Keeping Your Sanity When Dealing With Bad Reviews

REACTING TO BAD REVIEWS ~

Tips and Tricks from SG

You just read a very negative review of your work on a popular website – now what? 

– First things first –  react immediately.
Drink. Heavily, if need be.
Shop. Buying something expensive helps.
– Anonymously mail a dead fish to the reviewer who spoke such blasphemy against your book.
Respond to their review, explaining why they are an ignorant douche-bag.
