Reading reviews. The good. The Bad. And the stick a fork in me I’m done.

Before I became a published author, I was told by many author friends not to read my reviews, that it would make me crazy in the end. But I  must love to live in a world of insanity because I just can’t help myself.

I sit down at my computer every day and I look and see if a new one has been posted. Why? Because I’m a rebel? A masochist? Screwed in the head?

No. Well, maybe some of the above.

Actually, I read them because they seem to help me realize that I don’t suck, that I am reaching my intended audience, and that the point I wanted to get across in my stories is coming across.

Now, I understand that not everyone is going to like my book, some may even hate…it is as they say all subjective, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I think I owe anyone who has taken the time to read what I have written a moment to see how they felt about it. Maybe they loved it and want to read more. Maybe they hated with a fiery passion, either way, I as an author need to know what is hitting home with my readers and what isn’t.

So far I have been lucky and none of the semi-negative reviews have been wanting-to-slit-my-wrists-bad, most have been favorable in fact. Those are the ones that make me smile. Then there are the ones that make me think, “what could have done different to make this reader connect with this story?” The answer, nothing really, my writing isn’t for them, or the story didn’t resonate.

“No two persons ever reads the same book” – Edmund Wilson

 

The above quote is one of my favorites, and something that I remind myself everytime I dive into a new review.

So during this time of thanks, I want to take a moment and thank everyone who has taken a moment to read my story and leave me their thoughts and opinions. They are truly appreciated.

Title: Struck Byvirtual-book-fair-graphic Eros

Author: Jenn Windrow

Summary: One jaded woman. Two hot men. A challenge to prove Cupid doesn’t always know best.

After a lifetime of dating losers, Noel Chase thinks she’s found love with college professor Len Holder.
But Cupid’s aim sucks worse than his crap-tacular curse, sticking her with supposed soul mate, Grayson Adler. Grayson is gorgeous, Greek, and an exact replica of the man-whores of her past. No matter what the chubby cherub thinks, Noel is sure Grayson is Mr. Wrong with a capital “W.”

Forced to do Cupid’s bidding, Noel must spend her days with Grayson matchmaking the unlucky-in-loves, and trying to resist Grayson’s charm and do-me-now sex appeal. But when Cupid tries to match her fiancé, Len, with another woman, Noel must make an excruciating decision. Defy Cupid and hang on to Len? Or succumb to her fate and trust Grayson with her heart?

About the author: Jenn Windrow loves characters that have a pinch of spunk, a dash of attitude, and a large dollop of sex appeal. Top it all off with a huge heaping helping of snark, and you’ve got the ingredients for the kind of fast paced stories she loves to read and write. Home is a suburb of it’s-so-hot-my-shoes-have-melted-to-the-pavement Phoenix. Where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and a slew of animals that seem to keep following her home, at least that’s what she claims.
