Why I'm Staying Away From Goodreads For Awhile...
There's been way too much drama going around on Goodreads lately between authors and reviewers. I do not appreciate these authors trolling the reviews and then writing mean nasty comments about the reviewer later on twitter and/or other public social media sites. It is a real disgrace to the community. If you're confused follow the links below and it'll explain everything that's been happening since the year began.
This, scroll down to message # 3 (I'm still in complete shock!)
Incidents # 1- 5 Summarized
And then finally the one that set me over the edge:
Authors: If you're not able to develop thick skin then you're unprepared for the business. Getting negative reviews is part of the job description. Not everyone is going to like your book. If you're going to say something mean about a reviewer who took the time to write a review for your book then please do it in private via email, and not in public social media sites such as twitter where EVERYONE can see what you're saying.
Rant over. That's all I have to say. -__-
What do YOU think about all the drama that's been happening lately?
