What two bad reviews did to my book sales this month.
I had just been starting to climb out of the hole I’d been in from not writing due to depression and various other problems… finally at a daily income that covers my basic needs to live and boom - hit with two reviews on my two latest books that tanked my income over night right down into $30 a day territory which might seem like a lot for book sales but when you consider that’s my only income… ouch.
I respect reviewers. I totally do. And I’m not gonna tell you not to leave your 1* review because that would be wrong of me.
Also not every bad review I’ve ever gotten has tanked my sales so badly. It does hurt but not normally this much. I’m just frustrated because the commens I got were “wasn’t long enough for what I paid” when my books are the price of a cup of coffee AND it clearly states how many pages a book is in the details on the Amazon sale page.
So it’s a little frustrating. And disappointing when you get a bad review that hurts your income drastically and was over something the reviewer knew about before they bought the book and chose to buy it anyway.
Oh well! At least i got my fic comments. 🤣🤣🤣
