There’s a small amount of satisfaction to be gained when someone sends out a request for reviews of their book, and then gets thoroughly bent out of shape when a fairly quick perusal and critique aren’t what they hoped for. The response was pretty typical with all the usual “you don’t know what you’re talking about” variations. And then to find their blog, for which I had to correct the URL they’d posted on their profile, and discover this little gem: “The first book is up and its’ errors are gone…” Priceless.
By now, I should know better than to respond, even privately, as I did this time, to review requests. If someone wants to believe their book is a masterpiece, there’s no way you’re going to convince them that anything at all is wrong with it.
