It's a blessing and a curse

Google Alerts, checking Amazon, even looking at Good Reads (which I luckily don't) - all are both a blessing and a curse for a writer. We say we want to find out what people really think. But we die a little inside if the truth is that someone hates our books. It quickly feels like they hate us.

But then there's love. Like this recent review on Amazon, for Shock Point:

"This school year's greatest find. I started with only one copy and now have 6 in the library and they're hardly ever available. A must read for reluctant readers."

That made my week!
