Jack Thompsen (notsoseriousjack) | 59 comments Is anyone interested in picking up on the review exchange the group previously held? We'd need about 8-10 authors and then we'd each get one book to review. I suggest we purchase the ebooks for verified reviews. Anyone keen?

UPDATED: If you are keen, all you need to do is add your children's picture book title, price (Kindle) and link below in a message. Once we have enough authors, I'll draw up a list of who will purchase and review which book.

To join, you NEED to be able to review on Amazn US!

Jack Thompsen (notsoseriousjack) | 59 comments I'll start. I'm keen to enter with my children's picture book, Noble the Happy Kid available for $3.99.

Cheryl Colwell (mailcheryllynncolwellcom) | 1 comments Hi Jack. Nice idea. I'd be glad to do a review swap with you. My picture book just came out too. "Unstoppable Penelope Jane" could use some reviews.
Here's the blurb: Penelope Jane faces her first soccer game filled with new and scary challenges. Will they stop her or will she reach her goal? Find out in this delightful rhyming read-aloud children's book.
I'll pick up "Noble the Happy Kid" today.

Sally Huss (sallyhuss) | 30 comments Hi Cheryl, I'd be happy to review your book. Send something like a PDF or let me know when your have it in a promotion and I'll grab it so that you have a "verified" purchaser review. Thanks, Sally

Hi Cheryl,
I guess I wasn't very clear as to how the review exchange would work. No one must purchase or swap any books yet. All you do is add your book title and link if you are keen to join. Once we have 8-10 authors who are keen, I will let you know who will purchase and review which book. I'll update the instructions to make it clearer. As you've already purchased my book, when the time comes, I will list you for my book.

Hi Sally,
This is a purchase review exchange and you don't get to choose whose book you review. If you are keen to join, you simply add your book title and link and when we have enough authors, I will make a list of who reviews whose book and each person will review one book and get one review. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you are keen to join.

Jack Thompsen (notsoseriousjack) | 59 comments Children's picture book authors - is there anyone else interested in getting reviews on this group? If so read the rules and join up!

Hi Laura,
There's not enough interest yet, but let's be patient and wait and see and if other children's book authors are interested in getting reviews, perhaps they'll sign up and we can do this.

Jack Thompsen (notsoseriousjack) | 59 comments I'm not getting a very good response to the messages I sent out. Still waiting to hear back from the others. Will keep you updated.

Gia Saulnier (giazzpet) | 72 comments Mod
Hi - admin here.
Please be really careful with this. I heard that Amazon is cracking down on reviews from others that have not really read your book. Or from "friends" (which is kind of ridiculous, but that's my two cents). My book is no longer on the market but I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Hi Gia,
Agreed, that's why we are actually buying the books and reading them before reviewing :)


message 27: by Jack (new)

Jack Thompsen (notsoseriousjack) | 59 comments Dear Ronit, Eugenia and Bev,
I think we can go ahead with the four of us as I still haven't heard back from anyone else. We'll do as follows:

Jack reviews Ronit
Ronit reviews Bev
Bev reviews Eugenia
Eugenia reviews Jack

Remember that you need to purchase and then place your honest feedback! Will message everyone now.
Thanks.
