I noticed that book reviews posted to UK Amazon do not show up on USA Amazon, so authors may want to check the UK Amazon now and then to see the reviews. However, reviews posted in the USA show up on UK Amazon.

As an Indie author, I am trying to learn from my reviews and learn to shape my stories in a more appealing way. Yes, nasty reviews hurt, but I do learn from fair criticisms. I want to find out which of my stories most people prefer and what they liked and didn't like. It gives me a chance to get feedback from a wide range of people. I wish more people would take the time to review. Did you like anything about the story? What worked for you? What didn't?

When someone is very nasty, I do feel like asking them to try to write a story themselves that will hold the readers interest and surprise them. I think you should try writing, at least once, before you write a critic. Coming up with a good idea and developing it, takes time and effort. Someone was very upset about the difficult to remember character names I used. They were actual historical characters in a Regency. Sigh! I have added a character list, with a brief description of the character and whether or not they are fictional; hope it helps.

We Really Must Stop Meeting This Way

We've noticed the review thing too for amazon and amazon.co.uk. As for nasty reviews, we've been there before too. We think that everybody gets a bad one sooner or later. It's not fun, but not everybody is going to like your book. Don't let it stop you though and good luck on your writing.

Iola says:
OK, I can see why someone might find Mitternich (sp?) difficult, but Castlereagh is fairly mainstream for Regency. I'd be more concerned by the overuse of commas in the Product Description, because if that is indicative of the book it would sound like Captain. Kirk. Off. Star. Trek. Just a suggestion.
