Question of the Day

A reader on Goodreads reviewed Truly, Madly: "A delightful no-brainer."

My question: should I be happy or insulted?

I'm leaning toward happy, because delightful is well...delightful.

  1. Definitely focus on the "delightful" part. With all the headaches and problems in the world right now, there is a desperate need for delight and no-brainers. Congratulations!

  2. Yeah. Leave the thinking to those uppity smart people.

  3. Be happy, very happy. Many readers use novels as a way to escape all that thinking and their own thoughts. It allows the reader (your target audience) to completely immerse themselves in the world and adventures you created, with very little effort on their part making the whole book much more enjoyable for them.

  4. Thanks everyone. I guess a backhanded compliment is still a compliment, right?

    I'm also thinking I shouldn't read reviews... LOL.
