3 Day Review Updates
September 23, 2019
BY SAMANTHA FAIR
Since releasing Love or Lust on 9/6, the reviews has been slowly coming in. They aren't what I hoped or expected but as my friend pointed out, it's only my 1st book. I had a few that liked it and one person in particular that hated it. She and her "friends" bashed it comment after comment, tearing apart certain sections and bashing me as the writer. Basically telling me to get a real job.
Some of the talk is harsh and I can't help but take some of it to heart. It look me a good year to write it and I thought the story turned out well. I know it's not everybody's cup of tea but seriously you had to bash it. If I start to read something and can't get into it, I don't finish it or leave a review. I'd only leave a review if I finished it. I would never leave a negative review for anyone as I know how hard it is to write a story.
Plus, in this day and age, everybody gets butt hurt about everything. Literally anything can set someone off. I like creating stories in my head, as it's my escape from reality. I know I've been know to look at reviews when looking into a product and if I see more negative than positive, I move on to something else.
But seriously, don't bash other authors. Some make this their living and some do this as a hobby. Mine is a little bit of both and since I'm already dealing with anxiety and depression, I don't need to see things like this, being ripped apart limb by limb, especially it being my 1st book. The only way to go is up and I should use this criticism to make the next one a blockbuster.
If you've read it or sampled Love or Lust, let me know what you think. Be gentle :)
