Honest Broker Disclaimer

(IAW FTC File No.  P034520): I accept cash-paid advertising.  To the best of my knowledge, as of the date of this posting (February 3, 2014), none of the advertisers that sell products mentioned on this blog have solicited me or paid me to write any reviews or endorsements.   I do occasionally receive free sample products or books for review purposes and every review of such an item is prefaced with an announcement that I received the item free.   I refuse to do paid reviews for products or books and insist on absolute editorial control of any reviews that I subsequently write and post on Battles & Book Reviews Publishing.  As far as I am aware I am not a stockholder in any company whose products I review.  I do benefit from sales through the B&BR Amazon Bookstore though.  If you click on one of our Amazon links and then “click through” to order any product from (not just the ones listed in our catalog), we then earn a modest sales commission.
