About Book Reviews

Reviews are important to authors and books. For one, it provides us with feedback on our work, and two, it provides other readers with information they need when deciding to pick up a book or not.

Two, in an automated world, the content that we see delivered to us is driven by mathematics. Amazon is the biggest bookseller on the planet, with nine international domains in addition to its US site. They manage their ranking/review system with a complex algorithm. Star rankings, text reviews, and the raw numbers of feedback left by customers are all variables weighed by the calculation. The more data it has, the more it knows about a product.

It. Yes, we are talking about technology. It doesn’t feel one way or another about the data given to it, just how much it has and what the data says. Like a book, tell Amazon. Don’t like a book, tell Amazon, and its algorithm will do the rest. Be honest and be respectful, and you have done the author and other readers a favor even if your review is negative.

About the Giveaway

I love readers. I love giving things away. And readers of young adult books appear to be quite enamored with “The Infernal Devices.” To encourage readers to pick up January Black and help me reach my goal of 100 Amazon reviews, I’m offering a hardcover set of “The Infernal Devices,” signed by Cassandra Clare. The giveaway will begin when the 100th review is posted.

Read. Review. Share. Win The Infernal Devices. Hardcover. Signed.

This giveaway will be open to international readers. “The Infernal Devices” prize was purchased by me. Cassandra Clare is not connected to this promotion in any way. Review will NOT be required to participate, BUT we need 100 to get a party started.

This post will be updated as needed prior to the event.

  13. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will
    be much more useful than ever before.
