What’s in a review?
Your book review will feature a concise summary of the book in one paragraph, with highlights on plot points and structure. This is followed by a mini critique of the book and it is in this area that the reviewer shares their thoughts on the book, highlights the book’s strengths, taking into consideration elements of style — suspense, satire, humor, witticism —, the strength of the language, the storytelling craft, character depth, and others. We encourage reviewers to consider how well the book is written for the genre and what makes it worth trying.
You want to order a sponsored review if you are creating your marketing essentials and looking for quotable lines that can be featured on the book cover or the book’s Editorial Page on Amazon. You honestly want to get feedback that can help improve your craft from independent readers, or you just want to get word out about your book. You are guaranteed a review within 3-6 weeks, but there is no guarantee that it will be a positive review. We encourage authors to only submit final and polished manuscripts of their books to increase their chances of getting a starred review.
