Well things were exciting around here yesterday. Amazon changed their review policies so authors can’t give free books in exchange for reviews! Amazon’s NEW Review Guidelines (10/3/16) state:
Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review.
That means authors can still give away free copies in the HOPES of getting reviews, but you can’t give away free copies “in exchange for review.”
You can swing by and peruse our free books any time! If you review a book you received for free, be sure to add: “I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review” to your review – That’s an Amazon and FCC law.
The authors themselves will provide you with the free books, so you get to say hi to them, too!
I have some new releases from my friends for you, too:
Murder at the Clinic – 99c for a limited time!
Kat Denham, a popular author of steamy romance novels, has decided to write a book in a different genre. She has a friend who’s a doctor of acupuncture, has lost over one hundred pounds, is marrying in mid-life for the first time, and seems like the perfect role model for the protagonist in Kat’s soon-to-be-written book. But then fate intervenes when Kat happens to be at the acupuncture clinic when a patient, Sandy Hendrick, mysteriously dies. Suddenly Kat is involved in a murder mystery she has to solve in order to save her reputation and that of her friend, Mitzi.
Who was the murderer? Was it Mitzi, Kat’s acupuncturist? Or was it a doctor from the clinic who desperately wants Mitzi discredited, so he’ll be named the Assistant Dean of Acupuncture? Then there’s Sandy’s philandering husband, Matt, and Mitzi’s fiancée’s ex-girlfriend. Or was it Mitzi’s receptionist, Rochelle? Will the sting Kat devises to help catch the murderer work? And what part does Kat’s guard dog, Rudy, play?
Another fast-paced cozy mystery with plenty of food, dogs, and recipes from seven time Amazon All-Star author, Dianne Harman.
