Thank you all for your input!
It looks like this is going to be a good idea after all,–I’ll send out notices to some of the other mailing lists, and blogs, etc.
If you’re all the places I am, chances are there will be duplication, so I apologize in advance in you keep hearing about this blog and think “Enough already!!”
Book Review Page
I’ve started a static page on the blog for books that anyone can review. Click the appropriate link on the right under “Pages.”
If there is a book you have already reviewed, feel free to send in the link and I’ll add it to the list of links to help guide others who want to write reviews. If you are free to republish the review, it can certainly be published here.
If you have a review/comp copy, please let me know and I’ll try to matchmake a reviewer! If I cant get someone to write a few hundred words, I’ll review it myself.
As for copyrights, the only thing you agree is that “A Mediator’s Dilemma” has a non-exclusive, on-going right to publish or excerpt anything submitted.
There are no plans to “monetize” this blog other than through Amazon, so please accept gratitude of the community as compensation. I don’t expect even the Amazon lins to add up to much, if anything. The links are equally a way of providing more reviewer comments for reference.
Word count: well, that’s up to you. This blog entry has an approximate word count of 303. This sample article from Mediate.com has a word count of 1,636, and this one from Community Mediation Center has a word count of 200.
