Educational

Lots of e-mails have come in responding to my Opinions post; many from disgruntled reviewers who feel they must now justify why they are entitled to make me read their reviews, and/or why they're qualified to teach me how to write novels. You guys really have to think up some new insults to hurl; sour grapes is so tired.

If you're expecting an apology, I wouldn't hold any inhalations. In fact, think of it this way: I gave you a little taste of what it's like to be in the published author's kitchen. If you can't take the heat, get out.

It's always amusing, though, to see reviewers respond to any criticism of what they do, isn't it? To feel so hurt, defensive, and outraged because PBW doesn't like them. Aw, geez, I was so mean, wasn't I? I fully expect the next five books I write will be completely trashed as a result. Btw, the SF and dark fantasy pseudonym is spelled V-i-e-h-l; try to get it right this time, huh?
