Then I found out that Publishers Weekly gave it a STARRED review! I've had one previous Publishers Weekly review and let me tell you, I was excited about that. Having a starred review? Put me right over the moon.
So that's the good and honestly, there isn't much bad yet. I've found most review sites would just as soon ignore a book they don't care for as publish a snarky review. There will be something, though. Someone will post something unpleasant on Amazon and someone trying to be helpful will tell me about it and I will break my rule about never ever reading Amazon reviews to go look at it and then be upset by it. But that's later.
As for WTF, well, Harriet Klausner reviewed my book. This is not a surprise. Harriet reviews every book or at least it seems like she does. She posts hundreds of reviews on Amazon and Barnes and Noble and several other websites every month. In hushed back room circles, people complain about the numerous errors in her reviews and about her willingness to give away major plot points.
Case in point, she got the title of my book wrong in my last review from her. This time, however, she says that my book, " is a fun lighthearted formic even with blood flowing freely on the California streets."
What's a formic? According to dictionary.com, it means "of or pertaining to ants." There are no ants in my story. There is one aunt, but she's a tertiary character at best. I'm guessing she meant "frolic" or "comic" or maybe even "frolic comic," but she has plastered "formic" all over the freaking Internet.
And all I can say is WTF????
