Book reviews are important to authors because they can boost sales. In the post I’m sharing today, Paula talks about her positive reaction to a negative review. Enjoy!
The thing I worried most about when I had my first novel published was the reviews I might receive. Being dyslexic and depending on others to proofread my manuscript makes me even more nervous about grammar and punctuation, if overlooked by editors. Being a reader myself, I often read reviews on other author’s books and knew reviewers were fond of highlighting grammatical issues, typos, and punctuation, along with problems they came across with plot, characters, historical facts etc.

An ultracrepidarian is someone who criticizes your work without knowing a thing about why you do what you do. Sometimes, I think a person who writes a negative book review is an ultracrepidarian who wouldn’t know a good book if it hit him in the nose. You can learn more about this word and how it evolved at the link below.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
