Free Books For Free Reviews*.
The latest trend among some is to send out free books and CD's so that they get free reviews. It's an interesting concept to me, however I wasn't particularly bothered in joining the race to become one of the chosen 144, 000 ... oops I mean 50 to get that elusive freebie. However it did get me thinking whether it would be worth writing to various authors promising a review if I could get some free books. I wrote to one author and promised nice things on my blog if he would send me some of his books and I was quite amazed with the result (see pix >).
However the famous author attached a caveat to his gift - I have to read them all and review them within the week. What a challenge - otherwise I have to buy them.
