Some of the newer writers out there might get a little peeved at bad reviews. But seriously, what is a bad review? How does a review become bad?
Well, technically, it’s when a reader doesn’t like your book. Ok. Let’s take a look at this. So someone didn’t like it. Does that make the book bad?
Course not. Listen, unless most or all of the reviews are bad there’s really nothing to worry about. As a reader, I’d actually be suspicious if all the reviews for a book were glowing. Wouldn’t that look suspicious? There’s enough of those fishy reviews to go around anyways.
So here’s my take on “bad” reviews. They’re good. Why? Because they add legitimacy to your book.
So when you free yourself from the unrealistic fact that everyone will love your book, you’ll be more relaxed, and your writing will flow.
