REACTING TO BAD REVIEWS ~
Tips and Tricks from SG
You just read a very negative review of your work on a popular website – now what?
– First things first – react immediately.
– Drink. Heavily, if need be.
– Shop. Buying something expensive helps.
– Anonymously mail a dead fish to the reviewer who spoke such blasphemy against your book.
– Respond to their review, explaining why they are an ignorant douche-bag.
– Make them retract the review. Some ways include coercion, extortion, blackmail, kidnapping, and torture…
– Review them.
– Print out your bad reviews, then burn them. Or wallpaper your office – for motivation.
– Post reviewer’s address online, and encourage your fans to mail them …
THIS is how some horror authors handle bad reviews from worse reviewers…

I’ve never done this before, but this post is dedicated to Sea Caummisar and [Her] My #1 Fan.
Audiobook rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was about 25% into a reread of this yesterday when I ran into a copy of the audiobook via the author’s Twitter feed (@andersenprunty). I was doing a few things, so I switched it on right away.
Normally, (well, back when real life WAS normal), audio books are just a convenience for me, not a preference. I’ve trained my brain to become friends with my Kindle robo-voice to the point where I can listen to her during work commutes just like any narrator.
The narrator of this Audible edition of Fuckness is so fuckin’ awesome that this ‘reread’ turned into an entirely new experience.
Jeff Bower is the narrator of Fuckness, and although I’m about to stalk his ass to see what else he’s done – he could just be The Voice of Andersen Prunty in my head forevermore. (Just DL’d an audio book which A.P. narrates himself, I’ll comment more after listening.)
Jeff Bower though…how can I explain… he has this evil little giggle that he does, kind of to himself, and it adds something undefinable to his character. Love it. It reminds me of that evil, psychotic side of myself when I’m heartily laughing at something that I shouldn’t be – does that help explain it?
I just made a quote from this book into a #BleedingMeme, check it out the new #BleedingMemes Page HERE.
Looking for the audiobook code? There are some codes left for many of his books, US and UK, HERE.
So, I’m trying to link you up to Jeff Bower directly, but I’m getting lost in infinite link loops. Oh, the horror!! But, I am seeing that he narrates non-fiction Wicca books, so… another bonus point for Jeff! (UPDATE: Twitter @JeffBowerLA – Loving husband. Aspiring Muppet.)
