In joining this review group you have agreed to review the books assigned to you on a two month schedule. This group is now in the review phase and is no longer open for sign up.

This is Animal Review Group 1. (All works must be about animals or have an animal as a central character.) As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. Due to changes in how Amazon enforces its policies, it may not be possible to post reviews on Amazon. We encourage participants to post reviews on Amazon, if and where possible. Authors are welcome to request that reviewers post reviews to other venues, as well. Reviewers are welcome to offer to post reviews to other venues, if the subject book is available there.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work or, if the reviewer prefers to give the author a sale, purchase it.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews. Authors may respond to reviews, but any form of harassment or anger directed at reviewers will be treated as a violation of the terms of service for this group.

If you are going to be late with your review, either post to this topic as soon as possible or message the author and the moderator.

If your book has not been reviewed by the deadline for either round, contact the review group moderator. This is necessary to make certain that the review process is fair for everyone.

Note that any participant who makes no effort to fulfill his or her commitment to this group will have all reviews of his or her work resulting from this group deleted and his or her membership in the Genre Specific Review Group will be terminated.

Please read and adhere to the Code of Conduct at https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments No problems. But I have a concern - I know nothing about dogs or fostering them. I don't know if I'm the best person to review that book!

Do the best you can. I have reviewed a lot of books in these groups that were far from my area of expertise and not books I would have chosen to read. In most cases, I learned something from them.

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments Great. No problem. Thanks

Hi Tamira,

I'm reviewing your book, but I'm unable to message you here. Please send me a message and I'll send you the email to send your book to.

Thanks,

Sonal

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments Hi Tamira
I have your book in the first round. Same problem as Sonal (above ). Please advise how to get your book?

Tamira Thayne (tamirathayne) | 24 comments Hi, Sonal and Nadishka,

The book is available in kindle unlimited, but I'll message you both to see if you need it another way. Thanks! Tamira

Thank you, Laura!!

I do want to flag that Amazon appears to be policing reviews. I'm still showing only 12 reviews for Raccoon Rescue, and that's after clearing my cache. Want to guess which 12? Yep, the original ones. Sonal's and Laura's reviews are missing -- which is really weird because I know Laura's is a verified purchase!


message 42: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments That is stragen. I will post it again.


message 43: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments I even got an email from amazon about notifying me of the review.


message 44: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments But I just posted it again.


message 45: by Christa (new)

Christa Laura wrote: "But I just posted it again."

I still don't see it. :( I cleared my cache and everything. BTW -- I saw Sonal's when it first posted, but it went away. Laura, did you get an email from Amazon when you posted this second time?


message 46: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments I got another confirmation email from US amazon. I had posted it on both zons and have not checked the UK one. But it ought to be up on US for sure because they confimred it!


message 47: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments Okay I reread the confirmation email and I followed the ink to the review and it is on UK even though I posted it on US. Thats weird!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R40J8...

It seems to be sending my US review on to UK but not posting it on US I cant imagine why.


message 48: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments Amazon US is claiming tat I have a bias because of a relationship with you. What relation ship? They are not making it easy to contact them either.

My guess? Amazon owns Goodreads and its algorithms have flagged that we've been in communication on this group.
