Giveaways and My First 1-Star Review

When I started this blog I didn't want it to be too self-promoting. Of course, I've ended up posting many Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb (SZJMB) reviews here, especially the 5-star ones. So, I made myself a promise to also post my first 1-star review.

Well, it happened a few days ago on Barnes and Noble, but I think I'm going to chalk it up to a mistake. Why a mistake? See for yourself--here's the entire review:

Zombies asome!#12 Zombies asome! #1!!!

I dont like zombies but that was asome!!!!

Now it's possible that the reader was being sarcastic and really just hated the book. But when you consider the typos and spelling errors, I think a more likely explanation is that they rushed it out (probably on their nook keyboard) and didn't realize they put 1-star--at least that what I keep telling myself. So, there you have it my first 1-star review. Now, I can say I kept my promise.

On to important stuff. First, Congratulations to Chandra H. the winner of the Best of 2011 Blog Hop. She wins her choice of three books and a copy of SZJMB. This was my most successful contest to date with almost 300 total entries (counting extra entries). Thanks to everyone who entered.

If you didn't win, don't worry. Head over to I am a Reader, Not a Writer for a chance to win not only the book, but the last of my totally asome (purposefully misspelled) Zombie Survival kits.

I hope everyone has a great 2012!


  1. I have never given a 1 star review, but I have given 2 star (probably should have been a 1 star, but I was being generous).
    So, lol, grats on your 1 star. It does sound like an error on the part of the poster.

  2. LOL. it looks like a simple typo. If it wasn't and the poster said what they wanted than I wouldn't worry about it either if that is their level of verbal ability.

  3. I'm with the others. I'm sure it's a typo. :)

    Happy New Year! Here's to more great reviews and a 2012 of awesomeness.

  4. Always on the lookout for more zombie books, although I'm starting to have zombie nightmares, which isn't good. I'll have to see if I can find your book to read!
