But, you know, the whole concept of authors reading your reviews ... I had never thought much about that until I created my blog recently and started tweeting my posts. I had been posting reviews to Goodreads for years--and although I suppose I always knew that some authors read their reviews there, it somehow seemed sort of anonymous. When I blog, by contrast, especially when I am reviewing an ARC before it has been released, it seems more immediate. There's an inherent responsibility to write a fair, proper, appropriate, and just all-around polished review, especially if the author may read actually it. And, you know, I don't want the author to think I am a complete doofus. :) I feel more pressure now!
But I'm curious ... What do you think about including the author's twitter handle when you send a review out on twitter? I know some bloggers do this routinely, but others think it's awkward. I'll admit I've done this only after writing a good review of the author's book.
