Well, it finally happened.
I got my first “this is the worst book I’ve ever read” review on Rise of the Chosen.
Yeah. Pretty much how I feel.
I know, I know. I’ve read all the ‘what (not) to do when you get a bad review’ blog posts and how it happens to the best of us but that doesn’t take away the feeling that I should never write anything ever again.
Honestly, the amount of good reviews surprised me more than the bad one. All this time I thought my writing was horrible and people said no! It’s good! And now, finally, someone saw it for what it actually is:
Okay, maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic, but I’m allowed. It’s my pity party and I’ll fill it in GIFs if I want to.
Speaking of reviews and GIFs, I always see awesome GIF-filled reviews on Goodreads and think to myself, “I hope someone does this for me one day!” Except, you know, not in a review like the one this post is about.
I’m also coming close to two agents’ response times for Queen. Two rejections, coming right up! I’ll take a side of tears with that, extra salty.
Anyway, if you’re in my boat today, share a virtual (or not) shot with me.
