Is it ever justifiable for a writer to pay for a review
In my view writer's that pay for reviews are every bit as bad as a sportsmen who use drugs to enhance their chance of winning, creative writing should never descend to a competitive sport, but with the advent of so many writing sites, it has, and the author who pays for reviews is enhancing his or her chances of success , no different to a cheating sportsman or woman really
I agree with you and I do not think it is ethical or justifiable. Nevertheless, many people choose to do as they please and many do not share this opinion. I certainly would never do that and that's just me, but I don't doubt there are many who do and will continue doing this.
I think no matter what anyone does now , the system is skewed in favour of those with money that it can not be reversed
I think if it was an honest review it probably is fine. Back in the day, I remember some publishing sites paid people to review incoming manuscripts. On the Amazon Kindle site I have seen writers do a review swap where one person will review another person's book an the other person would repeat the favor. if they are honest reviews, I am not sure. As for me, I wouldn't do that because I am too cheap.
