Paid for Reviews - My Confusion Deepens...
Further to my blog post earlier this week in which I posited the question: is it acceptable or not to pay for reviews?
I have just seen a professionally made book trailer that included a quote from which Kirkus which is a paid review site! So is there an unfair hypocrisy at work here, where it is only unacceptable to pay for a review if you are a struggling newbie like me? Or is it just fine and everything I previously believed is wrong? Perhaps it isn't fine at all and people are just 'getting away with it?'
I wish someone in the know would enlighten me, because if I was merely confused before, now I am completely befuddled!
