I just saw my book review by Kirkus Review. I’ve also been viewing other reviews on Goodreads.com. Sometimes an author is nervous about what others think about their work. But when you put yourself out there, it is bound to be liked by some, and not by others. I like readers to read reviews and maybe even check out the first few pages of the book on the Inside Feature on Amazon or digital search on Google. Sometimes by reading the book itself, you can tell if you like it from the first chapter or so.
Personally, I can’t get through Jane Austin. I hated “Catcher in the Rye”. But I love Anne Rice, Melissa Marr, and even the Twilight series. I really don’t think Stephanie Meyer is a bad writer. She gets the storytelling job done. How it is done, is often a personal choice in style, word choice, and how a writer perceives the world. If you love a book, say so. If you hate a book, say so. Isn’t free speech grand?
