Book Giveaway WEEK 6!!
Congratulations to Jess! She won a copy of Land of Inheritance. Jess, email me your address and I'll send your book: heather at hbmoore dot com.
Only 3 more weeks to go before the release of my next book, ABINADI--3 more chances to win Land of Inheritance.
All you have to do it answer this weeks question:
What compels you to jump on Amazon an review a book, for better or for worse? And do you read reviews on a book before you make a purchasing decision?
For me, I read a lot of books, but of course there's only so much time I can spend reviewing them--on Amazon or any place else. So probably the main thing that compels me to review a book is if I LOVE it. If I hate it, I don't usually bother, except there have been one or two exceptions. A second reason that will compel me to post a review is if I personally know the author and realize that I can do my part in helping them promote their book. A third reason is if an author specifically asks me to review their book and then sends me a free copy.
I do read reviews quite often. Of course if it's a favorite author, then I probably won't--I'll just go ahead and buy the book.
What about you?
