Every once in a blue moon, I get an email from someone who has found my site and wants me to check out a project, or a portfolio, or a product. When I received a request to review a wedding-planning book last week, I was very clear to the contact that I would read the free copy that they’d send to me, but if I hated it, I would not hesitate to blast it publicly here on the blog.
So here’s my disclaimer: Ally Asbe’s PR firm sent me a free copy of her wedding-planning book, At the Altar in Your Underwear: 40 Secrets to an Amazing Wedding and a Better You, and now I’m writing about it. If you follow that link above to Amazon and buy it, I’ll get a few pennies of the sale.
