Woke up early this morning and for some reason instead of just rolling over and going back to sleep, I decided to look at Episode One’s Amazon page. It had been a couple days and I was worried that they had done something and that’s why I hadn’t had any downloads in the last few days. Nope that wasn’t it. I am now the owner of my first one star review.
Since I’ve only got one other review, a five star, my average is now down to three. Really bummed out about that.
The review complains about the length and style. Both things I knew I would probably get reviewed on since it’s an episodic series written in first person. Based on other people I know of with episodic series, getting a review about the length is common. Evidently even if you put a disclaimer in your blurb, which I did, it doesn’t matter.
I had hoped when this happened I would have accumulated more reviews and a one star wouldn’t be a huge impact. I was wrong. Even with a plea for reviews at the end of each episode I’ve only had two.
It doesn’t really help that the review is, in one place, misspelled.
Positive, they didn’t bad mouth the editing, though the way the review is written some people might imply bad editing.
I think I’m just going to go back to sleep now.
