#Shoutouts


The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that we've nicked an idea from many other twitterers and starting doing shout outs to other authors among our following. We decided that we wanted to highlight some of the amazing indie talent that might not have been seen by our followers yet.

We're going to limit ourselves to a maximum of two a day - one in the morning, and one in the evening as otherwise it would simply become intrusive.

I'd like to make it very clear we have no financial interest in these tweets - we will never consider paid tweets or promotions. The books / authors we mention are those we have firsthand knowledge of, having read their work or at the bare minimum a sample. It's our reputation on the line if we make a recommendation after all, as if it's not as good as we say then we'll lose followers & fans.

So, with that in mind our criteria for a shout out can be summarised as follows:

1. Max 2 per day.

2. Indie authors only.

3. We will have read their work.

4. We will only recommend work with at least a 4 star average on Amazon.

5. All tweets are our personal unbiased opinion.

6. We may eventually set up an Amazon affiliate account to get 5% commission. If we do we'll make that clear.



I know we probably seem overly harsh, but we want to be absolutely transparent - It's the same for us with reviews which we mentioned earlier. We don't mind giving reviews, but we don't swap reviews (otherwise both parties have a vested interest). We also will be brutally honest either way.



If you want a shoutout then either comment here, or direct message us @90daysnovel and we'll read a sample before we consider a mention.
