|Author Kelly Collins|
I’m not sure if it’s the same with other authors, but when I release a book, it’s like taking my child to school for the first time.
I introduce them to the world, hope that people will appreciate them, like them, and want to hang out for a while.
Once my book has been released it’s often graded. A lot of authors cringe when they see a new review on either Amazon or Goodreads, but I like them. Whether they are good or bad, I think they have value and we can learn from the experience. Here are some things that I have learned.
- You can't please everyone.
- Some people are just down right mean.
- Some people are just down right nice.
- Don't take things too seriously.
- Understand that you wrote the book and pushed publish, and that's an accomplishment within itself.
- Just keep writing.
- Love what you do.
|The Dean's List by Kelly Collins|
I love the fact that I have fans, and that they are willing to put their hard earned money towards the words that I write. I will continue to write for these people and hope that they can persuade others to come hang out for a while.
So, as for reviews...hate them or love them. I’ll take them all and learn from them.
I’ve just sent a new book out for everyone to meet. I hope that you will like it. The Dean’s List is compelling, controversial and completely swoon worthy.
