It's Wednesday, and I'm having a good day. Initial reaction to Soul Protector has been far better than I dared to hope. It gives me such a buzz knowing people are reading it - but telling me they 'couldn't put it down,' 'had to go to bed early so they could carry on reading,' 'it's bloody brilliant,' and 'never read a book so quick before,' are all helping me believe I did okay.
I know Soul Protector won't be everyone's cup of tea - no book ever is - but knowing some people are enjoying it is fantastic. Once you make a book available, you open yourself up to be judged, and it's more scary than I thought.
If, (and I'm pretty sure it will happen), I get a nasty review, I will make myself look back at these comments, instead of cowering in the corner with my head in my hands.
But, even if I get ninety-nine good reviews, and one bad one, which one do you think will stick in my head? Human nature, aargh!
