Dear people who think they are my “critics,” I’m letting them know today that they are not! You are some type of low to vote one star on people’s stories when I’m not out to get reviews in the first place. I’m only typing for therapy and for people who are already interested in my soapbox rants. I have my critics and it certainly isn’t their condescending style-like review ripping apart people’s books. I don’t speak with those types of reviewers. I didn’t ask for their opinions, either, so I don’t know why they feel the need to share it.
I know some people at Amazon forums ask others to review their work and then whine when they don’t like the inputs, but I didn’t do that.
Unfortunately, because the intro “The Phantom Menance: No Name No Face” to getting the one star bullies off their high horses has obviously failed because people still kept leaving one star review trolls on my short story collection calling them out for that, I have decided to write a full length novel about these one star trolls. It especially irritates me because other than the three one star reviews, no one has dared to leave a positive review on the publishing sites when the trolls are lurking the reviews and will down vote their positive comments so people don’t bother to say they liked my short stories on the publishing sites. Now does this make sense how people like reading my blog but when I publish something on Amazon or Smash Words I get one star reviews? That doesn’t add up to me so I know there are no good lurkers also lurking my blog. Are people that jealous of me or something that they’re willing to stalk my review comments so no one who likes my things will comment on the publishing sites making it seem like “no one” likes my stories when the only reviews made are one star reviews?
Will the idiots behind this still vote one star on an entire book simply calling them out for the kinds of people they are? You’re probably wondering how I am managing to type a full length book all about one star bullies and keep it interesting — I’m at 30,000 words ish right now with that. This is one of my most clever ideas yet. It’s not an entire book complaining about one star bullies, oh no. I had typed one page like that and I was irritated with the way I wrote that so I changed it into an actual story instead of a blog type rant. I tried to see if anyone else has written full length stories about one star bullies, but I couldn’t find any other than people’s blog posts with their experiences they publish for free.
If anyone comes across actual books where people talk about their experiences with one star bullies, please let me know! I’m interested in reading a book about one star bullies.
Stop leaving these asinine reviews on my stories, especially when it sounds like you didn’t even read my stories! I dare you to leave a one star review on my book about you when it comes out. In fact, I know you will anyway. I’m just baiting you to see if you will since you have before.
So you think because I publish short stories, that gives you the right to vote one star on them? Or what? If I publish a novel are you going to vote one star on it?
