I write about books I find interesting.
Sometimes those are books that I have bought myself.
Occasionally I am offered a complimentary “review copy” of a book from a publisher or author. If I am reviewing a book I was given for that purpose, I will say so in the opening paragraph.
In any case, I don’t “get anything” other than the book no matter what I write. I do include a link to Amazon with my affiliate code embedded. If you click on the link and end up buying something on Amazon, I get a (very) small payment from Amazon, but that does not affect your transaction with them.
If you are an author or publisher, and want me to review or otherwise comment on a book, feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to let you know if I am interested with the following caveats:
- I tend to be pretty busy, and don’t always find time to read a book thoroughly right away.
- I don’t promise to write a review. If I don’t, you would probably rather I didn’t. From my standpoint, negative reviews are much harder to write, and not worth the emotional angst.
- The above notwithstanding, if I do write a review, I will write what I think, good or bad, so no promises for a positive endorsement.
