QUALITY, CLARITY, ORIGINALITY, EPIPHANY
Only review books you recommend.
- While balance is good in a review, the ones for Writer Advice should be at least 80% positive.
- Honor the thought, effort, and creativity of authors.
- Write about what makes the book appealing, different, unique, and worth the time it takes to read it.
- Use plot points to illustrate what you say, but do not summarize the plot.
- Reviews should run only 200-300 words since it is 25% harder to read online.
