Troy McCombs Getting positive reviews from people who enjoy my books and learning what people don't like about them so I can improve next time.

Just think... JK Rowling had an agent tell her no kids would read Harry Potter. Listen to your heart and follow the beat. Only you can stop you. And if you're scared of getting bad reviews, remember, everyone has 1 stars. Everyone. Art is fickle and highly subjective.(less)
