How far in advance do you write up your reviews? Do you write up the review as soon as you finish the book and then post it the next day? Or do you post it when it fits in best? Do you hold off on posting when it's months until the books actual release?
I do my reviews after reading the book while it is still fresh in my mind. It is too easy to forget everything I liked or the things I didn't like after some time has passed since I read so much. I haven't done any reviews that people have asked me to do, so I don't have an answer on the actual release part. But if I were, I would wait until the month of release. Out of sight, out of mind, so it would be better to do the review right away and then schedule the post closer to the release date.
What do you do when you read a book by an author you normally love or an author you communicate with on a regular basis and you hate the book? Not just dislike, but actually want to give it a horrible review?
Well, I would love to converse with some authors, but I don't have any that I regularly talk to, since most are pretty busy. But I think honesty is important. Not only for the author but for readers. I have quite a few friends who have the same tastes I do. If I didn't like something particular it can let them know if that would be something that would make the book worth while anyway or not. I don't want to tell people 'Oh, this book is horrible, don't read it!' since we all have different tastes, but it gives people more of an idea if the book would really be something that they would want to read.
