The first review for No Place Like Home isn't a good one. At all. The reader really, really, really hated the story. And while it sucks that they didn't like it, I was able to accept the review. After all, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I just hope it doesn't keep others from giving the story a chance.
I spent at least a year working on this novella. It isn't a romantic story, so I already have that against me. There's no love story to pull readers in. This is a story about a broken family, and the death of a seventeen year old girl. It has a somewhat open ending (something I've explained previously), allowing the readers to decide what they think happens after the final scene. I think the easiest way to describe the story is by saying it is a bit like If I Stay, and I say this because after Savannah's death, she is still on Earth. She spends her time looking after Jeremy, all while trying to figure out how she died.
I haven't seen any reviews on The Yearning yet, but I know there are a decent amount of copies loaded up on e-readers. So I'm expecting negative reviews to poor in shortly; I always hope that readers will love my stories, but I go in expecting the worst. It makes rejection from readers easier to deal with.
If you need me on August 13th, the re-launch date for Capture and Program 13, you'll be able to find me in my closet. In the fetal position. Shaking. I'm dreading the reviews of these re-release titles. Dreading, I tell you.
