Today I'd like to share a couple of 1-star reviews I received yesterday: one for Gabriel's Mate and one for Venice Vampyr. I just wanted to drive my point home again: my novels are not for the faint of heart - and the warnings on the books' descriptions say as much! Yet, people who clearly can't take the graphic nature of my sex scenes keep on buying them. Is it so that they can complain about them later?
So here are the reviews. Both are from the same reader who clearly took issue with the sexual nature of my books.
Review for Gabriel's Mate (verbatim - so don't blame me for the typos):
This novel was absoluetly horrible. Its explict scenes were over bearing and sick! I was expecting a romance novel not some tripple X book! And the worse part is that I was dumb enough to buy 2 books by Tina Folsom. How could this woman come up with something as disgusting as this! All I am is saying to eager readers looking for a good romance novel, bypass this book and this author as a whole. This is a disgrace to literature. Actually this is not even literature at all.
Review for Venice Vampyr (word for word):
This book was sick and a disgrace it is completly disgusting and perverse! Who would write thia sort of thing? Absoluetly reckless! Poor decision to write this on Tina Folsoms part. She should be ashamed.
And yes, I should be ashamed of myself - right after I stop laughing. Because by calling my books triple X, this reader is only driving up my sales. And no, I'm not looking to win a Pulitzer prize - I write to entertain people.
For all of you who do enjoy a steamy read, you know where to buy my books: Barnes & Noble and Amazon
