We've all read them for other books and cringed.
We've all had them as authors and just ignored them.
Many prolific, fabulous authors have advised me their books that tanked in reviews usually topped sales, some even winning RITAs!
But bad reviews still suck.
Especially when you think it's the best book you've ever written and the book has received rave reviews from everyone else who's read it.
Interesting how one person's POV can be so different from everyone else.
I look for the positive, in everything.
So here's the snippet I'm going to use from a prolific site's review:
"I was interested in some of the sites Tamara and Ethan visited in India, and the descriptions of Indian food made my mouth water. The Palace on Wheels, the luxury train they took through India, fascinated me."
So how do you cope with bad reviews?
Ignore them? Chocolate? Alcohol? Print and tear? Please share :)
