Single panel comic. Man and woman sit at sofa with digital devices. Woman is crying. She says, I can't believe this. She screeches and utters nonsense syllables. The man seems concerned. He says, Oh no. What's wrong? The woman says, They reviewed my book and said it was good! End of comic.
Pretty sure this is how I would react to a negative review, as well. >.>

Welcome! About a month ago, I received my very first review for my debut novel, Fillius Glint. It was from Kirkus Reviews, one of the trusted trade reviews of the publishing world. Even though I paid for the review, there was absolutely no guarantee that it would be a positive one. So, I was pleasantly surprised when their review was overwhelmingly positive. And the above panel captures precisely how I reacted to the news. Even weirder?

Talk about spooky! Haha.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please come again soon! *waves*

Wishing you the best,
