I'll probably regret doing this...
But I'm going to be politically incorrect and even risk raising the ire of people, but some inhabitants of the romance reading community are - well for lack of a better word - idiots who post stuff that makes them sound ridiculous.
I was reading some posts at a sight I visit, and a few of them, based on nothing more than a small excerpt on authors website, are almost trashing the author saying stuff like, 'I know I'll end up reading it but I won't be first in line to purchase it either at the bookstores or on my Kindle . . . might just wait and pick up at the UBS.' Or here is another quote, 'she's my favourite author but i must say, after reading the excerpt im not looking forward to it!' Exclamation point even. And yet another example, 'plus all these rumours about magic and such going ons in the coming series! why doesn't she continue doing what she does best, all this messing about has ruined her for me. Another favourite author bites the dust for me *sigh*'
To which I say - GIVE ME A BREAK.
This is a book that won't be out until 2012 and here are readers talking smack already. Come on people - you are being idiots. If your comments were based on a review then you might have some merit to complain or criticize, but you don't have a leg to stand on when you base your comments on such shaky reasoning. And you know what happens to people who do that? They fall on their faces and look silly.
And that's me being bitchy.
