As I was attracted to this site by the thought that there were people out there who genuinely wanted to review books, I am now a little bemused. I have a novel-a thriller- I would like reviewed but all of the subjects under discussion seem to be about other things!
Are there any people/members left who would just like to read a good story and pass comment. I still do; am I alone?
I'm sure you're not alone. The whole reason I started writing book reviews is because I enjoy doing exactly that - reading a good story and passing comment. Heck, I have my friend's first book winging it's way to me in the post as I type. I have another 11 books lined up that I thought sounded good and I can't wait to get into to while away my evenings... so no, you're not alone.
Also, I love a good thriller and would love to review but I'm afraid of disappointing you with waiting because of the aforementioned book pile... I wouldn't be able to get around to reading it until at least mid-october :(
Hello, Hayley. I'm in the same situation as Jack. You mentioned that you enjoy thrillers so you may be interested in Chill Run. Fortunately there isn't a huge rush since I only need a review published on December 1, 2011.
The first two teaser chapters and the media kit are in the links below. If you're interested please let me know.
I read your review and left you a comment, Melissa. Do you only read YA novels because it you do I have one entitled Merlin's Kin I can let you have or would you be prepared to try a thriller?
I wasn't too sure what you meant by follow but my Twitter name is Jack_59 and I am on Facebook.
Well, I'm afraid I can't help with the review (I only review romances), but I can give you some suggestions and bump you on on the forum. :)
There are lots of people here who love to do reviews. I would suggest joining groups that would fit your book and leaving posts there asking for reviewers. Giving a short synopsis is helpful too in finding reviewers since they can get a feel of the book. Another thought is that there are several people here who can't read e-books, so you might want to consider sending out a a few print copies if they are available. (I don't know if it's e-book only or not).
Don't get discouraged. This site covers a lot of different people from authors needing reviews, to authors needing help, to reviewers needing suggestions, etc. There are a lot of different kinds of discussions. Good luck with your book!
I just received my first review for my third book that just came out. Check it out, if you like.
