Hi Jason,

Thanks for asking the question. I've actually been really lucky that the feedback I've gotten from reviews has been really good so far. I'm sure in the future I'll probably get negative reviews that I might not agree with but I tend to look at it from a learning perspective. I probably won't read the 1 star reviews because these tend to come from people who just hate what you've produced no matter what it is. I'll try and take on board the suggestions in the other reviews to a certain extent. It's just too hard to please everybody.

I've had a lot of suggestions from critique partners/beta readers that I didn't necessarily agree with either to begin with but I think as writers we can't help keeping all suggestions at the back of our minds and even if it's just on a subconscious level I think it affects our future writing.

If I wasn't so desperate to keep up with my Goodreads challenge this would have been a DNF.

Not a single redeeming character in the while novel. No thanks.

I've realised why I am not adoring this series the way so many others seem to be. I don't like the psy. Every psy heroine has bored me silly. They are all carbon-copies of each other. At some point the whole virginal-fake-strong thing gets a little o ...more

Sherre Copeland I love the way Poison has changed since I read it a while ago, at least as far as I can tell from the synopsis. Looking forward to it!

No I haven't yet. I hear mixed reviews. I think they're a bit more slow paced whereas I like lots of action. Have you read them?

Lani Young Hi Lan - have you read Shiver and Linger - those wolf books by Maggie S?


Ashley (Bookaholics Anonymous) YEA!!!! I saw where you posted about writing reviews I usually just use the one I put up on my blog that way you're not actually writing two different ones. Plus, some people on here don't have regular blogs.
