On the first day of Christmas. Sci-fi as a way of life One of the guests of honour at FantasyCon in Brighton back in Oct was the ever youthful scifi author Brian Aldiss. The second one was just as enlightening. The reviewing mentioned a few books by masters scifi writers and said that I was not there yet.

Remarks were also made about poor writing, but nothing that gave me any useful information. The most painful remark was how the book might be a good story for young readers children? Then I received the five star review which talked about how intelligent and thought provoking The Deep Dark Well was, and how I treated the reader like he had some intelligence of his own. I guess what I came away with from this is most negative reviews, even though they hurt, are pretty much useless, except to tell you that they thought you sucked as a writer.
Meaning of "double-edged sword" in the English dictionary
While many good reviews actually tell the writer something about perceived strengths and weaknesses. I corresponded with a friend who is a best selling scifi author on Amazon, and he pretty much had the same assessment. And I guess that I have arrived as a writer when I am getting attacked in the minority of reviews. It was not doing well through Sunday, and I had only given away a little less than five hundred books.
Yesterday it picked up, and by this morning I had given away 2, of them, and this evening is sitting at 2,, and was ranked 84 on Kindle Free Books for some of the afternoon. Just hope I will get some reviews out of them, and the book will pick up in sales in the coming month. Are Mondays and Tuesdays really the best days for giveaways, and the weekends not worth anything?
Or was it just a statistical blip. I was trained in graduate level statistics, and know better than to put much emphasis on a One N study, unlike the people I work for. I will track again on my next promotion in three weeks and see if there is a trend there, then report it to all of you out there. Doug, I completely agree that we can get reviews from out of nowhere.
