Great article, and so true!

It's terrifying when you've put your hard work out there for all the world to judge. And with 7.5 billion people out there, you will invariably have varied responses from a 'yes' to marmite or 'no', and all the permutations in between. So take every response with a pinch of salt - as it's only an opinion on how they respond to it. Which in itself is a gift.... cherry pick what gives you inspiration for your next book (even if it's negative.. character building for.. the villain perhaps)??
