You go to a supermarket and you get loyalty points because they want to keep your custom.
You use a credit card and you get cash back or air miles because they want to keep your custom.
You use a catalogue and they offer you a discount to use them again because they want to keep your custom.
You get emails in your inbox about companies offering vouchers to use them because they want to keep your custom.
But if an author offered an incentive for a review of the kind:
leave a totally honest review and get another of my books free, or get a voucher or something or a reward of some kind
then would it be totally frowned upon as a heinous act of a ruthless mind hell-bent on corrupting the non-existing free market forces that are Amazon and book forums around the world?
I just wondered what people on here think about it.
