It matters to me what is said about me because I have daughters. Recently a reviewer accused me of putting RAPE into a book that has no sex scene. The Heroine starts the book as a virgin and she is intact 400 pages later. It is a book about loss and sorrow and the healing powers of love. It is the farthest thing from a book that would contain a rape scene... and I would never write a rape scene, because I have daughters.
Good reviews. Bad reviews. I read and appreciate both. I have never knocked anyone for their opinion of my books and I am not doing so now. Merely making a polite request. I appreciate that my work will not appeal to everyone. But it's my party, and I'm going to keep writing they way I want to.
What hurts me is the untruthful review because they often contain things I find offensive and cruel. I am a mother of daughters and a grandmother. I would never write a rape scene. My books are filled with the love I hold in my heart for my girls, little notes from me to them. So please, do not treat me unkindly. At a minimum, make sure your reviews, good or bad, reflects the work you are speaking of.
As ever I wish you Peace.
