How do you handle reviews that get your book wrong?

Since my memoir was self published in Oct., I've paid for 6 or 7 reviews from popular and well known review sites.

Fortunately, my faith was restored when I received 2 or 3 reviews where I can see the reviewer actually read the whole thing.It was very frustrating, I paid for my book to be read. This latest incident was over the top- the reviewer…See More

Welcome to Book Blogs! (:

We’re Anastasia & Demitra. We’ve been members for a little while now. We noticed you were new, so we decided to drop by and say ‘hi!’ Book Blogs seems complicated, doesn’t it? It’s like that at first, but we promise it won’t be long until you’re chatting up all the members on here (: If there’s anything we can help you with, just let us know. We’d be glad to help.

We also have a fairly-new Young Adult (YA) book blog, and we'd love it if you’d come and check us out at: http://characterized.blogspot.com/

You can also find me on: TwitterFacebookTumblr and Goodreads.

We'd be sure to follow you back as well!

Hi!

Welcome to Book Blogs! I'm Kate, a young adult author. My debut novel Taste has just been released by Crescent Moon Press last April 30, 2012. 


At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

Grab your copy now at:

Amazon
Barnes & Noble

I hope you enjoy your stay here! Lots of great people and interesting topics. If there's anything you might need, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my page.

Sincerely,

Kate
