Negative Reviews

In light of some recent posts I've read where the author was very upset about getting a negative review from a book bloggers, I wanted to make something very clear:

I love getting books from publishers to review. I love being exposed to books I may not have otherwise picked up. Please send me an email, or leave me a message, and, most likely, I will be happy to read and review your book. However, I make no promises that I will like the book or write a positive review. I will be fair, and I try to think of who else may like a book, even if I did not. But I won't act like I liked something when I didn't.

That's all.

  1. Yes, it is all an interesting discussion. as I wrote in a discussion on my blog about a related issue, I fear that part of the problem arises with blogger getting a little to 'close' to publishers and author and really becoming in the publishers and authors eye an extension of their publicity machine.

    With self published authors it is another problem perhaps.
    And then some authors seems just a bit unhinged....
