Being a writer means you have to develop a thick skin. I was updating my Publications page earlier tonight and needed to get the date that a particular anthology was released. While doing so I wandered across a review of said book… and while they enjoyed it, they singled out my contribution as being one that they felt was lacking. In fact, they made it clear that they felt it didn’t deserve to be included at all.


I thought my story was pretty good but obviously everyone has their own opinions. As long as you’re putting your hard-earned money down to buy the book, you certainly have the right to share your views on the contents!

Over the years, I’ve gotten more positive reviews than negative but it’s human nature to focus on the bad side, I suppose.

Work continues on the new Straw-Man story. Hopefully it’ll receive a positive reaction when it’s finally released.
