I was reading through the posts in an author’s forum and an author asked how to delete negative comments on an Amazon review. The answer, of course, was that it was impossible. Another asked whether or not she should respond to a critic with an explanation as to why her protagonist did, in fact, make sense.
I laughed a bit to myself not only at the absurdity of both inquiries, but because as a writer with a book coming out this spring, I will most likely pay the most attention to the worst feedback or the fewest stars and wish I could do the same.
