Hello Wordypress type people!
This Post is more a question to the Authors out there and asking for an opinion. (Which I may or may not go along with.)
I read, a lot. I just rated and reviewed 10 books on my kindle because I got behind on the review writing. Now, with Amazon being a giant stick in the mud (about authors so-called “knowing each other personally through social media” usually complete BS ) and Facebook being a putz about using your “real name” on your account. (UGH!!! Ya’ll why did you go and have to screw up a perfectly nice system?!) I put all my little author friends in one category of friendship so I could send them messages as a group and shield them from my non-pertinent blatherings. Being in that group means only they can see what I post to them and big bruh Amazon can’t (I hope) I tagged the authors I reviewed and then sent them personal messages to let them know I had R&R’d (Rate & Review feel free to use it) their books.
Enough dillying.. time for the question:
Should I post the reviews here too and risk Amazon taking them down? I think reviewing books I enjoyed, would help the author get exposure (of course) but also might alert Amazon to think we know each other. I don’t want to become a book reviewer blog because that’s not my purpose and Amazon is watching them like a hawk and no longer allows the reviews.
