Ugggh. I just want this whole thing to be over.
But since posting my rant about being asked to take down a negative review of an indie book, I’ve since been messaged by the author’s friend. She explained that she, personally, believes that reviews shouldn’t be taken down just because they aren’t good. It’s the author that asked her to message me about taking down my review (why the author didn’t message me herself, I have no idea). So I’m just writing this quick post to clarify things and apologize to the author’s friend. I had no idea her views and the author’s views didn’t align when I posted my original rant.
And so, goodnight.
