I now have 4 authors who ask me to read and review their ARC books. One, I recently started reading, having never read any of her previous books. I absolutely hated the book. It wasn’t a genre I usually read, and at about chapter 4, I realized that I wasn’t ever going to finish the book.
Part of what bothered me what that she had sent me a quick excerpt of the book, before it was published, and I emailed her back with a couple of typos to correct. She did not correct them, and published them as is.
I had a hard time with the typos in the book, and I had a few other complaints, but decided to not stress myself out. I have to move on and read things that aren’t going to cause me stress.
My next step is to decide if I am going to email to be taken off the ARC list for her, or just be thrown off for not meeting deadlines. I can pretty much guarantee that I won’t be reading any more of her work.
