Laurie and I, WildAboutBones, wanted to take an opportunity to delve into the murky area of book review ratings. In March we are going to tackle the often controversial 3 Star Rating, what we call One Good Howl.
Thursday, March 29, 2012, will be for book reviewers to discuss in detail and educate our followers, authors and publishers on what a 3 Star rating means to us since so many people seem to react differently to seeing this much maligned rating. It is also an opportunity for our followers to tell us in their comments how they feel about reading, or the possibility of reading, a book we have given a 3 Star rating.
Friday, March 30, 2012, will be a single post containing a paragraph or two from several authors and publishers on their honest thoughts about receiving a 3 Star rating on their work; not what their ego feels but how they take the news of rating and what that rating means to them.
Authors who are interested in expressing their opinions in the March 30th post should email WildAboutBones with the subject of “3 Star Rating Event Author Request” to WildAboutBones [at] gmail [dot] com or here
1. You must have an online review site (blog, Wordpress, LiveJournal, etc.) to enter. Open only to book reviewers with a blog or online book review site.
2. Make sure your book reviewer(s) post goes live on March 29 at 12:01 am EST.
3. Make sure your authors/publishers post goes live on March 30 at 12:01 am EST.
4. Initially each review site will find their own authors to participate but if I have a lot of authors requesting to participate, I'll email those sites who want/need authors with the extras. Let me know if you want/need some more authors for your site but do not rely on this as the only way to find your authors.
5. There is no requirement for any giveaway for this event.
