I wonder sometimes why some authors feel the need to lie when they're seeking reviews. Today I received a request to review a fantasy book on my blog The Drowning Machine. The author claimed to be a dedicated reader of the blog, which seems quite odd since there's been nothing posted since 2014 at The Drowning Machine and they only reviewed crime/mystery fiction.
You authors out there would be better served to actually read a blog that you're sending a request to and see what type of books they review. And getting the blog name right would be a step in the right direction of getting a blogger's attention.
