Don't Offer Review Books In Only One Format

No comments
As we start into award nomination time, I'm getting invitations to read stuff so that I can nominate them.

Which is cool.

But let me make this clear:

The odds of me reading your book as a reviewer (or award nominator) are much higher if it's in a format I typically use.  And I bet others are the same way.

So send that book in PDF and ePub and Kindle formats.  (And make print available if you want;  some folks swing like that.)  PDF only?  I may or may not read it.  If it has DRM on it?  I may or may not read it.

The whole point of sending books to people for consideration for awards - or for review - is to make it easy on them to give your book a chance

Offering only one format or another is making it hard for them... and that's not a good recipie for success.
