I have successfully weathered my first bad review! 😀 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.
