As a new author one of my challenges is obtaining numbers of reviews. Amazon likes numbers. The more reviews you have, the better they like you. Numbers. Really.
I’ve been blessed that most of the reviews for Dangerous Secrets have been five stars. None have been less than three. Everyone likes to read those five star reviews. Sometimes, though they point out your **gulp** flaws even while rating the book highly.
Today i broke a cardinal rule and decided to read the lowest ones. Imagine my surprise to discover that they were quite lovely reviews. None were trolls. Kind words for the author abounded. I realize I can’t always be that lucky. Maybe I won’t break that rule again. Maybe.
