At least, that's what writer ...

At least, that's what writer Michelle Gorman learned when she wrote the site to request a review of her book, Misfortune Cookie. Gorman was so taken aback by the response letter she received that she posted it on her blog with the question, "Should Bloggers Charge for Reviews?"

...
Though Gorman initially claimed that the girls had no disclosure policy, a disclosure policy did exist, though details were vague, and the steep price was not publicly posted on the site.
Where this issue gets tricky is in the point the authors of ChickLitGirls made in their response to Gorman. TechCrunch noted their savvy reply that Kirkus, the well-respected reviewing outfit, also charges between $400 and $600 for reviews of "indie" (self- or e-pubbed) books on their website. And unlike Kirkus, which takes your money for an opportunity to get reviewed, then consoles you with the fact that if said review is negative, it never has to see the light of day, ChickLitGirls made the unwieldy promise to genuinely like everything they read.
A Google cache of the disclosure notice reads, "Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The idea of selling guaranteed positive book reviews that many other bloggers might well give them for free obviously left a sting in the mouths of the many people who responded to Gorman's post. "How do you hone your craft if always told you're the best? Gorman questioned in comments.
