Authors and the Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad, No Good Review
Every author gets a bad review now and then, but nothing is worse than the anonymous hyperbolic reviews that appear on sites like Amazon and GoodReads. Author Marc Tyler Nobleman turned it around by filming himself reading an excerpt from his worst review. And when he invited other authors and illustrators to join him, he was surprised to get 52 responses. They are all posted on his blog, Noblemania. Hilarious!
