What is an audio critique?
It’s a more in-depth version of the written review. I’ll talk more specifically about plot, characters, what I liked, what I didn’t like. It will also contain spoilers, which I will warn of beforehand.
They will differ from my written reviews by being more informal. I’ll crack jokes, make ungoldly comparisons, and generally exaggerate my natural sarcasm.
What books will qualify for an audio critique?
Books with four or five stars.
Why would I want to agree to this?
Agreeing to be considered for an audio critique could potentially increase the speed at which your review gets done. While the audio review will currently be released once a month, I post at least one written review almost every single day. This will also allow you the opportunity to opt-out of having the audio review done, after reading the written review. All you have to do is shoot me a reply e-mail.
They also have the potential to reach a broader audience.
Why am I doing these?
The reasoning behind this is two-fold.
To provide a more detailed analysis of the novel. The freedom to cram more information into a review. A review that’s more on the fun side.
As a Patreon reward.
Who gets to see these?
Everyone. That’s the reason for the four/five star rating requirement. Four and five stars are generally more positive reviews, thusly reducing the chance that an unwanted review is made public.
They will serve as an early access reward for the Patreon tiers. YouTube will have them a few days later, with links to all social media.
