You may have noticed that I have been rather absent lately.
I haven't been commenting.
I haven't even been reading your posts.
The worst thing?
I haven't even been reading your reviews for the BBC. This makes me very sad.
This is not a post about feeling guilty about reviewing. I am done with that. I have been reading lots of review books lately. In a machine like fashion if you must know.
This is a post about the BBC. Something I am commited to making a success.
I know many people said they were not fussed about whether there were prize packs for the winners of each month. I want to check that this is still the case.
You see the thing is I am scaling back my acceptance of review books which means that I am not comfortable with publishers providing the prizes. I think they should see some results for their generous contributions. So what I am trying to say is: Are you going to be desperately upset if there are not prize packs?
I would rather choose one of my favourite British Books as a prize each month and send it to the winner. I think this would be more personal and more supportive of the writers that I love because I will be buying the book and hopefully encouraging someone else to read it.
I really need your thoughts on this. BBC is a democracy not a dictatorship.
