Book Review Service




They've been reported to both Amazon and GoodReads, but at this time nothing has been done.  Beware when checking reviews, and watch out for this "reviewer"




Edit: They had also listed GoodReads as a site they post to, and did have a GoodReads account with the reviews posted.  However GoodReads has recently removed them from the site.


In addition to the paid for "consumer" reviews scam, Literary Titan also has Affiliate links placed on their reviews which link to the book on Amazon. This is also is a violation of Amazon TOS, as it's another way for reviews to be paid for.  It's something that got a lot of bloggers purged in the past. 


Still waiting for Amazon to take action...
