Bad Reviews, it isn't the end of the world

To all my author friends who may be feeling down about a bad review I'd like to offer some advice. Go to and search some of the hottest books around classic or new, 50 Shades of Grey, The Davinci Code, Interview with The Vampire, and read some of the scathing reviews. Believe me there are plenty. It helps me remember that some people simply won't like your work, whether it be subject matter or writing style and there are some (perhaps people you even know) who just want to criticize you and have the opportunity through a negative review. Chin up fellow writers, even the biggest selling authors in the world get stung every once in a while if not every day!
