Repeat After Me. Do-Not-Pay-for-Book-Reviews!!!

I would like to contact book review writers about reviewing one or more of my ebook titles. I am willing to pay a fee for honest reviews, positive or negative, that are posted in magazines, blogs, or other places, to call attention to my titles…

Do NOT Pay Someone to Review Your Book!

I’m continuing to do research on publishing companies and associated problems. I came upon the subject of Kirkus Reviews. I didn’t find a reference to them on your website, so I’m asking you about them. Is a Kirkus Review worth anything? From what I understand, the author pays for the review and if he doesn’t like it, the review doesn’t get posted, but he’s still out the money. Even if their review is positive, does it have any value? Thanks for you time.
