One of the most entertaining things about being a published author is reading the reviews of your books. I’m not one of those that expects all 4 and 5 star reviews because I know only too well that we are all different. It is so true that you cannot please everyone. Authors must live with this and not get all upitty when some reader gives them a lashing; the worst thing to do is respond to a bad review. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. My approach is to accept all reviews, comments and ratings gratefully. I’m glad to say that On My Knees has had some terrific reviews and I thank those who have posted them, but I also want to thank some of those who have been critical for giving me the idea for this post. Love at first sight.
I have been surprised that there are readers of romance who don’t believe in ‘insta love’, as one called it. Well, it happens in On My Knees because I do believe in it. And you want to know why? I believe in it because it happened to me. I met my guy on the Friday evening, a brief encounter if ever there was one (less than an hour), and was smitten. He gave me his card with his office number on it so I had to wait the whole weekend before I could call him and it drove me crazy. I called him on the Monday morning and we met again that evening. I moved in with him within a fortnight and we bought a house together within two months. We’ve now been together fourteen years and grow closer by the day.
So, I wondered just how many of you believe? Why not leave a comment? And if I can work this properly, vote in the poll.
