“If you are an author or publisher who believes I’ve quoted too much or otherwise acted in error, politely contact me and let me know which quotes you think better showcase and promote your work.” –Admiral Iron Bombs?
This blogger is keeping a low profile, but I love the blog, and I must appropriate (verb) his/her disclaimer: “As a book reviewer, I find it helpful to quote from an author’s text to give an idea of their prose style, as well as including the book’s cover art, and in some cases examples of interior illustrations. I do this under section 17 U.S.C. § 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976” (the fair use of a copyrighted work for purposes such as criticism, scholarship, or research is not an infringement of copyright).
Oh, and I also review books, solicited or not, but I never make promises, so email me your manuscript if you wish, knowing I may or may not review it.
