In joining this review group you have agreed to review the novels assigned to you on a two month schedule. This group is now in the review phase and is no longer open for sign up.

This is Non-Fiction Review Group 2, which will include all works classified as non-fiction including self-help. (If you are uncertain about whether your work qualifies, message the moderator with the link to your work's Goodread page.) As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. If the review is positive (three stars or higher on Amazon), the review should be posted to Amazon (US and UK) as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement.

If a reviewer and the author agree that the review should not be posted to Goodreads due to quality issues, the reviewer is relieved of the requirement of posting the review. If this occurs in the first round, the second reviewer is relieved of the requirement to read and review the book. This is entirely at the discretion of the reviewer and is not intended in any way to manipulate the rating of any book.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews.

If you are going to be late with your review, either post to this topic as soon as possible or message the author and the moderator.

If your book has not been reviewed by the deadline for either round, contact the review group moderator. This is necessary to make certain that the review process is fair for everyone.

Note that any participant who makes no effort to fulfill his or her commitment to this group will have all reviews of his or her work resulting from this group deleted and his or her membership in the Genre Specific Review Group will be terminated.

Authors:

The review schedule has been posted in the initial comment of this topic. Please review it and let me know of any problems as soon as possible. Note that there was no way to avoid all interactions between Carly and Ibiloye and Carly and Anthony. So, Carly is scheduled to review Anthony's book.

Carly wrote: "R., as per our PM discussion before you made up the ordering, I *can't* review any of Anthony's books since he has already reviewed one of my books. That is not the same as saying we need to avoid ..."

We have done this before and not had a problem with Amazon. However, the schedule of review has been revised per Carly's suggestion. Anthony is scheduled to review Carly in the first round. Carly will provide Anthony with a different book to review.

Actually, we have lost a member of this group. You are welcome to join for the second round of reviews in his place. Your assignment is to read Angelique Bochnak's book. Christy Nicholas will be reviewing your book for the second round.
