I've been on Goodreads a total of maybe six weeks. In that six weeks I've gravitated towards "friends" who are either reviewers or authors with whom I share the same book interests, or they have the same kind of attitude that I do. The "I seriously don't care what you have to say go suck your thumb" attitude.
However, one thing that Goodreads is awesome for is connecting authors with reviewers. I've looked at SO MANY book blogs by reviewers and been REALLY excited to have that person read and review my book when I get to the part that says:
"I am not accepting books by self published authors."
That's when I get frustrated. Now, I TOTALLY realize that it's up to each individual reviewer to decide what THEY want to accept, and I absolutely respect that.
That doesn't mean I can't cry a little about it.
So this is just me asking if there's a specific reason I see so many reviewers not wanting self published titles?
