The question that drives this post is:
Where should we send review copies of our book?
There are two criteria:
1) The reviewer needs to already have an audience. A blog or email list with, say, 1000+ readers would count, as would regular book review columns, local newspapers, etc.
2) There should be a reasonable chance that they would actually review the book. Even better if they might like it. For example, they have reviewed other books, host natural building workshops or sell books, or might have an existing bias toward rocket mass heaters.
If you read book reviews on alternative living, how-to, appropriate tech, survivalist tools, or sustainability, please let us know some of your favorite book reviewers!
If you have an audience of over 1000 people, who might enjoy hearing your opinion of the Rocket Mass Heater Builder's Guide, would you like an early copy of the book sent right to you?
Oh, and we'd need a mailing address. I think our publisher (New Society) would be especially happy to get copies of the review, if/when it comes out.
Who knew it could be this easy to get an early copy?
