Why I Stopped Writing Book Reviews for Publishers Weekly

bookreviewerFirst off, let me be perfectly clear. I loved freelancing for Publishers Weekly. Throughout the time that I worked for them, I received quality advance reading copies from some of the most successful authors on the planet. I loved reading these books and deciding what I would include in my review and then seeing it published on the Publishers Weekly website and Amazon and on the back covers of books. It was all good for a while, then I just became burnt out. I was reading sometimes as many as two books a week and I found I had no time for anything else such as reading my library books or more importantly working on my own writing projects. Something had to give so I stopped, maybe temporarily, maybe permanently. In the end, I will always have fond memories of my time as a freelancer with them.
