For Book Bloggers and Others interested:
Authors Helping Authors: Authors Beware of unprofessional Reviewers. This post link has definitely been flying around the web alot. As a book blogger, I believe that readers and followers deserve an honest review stating what they like and what didn't work for them. That doesn't mean that you should trash a book or put a reader off picking up a book because a blogger doesn't like it. It just means that the book wasn't for them. I also don't believe it is in an Authors best interest to target certain book blogs and call them unprofessional. Word of Mouth travels far, especially on the internet, and posts like these can damage an Authors reputation. How readers perceive an Author, plays just as big a part in buying a book, as the book itself. This is just my opinion. Please feel free to check this out and comment back on this post about what you think!
