When you ask “friends” to write reviews about your book(s) . . . isn’t it disingenuous? Correct us if we are wrong but hasn’t Ann “A.C.” Crispin & Writer Beware frowned on this kind of activity? This is the epitome of the kind of book marketing strategies that have been utilized by Ann “A.C.” Crispin and her colleagues . . . i.e., appeal to their minions (i.e. the Kool-Aid drinking “flying monkeys”) as a show of support for their “non-profit” watch-dog activities . . . . How pathetic can Ann “A.C.” Crispin be? If her books were selling then the general public would be posting “genuine” reviews of her books . . . not fabricated reviews generated from “flying monkeys” at the behest of an author (Ann “A.C.” Crspin) begging for book reviews. Authors don’t beg for reviews . . . if the work is good the general book buying public will evaluate it on its own merits.
