Having only published my first novel a month ago, I have been positively giddy over the reviews it has garnered (all but one of them 5 stars and with very glowing commentary). Today, though, I got a much less kind review (3 stars) that included some complaints that I don't understand or can't agree with. What's funny is my emotional reaction to one out of 15 reviews seems totally out of proportion to both the "negative" aspects of the critique and the harm I feel it may have done. Truth is, the review wasn't totally awful, just not complimentary. How do you all deal with the emotional disturbance of people not treating you like the super star you know you are? (That was mildly tongue-in-cheek...). How much harm does one mediocre review do to a book with so few total reviews? Unfortunately, because I published with BookBaby, I have no access to sales figures to follow trends prior to and after reviews. Worried now about being a worry-wart. Oh, the irony.
