Q-Do you read your reviews if so how do handle the negative ones written?
A-Sometimes, for a few days after release and then I usually stop. Most often, I just smile or laugh at the negative ones bc usually, they’re so far off of the storyline I wonder if they have the right book and/or they nit pick and well...can’t please ‘em all.
