On our form we asked about your audience and blog numbers. This is where the business end of things comes in, and I know you guys understand that. However, some folks wanted to review but didn't have a blog, or worried that their audience wasn't big enough for us.
Our thoughts are this: writers are writers no matter if they blog or not, or where they spend their time. We don't want to exclude anyone based on numbers or anything else, so we've decided a portion of our review copies will be selected by random drawing. This way, everyone who showed an interest in being a reviewer has a chance to snag a review copy, regardless of blog size or where post your reviews. We'll be contacting those reviewers soon, and our sincere thanks to everyone offering to get involved. :)
