Our Town Book Reviews - services and pricing
My philosophy about reviews.
I hate long reviews. Nothing depresses me more than to find out the whole story before I purchase the book. In fact, after I have read a long review describing the whole story, I don't purchase the book.
I think reviews are meant to be tantalizing. Just enough of a tease to make a reader want to read the book. There is no question that a review should talk about writing skills. About talents of an author. Even about other successes of its author. But still, when all is said and done, the purpose is to leave the reader with a keen need to read the book immediately.
Authors will always be notified when the review is posted.
Author may choose to read review in advance of posting and decline post.
Our Town Books posts on Amazon, BookBub, Goodreads, B&N. (another place if you prefer)
I would like to post the review on my own blog if you will send me an author jpg and a book cover jpg.
I don't write bad reviews. If something is not well written I'm not going to praise it, and I have been known to say what I think. But trashing an author does absolutely no one any good.
IF I get something that is totally unreadable or offensive in some way, I notify the author and won't review.
I do not review, proof, or edit erotic romance.
