I wanted to share a review of The Diary of The Depressed Moose that was posted on amazon.co.uk yesterday.
It was the 6th review I had received but the first that was not a 5 star review, in fact it was a 2 star review that ripped the book to pieces
Fair enough I hear you say, people are entitled to their opinion, especially when they have paid for your book. I can accept bad reviews when warranted.
BUT, and this is where it gets interesting and personal.
The person who left that review is Sheryl’s bets friend! Someone who I do not like and who does not like me.
Sheryl told her about the book, she did not find it on a random search! and for her to post a review like this is an attack on me because of our dislike for each other!
Yet, I do nothing to her never speak to her, never discourage Sheryl from seeing her and certainly would not waste my breath on something like this which could have an adverse affect on sales of my book.
The problem is that because of this spiteful act my confidence, and happy mood, has been shot to pieces! All the negative thoughts I had been working hard to block out came tumbling out again last night and seeing as she herself suffers depression I believe she knew exactly what would happen when I saw this review.
And so I am back to square one because of a “friend”.
Sheryl is not impress to say the least…
