Review Request...aka Marketing is a Pain

This is my first blog post.  I've submitted review requests to 43 different sites.  I have heard from 7; 4 will review Special Offers (yay!), but not for a while, 1 will post an "author interview" instead of a review (Yay!), 2 said no way outright (but I appreciate the fact that they got back to me), and the rest I haven't heard from.  Frustrating!!!  I realize that these people are doing a huge favor by even agreeing to review in the first place and I appreciate their effort (even if I never hear back from them).  I have no idea if my % "Yes, I'll review it" is good or bad, but I suppose a 10% return rate isn't too terrible.
So, in the mean time, I am hoping that the book still sells a few copies a week just to keep me from getting too bummed.  Hopefully, the reviewers will have positive things to say about it and that will get some people to check it out.
