Your article on review copies is right on. I am an author, but have also run a review site (often with up to four reviewers working), and have done so for ten years. We have strict guidelines of what does and doesn’t get reviewed at AUTHOR’S CHOICE REVIEWS.
Always check out the web site. Make sure it is legit, and follow the guidelines for submission.
Too many authors waste my time and theirs on books that do not “fit” our guidelines. I wrote my own article about this: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/908841/how_to_get_a_book_reviewed.html?cat=35
Your article will save authors time, energy and $$, and save reviewers like me from frustration. I certainly do not like to see authors wasting their money.
