From time to time I get a request to review a book. I’m listed as reviewing poetry, but have been sent other genres as well.
It’s work and I take it seriously. I try hard to be consistent with star counts. I send the draft review to the author for approval, which happens almost every time.
I post the review on Amazon next to the Kindle edition of the book, and sometimes elsewhere. GoodReads is a frequent request.
I do this for free. Sometimes one or more of my authors will review some of my work, sent to them electronically. I choose writers I personally considered to be five-star talents.
Most of these authors don’t even reply to my request. Even ones for whom I’ve reviewed several Kindle books.
That’s OK. I do a review for you with no obligation on your part.
I will confess that I (almost always) really enjoy these works, and frequently learn something – a bonus.
So, if you find me on the Kindle Book Review Team, you will know where to send your work.
I’ve done about 170 ‘formal’ reviews, and half as many informal/have a look please, ones as well. That’s the brag.
