Interesting review

Recently, I received a poor review from someone and it was interesting for me the points that they made. Becoming an author I expected some bad reviews, not everyone will like what I write. It's just a fact of life.

I looked up the reviewer profile and there was no information, none. So them making the statement "usually" doesn't hold a lot of water for me.

Another interesting point they made was my lifestyle is "seemed quite hypocritical for someone who is 'live and let live'". Guess they didn't realize that "to live and let live" means I don't care what you do as long as I don't have to join in with what they are doing.

As for the advice customers do ask me about the toys and how to use them. It's been happening for over two years now. According to this reviewers viewpoint I guess the person at the grocery store should have tried all of the food in the store.

The "shocking and hilarious" stories they are referring to? Whipping it out in public isn't shocking? What world are they possibly from that something like that isn't shocking? Of course, they refer to me as a reader.

The person that wrote the review has shown me how clueless they really are with both what and how they've written it. I'm having a really good laugh at the review they left.

Here is the review that I am referring to for Confessions Of A Porn Store Clerk

Disappointingly poor

Don't usually review, especially negatively, but would have to agree with an earlier reviewer.

This book is awfully written - at points almost incomprehensible. I also got the opinion that the writer is really closed minded about sex, doggedly pushing the fact that his lifestyle is straight and totally vanilla - it seemed quite hypocritical for someone who is 'live and let live'.

If someone is that closed minded to experimenting with anything sexually why should anyone take his advice?

What the reader believes are shocking and hilarious stories actually don't meet the hype and just support the fact of how little he really knows.



  1. You know the great things about reviews like this? It actually makes people curious. Look at 50 Shades... Almost 1/2 of the reviews are, not only how horribly written the novel is, but how disturbing. And yet, people keep downloading, knowing they will probably hate.

    Very strange. I've never bought into hype of any movie or book. If you strike my attention, I read or watch. I actually refuse to read reviews prior to reading because it's so hard to surprise me with a storyline, just their little blurbs give the ending away. That said, rejoice in the fact that you brought out a reaction, as it means the characters are real to the reader. Congrats! :)

  2. I agree with Carmen.

  3. Thank you both for your comments.
