Dear Authors: Don’t Respond to Goodreads Reviews

Reviews. Want ’em, love ’em, get ’em.

This author writes a brilliantly funny piece about how NOT to respond to negative reviews based on a recent debacle on Goodreads. You may pick up some tips about how to deal if a “big stupid butt-face with a butt for a face” poops on your pages.

I welcome reviews if you happen to grab one of my book offerings – just don’t make me cry or get arrested for kicking over lawn ornaments.

…ooooops… looks like I’m in real trouble now…

Just please “Herr Hitler” don’t send “Justin Briber” against any Canadian authors! We’re still working on reinforcing our borders so he can’t come back! 🙂 🙂

Your support (you can “follow” there too) is very much appreciated 🙂

I’m posting this on my writing blog as well… I wonder how the fibre muggles will react to my post title…?

…Authors… what do we want? mega sales! when do we want them?… yesterday!…

Wise words about publishing, the culture of instant gratification and keeping our “Great Expectations” real.
Oh! And… you can find my books on Amazon, iTunes and Yada Yada 😉

…there’s an old saying I recall, ‘Patience is a Virtue… possess it if yeez can… often found in Woman, but seldom found in Man’… this ol’ Jurassic has no idea how much of that observation is based on verifiable fact, and it prob’ly depends on which gender yeez ask about it… also absent is any overlay on that premise as regards we quill-scrapers… whether the male or female of the scribbling species is the more likely to ‘chomp restlessly at the bit’ is indeterminate…
