Have you ever had a fallout with an author because you didn't like their book?
I have. Three names come to mind but for the purpose of avoiding drama, they will remain anonymous. Let me give you a general overview of what happened as its basically the same: I've known these talented writers since the first year of Talk Supe and a friendly symbiotic relationship began.
Things fell apart after I read one of their recent works, disliked it, and gave my honest opinion. I never heard from them since and I can't help but feel punished because I cared enough to pick out the things that didn't work for me versus lying and giving a fake five just so I can save their star rating average? That would be very disingenuous of me and go against the basic principles of my platform.
Anyway, has this happened to you? Do you mind sharing your experience? Was the issue resolved?
Moving on to other topics, Tonyalee of Lilybloom Books did a blog content survey last week. I've seen and answered a few of these surveys and decided to do one for Talk Supe. My 5 year blogiversary is coming up and I think it's time I ask around and see if this is still a worthwhile hobby and if changes are needed to make this endeavor more effective. Thanks for answering the survey in advance!
