Jay Howard (jay_howard) GROUP 13 - moderator Marie-Anne Mancio
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

START DATE: 15 June 2013

END DATE: 17 September 2013


Please remember the commitment you are making to your fellow group members. If you don’t think you can manage to do 4 book reviews between these dates please let me know now. I will find someone else for this group and you will be able to choose a later group that will be more suitable for you. If you pull out after the start date for any reason it is the other members who will be faced with the problem of finding a replacement, or missing out on reviews, through no fault of their own. Please don’t ask the moderators to chase after replacements as we just don’t have the time.

It is the responsibility of the author to get their book to their reviewer in a format the reviewer can manage. When the file is received, please post a GR link to the book in this thread so that the author has confirmation that reviewing of the correct book has started.

There are no set dates for the start of each round. You can each work at your own pace, within the limits of the round deadlines. All reviews must be posted by 29 June 2013.

When you have posted your review on GR please post a link to your review in this thread.

All reviews of 3, 4 or 5 stars must be posted to GR, Amazon .com and Amazon.co.uk.

If the rating is 1 or 2 stars, the review must be posted to GR but the author should be asked if they want the review to go to Amazon or not.

Postings to any other sites are by agreement by both author and reviewer.

DON’T FORGET TO POST THE LINK TO THE BOOK(S) YOU WILL BE PUTTING FORWARD FOR REVIEWING AS I REQUESTED IN MY PM TO YOU. FAILURE TO DO SO BY THE GROUP START DATE MAY RESULT IN YOU LOSING YOUR PLACE TO ANOTHER MEMBER.

In the next post are the listings for the 4 review rounds, the who reviews who stuff. You don’t have to put forward the same book for every round, but you can only ask for one review per round.

Happy reviewing, everyone :)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) If I’ve missed something that results in you being asked to review someone who has already reviewed you, please let me know asap. ‘Sign in’ by pasting the GR link to the book you want reviewed, and start swapping books ready for round 1 once I’ve posted that we’re all signed in and there are no clashes needing a rearrangement of the order.

message 4: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Good to see the enthusiasm, but don't forget that book link ;)


message 5: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Thanks, Sabena. Once we're all checked in you should all PM the people who are due to review your book and sort out what format they want and how to get it to them.


message 6: by Enrico (new)

Enrico Antiporda | 22 comments Cool. I'm set and ready to review. The book I want reviewed in all four rounds is A Light in the Cane Fields. Here's the link:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...

If by chance any of those scheduled to review it have already read it, here's a link to 'Stolen (Book One)':

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

Looking forward to new reading material!


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

I can't wait!

Although, I have one question....is it alright to specify my books for review according to the gender of the assigned reviewer for each round, or does it have to be the same book for all four rounds? Just asking out of curiosity.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

This is great.
On my hols at the moment but I will be in touch with the people I am down to review at the end of the week :)

Dee


message 10: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Thanks, Kathy and Enrico.
Dominique - you'll know who is going to review your work for each round, and it is your choice what novel you want reviewed. Any member is free to change book for any round, or to offer a choice to their reviewer.
D.M. - please don't forget to post you GR book page link - and have a good holiday!

Thanks, Jay!

Gloria Piper | 197 comments Ah, it's good to dive in. I have 3 books up for review. Hope you like fantasy and science fiction. My books are Finnegan's Quest, Train to Nowhere, and Emperor's Hostages. You can read a sample of each on Amazon. For those who will be choosing which book to review, contact me and I will give you a coupon code, so you can download the book of your choice for free from smashwords.com.


message 22: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Scharhag Hi, All. The book I would like reviewed is The Order of the Four Sons: Book I. It's available for free through Smashwords:

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

My last name is actually spelled Scharhag.

Happy reading!


message 23: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Thanks everyone. We're nearly set now :)
Can we have you links please, Susanna and D.L.? Then we can crack on.

Lauren, I'm so sorry, getting your name wrong is unforgivable, rude in the extreme, but it was not deliberate, just a typo, so perhaps you'll let me off?

Not a problem, happens all the time when you have a last name like Scharhag. :)


message 26: by Jay (last edited Jun 10, 2013 12:21PM) (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) It is unusual, but not as hard to spell as my oppo in work - Remiszewski. I keep wanting to put the s and z the wrong way round so I have it on autocorrect from Rem now!

Where does your name originate from? Or is that being too nosy?

LOL! Someone besides me would have to use it though, I think. :)


message 32: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Just to keep you up to date - I PMed Susanna and D.L. but got no reply. If they haven't checked in by Friday night I have 2 people waiting to take their places. This means that we will keep the numbers and you'll keep those positions, so you can go ahead and swap the first files if you're not affected by those 2 missing members.


message 33: by Gloria (new)

Gloria Piper | 197 comments I'm scheduled to review Susanna's book for Round 1, and I haven't heard anything from her either. I gather she's a very busy lady, but I'm feeling squirmy. Would it complicate things too much if we took our 4 rounds in any order?


message 34: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) Don't worry Gloria - you'll have a different (very keen) member to contact after tomorrow night if we still haven't heard from Susanna.

Just so everyone knows - there's no limit to when you can start a round. You can pick up all 4 files now if you want. You can post all reviews next week if you want. You can do round 4 first if you want.
BUT
You must stick to the round end dates, so round 1 review must be posted by 06 July. If you're going to struggle with that let the group moderator (Marie-Anne) and the person whose book you are due to review know there will be a delay. I'm sure an appropriate apology will earn you an arrangement you can manage. We all understand how life can get in the way of the best laid plans. Just keep everyone informed - there's nothing worse than waiting around and not knowing what's happening ;)

You could always use it spelled backwards and combined with some other name. :-)

I was supposed to read D.L.'s book next, but I will go ahead and move to what's next on my list until we hear from him.

Jay Howard (jay_howard) My goodness that's fast! I do like enthusiasm :)

DL and Susanna still haven't shown up so I'm replacing them today with 2 other members - I'll put details up after my tea (I'm famished! long day at work).


message 40: by Jay (new)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) OK, there you go, and welcome to CS (Craig) and JC.

I'll hand over to your group moderator, Marie-Anne now. Enjoy your time with the group :)
