Tempted to invite me to review your book?
I receive a good number of ‘pitch’ letters sent via the contact page on this website. Let me point out to all authors, their agents, and publishers, eager to do the same for their books that I’ve signed the True Review Pledge. That means I write honest reviews. My policy in the past was simply not to review books that didn’t impress me to a certain level. As an author, I fully understand how hurtful a bad review can be for a book into which the writer has poured heart and soul, not to mention many hours of hard work. However, since joining the Book Blogger List, becoming one of the top 1% of Goodreads reviewers, and taking the pledge, I’ve received many more requests for reviews. I now feel duty bound to produce a review for every book I read, regardless of how good or poor the book may be. I hope authors understand I’m motivated by concern for readers and no other reason.
