1-Star Reviews, Emergency Help for Authors

Just got burned with a 1-star review? Here's what to do.

Why trash when you can discuss? Or enjoy?

Author Laini Taylor posted to her blog about being confused by internet lynch mobs tearing apart movies they haven’t even seen.

Some quotes from her post:

“Really, people? That’s how you spend your evenings, chortling over nasty reviews? Sad.”

and

“I understand, in weak private moments — ahem — how one might have a nasty inner twinge of schadenfreude or ill will; in my experience, when one is, ehh, molested by such unworthy feeling — it is like a dark moth batting around your head, stinking and leaving soot stains — it is because of jealousy, and is short-lived. Better nature prevails, and you keep it the eff to yourself.”

Read her full post and the comments: Saw John Carter. Loved it. What the hell, people?
