If you email us and ask us to review your book, we expect your book to be done.
I don’t mean that in some subsequent print run you can’t change a word or correct a typo. But if you send a book asking for a review, and then, because someone else somewhere in the world didn’t like your first chapter and you then write a new first chapter and mail that out so that it can be reviewed instead, you aren’t looking for a review. You’re looking for a critique.
And a critique isn’t the same thing as a review.
Don’t send me your book for review until you’re done. Because I read finished books to review here, and when I’m done and ready to share my thoughts, I post them on Spinetingler, I don’t take them down, and I’m not going to read the 115th draft of your “book” that you subsequently produce.
It’s really just an fyi. If you’re asking anyone at Spinetingler for a review, it should mean the book is done. If it isn’t, you’re asking for feedback or a blurb for a book scheduled to be published. And I don’t do either through Spinetingler.
