How should a blogger review books with editing issues?
When I first started accepting self-pub/indie review requests several years ago, I noticed spelling and grammatical errors. I'm not the pickiest person in the world when it comes to those things. I also felt like these were new authors brave enough to put something out there and were still learning their craft and couldn't afford to hire an editor. I'm not talking about a hot mess of errors or overall bad writing; just enough that you notice but it doesn't deter from the story.
If reviewers don't mention editing problems anymore, does that mean publishers will feel like it's a good way to cut corners? It seems like they're headed that way already with quite a few self-pub titles that they bought and published.
*I just want to point out that, as always, I'm not targeting or trying insult any group of authors or readers. I'm honestly curious about how this issue influences your reading and reviewing.
* I also want to note that I am aware that I am writing a post about editing and grammatical mistakes and there are probably a dozen in this post.
