Image: Trip AdvisorSooner or later, every author has to deal with the pain of receiving a bad review.

I’m guest blogging today at Chick Lit Goddess about the five common stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance which I’ve observed in myself and other writers. But fear not, in pain there is also humour to be found!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the image is courtesy of Trip Advisor for a random hotel in Mexico, not for my book 🙂

    Heading over to Chick Lit Goddess right now – so relieved the rating is for a cheesy hotel room in Mexico! So creative that you used that graph for your post!

    Thanks, Julie – I was originally looking for a book with poor reviews… but then I realized I could use my Mexico vacation research for the purpose!
