on The Book Designer:
I recently saw a tweet that made me stop in my tracks. It was from a very popular blogger with a huge following. She said that her main wish was that “authors would stop acting like they ‘deserve’ a review from a blogger.”
A number of other bloggers joined in the conversation online to weigh in.
It was fascinating.
Bloggers everywhere rose up to say that they read for pleasure and that they review to be of service to readers. They do not do it to be of service to authors or to be a free marketing arm for a publisher.
This was the inspiration I needed with this month’s edition of DO THIS NOT THAT.
