Review Policy Update - Again!
This time I hope it's crystal clear and not open to interpretation; every time I think I have got it right,easy to understand, someone else comes long and says,"Oh, but I thought you meant..." This morning's review request wanted me to review the ebook version and then pay for the print version on Amazon if I wanted it for my library.( pounds head in hands). I may,some time, review a book in my collection, or support a fellow writer whose publisher won't send books overseas, but when that happens I will say so. And it will be my decision, not a favour to a publisher I don't know who wants me to pay for the privilege of publicising their books. Again I say: if I can't donate my review copy to my library after I've finished with it, please, please don't ask me. I do hate disappointing people. There are plenty of blogs out there only too happy to review ebooks, but I'm not one of them. Read my lips- I don't review ebooks - sorry!
