A great article for authors on the "dying" reader market, though I suspect things aren't nearly this grim. At least, that's what I'm going to tell myself as I go finish my sixth novel.
On my darker days, I wonder—and I imagine you do, too—whether I'm not just wasting my time with this writing gig, when I could be doing something that's a lot less work and maybe a whole lot more fun. Hiking, strumming my guitars, playing games. Maybe even abusing substances to dull the pain ...

This is my third of three Holiday Inn reviews from a week of travelling for my son's Navy graduation in Great Lakes, Illinois. Compared with Waukegan, Illinois, Columbus wasn't as nice, but it was head and shoulders above Holiday Inn, Marshfield, Wisconsin. The room was a bit cramped feeling, but it was a true non-smoking room--a relief, after sleeping in the Marshfield ashtray. The bathroom has a mold/mildew problem, which the front desk staff assured me is in more than one of the rooms and is resultant of a poor repair job they are in the process of having fixed. Apparently the initial repair was done incorrectly and the mold/mildew is reemerging through the caulk. That being said, staff was friendly. There's a restaurant in the lobby that's pricey, but the bartender/waitress was very pleasant. We had a pizza, having gotten in late due to storms. It was nice to have food available at 9 PM. The lobby is very nice, the rooms good other than the bathroom. A complimentary breakfast is included in the stay, but the hygiene of the buffet was questionable. Compared with Waukegan, this breakfast falls flat on both quality and cleanliness. The waffle machine was nice, but mostly this was the only other complaint besides the bathroom. Not a bad place and we've certainly stayed in worse this week. I'd love to say it was awesome, but it was just okay. Convenient to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, a must-see if you're in the area!

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Marshfield at my brother-in-law's suggestion because it was close to his house. I can't really say anything good about the place.This is one of three Holiday Inns we stayed at this week, and the only one not to offer a complimentary breakfast. Desk staff wasn't welcoming, didn't explain anything about the hotels amenities (if there are any), and didn't seem to know that their non-smoking rooms were anything but. We are non-smokers with a strong aversion to the smell of stale smoke. Even in a non-smoking room, the smoke smell will knock you down. We went across the street to Pick & Save to load up on candles and air freshener. Neither helped long-term. The woman at the desk says WI has only been smoke-free in public places about a year. Being from NY, these folks are a decade behind. Marshfield, you have a long way to go to call these rooms non-smoking. We felt like we slept in an ash tray.

We recently moved from a 3BR to 4BR home using Spa Moving services. The three man team and truck we were provided were top notch. There were plenty of blankets and a nice, clean truck large enough to haul our entire load. The movers were extremely careful when covering and moving large items, mindful not only of the items themselves, but of surrounding walls and railings. They moved quickly and efficiently and maintained a pleasant attitude despite the hot temperatures and heavy lifting. The valuable service was affordable and professional--A++++++ Highly recommended.

My husband and I took a "daycation" to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls since neither of us had ever been. Embassy Suites bills itself as the newest hotel on the falls with the best view. I'll grant them the view. We stayed on the 21st floor, in an 'upgraded' fireplace and jacuzzi tub suite. The concierge touted the excellent view, for an extra $30.00/night. We were only staying one night, so why not? Upon entering the room, I almost asked to be moved. The carpet threads were ripped up in spots, and worn in a way that made me wonder if the hotel was 'pet friendly'. I didn't even want to take off my shoes. Two chairs faced out over the falls and were in equally poor repair. They were matted, stained, and dirty. My husband offered to cover one with a blanket, but I couldn't get comfortable sitting there. I looked out from the bed, which seemed pretty safe. Valet parking, as I see it, is a repeated complaint, and I'll echo that. You have NO CHOICE but to valet. The difference between $20-$30 a night is whether or not your car comes back when you want it, and apparently the $20 a night has your car possibly off-site? Obviously I paid the $30, but I was already in over $300 a night for the room. I have no idea why. The view only goes so far. I've NEVER stayed in a supposed 'luxury' hotel who nickel and dimed their customers more than Embassy Suites. Paid wi-fi? Really? For around $350 a night, I expect wi-fi to be included. As we're American, our cell phone service was greatly limited and wi-fi was our only connection to home. You want it at Embassy Suites, you're paying $10.00/per night/ PER DEVICE. What a rip. Customer service and hygiene were lacking and besides the view, which is only exciting for just so long, the stay was not up to par. I won't be back, and further, I'll never stay in another Embassy Suites/Hilton again. Go to the Radisson. They don't charge for wi-fi.

If you're headed to Great Lakes for PIR weekend, the Holiday Inn Express Waukegan (HIE) is the perfect place to stay. Conveniently located to PIR, GL A school, and Sarge's Meet & Greet, each are only a few short minutes away. Plenty of shopping right outside the hotel and an array of restaurants. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and nicely appointed, clean and well-kept, and the breakfast is great, especially compared with those offered at the two other Holiday Inns we stayed at this past week. Staff is courteous and respectful of our new sailors. A new facility with ample parking and truly non-smoking rooms, this one's a great choice.

I've lived in Bspa for over eight years and boy, have I been missing out. A&J Nail Art is not much to look at on the outside, but don't let the cover fool you. Inside is spacious, clean, and friendly as they come. $22 gets you the best, most relaxing pedicure you can imagine. Comfortable massage chairs during atop-notch pedicure complete with leg and feet massage, a neck and shoulder massage at the drying station afterward, AND for $22.00, a paraffin treatment on your heels is included. A MUST for sandal season. Can't say enough good about the place, but I'll definitely be back.

I'm going to go ahead and say that the Saratoga Springs Empire Vision is a crap shoot. Some people there are caring and helpful. Others, downright rude and nasty. My husband had a visit there recently and as a first time contact lens wearer, had issues. The store and Empire Vision corporate take the position that it's okay to let patients walk out of the office without examining the fit of contact lenses prescribed to someone who has never worn them. As someone who has worked in ophthalmology in the past, I find that to be irresponsible. Ill-fitting contact lenses can cause damage and while I'll agree that an eye could appear irritated after "contact lens training", there should still be a cursory look. Needless to say, that's the least of our issues. My husband called after several days of discomfort to talk about options and no one returned his call. Again, new wearer with problems. You don't call back? So I called. I have worn the same lenses with the same prescription for years. For this scenario, Empire Vision is fine. I called to see if my order came in and to talk to the manager about my husband's concerns (he was at work and frustrated about not being called back). The manager really didn't seem to care about my complaint at all. Customer service is incredibly lacking here. Rule #1, you LISTEN to customers complaints, especially if you are a manager, and you try to come up with a resolution. I started off nice, but admit I lost my patience after repeated terminal holding and an "I don't have time for you" and "I don't care about your problem" attitude. She just kept telling me she needed my number and someone would call back. This isn't my first run-in with this place, but it will be my last. All Empire Vision seems interested in doing is saying how they've done nothing wrong. I disagree. We're ironing out this problem because we've already paid and, at this point, it's more work to start over, but next year we're definitely going ANYWHERE else. There's a reason this place has an online 2-star rating. Your eyes are too important to have them cared for by a place that just doesn't care. It's a shame, too, because the optometrist we saw today actually cared and did her best to address my husband's discomfort and acuity. Like I said, it's a crap shoot. I'm just tired of getting burned.
