I was looking at my Goodreads Author Page today. I must confess, I don’t pay very close attention to it, using the account more to lurk than anything. But today, I did notice I had reviews on there I wasn’t aware of until now. Most were quite positive, which is nice.
I know many of my fellow authors worry about reviews. How to get them, how to deal with negative reviews, and so on. I really don’t worry about them that much. My work consists of novellas written in the erotic romance genre. They’re meant to provide a quick, entertaining read and are hardly profound works of art, so really, I don’t expect lots of reviews. Plus, not that many people are eager to attach their names to a review of any kind of erotic fiction, so I’m quite grateful for the reviews I do get on Goodreads and on Amazon. I did have one “meh” review on Amazon, but the reviewer was careful to say it was because it just wasn’t their cup of tea. Which was quite thoughtful of that person, I think!
