Perhaps one of the greatest and worst things about having my book published is receiving the reviews of strangers. Being that I do not know these people, they are not inclined to tell me what I want to hear, so when I peruse the reviews on sites such as Amazon, I hold my breath a little. I expect something brutal – some mockery of my writing skills – and yet, when I am met with positivity, it’s the best thing in the world. Having random people read my book and enjoy it is incredible. And it’s putting my pessimism to shame.
