Reviewer's Tip - ARGH! Don't Do This!!!

I had a self-publisher query us back in July, looking for a book review.  I had a reviewer interested in the book and replied, asking him to send it along.  The reply went through but when the book never arrived and I tried to send a follow-up email, I noticed that the email was a press release distribution service that he had used.  No surprise, it didn't work the second time around.  At the bottom of his press release, it says "Contact: Author's Name" but there's no email, phone, fax, nada, nope, nothing.  Argh!!!  Guess who could have had a book review but blew it???  Don't do this!  Be sure you include contact info.
