One unique thing about writing for Heartsong Presents Romance is the feedback sheets included at the back of each book. The reader is encouraged to tear these sheets out and fill them out, answering questions about what they liked and didn't like about the story.
This past week, I received my first feedback sheets. People were very nice. They made lots of nice comments. Only one person didn't like the book so much. Many people said they enjoyed it very much.
So which one do you think I thought about the most? The many who liked it? Nope, I thought about the one who said she didn't.
After a bit, I realized I was circling a dead-end drain with these thoughts. I decided to let it go. I decided to stop focusing on the negative, and take a look at the positive. I've got the names of some lovely ladies who cared enough about my book to write in and encourage me. So part of my to-do list this week includes writing some thank you notes.
Because nothing gets you thinking right like saying and being thankful.
Question for you: Have you ever gotten negative feedback that had your head spinning? What did you do to get your head on straight?
