Need a Book Review? List of Book Reviewers Here

Reviews sell products and books, but authors need folks to write book reviews for them. Are you interested in providing book reviews for authors? If you love to read books and give your opinion about them, I can direct authors to you. They will send you a complimentary copy of their book, and, in turn, you will provide a book review by posting it on Amazon.com or sending the digital copy directly to the author.

Simply leave a comment below this post and give us your blog URL. Then, make sure your blog has a way for people to contact you such as a Twitter connection, an active profile, or information that directs people to the contact page of your Web site. (I don't advise you to leave your home phone number or an exposed email address on the Internet.)

Are you an author looking for someone to review your book? Here is a partial list of people or companies that provide book reviews. We will add others as new reviewers volunteer.
A great followup for authors who are having their books reviewed is to be interviewed on Internet radio shows and podcasts. See a list of these opportunities on WITS Web site.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is a good format to follow in setting up and writing your book review:

Give your book review a title
Book Title: In bold italic font
Author of book:
ISBN:
Publisher and pub year
Pages:
Reviewer Byline: your name or short bio (date of review)

Your credibility is enhanced when your reviews are a blend of balanced opinion and concrete example. Please offer your reader an idea of what the author intends to share and a recommendation of whether or not to read the book.

Just so people know, I work with non-fiction at this point.

Good topics/categories would be self-help, inspirational, writing and publishing, "green" topics, small business

I review novels, medical books (both textbooks and mainstream stuff) and vegetarian cookbooks for the online magazine Suite101 (and possibly other websites). Books related to disability would also be a great match.

Thanks for a great lists of people reviewing books! If you like, you can also add us.

We review books about personal development, spirituality, meditation, Dharma, coaching, positive psychology, counselling, published in the last 6 months.

We review books on behalf of the Institute of Subjective Well-Being (http://www.iswb.org/) and AmAre Way blog (http://www.amareway.org/).

To be considered for review, please send by email:
- a compelling story of why potential readers should read the book
- a book summary
- author's bio
- if possible, endorsements from researchers, writers, etc. any other press-kit and relevant information

If selected for review, we will ask you to send a copy of the book by mail. We do not publish negative reviews of books, however we do outline both good points and points which may have been developed more by the authors. Also, if in our opinion (totally subjective!) a book does not deliver value to potential readers, then we may abstaing from publishing a review.

Thanks, best regards,

frank
