The Sting of a Bad Review!

webcvr

I just released a new short story.  I enjoyed writing it, and I felt like my readers would enjoy it as well.  It’s in what is for me a new genre; female muscle growth, and the second story I have written on commission.  While the FMG genre isn’t my “home,” so to speak, it is definitely in the same neighborhood, and I am able to explore many of the themes that fascinate me.

This story, which ended up being called Brittany, is also different in that it had a throwback feel.  It was fun and a little zany, and that also appealed to me.  I like to get out of my comfort zone.  So, I posted it and sat back, eager to see if I got a review, and what that review might say.

Well, I did get a review.  One star, and the reader hated it.

It’s happened before.  The first work I ever posted on Amazon got a bad review to start.  It was called Cramps, and I thought it was a very innovative and excellent piece of TG fiction, but the first review was not kind.

I have learned to detach from the reviews.   I try not to get too excited about the good ones or too down about the bad ones.  In fact, I have the most trouble dealing with NO reviews.  At least if someone hated something enough to write a review, they had a response to the work!

I still love my little story, and I have a warm fuzzy feeling when I remember writing it, creating the cover, posting it.  I hope some people will enjoy it as much as I do, but I also realize that everyone out there own their own response, and it has nothing to do with me!

Brittany.

  1. Hi – to save you posting all those per-country links, you might like to give http://bookshow.me/ a try. The base service is free, and then you’d be able to just use a single ref that will redirect to each user’s local Amazon store. Might save you a little time, now and then!

One of those irritating pictorials surrounded with ads and distractions, but if you can suffer through the bulky page loads… http://www.laudable.com/article/31018949/this-girl-has-a-pretty-doll-face-but-her-body-is-surprisingOh, and this pictorial of two very pretty but amazingly buff young women may appeal.
