I got an e-mail today from some outfit called Book Promotions International, telling me that they want to add my book to their recommended buy list in their upcoming newsletter that's going out to 9,000 book bloggers and reviewers. They will also add me to their recommended buy list on Pinterest.

Now considering that I don't have a book and the only thing I've done about possibly publishing a book is to download some materials from free reference sources, they must be really psychic to know that my book, if and when it comes out, will be worth a recommendation.

There's just one catch; I have to pay $19 for the privilege of this recommendation at which time they will have me fill out a form detailing just what my book is about.

Now, obviously there are some authors or would be authors who are so desperate to get any sort of recommendation that they will shell out the $19 (and probably other chunks of money to other similar hucksters), but are there really 9,000 book bloggers and reviewers or even nine book bloggers and reviewers who believe that a "recommendation" from these people is legitimate?

If the book reviewer has their own personal copy of "Who's Who In American High-School Students" they may just go for this too.
