Melody's eyes met with the Bardo -- and she knew she would never be the same again.

Melody Jackson v. the Woman in White

Although not updated on Goodreads yet, this is a new cleaned up version of the book with a snazzy new cover to boot.

I can provide just about any format you need, and would love some more honest reviews before the sequel shortly comes out...

It all began with a blood-curdling scream in the middle of the night. This spurs on an investigation by Melody Jackson and her family which leads all over Portland. Enlisting the help of Lonnie's friends, Chazz and Malika, the group looks to resolve the mystery of not only the woman in white, but of two mysterious men in a van, and the dreaded Bardo!

Gareth (gareth_torrance) | 1 comments Valkyria is a "post-post-apocalyptic" Steampunk story, set in a world rebuilt after ours ended. I can give the PDF or Mobi versions to anyone who would like to read it and give it an honest review. :)

Valkyria

"In a world gripped by a cold war where mutated hoards roam the land, the lives of three men from different nations are about to intertwine, starting a chain reaction that could very well ignite the embers of war."

John Thurlbeck (goodreadscomjohnthurlbeck) Hi Gareth

I'd be delighted to read Valkyria over the Xmas break and give it an honest review. Please send me a Mobi file to wearconsulting@gmail.com and I'll get back to you as soon as I can and before the end of the year at the latest.

Tony Reyes | 4 comments I have a self-published book on Amazon and just finished book 2. I would love to get some reviews (both here and Amazon) for the first book, and if you like it maybe the second. I am a television producer in Houston. I write, direct, shoot and edit for the promotion department. I have several screenplays and have produced several short films. I was hired recently to write a biopic screenplay, which was great, but I find I enjoy the freedom of novel writing much more. Enough about me.....to the book.

Waiting for Darkness
Cruz Espinoza, a brilliant young surgeon, has his life ripped from him as he is pulled into the supernatural world of the Darkling. Cruz looks for answers to millennia old questions. Where did the Vampire myth come from? Who gave them these powers? Was there a fall from Grace? He finds the answers - answers that shake his faith.

http://tinyurl.com/hhf4j8l

I have gotten a dozen or so reviews, take a look maybe it will give you some insight into whether it is a good fit for you.

If it sounds like something you would be interested in, I can get a mobi out to you. (Or epub or pdf if you prefer) If you have any questions, ask away.

Thank you for your time,
Tony Reyes

Jean Kaczmarek | 6 comments Hi,

ARAKNEA is a fantasy-steampunk-manga story full of giant robots, and magic. http://amzn.to/1m9ZQp7

"When the Enshrine of Fire from Adrion is stolen, Lords Skorpios has no doubt, that Friss, the Fortress-sentinel of the North, is at the heart of this sacrilege.

Isis and Mentor, travelers and mercenaries, find themselves plunged into the heart of a quest which pulls them towards the unspeakable.

Will Isis have enough courage and will to save her life, that of her close relations, and for, maybe, protect the humanity of these Phages which devour her world ?"

I provide you an e-book ( .epub file ) upon request for a honest review.

Mark Parker | 5 comments I hope you folks are having better luck giving away books than I am. I still have 10 copies of my new middle grade novel, Shaky Man, that I would send to anyone in the US in return for a timely, honest review and rating. Set in a small town outside of Waco, Texas in the 1960's, it is a story of baseball, unexpected friendships, racism, understanding and the things that go through any young boy's mind during times of turbulence. There is even a murder and a trial. So far, it's only received 5 star ratings. School teachers and librarians especially love it for their kids due to the teaching lessons it offers. Just send your mailing address to marksparkerwriter@gmail.com. Thanks, Mark

I'm having problems getting reviews for Sing The Blues. Seems to be a lot harder now than it ever was. So it's a very similar problem to yours. I feel it's one of my better works, so it's disheartening. It's a shame I'm not in the US...


message 12: by Mike (new)

I have exactly the same challenge. I also write horror and supernatural fiction, I have a novel and two short story collection currently available. Let me know if you would ever be interested in an honest review swap.

I would definitely be interested in a review swap! A short story collection for another one? Mine is Dark Erotica but there is more horror than erotica. Let me know if you're still okay with this. I have a pdf file to send :)


message 15: by Mike (new)

Mike Driver | 5 comments Hi Tina, I'd be happy to do that. Can you send your pdf to driver.michael@btinternet.com and i'll send you a copy of my pdf by return. Mike

Tina Collins (tcollins44) Sure Okay! Will send now :)


message 17: by Katherine (new)

Katherine (kate_broderick) | 2 comments I'm in the same boat. I can't seem to get anyone to review Hospital Hill. I'm willing to do a swap as well!


message 18: by Mark (new)

Mark Parker | 5 comments I can say it might help getting interest in your books if you include the Goodreads link (see add book/author above) instead of just typing the book title in your solicitation. That way the reader can quickly find out more about your book before committing to a review or swap. It looks like a long link when you put it in the comment box, but it looks the same when you post it. Shaky Man is still available to anyone in the US who is willing to provide an honest, timely review in return. If I get five takers, I'll be thrilled.

Thanks,
Mark


message 19: by Laura (new)

Laura Wolfe | 1 comments I'm looking for more reviews on Amazon and Goodreads for my YA mystery, Trail of SecretsTrail of Secrets (Fire and Ice YA, August 2015).

Here is the back cover blurb:

Spending three weeks of her summer at the elite Foxwoode Riding Academy in northern Michigan should have been one of the happiest times of sixteen year-old Brynlei’s life. But from the moment Brynlei arrives at Foxwoode, she can’t shake the feeling she’s being watched. Then she hears the story of a girl who vanished on a trail ride four years earlier. While the other girls laugh over the story of the dead girl who haunts Foxwoode, Brynlei senses that the girl—or her ghost—may be lurking in the shadows.

