Shelly’s on a roll since her last post. I was going to save this for Tuesday but I’m naming the next Hot Man of Hot Men of Blogs then.
So why my title to this post? Well, Shelly’s been reading a lot of comments out there about why other writers won’t give their ‘friends’ a bad review on their books. Yes, I’m talking the Indie author.
Look, if we’re putting our novels and such out there for the public to read then we should be privy to a bad book review if our book sucked. Really folks. How is the Indie supposed to know whether or not they’ve written something that’s tortured the poo out of a reader? A friend tells a friend the truth. Right? If my jeans make my butt look too big, please don’t be afraid to tell me. Please! This soon-to-be Indie wants to know the truth about her grammar, plot, and storytelling skills.
It’s like this, if I’m brave enough to publish and advertise my work then I should be brave enough to handle a bad book review. Right?
So please don’t be afraid to hurt my feelings. I beg you.
Later in the ink all,
