  1. Excellent post. I’d heard things about Kirkus before and am glad I avoided them.

    I’ve often felt that reviews you have to pay for are questionable. I’d rather give away free copies of the book in exchange for an honest review than spend almost $500.00 on one review. It just doesn’t make sense.

    Thanks for sharing this. A lot of people may be spared some serious heartache and a thinning wallet.

    Excellent piece; thanks for linking to it. There are lots of things I can do with $500.00, but it’s clear that a Kirkus review isn’t worth the expense.
