at the local park. Buoyed by the encouragement of just such an authonomized entourage the authors critiqued here submitted their work for the REAL test - the HBDB. The first 9 chapters:
1 Dead Grandmas
2 Small Town Schmaltz
3 Chamber Of Potters
4 Cop Schlock
5 Depressing Dudes & Divas
6 Science Friction
7 Angels and Vampires and Werewolves, OMG!
8 Phallic Follies
9 Classics By Request Posted: 08/06/2012 11:18:25
