At the last network meeting we had a discussion about the worth of a " Paid Review" . Well , if you do not have an initial review from a friend , or professional, you leave your book open to comments by anyone. Now some people just don't get it, and some are negative or see things half empty instead of half full. While all comments are fair, what is not fair is that if the very first review is by a negative person or by someone who does not "get it" then your whole book and it sales will be blocked by that very first reviewer who has that opportunity to do harm to your book just by being first. Tragically, this once happened to me early on in my career , and that is why I now offer a paid review, fair and professional service. I also combine a book video trailer service with a book review in one package.
