A Reminder of Kindness & Revenge Reviews #writerslife

I don’t often go on Amazon to check my book reviews, in fact it’s very rare that I do. Today, though, I had some time and decided to give them a look. That’s when I discovered that a cousin of mine had her husband post a 1 star review of my memoir after she found out my grandmother left her out of her will, but not me. I’m now in the process of having the review removed, but it’s been there since July of last year. Shortly after my grandmother passed on and the will was released. Sadly, this is just one example of the retaliation my sister and I have received from angry relatives. I have never once spoken an unkind word to my cousin, and I have never met her husband.

If nothing else, this is a reminder to look inside ourselves to discover the source of our pain instead of inflicting it upon others.

I wonder if any writers out there have similar stories?

  1. Looking inside ourselves to discover the source of our pain instead of inflicting it upon others is how we learn and grow. Too bad your relative didn’t do this. Your grandmother had her reasons for not including her. I hope you can get the biased review removed. Take care!
