A Quick Thought on Bad Reviews

Best-selling author (and just totally awesome person) Beth Revis just shared this blog post about bad reviews.

I love it.  A ton.  Hence me stopping by my blog for this quick moment to direct you all to it.

We all get bad reviews.  That is part of the business.
And while it does hurt, we have to remember: Even if that reviewer didn't like you, others did.  That is what matters.

Besides... some people don't like chocolate??  ?!?
Oh my.  What is this world coming to?

"If there are people in the world who hate puppies, Harry Potter, chocolate, and/or bacon, then there are people in the world who hate your book. Put in that perspective, things aren't so bad, huh?" - Beth Revis

Thank you Beth, for this awesome post.
We writers all need to remember this!
Now, off to eat me some more chocolate!
