I recently read a book that an author sent me to review.
Based on the cover, I was excited to read the book, however I thought it was terrible.
Following some advice from a highly respected blogger, I went ahead and posted my honest review, and emailed the author to let her know that I posted my review and that I was sorry the review couldn't have been more positive.
Well, she sent back a nasty reply, and has now made a similar reply on my amazon review. Additionally, I have received another comment on the review which is amazingly almost word for word another email that the author emailed to me.
I made my rebuttal, but I have this feeling it's turning into something ugly, and I don't want that. I just want the right to tell people that I disliked the book without someone jumping all over me. If you don't want someone's opinion, don't ask for it, right?
