Do tell readers how much you like them.
Don't tell people who gave you a bad review how much they may suck.
While I am talking about reviews, what do you consider a bad review? Here is what I think a bad review is: 0-1 star, yeah, that's bad. 2-3 is average but not BAD. 4-5 is great!
So when I see on Goodreads lots of 3-4-5 star ratings and a few 1-2 that tells me the book is good or decent. Now, if it has a lot of 1-2 star ratings and very little 3-5 star ratings that tells me the book is not so hot.
This seems logic right?
The problem with this though, is sometimes Authors tend to look at only the bad reviews and focus on this. Only this. And they really shouldn't. What? Yes, I mean what I said. Don't focus on the three or five bad reviews out of 200. Seriously, what does that matter?
The only thing this tells you is that 195 or more people think your book is Amazing! 3 to 5 people don't. Wow.
How about these odds, there are over a billion people in the world. There is one person out of a billion that doesn't care for your book. Wow, again, wow.
So, let me ask you this, why are you focused on the negative review? 1 out of a billion. Odds don't seem so terrible now do they? That review isn't that scary now is it?
