The author asked me to be removed from the tour, even though I asked if i could still promote the book. There's nothing wrong with this, it's her choice. I would not have posted a negative review anyway, because that's part of the tour agreement.
I cannot stress enough that even though I didn't like the book, I was still willing to post a promotion in case other people might find it interesting. I don't understand why the author didn't choose this option, but like I said, it's her choice. I wish her all the best with her work.
The tour organiser has apologised for not contacting me prior, and says not liking the book will never affect my tour host status. I am still working with the company and likely will be for a long time.
The tour organiser says no one has contacted the company about 'Goodreads bullies' or otherwise warned them about any reviewer.
