So you know all those great reviews I’ve been getting? Yeah, nice huh? And so, as an author, when I get a lot of really great reviews in a row, I begin to wait because I know the bad one is lurking out there.
And today I saw it. Cringe. See, the thing is, there’s no point in being hurt by it, even when it gives away key plot points (spoilers) and various other things I don’t consider all that accurate a picture of what the book actually says and does. (BTW, I edited this sentence to be more clear)
So okay, I get that not everyone is going to like my books, that’s life and it keeps you grounded. And unlike some authors, I won’t say that all reviews should be nice because romance authors are too sweet and fragile to take one in the crotch. Sucks that not everyone loves me, because they totally should, damnit!
(And I’m not saying this is a terrible awful review, btw. It’s a bad review, no doubt.)
