Nothing to Giggle About

Wow, I can't believe how the argument with Mrs. Giggles blew up over the past few days. I mean, on the plus side, it probably drove a heap of extra traffic to both her site and to RD, but wow!

I surely hope she didn't think I hated her review. I fully admit I sent her Brides Maid in Heaven, and yeah, I expected her to tear me a new one, but I considered it a rite of passage--so to speak. I mean, so many people tell you how good you are, but they love you. Mrs. Giggles is a snarky reviewer who owes you nothing and remains annonymous, and that means she will tell you what she really thinks, uncut. There's value in that.

Also, she'll take on newbies and seasoned alike, and basically gives you free promo. Gotta love that. I HATE that this rift has occured. It makes me feel really uncomfortable about sending her more stuff, and I'd sorely miss her. I actually enjoy the snark, in fact, I've been known to snark myself on occasion. I sure hope I haven't contributed in any way --paranoia setting in. I may giggle over the results I got back, but I sure do appreciate them. And her. Let's hope it's a storm in a teacup, quickly over.

I don't see why you can't still send her stuff - it's what she does afterall.

Hopefully, it'll die down soon. I think her biggest issue was with authors who pull a fake "How did she get my book?" on her. Of course, she does buy books on her own, too, but I still don't see the problem in having her review something.

I think you're fine.

I didn't even know there was riff going on. But don't feel bad about it, Babe. It wasn't your fault, so stop blaming yourself, ok?

I've never heard of her, but the name makes me giggle. LOL!
