Writing Lite Tip 50: Never pay for a review

Writing Lite Tip 50: Never pay for a review. It will come back to bite you.

Enough said? You don’t need to pay for reviews. You can find reviewers online, on Facebook (Check Reviewing groups), Twitter, Google+, and more. Some kind souls have even made lists of reviewers who will review self-published books, but you’ll have to check to see how timely they are.

Make sure you craft a respectful, polite query letter that you send BEFORE you send them your book. After all, you’re asking someone to invest a lot of time in your work. The query doesn’t have to be long, but make sure they know how much you’ll appreciate their effort.
