Do Reviews Matter?

Allison Winn Scotch, whose book Time of My Life is coming out in October, posts an author's perspective on the tension of waiting for the pre-release reviews to roll in at Writer Unboxed.
...then my mind started churning toward the next reviews:, Kirkus, Booklist, Amazon…the list is never-ending. My google alerts are never-ending. How am I expected to find mental peace when I know that people are out there, judging my work, judging my skill, judging ME for what I put in my book.
I don't have an advance copy of this one so I'll just have to wait my turn! In the meantime, Scotch's article and the resulting discussion about whether reader reviews make a difference in book sales is worth a look.
