Bad reviews, and poor sports: The literary world we live in.

When a published author receives a bad review, they chalk it up to mistakes they’ll never make again. Typically, anyway. There are some authors who believe themselves better than any other author on the market. However, when it comes down to it, they lack basic spelling and grammar skills, and refuse to listen to people trying to tell them they need to find an editor. Then, when the back lash from not taking the time with their work hits, they whine and cry and claim learning disabilities to gain unwarranted sympathy.

I rated a book a one star. On Amazon and on Goodreads. I will keep the “author” and the “book” nameless, more for the reason that I think she doesn’t deserve any kind of attention for any reason. I don’t particularly care about her privacy, though. I want to get that out of the way first. Celine has not come out yet. It won’t be out for a couple more weeks. This “author”, while having no clue what the book is about, rated it a one star on Goodreads specifically because I rated her “book” a one star. Admittedly, I would be kind of bummed for such a low review if my book was actually out on the market, but I would have taken it and moved on. I know that I shouldn’t let it get to me, but I just feel like we all need to be mature and take the reviews we receive. I would totally take this review if it was justified, but it’s not. I think my venting is over, but either way, I’m not happy. I feel that this “author” needs to learn what the meaning of “grow up” means.

I won’t let her get me down. I know that my book has been loved and cared for and is getting the proper clean up before its release.Unlike hers.
