- When you are reviewing someone's books or story. NEVER judge them or tell them straight out that it is bad. Rather ASK Them. Why did you choose to do that with your story? Why did you kill this person off, ect.
- Be KIND, Don't try to out wit or belittle that author in any way. They will be mad and in turn ruin you and your reviews. After all you were hired by THEM and the publisher to do the review. So some respect.
- This is gonna come out kind of weird but the book and the characters in it are like the authors children you insult them in any way and you are crusin' for a brusin' I mean how would you feel if they told you your house was too small or your dog is ill trained or your kids are ugly? Think before you say anything.
"Thank you for your honesty. Here are some other books for you to try out."
Always do your best to be honest. AS a reviewer you should research the subject that way you can point out the flaws in the story.For now that's all.
