Tuesday Talks #1


Hey ya'll. So I am doing my Tuesday Talks on here since for some reason I forgot what day it was. So yeah next week I will definitely be doing a video because hopefully I know what day of the week it is. Anyway this was created by Janie at Bookworms Buddy and Janelle at MrsJRodsReads. I will link the Good-reads group below.

This weeks topic is Should Authors Provide There Books For Review?

My answer to this question is very simple. I do think that in order for me to review the book the author should provide the book. I think for Indie authors this is especially important. If no one has ever heard of you or your book then you obviously want people to read it. So for me if you are making me purchase your book I will be less inclined to review it. I honestly do not think its right for an author to expect you to review a book for them and make you pay for it. To me it is common courtesy if you contact me about reviewing a book please provide a copy. I'm not saying the author has to send a physical copy because I would take a PDF or whatever version. All i'm trying to say is if you are wanting a reviewer to take time out of there days to read your book don't be rude and make them pay for it. 
*This is just my opinion, everyone is entitled to them :)*

  1. I certainly agree that the author should provide the book when they ask for a reader to review it. I don't know too many people that would go out and buy the book so they can review it for an author that approached them.

  2. I Maureen! I completely agree. If an author is asking me to provide a review they should provide me a copy. I agree that an e copy is perfectly acceptable! Great discussion!

    1. Yes! I find it weird that some want you to pay. So weird.

  3. I completely agree! I've never heard of an author asking a reviewer to pay for a book, that just seems weird. Great discussion!
