A Bit Nervous

My book, Born to Run, will be part of an ad All Romance eBooks put together for the October issue of Romantic Times. This isn't the first time I've been involved in a ad, On the Run was part of the Linden Bay ad earlier this year, but this is the first time my book won the drawing for a review.

Can you say, OMG?

Romantic Times is a great magazine because it does honest reviews. I respect any review site or magazine that does that. But it makes it hard for someone who is a writer. You want people to like your books, yet you know not everyone will. It's especially hard for someone like me who is just starting out.

I've already had one not-so-positive review for Born to Run, and even though I requested it, it still hit the ego hard. But the very reason I did request it was because I wanted that honesty.

On the Run also got a mixed review, and again, my ego was bruised, but I was a better person in the end. I need to know where I might be going wrong.

I'm just not sure what Romantic Times is going to think of my book. I'm just hoping I get at least a three star...because if I get a one star, I might end up under my desk in the fetal postion. LOL

What can you do? It's part of being a writer. And as long as someone is reading it, and it's getting promoted, that's all that counts.