Brynlei’s quest to reveal the truth interferes with her plan to keep her head down and win Foxwoode’s coveted “Top Rider” award. To make things worse, someone discovers Brynlei’s search for answers and will go to any length to stop her. As Brynlei begins to unravel the facts surrounding the missing girl’s disappearance, she is faced with an impossible choice. Will she protect a valuable secret? Or save a life?

I can send free digital copies in either .mobi or .ePub formats. Email me at: lawolfe@comcast.net if you're interested. Thanks!

Nicholas Adams (adamnicholes) | 1 comments I'm also looking for readers and book bloggers to read and write an honest review of my debut novel Avenging Angels.

Please read the synopsis before you decide to read my book, and send me a Private Message if you'd like to get a free digital copy.

All the best,

message 21: by Jay (new)

Jay Cutts | 15 comments I've also had trouble getting readers and reviewers. The few people that have offered to read have mostly not posted a review or gotten back to me. If I can find a few who will review, I'll probably ask them to buy the book and I'll pay them back once they've posted a review.

One problem with reviewing each other's books is that Amazon may reject one of the reviews. They seem to be actively blocking bloggers and such mutual review arrangements.

Another problem is that I'm pretty picky about what I like and there are many genres that I just am not going to really enjoy. Wish I had some other ideas for getting reviews.


message 22: by Brenda (new)

Brenda Sedgwick (brendahsedgwick) | 6 comments Not long out. 5* reviews and 99p ebook. Romantic - divorce- humor. I want to give away 10 copies anywhere in the world, but I have to be in the U.K and that will be mid January. It's building, sales steadily. People that read it are highly entertained and love it. It doesn't rely on sex, but on a good original story. An English heroine who travels through France and Spain.

Marcia Carrington | 1 comments I have two perma-free books on Amazon US, both short stories.

The first, ADAM, MY GUARDIAN ANGEL, is a supernatural fantasy which has a 4.5 star rating from readers:

http://amzn.to/1OTJOJW

My other book is romantic comedy SABRINA'S SURPRISE VISITOR:

http://amzn.to/1ILAMtc

I would appreciate feedback on both books, especially the second, as the first has some reviews already, which have been helpful.

If anyone would like any of my other books to read, I can send copies via Amazon or PDF.

Thank you so much for this opportunity.


message 26: by Mike (new)

Mike Driver | 5 comments Hi, I have five copies of my novel Fall, Leaves, Fall available free and I'm looking for any honest reviews and feedback.

Its a supernatural noir thriller, and its an bit of a throwback to the golden age of 1970's horror that focuses on creeping scares rather than gore and splatter. It has been well received so far so please PM me if it sounds like your kind of book and you would like a free pdf copy.

I've heard that Amazon is cracking down on mutual reviews, not allowing them. Maybe we could get away with some kind of circle of reviews. For example, there could be five authors, A-E. A could review B's book, B reviews C's book, C reviews D's book, D reviews E's book and E reviews A's book. I suspect Amazon is already looking for triangles of reviews.


message 32: by Jay (new)

Jay Cutts | 15 comments So, fellow authors, here's my proposal. If you're interested in participating in a circle of reviews, contact me by email at orders [at} cuttsreviews d-o-t com. We'll find five us that like each others' books enough to do an honest review and we'll agree on some guidelines to make sure everyone actually gets their book reviewed.

The "circle" avoids (hopefully) Amazon's prohibition on mutual reviews. For example, there could be five authors, A-E. A could review B's book, B reviews C's book, C reviews D's book, D reviews E's book and E reviews A's book.

Mila Rossi (milarossi) | 2 comments Hi all,

Below is the blurb of my latest contemporary romance novella. If you'd like to read/review it on Goodreads/Amazon, e-mail me at mila@milarossi.com.

Thank you!

Mila Rossi

Change of Plans
Sarah Thompson is a twenty-five year old girl on a mission: go to her friend’s office party, find an attractive guy and lose her virginity. When she meets rough and rugged Jason Hendricks, she knows she’s found her one-night-stand.

Jason knows about MMA fights and boxing. He doesn’t know jack about virgins and wants to keep it that way. When Sarah turns out to be just that instead of the experienced vixen she led him to believe, he’s in for the shock of his life.

Trying to move on from their disastrous night is easier said than done, as Jason’s guilty conscience can’t let the sweet, brown-eyed girl go. Determined to show her a good time, he tries to convince her that a redo of their time together is a must. Sarah is tempted, but can she stick to her promise and give in only to lust, or will she fall for the brooding fighter?


message 39: by Alex (new)

Alex Lawson (alexlawsonauthor) | 4 comments Hi all,

I am a first time novelist and looking for some good honest review on my book.

'Journals of a Psychopath' is an epic tale about one mans psychotic mind and his belief in the trees that leads him on a dark journey to despair, delusion and the destruction of those around him. Charming yet brutal, Clarkson Samuel's endless search for slivery blonde haired ladies is chilling for the reader to comprehend such a mind set.

If you are interested I can send you a PDF via email in exchange for a review on Amazon and Goodreads.

Many thanks! And best wishes, Alex :-)

Anna Castiglioni (annacastiglioni) | 3 comments The Healing Harp is a story of a teenage orphan whose sole comfort is playing her harp. She is eventually adopted by a couple. It's a story of friendship, family, and music. Currently on Amazon (no reviews), and linked to my author profile. I'll give a free PDF for reviews. I'd really like some opinions what's good, what needs work. I may decide to re-write it (not plot-wise, but better writing in general). Thanks.
