This is a quick post to ask for some help particularly from anyone who reviews books. I want to create another post about the aftermath of what happened when my previous blog post ‘Respect the Reviewer 2’ was shared but I won’t go into details of what happened right now. However I DO want your help and your opinion on these things so I can help write a better post using more than just my own opinion. So here are the points and I welcome any viewpoint. I’m open to comments from everyone but I’m especially keen to hear from book reviewers.
- Should book reviewers pay a contribution towards the cost of a book? Even a small one such $0.99 or £0.99?
- Should authors hand over a copy of their book months ahead of review or only when a reviewer is ready to read it (bearing in mind the reviewer will have to contact the author again to get the book copy at that time).
- Who are the most important people in the entire book industry. Who makes the industry, one group or many? The authors, publishers, readers, reviewers, etc
As strange as these questions sound it will become clear when I explain what happened in my next ‘Respect the Reviewer’ post. In the meantime please give me your input I would very much like your opinions and if you haven’t read it already and would like to comment on the last post I did here is the link: Respect the Reviewer 2
