Suzanne Rooyen (suzannevanrooyen) | 33 comments A little unsure of how this works now. I see there's an email address to review my book. Do I send them a copy of my book now or wait for some further 'official' group statement before doing so?

Tana (tana_t) | 8573 comments Mod
HI Suzanne, you can send them a copy any time ..some authors are sending the books as they are requested.

Thanks!

Lately (just before joining GR on Jan. 1)I've started the practice of posting a review of each book I read on Amazon and on GR. I've been an online reviewer for several different sites in the past (2007-2008)so have some practice at this. Plus, I average about a book a day LOL. Thanks.

My email address is: ycorreafb@gmail.com

Donna Galanti (donnagalanti) | 29 comments Hi All, does this include ARCs too? I have several to give out in PDF. My book releases 3-15-12 so I dont have a GoodReads author page yet for review posting.
Thanks!
Donna

what does ARC's and pdf mean? just wondering


Donna Galanti (donnagalanti) | 29 comments Hi Mary
An ARC is "advanced reader copy" which is what an author sends out in advance of his/her book release to early reviewers. Its the uncorrected version and there can be minor mistakes in it. The PDF is an electronic file of the book viewable in Adobe Acrobat, its a standard file. "Portable Document Format". You can read online or on a Kindle/Nook.

Thanks
Donna

Everything Marie (EverythingMarie) | 20 comments I am currently accepting novels for review and promotions.
Here’s a little info about my book review policies and procedures.
The first review is always free to all authors. However, I do request that the author:
1. Follow my blog (Everything Marie) and social networks
2. If the review is submitted on the author’s blog or another site, a link-back to my website is promoted
3. The author promotes/shares my review with their fans on other blogs/social networks
The review will be approximately one page and will contain an excerpt. Other bloggers will also have the ability to comment and share once the review is published on my website.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime. I am very flexible and have access to my email at all times. I have also provided a contact form below.
Have a wonderful day.

Jessica ~The book lover~  (_TeenBookWorm_) | 68 comments Hi, I'd love to sign up, since I'm running out of books at home more are welcome. I'd mainly read romance, YA and erotica. I'm not into things like thrillers and horror, but I do like some vampire books. E-books in PDF or something would be best but anything is good! Thanks.

Giovanni Valentino (thegiovannivalentino) | 8 comments Hi,
I am Giovanni Valentino.
I would love to read and review any science fiction or fantasy books out there. It would help if they were humorous but it isn't necessary.
I have my own blog and I would love to be on your blog tour. I leave Wednesday open for that. I will post all reviews there as well as here on good reads and amazon.

You know you can download free reader for computer / tablets? The free kindle app is here:

The author might offer the book in pdf format, for which there's Adobe viewer, and other programs, for PC.

Calibre is a free program that can read and convert many formats, and manage your personal library.


Phoenix Reads (phoenixreads) | 1 comments Hello. We are Lee and Gary Jordan and we are The Phoenix, multi-genre authors.

We have two books that are very different in genres and styles, but both are epics and have magic and supernatural themes. We would love to have more reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. So far both books have a 5 star rating on Amazon.

If you want to review, I will give you a Kindle gift version (need your email.)

Leon's Lair (International thriller/Contemporary Fantasy).

What would you do if your vacation cruise ship was being attacked and you knew you were going to be killed?

Would you fight? Would you hide? Would you try to escape?

This international thriller/contemporary fantasy is a nail-biting ride that is grisly but somewhat tongue-in-cheek, a brutal tale of horror and the occult that doesn't take itself too seriously. It includes romance, continental adventure, action, suspense, and dozens of vivid characters from around the world.

The adventure starts with The Jakarta, an elegant cruise ship sailing the exotic seas in Indonesia with a passenger list of ninety, unsuspecting people. Jane and her best friend, Remy, are just getting know the rest of the small group of young twenty-somethings when the ship is attacked by pirates. However, Leon and his band are not your usual pirates - they want something else.

Jane and two male companions escape the horror, fleeing in a lifeboat. In their flight to escape Leon and his men, they become lost at sea for weeks, are out of water, and have nearly lost hope of ever finding rescue when they finally catch sight of land, a dangerous rain-forested island that seems deserted. However, their fight for survival has only just begun.

They are not alone.
Fate is cruel.
They thought they had escaped, only to find they are caught in Leon's Lair.

Leon's Lair is an extensive rewrite of The Pirates of Vampire Island and includes the anticipated sequel. Instead of 160 pages it is about 615 pages.


A Whisper from Eden, A Historical Fantasy

In 1827 16-year-old, idealistic Clayton Pinckney
leaves his home and family in South Carolina in search of the strange Mandan in North Dakota, the same tribe that Louis and Clark found in their journey. He wants to be a recognized writer and is looking for a good story. He believes he will find it on the wild plains of the great northwest.

After an arduous journey, he finds their
villages perched high upon lofty cliffs overlooking the turbulent waters of the Missouri River, like walled fortresses and ruling kings from medieval times.

Clayton is delighted with the exotic Mandan
and their stories of gods from the past. He feels these are just lovely fairy tales until he finds that the rich and powerful Mandan can wield magic, magic
taught to them by their great god Lone Man, one of the People from Above.

Clayton falls hopelessly in love with the
beautiful and sometimes frightening medicine woman, Crying Wind, but she will not return his attentions. To win her, he becomes more and more involved with the tribe.

Then a devastating and evil catastrophe hits
the plains. The Mandan's beloved Lone Man had promised them that if they were ever in serious trouble, he would return in his chariot that sped through the sky like a comet.

Will he return to save the Mandan as promised?

About 600 pages.

On Smashword go to the page with your book where you can download or buy your book and there is a section called coupons. Click on it and it will give you a code number after you set the price. It can be as low as $0.00 so those that use the coupon will pay nothing for it. They give you a time line for using the coupon before it expires, normally thirty days. A.G.


Hope (hopefully86) | 6 comments Can anyone message me and let me know how to sign up for these ARR's? I am seriously lost in a labyrinth of discussion posts. THANK YOU. :)
