Review 101

Here is where I gather all of the posts in the 7 part series On Reviews, a helping guide to things you should be aware of when writing book reviews.  In addition, several authors have provided insight and perspective on reviews – from how reviews can help or hurt an author, to what is important in the writing process as well as how authors seek out reviewers.   Please enjoy!
