This may seem a little harsh, but sometimes this rule applies:
"If you can't say nuffink nice, don't say nuffink at all."

Of course that doesn't apply if it's a piece you voted for!

I read all the entries before I vote even if I have entered and vote for my own BUT, I don't review as it takes time and most of them are only paying 2 cents by the time they get to the booth.

Why don't they review every piece they vote for? Because people are lazy.

I've been observing the booths for years, and there are some writers who have this, if we may call it so, voter's appeal. If you noticed, the same people win over and over again. While other pieces that may be stronger in terms of merit, often do not win because they don't have this voter's appeal.

Go figure.

My advise to all is not to take contests too close to heart. Contests are a game. I don't want them to kill your self esteem.

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
