Just One Opinion
In my last post, I posted the review Piers Anthony gave my book in his Mayhem 2016 newsletter. I was really excited about it, but he did note something important in his email: he said 'Remember, it's just one opinion'. I had to realize that even an endorsement from a famous author isn't going to magically increase my sales. I don't want to downplay how appreciative and excited I am for the review, but I want to remember that each review I receive is equally valuable. The mother in West Virginia who got the book for her son, or the woman from the UK, each of whom recently gave me 5-star reviews, are equally valuable. When I started this book I committed myself to writing the whole series, even if only one person enjoyed the first book. I am holding to that. Giving a single person enjoyment - even if that single person is me - is a good enough reason to write a book.
