I know a lot of new indie authors need review and exposure. So if you write street lit or drama then go to my website at Scandalous Secrets.blogspot.com
I post reviews on my website, Amazon and Goodread
What do you mean by 'readers with Kindles'? Are they different than regular readers?
p.s. Don't leave!! Remember when you told me not to forget to thank them for their time? I still do that to this day everytime I have to contact them... works like a... works like a... like a... like something that works really good. ; )
I think readers with Kindles are even more dedicated to reading. I mean, if you purchase a device for the sole purpose of reading, you must be into it. I am just seeing too many scammers around here lately and it's disturbing.
Works like a charm? LOL Glad I could help in some small way.
I think the whole review system is being scammed. Friends, paid reviewers, nobody wants to give a one starr review, some reviews have been written before the book goes on sale. If someone gets a one star review then its Boohoo, crybabys. The only way a review system works is for everyone to state their opion on every book they download. If it's so bad they can't finish it, say so. If you read the reviews, most of them are canned reviews.
Some small way?! You are single-handedly responsible for making Kenny Dill so hard to kill. Before every post, I've asked myself, "WWVD?" Sure, I don't always follow that advice, but at the very least it has been considered. ; )
p.s. I think I have eight devices with the ability to read Kindle content... and they all synch up... so I can just hop from one to the other... which is so amazing. Sometimes, I want my Kindle to read to me, so I pick up my 3rd generation Kindle. Sometimes, I want to talk to my Kindle to leave notes and comments and such, so then I use my phone. Sometimes I want to see color pictures big, but not too big, so I use my Fire. It's like friggin goldilocks over here. They all are 'just right' for something.
And why is the review system being scammed?
Because only about 0.1% of downloaders bother to post a review!
So what else do you expect?
If downloaders exerted themselves to post honest reviews there wouldn't be a problem.
But they won't, with the inevitable result...
Because if not, I hate to think what other underhand behavior you rationalize with the type of logic you're using to justify scam reviewing.
Last I checked, buying a book was a simple transaction in which the reader pays for the pleasure (or otherwise) of enjoying your work. That's the end of the transaction. Nobody, not the best writer in the world, is entitled to a review or has any right to expect one.
Agreed - I'm guilty of reading books and never leaving reviews, as I'm sure we all are (although I have become more conscious of it over the past decade since I started writing myself). So therefore, we can hardly slate our own readers for doing the same thing. Lack of reviews from customers doesn't mean that scamming has to come into play - there is always the old fashioned method of sending your work to bloggers and reviewers (not the paid ones). It is hard work and it can take a lot of time, as many have long TBR lists. But it is also a great way of getting honest, trustworthy reviews.
