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 Short Book Review Group 2 - Fantasy/Science Fiction which includes any work that fits either genre and is 50,000 words or less. 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.

1 Carol Holland March - That Day in the Desert: A Storyteller Tale That Day in the Desert A Storyteller Tale by Carol Holland March

Robby Charters (robbycharters) | 203 comments My book is currently in pre-released, but should hae been launched by the time the first round is complete: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

BTW, Carol is currently reading it to review, and I'm reading another one of hers, so it might be nice to assign us to different ones...

Allan Walsh | 14 comments I'd like to participate (Allan Walsh)- my book is https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
This is only around 5000 words and is a sci-fi/horror. I think it fits the bill :)

My book is not free on Amazon, but I have an EPUB or Mobi version I can send out at request.

Grea Alexander (greaalexander) I'd like to participate. I write Supernatural Horror, however, so I'm unsure if that counts under Fantasy (although Supernatural/Paranormal is often classified under the Fantasy genre).

I'd like to submit Miael: Family.

Miael Family (Miael #1) by Grea Alexander

I send out codes via Smashwords. It's choose your own platform: epub, mobi, pdf, lrf, pdb or read online

D.M. Pruden | 6 comments I'd like to participate. My book is The Ares Weapon, listed here and sold on Amazon.
