The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–July 22nd Edition

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

The blogosphere blew up again last week with blogger/author drama, drama, drama. I will only mention one of the dustups, and only because it made me rethink my review policy.  An indie author, posing on Goodreads, threatened to “out” a bunch of bloggers who had “stolen” from him because they did not review the ebook he sent to them.  The post quickly devolved into nonsensical babble, and I only mention it because the recent unfortunate events have made me rethink my own review policy.   I no longer think it’s worth the hassle dealing with indie authors, so I will no longer consider their works for review.  Interviews with indie authors will be granted on a very limited basis as well.  My review policy had been updated to reflect these changes.  I refuse to link to the drama, but if you are interested, just use your Google-fu to research all of the badness that when down last week.

In happier book news, Entangled Publishing launched two new lines – Covet and Brazen.  I have enjoyed several of their books, so I’m curious to check out the new lines.  You can learn more about the new Covet books here and here.  Info on the Brazen books can be found here and here.   Have you read any Entangled books yet?  Are you excited to read any of the titles from their new lines?  I am still eagerly awaiting their Bliss imprint.

    Pushing the Limits was excellent. You should read that one ASAP. It’s one of my favorite books of this year. Great Haul.

    Wow what a good week for you! I feel bad about all the drama..but hate to see all indie authors hurt because of one. The same goes for bloggers..i do not want all of us hurt by the actions of one. Securing up your review policy is a good idea. I saw one today that went so far as to say accepting an arc does not guarantee a review. Have a great book filled week and thanks for being a part of The Sunday Post

    @Kimba – Not guaranteeing a review has always been part of my review policy. I just made sure to emphasize it after all of the garbage that’s been going on. I also will be much more selective when I am approached by indie author for review, unfortunately.

    @Grace – Thanks! I moved Pushing the Limits up in the stack :)

    @Jenea – I hope I can get to The White Glove War next weekend. I can hardly wait to start reading it!

    @Luna – Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!
