A multi-authors series I’m following is going through much-needed changes. In regards to the official announcement, I saw a few comments practically slamming ARC reviewers for being honest. The same person also believes reviewers should only be unbiased to a certain degree. As one of those reviewers (and for all other honest reviewers out there), I won’t tolerate this mentality because it’s not helping authors and readers.
Do you know how many times I saw “I don’t trust ARC reviews anymore because they’re not honest” remarks? I know why people think this. I have friends who have been reprimanded for being honest and unbiased. As a blogger, I know very well how some PR companies (and individual authors) control reviews with an iron fist.
