My First Bad Comment

Got my first bad comment over at Scary Mary. An anon wrote, "This has become so unrealistic I suggest that anyone who is still reading this read another fantasy book like Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, and it's also young adult. Trust me its a great vampire romance novel." Link.

I had to really bite my tongue when I got this comment because I'm not exactly a Meyer fan. I've only read Twilight, and will not continue reading that series. I know A LOT of people have fallen in love with that series, so talking trash about it would probably go ill for me. But I feel if this person really likes Meyers and doesn't like me, it's okay. Seems pretty logical actually. I'm not saying people can't like both our works because people probably do, but I'm not going to beat myself up about this reader being unhappy with my work. His/her tastes are clearly different from mine.

I haven't read Twilight, but then again, I'm not a big fan of vampire books. SM on the other hand, is something I would recommend, if I had any high-school age friends with regular net access.

On another note, your PW add doesn't quite work, it just links over to SM.

PW lets you link to a site of your choice when there are no active bids, but I didn't know they wouldn't indicate what site was linked. I'll change it back to PW. I thought it would have some text showing where it was linking.
