So most everyone has heard about the new rules by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). If not, go read it here
My thoughts? Are you kidding me? Seriously? If someone sends me a copy of their book and I read it & like it and post a review, I need to make a note that I was given a free copy? Are you serious? What kind of nonsense is this? Hasn't the best promotions been word of mouth recommendations? If I read something and like it, blog or post about my thoughts of it, that's my business. That's my first amendment right to state my opinion. Doesn't mean anybody has to agree with me. Doesn't mean anybody has to run out and buy a book because I liked it. Just means that's my opinion. ]
Forgive me, but what's next? We must "disclose" to our family & friends if we receive a free book, love it, and verbally recommend it?
So, what are YOUR thoughts?
