I don’t intend to share a lot of posts for other writers on this blog. But today is an exception because the subject matter applies just as much to book reviewers (including readers who post reviews on third party websites like Amazon).
This episode deals with the issue of negative book reviews and authors who went on the attack over them. You’ll hear a few crazy stories you may or may not have heard yet, and we offer some tips that will hopefully help you take negative reviews less personally. Given my PR background working with authors and other creative types, reputation management is an issue near and dear to my heart.
This episode features my first guest co-host, Princess Jones. I don’t run an interview-style podcast, so it’s set up as more of a casual chat. Apologies for the call quality. This was the first test run with that particular setup. For the more sensitive among us, be forewarned the episode does contain some foul language. You can stream or download the episode below.
The All Indie Writers podcast is currently on hiatus due to some technical issues including a host move. It’s due to return soon though, so if you have book marketing questions or any other topic suggestions that apply to indie authors feel free to comment here or email me and I’ll consider them for a future episode if I can round up an appropriate guest.
