Do you read reviews on your books and if so, do you respond to them?
No and no. You know, you ask a very good question here. But no, I don’t look at the reviews. Who was it that said you can please some of the people all the time and all the people some of the time but you can’t please all the people all the time? I recognize that not everyone is going to like my books, and that’s ok. I’m not going to worry about it. I write because I enjoy it, and I like what I’ve written. I’m not going to change my style because some people don’t like it or because some people think it should be different to come down to their level. My books aren’t necessarily easy to read, and I’m not going to make them easy to read. You either like my writing and my style or you don’t. If you’ve got good things to say, I appreciate it. Keep spreading the word to friends and family and the public. That’s a great way for people to find out about my work. If you don’t like it, say what you want to say too.
