I have the opposite problem. People are saying nothing but good stuff about my book. That doesn't help me!!! I crave constructive feedback that will help me improve.

Xavier: Give copies of your book to people who have no emotional attachment or vested interest in you. I applaud your willingness to step outside your comfort zone.

You're serious about perfecting your craft. That's a sure sign of ongoing growth. Good luck to you!
