Reviews


The reviews are starting to come in. There is nothing that brings you back to reality like having someone critique your work. It is definitely humbling, to say the least.

As authors we must learn to take the good with the bad and, also consider the source. I have learned to review my reviewers. That terrible friend who you did not invite years ago to a birthday party might have it in for you, naturally a bad review is revenge at last. But I only take to heart reviews by people or professional reviewers that don't know me. They are not bias and the most useful, in terms of improving my next project. Ernest Hemmingway wrote: "There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." So true.. It is your heart and soul put into your work.

I know, writers spend hours, day, years developing their story lines. So, when you release it to the world, it can be very emotional. If you cannot take the bad with the good, you are in the wrong profession. Your work is a matter of taste and not everyone likes the same genre in books. Remember that. What is good for one is not for another.
