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.
