To review or not to view! What does a one star really say?

So any who follow me know that my To Darkness with Love series has been a love hate relationship for me. This book is my own project and probably not one most want to read. For that I'm alright with it!

I write for myself and on the off chance people check it out, maybe enjoying them as I go.

This series was my first romance in the YA department. I usually hang out in the paranormal section were I seem to fit in better. LOL. In saying that this book hit me, drop me to my knees like a lotus then my realization that this book was mine no one else has the right to belittle me on my writing unless they can say the same I am here. I use an editor due to I am not one, I am getting into doing my own cover art to save a few buck. If it begins to back fire then I will go back to my cover artist. But the big thing I have to say is this. I have the Courage to hit that publish button putting myself out there for those who like to rape me of my creativity or the way I do my thing. I am tired of the Judging when maybe you have not had the ability to do as I am; live a dream that is for me or anyone who wants to ride along on my journey. Words hurt weather I am an adult or not. Tough skin helps a lot but who do these people readers really think they are. I see it on other authors sites, on their reviews on Amazon. I do read too; and it sickens me that they pray on us. If they don't like the book ok, then just say that you didn't like it not the whole detail of why and what the author did wrong. That's the readers opinion the author more then likely wrote the book as they intended. Yes maybe you wanted it to be different but guess what the author didn't. The end...
Creativity weather in writing, painting, sculpture or slam poetry... to each their own!!!! 

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear~ Mark Twain

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing,
while others judge us by what we have already done.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Whoever undertakes to set himself up
as a judge of Truth and Knowledge
is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
- Albert Einstein

When you are tempted to judge,
may you be reminded that we are ALL ONE,
and that every thought you think reverberates
across the universe touching everyone and everything.
- from the Simple Truths movie May You Be Blessed

We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
- Henry Ward Beecher

Don't judge me, you can't handle half of what I've dealt with. There's a reason I do the things I do, there's a reason I am who I am.~ Unknown
