Blogging Question: How do you handle the writing of a negative review?
If I have to write a negative review, I draft it and let it sit for a while. When I go back to it, I make sure that I’m being as objective as possible (even though book reviewing is incredibly subjective). Instead of being emotional, I try to explain why something didn’t work for me. And I always take the time to look for something that does work for me, even if it was overwhelmed by what didn’t.
Show Me Your Cover: What are some of the worst book covers, but hold some of the best stories inside? Don’t be embarrassed, show us your cover!
I came up with more than I expected. These I don’t hate, but I LOVE all of these books and think the covers are kind of cheesy. They probably turn off readers who would love these books.
And my final choice… I actually love this cover. It’s cute and it fits the book, but this book is ADORABLE and FUN and I’m just not sure it will reach the right audience. This is a book I’d kind of like everyone to read. Because it’s great.
I’m done now. And really excited to see everyone elses answers.
EDIT: I love Feature and Follow, but am not participating this week. I made a decision not to fantasy cast books for many reasons, but I am looking forward to visiting the blogs that are participating.
