Reviews: Good News vs Bad News Part Two

by Lillian Csernica on January 31, 2016


I’m still mulling over the pros and cons of writing reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, et al.  While I was wandering around the Web today, I came across a blog that talks about how to get our books reviewed.  There’s a lot of info here, and much food for thought.

How to Get Reviews for Your Book (Without Begging, Bribing, or Subterfuge)

I’m leaning toward not reviewing that book I mentioned in Part One.  Given that there’s close to a dozen more books in the series, it’s not like my opinion is going to make much of a difference.  I came across the first book on BookBub, where it’s offered for free as an enticement.   If I did comment on the novel’s extensive flaws, maybe I would be doing some readers some good.

Yes?  No?  Give it up and go write my own stuff?

As always, I welcome your thoughts.


EDIT: I did write the review after all.  Thank you to everyone who has been contributing to the discussion.
