Quiet, please

I’m a little under the weather – who isn’t these days? – and so I give you a thought from my friend Rob Sanders, author of Cowboy Christmas and the forthcoming Outer Space Bedtime Race and Ruby Rose on Her Toes:

 


 Quiet has become a polite synonym for dull or boring in the publishing world, and that’s very sad. While no one wants to read a dull book, everyone needs a thoughtful, touching, or tender book once in a while. Perhaps it’s time to reclaim the word quiet from its current negative connotations.
Jon J Muth‘s Zen Shorts and Zen Ties are two of my favorite quiet books. Might be time for a cup of tea and a re-reading…
