LET ME REVIEW YOUR BOOK!
Like most writers, I also love to read.
If you have written a book which you would like reviewed, please send it to me using the form at the bottom of the page. If I read your book I will post reviews on AMAZON, TWITTER, FACEBOOK, GOODREADS and right here on my website - I'll also put your book's cover on my Pinboard "BOOKS I'VE REVIEWED". I'll do this for FREE - though if you want to return the favour I won't have a problem with that!
I will read most genres, including non-fiction - if yours is one I don't personally favour, I may ask one of my highly trusted review team to step in, though I do personally check and publish every one.
PLEASE NOTE: MY REVIEWS ARE DETAILED AND CONSTRUCTIVE - I WRITE HUNDREDS OF WORDS, rather than the simple nutshell summary others may provide (view examples here). I am honest about most aspects, but I'll never dash dreams! I prefer books in .PDF format - I highly recommend sending me finalized proofs, as I do consider formatting and grammar in my reviews.
PREMIUM REQUESTS WILL BE TREATED EQUALLY HONESTLY - I DO NOT GIVE GOOD REVIEWS IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY.
I rate books on the following 5-STAR basis:
- ***** "terrible - perhaps it's time to give it up!"
- ***** "well below-par"
- ***** "I've read worse, I suppose"
- ***** "pretty good"
- ***** "very good"
- ***** "superb! excellent! outstanding!"
I will always contact the author for permission before posting a review of 2-STARS or less, and may even recommend services I think may help (though, of course, will never pass your details to anyone else).
You should DEFINITELY read my SUBMISSIONS POLICY before sending me your book.
Please note that a free review is not guaranteed! I do offer a PREMIUM REVIEW SERVICE - for £25 I will guarantee your book is reviewed by myself within a couple of weeks, jumping ahead of free listings on My Bookshelf.
Additionally, your one-off Premium review payment will guarantee my personal review of all future books you send me (written by you) AT NO EXTRA COST*!
ARE YOU A PUBLISHER OR PUBLICIST?
Purchase 4 Premium reviews for £75, with a 30-day turnaround. Choose the option on the submission form below.
- Sending me your book is no guarantee that I will review it. In the absence of Premium reviews on My Bookshelf, I will read in no particular order, and will pick whichever submission takes my fancy next.
- Premium reviews will always be read before free submissions, and will always be read on a first-come-first-served basis.
- Your submission will not be considered a Premium review request until I have received confirmation of your payment to MJV Services by Paypal.
- I reserve the right to refuse Premium review requests for any reason - in these cases your payment will be immediately refunded in full.
- IN NO OTHER CASES (INCLUDING A BAD REVIEW) ARE PAYMENTS REFUNDED - this applies even if you choose not to allow the review to be posted. I do not offer favourable reviews in exchange for Premium payment!
- Please don't try to hurry me for a review - if you pester me I may reject your request and, if Premium, refund you.
- By sending me a non-Premium review, you accept that the review may have been written by one of my review team, though I always check and publish personally. I write all Premium reviews personally.
- Although I guarantee to read further submissions by Premium review customers, they will not jump the queue - only paid reviews are given a Premium priority timeframe.
While I promise to always create reviews impartially, without any bias or ulterior motive, in some cases I may consider it necessary to recommend you refer to the editorial services of professionals for whom I occasionally carry out paid editorial work. By submitting your writing you acknowledge and accept this disclosure.
