Where to Start

First time here? This is a good place to get started.  Welcome to the community of readers and reviewers.  We need help to get books reviewed with your honest opinion.  First check out our reviewing groups. It’s a good way to review books. Find an open group and join it. Then download the book sample pages or read it online and write a review.
We wait till everyone has reviewed it before we give you the full book. Then we discuss it with you and decide whether to publish it or not. Don’t worry, the author can’t see the reviews, so please give us honest reviews. Honest reviews let us give better feedback to authors who aren’t yet ready to publish. It helps them improve and get to the point of creating an amazing book.
