You finally get some new reviews, when suddenly BAMMO! You get a 1 or 2 star review. After you cry a little and then grab a glass of wine, what do you do? How do you deal with the negative reviews that pop up every so often?

Honestly, from a customers point of view, I think a bad review would affect my perception of the book but if the review is bad then I don't really pay much attention to it. I personally prefer books referred by friends but if I do buy a book which a friend of mine hasn't read, I track down online the author and check out their other articles before I decide to buy one of their books. Authors need not to worry about bad reviews, they add credibility to the book but too much bad reviews, then you've got a problem in hand? Thanks for sharing in Bizsugar!

Hi Nicole,

Bad reviews and criticisms are a part of life. There's just no getting around it. And, I would add that some criticism can be very helpful. Like it or not, it's true! In fact, being ignored is probably worse. So thank your lucky stars for your critics and look for what they can teach you.
