Trolling for Reviews: The New Thing?
September 26, 2012So this marks the fourth person who has e-mailed me directly asking for a book review because they'd seen one of mine on Amazon or Goodreads.
I don't mind. Not at all. But is this a new "thing" for indie types?
I've got really mixed feelings about it, and I'm not entirely sure why. It seems a little... needy, but at the same time, free books! And all the folks who have asked so far have been clear about "You reviewed a book like X, and my book is similar enough that I think you might like it...", which is good.
Has this happened to anyone else yet? What do you think?
