Honestly, it does not feel good when you have to write a bad review. I know I don’t even know the person on the other side, the author, but I plan to try to give opportunities to fellow Mexican indie authors, as I’ve already said.
Some people cannot take critiques, and I don’t want to be that kind of person that somehow destroyed the motivation they had to write stories. There’s a book I was reading, I scheduled the review for the next few weeks, and it was a bad debut. The worst (better) part is that the book reminds me of my first self-published book. It was f’ing bad, honestly, and since I’m going to do honest reviews, the least I could do is talk about that bad book I wrote and perhaps give an advice or two from it. I even want to show you and translate that one-star review, a very deserved one-star review.
I need to tell new authors that, even when you have the tools to make your work available to the world easy, it’s better to pretend and work as professional as possible, never using the “I’m indie, understand me” flag.
