I have successfully weathered my first bad review! ๐Ÿ˜€ That may not seem like cause for celebration, but it feels like a rite of passage. I was talking to another author last week, and she was advising me not to read my reviews as it just gets too upsetting. I may get there (she has many more reviews than I), but for now, I’m still very intrigued to hear what my readers have to say. And I do appreciate the writer of the negative review as she gave me a great deal of constructive criticism and even a little praise. Not everyone is going to like my book, and that’s okay. Sometimes my books feel like my children, and my actual child can attest to how well I accept criticism of her, so I am immensely relieved that I don’t feel all mama bear over this review—just reflective.

nook-captureAfter staying up all night twice fiddling with codes and formatting on the Nook version of my book (sleep is stupid), it is finally available! So my Nook friends, please let me know how it looks. I don’t have a Nook, so I had to rely on B&N’s previewer. Once again, the minutiae of publishing is much more time-consuming and persnickety than I had realized; kudos to the publishing companies who make it look easy (it’s super not).

And just in case you’ve forgotten, I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate on March 1st. If you would like to be entered to win, just leave a comment below with a link to your review of my book. If you review it on multiple sites (Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, Kobo, etc.), just include the links and you’ll get an additional entry for each one. Thank you so much for your reviews! I love reading them. ๐Ÿ™‚
