Responding To Reviews

Responding to a review is generally a bad idea. Paul Fussell called it the Author’s Big Mistake , and recently for Jacqueline Howard, author of The Greek Seaman it led to an online mob of angry readers who not only flamed the author but also took to downrating her book on Amazon. The internet is a wonderful tool for self-promotion, but it can ruin you just as fast as it can make you.
