I’m not in the habit of commenting on a bad review. Bad reviews can be educational for the writer. However, one reviewer may give a book a bad review, another give it four or five stars. As in one person likes grapefruit and another does not, tastes in reading vary.

Book 1, Eos, of the Samsara Chronicles, got its first review on Amazon. I’m flabbergasted. Though the reviewer is complimentary about the writing and grammar, what he/she has to say about the story is what baffles me. Samsara Chronicles is serialized to make it affordable for Kindle readers. If the stories were compiled into two books, both books would be huge. The first story is almost 13,000 words. Small novella. The other stories are between 16000 and 22000 words, the last book is at 32000 words. The reviewer complains about the price. At eXtasy and Devine Destinies, all books between 16000 and 22000 words are priced at 3.99, but because this series is going up all at once, 11 out of the 14 stories will be priced at 2.99. I don’t think pricing them at 2.99 was that bad. The last one is 3.99. Had we published one every month, would the reviewer still have complained?

Okay, next–did the reviewer actually read book 1, absorb the paranormal aspects of it? Or did he/she merely skim over it. Reviewer says there are A FEW DOZEN SEX SCENES in it and ends in the woman having a baby. YIKES! I actually pulled up the story to check. There are TWO sex scenes, not overly explicit. There are a couple of lines that HINT at a third one later on, but only a hint. Where does the reviewer find a few dozen sex scenes? That many wouldn’t even fit into a 13000 word story.  The reviewer says there is no story. Mm, if you read it well, and again absorb what the author has written, you’ll see why the first story was necessary due to plot points in the continuing segments.

The reviewer apparently downloaded Nadir, book 2, but only read a little of it. SURPRISE… there is NO SEX in book 2. Had he/she read all of book 2, he/she would have seen the connection to the first story. Nadir is about 22,000 words, novella size.Certain elements that occur in Eos, make appearances throughout the series.
