Okay, someone reviewed your book on Goodreads or Amazon or a blog, whatever, and they hated it. Oh wow did they hate it! They gave it one star and explained at length all the ways they think it sucks.
Now what do you do? Of course what you absolutely do not do is respond to it. Not on the review itself, not on your blog, not on Twitter, not anywhere. We’re all clear on that one by now, right? But responding and reacting are not the same. Naturally you’re going to react to it. So what options do you have to cope with it? You could of course not react at all. Accept you can’t please everyone and put it out of you mind. They’ve got the right to an opinion. I can take it. It’s just fine…no, I’m not grinding my teeth.
