Happy Halloween everyone! I hope those of you who are dressing up have some incredible costumes planned. I can't wait to see your photos!
This week I'd like to talk about something I come across a lot as a book blogger and as an author: reviewer pressure.
Reviews of indie books: how to get them and how to give them.
I'm an author of four (and a bit) indie novels, as well as a book reviewer of indie books. As a result, I spend a lot of my life riding the interface between authors and reviewers. It isn't always pretty, but it can be wonderful for reviewers and authors when it works well.
This post looks at the process of requesting book reviews from both sides, considering what authors can expect and how to maximise the chances of getting a positive response from (unpaid) reviewers.
