Is there a difference between
being approached on social media with the request to review your book – but only if you pay up
approaching blogs and offering money for a review?
I am asking because I am willing to pay for the service of getting my books reviewed, but I choose who I am asking for help and how much I am going to pay.
On the other hand, I hate being approached on social media (unasked), being asked if they can review my books (which I am requested to give them for free, of course) and then being asked to pay.
I mean, I know, it could be exposure and as an independent creator, I should not pass on such opportunities, but for the life of me, I really don’t like the audacity of such accounts.
