Free Reviews for Indie Authors!

Lately I’ve missed reviewing indie books, which is something I used to do frequently and even did as a paid gig for a while. That is why I am offering the opportunity for any indie authors to contact me for a review if they are interested. Why indie authors? Because I myself am one, and I know how much reviews and promotion of any sort matter to an indie author’s success. Types of books I am most likely to consider reviewing are art, poetry, nonfiction, and children’s indie books.

Here are the specifics if you are interested:

  • I DO prefer a physical copy of the book, especially if it is heavy on text. Partly because I am not big on reading ebooks, and partly because having the physical copy is great for sharing a pic on social media!
  • I will review the books on Amazon and Goodreads (if the book is listed on both sites), and will also share links or photos of the books on social media (all together I have nearly 8,000 followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook).
  • I may or may not share about the book here on my blog, depending on whether the subject matter fits my blog themes.
  • I DO NOT charge for reviews, although donations are accepted if the author is so inclined. Any donations will be used to help finance this blog or for social media promotional purposes. Donations of any amount can easily be made on this blog via the “Support My Blog” page, or donations can be sent via snail mail with the book being reviewed.

If you have any questions or would like to submit your book for review, please contact me at Shojobeatgirl@live.com. If you know an indie author who would be interested, please share the link to this post!

Ask me an author question on goodreads!

This is a short post to let all my fans and readers know that I have just signed up for the Goodreads “Ask the Author” program. For those who are unfamiliar with Goodreads, I would suggest you check it out. It is a great place for book lovers! Not only can you showcase all the books you have read and share what you thought of them, but you can also see what your friends are reading, send suggestions to people looking for books to read, join groups and online book clubs interested in various genres, enter to win free books in their giveaways and much more!

As for the “Ask the Author” program, it is a neat way to learn more about your favorite authors and to ask them anything that you would like to know. I definitely plan to try to answer any questions I receive (unless they are offensive or I simply start receiving too many to respond to them all). I have already answered a few questions, which you can see the answers to on my Goodreads author page. I hope if you are a Goodreads user that you will stop by and ask me something!
