Greeting, book lovers! I love books and am now offering book reviews as a part of my Author Promotions Services. I am a professional social media marketer by trade and I have the potential reach of over ten million followers. My followers trust my opinion and if I tell them a book/blog is great, they will often check it out. Many readers discover new authors via word of mouth, especially quality honest book reviews. I love promoting authors and this is a great way to get exposure for you and your book. Together, we can increase your sales and gain new readers. Before I let you know what I am looking for and how I operate, let me tell you a little bit about me.
I was born in Minnesota, lived in Southern California only to move to chilly Ontario, Canada to marry my beloved husband MR N. I am the author of Princess of the Light, an inspiring urban fantasy romance. My expertise while working for a large bookstore has helped me tremendously in how to write, edit, review, market and promote books in today’s publishing market. I am a graduate of a small college located in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and I love helping writers achieve their dream of being published.
My reviewing interests are as varied as the books I have in my own personal library and include contemporary fiction, young adult, women’s fiction, nonfiction, memoirs and children’s books. My heart is immediately drawn to mystery/suspense, romance, historical fiction, spirituality, horror, science fiction, fantasy and sports. Most of all, I’m drawn to a book with a strong voice and interesting characters. I want to be a part of the story and be taken on a fantastic journey.
I am blissfully happy and loves all things chocolate, books, music, movies, art, sports and baking. Most of the time you can find me on Twitter or getting new ideas on how to spread the Light on Pinterest.
Now that you know a little bit about me, here is my review policy:
If you are an author of a book (indie, small press or traditional), please send me an email nnlight [at] outlook [dot] com with the following information:
Link to your book (website, Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Goodreads)
Why do you want me to review your book
Anything else you would like me to know
Your Paypal Address so I can invoice you the amount of $5.
If I accept and agree to review your book, I will need an electronic ARC (preferred format is either Mobi or E-Pub) sent to the email above.
In return this is what you can expect for your $5 fee:
I will read your book in 4-8 weeks. If an emergency pops up, I will email you to keep you updated.
I will rate your book 1-5 stars and will write a concise review. I do not reveal spoilers and my reviews are not overly long. If I feel it is below 3 stars, I will not post my review and will email you to let you know the reasons behind my rating. Books are very subjective and I will not like/love every book I come across.
I will be fair and honest while never demeaning an author. I am an author, too, so I know how valuable reviews are.
I will post the review on this blog, Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes and Noble.
Once my review is up, it will go out to all of my social media networks and the possible reach is just over ten million.
I will create five specialized tweets that will go out throughout the day/evening.
I will NOT under any circumstances take down a review. I am a professional reviewer and when I review a book, it is my opinion. If you don’t care for what I’ve said, I’m sorry to say it’s too bad. I’m honest and have been reviewing books for over twenty years.
In addition to reviewing books here, I am a book blogger and reviewer for the following:
YA Bound Book Tours
Masquerade Book Tours
HEA Book Tours
There has been a lot of misinformation online about paid book reviews. Here are the facts: http://www.selfpublishingreview.com/2015/02/the-truth-about-ftc-guidelines-for-paid-book-reviews/
In essence, you are not paying for a book review but for the marketing of said review. I read and review books as a reader and am 100% honest. I stake my reputation on my reviews and will not give a book 5 stars unless I truly believe the book deserves it. 🙂
I look forward to hearing from you and Happy Reading!
