Katherine Stone Opens Review Site Run by Authors
On Running with Quills, Katherine Stone announced a new website to be launched November 1, 2007, called WritersareReaders.com (website currently not operational). The website will feature reviews written by authors. While Stone says that while negative reviews are acceptable, the only reviews she has received are the ones beloved by authors. While it would be fun to see what is on the keeper shelf of a favorite author, I wonder how much credibility will be retained if all the reviews are positive?
Plus, I read that contributor Jayne Ann Krentz would never appear on a site that gave negative reviews.
