Last night, freakishly, I took the night off from work and lolled about on my velvet sofa reading a novel instead. Bad me. Well at least it was a novel about the publishing world. In it, one of the characters, herself a novelist, says, "Why don't more authors get their friends to post glowing reviews of their books at online bookstores?" Which indeed made me wonder, why not?
These days when I'm considering buying a book at Amazon, the first thing I look for are reviews. If there are none posted, then I scroll up to check the book's publication date - is pre- Amazon old? Is it not out yet? If it's been published in the last few years, without having accrued one single review, well then I assume it must not be any good.
