The strangest thing about being an author.
I have spent thousands of hours reading other peoples work.
I never knew that with each book an author is taking their mind child and saying
look at this piece of me.
How many people would sit back and let someone insult their child.
That’s why a bad review hurts.
But that’s what we are told is the best response.
And I have had a few bad ones
“no not you” you say.
OK that’s what I imagine you would say.
At one time I received a review that made disparaging remarks about my ancestral gene pool.
And rather then answer back I put a line on my good reads page from one of my favorite movies.
I fart in your general direction.Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.”
a great line from a funny movie.
now I am not saying that you can’t have an opinion but don’t attack a poor author
who just put his work out for your amusement.
Now because I finally have this blog up and running I will be bringing some of my earlier posts from my goodread blog
