[...] Here’s a snippet from the next chapter of Abe’s Turn. (BTW, check out the book cover.) This connects with the previous snippet in which Clyde advises Mira caution in her feelings about Ike. [...]

To review that review - I gave up after the first two or three paragraphs, it failed to hook me, and a good review should do that. :) Re. Mira and Clyde - I think as long as a woman has to ask her friend about a relationship (to be), it's not the right one for her. But most women - and men, I'd say - don't realise it until it's too late.

Thanks, Ann and Joely. I'm feeling a lot better now. Got some quiet time today, and I stopped by the wine shop for a bottle of my favorite Merlot. (The flavor comforts me, but I have to watch the alcohol, or I'll feel worse in the morning.) I actually don't feel so bad (anymore) about the review. Negative reviews actually don't bother me, as long as they're informed, because as you say, negative hype can lead to sales. This review was not informed, however, nor did it pretend to be. But it did pretend that it was okay not to be informed, that the merits were irrelevant. So I was initially concerned that it might cause people to dismiss my work out of hand. But after a little more research, I'm coming to the conclusion that my potential fans are probably not at that site anyhow. Meanwhile, the orders continue to come in at about the same rate. I'm at least breaking even and still building a wonderful customer list. And no one has asked for their money back since the review, either. :) Seriously, though, my return rate has been well below average, even though there's a generous no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. And early results seem to indicate: no change, still good news. (Knock on wood.) -TimK

Sensible advice indeed. Sorry about that bad review--but sometimes the negative hype can still lead to sales.

Interesting snippet, and sensible advice from Clyde to Mira. Hope she listens to it. Hope you have a good weekend, and that you can get some rest.
