Monday Musings: You Can Get Your Book Reviewed Faster! a.k.a. Here’s How!

It’s pretty obvious what this is going to be about.  But we’re going to do it with vocals today!  This is a serious issue so hearing it straight from the messenger’s mouth.  Here we go!


  1. As a fellow writer (and at the moment, not very successful, though in my defense, my first book’s been out a week), what bothers me most is how people assume that someone in a certain profession (say published author) is automatically wealthy (which as you can attest, is not the case). This is obviously due to what the media feeds them, so perhaps they shouldn’t be blamed for it, but it’s annoying just the same. I’m currently finishing law school, which put me over 100k in debt. People assume lawyers are wealthy as well, and I’ve had friends joke about borrowing money from me, despite the job market being pretty difficult in the legal profession right now, and at the moment I don’t have a job or one lined up after I graduate. In every profession, there are more unsuccessful people than not, but the average person doesn’t seem to realize this.

    Also, I commend you for being honest about how you review and things that influence you. Few people would admit to it, despite how seemingly obvious and human such influences are.
