In joining this review group you have agreed to review the books 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 Story Review Group 5. (Stories must be 20,000 words or less. No restriction on genre.) As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the works assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. Due to changes in how Amazon enforces its policies, it may not be possible to post reviews on Amazon. We encourage participants to post reviews on Amazon, if and where possible. Authors are welcome to request that reviewers post reviews to other venues, as well. Reviewers are welcome to offer to post reviews to other venues, if the subject book is available there.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work or, if the reviewer prefers to give the author a sale, purchase it.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews. Authors may respond to reviews, but any form of harassment or anger directed at reviewers will be treated as a violation of the terms of service for this group.

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.

Please read and adhere to the Code of Conduct at https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments I dont have a short story. I have a collection of them. I have explained this but I think my name got included to make up the numbers. Perhaps someone could review one of the stories from the collection and say in their review that they had not read the whole book--just one story/ Actually many of the stories are short so if the reviewer reads the 20,000 words or less, that could be a review of five or six of the stories or the novella included.

So if I am in my book is https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Authors:

We have enough participants for two groups. I propose the follow groups:

Christopher Keene, Jill Kearney, Francis Mont, J.D. Buffington, K.T. Munson, and Arthur M. Doweyko

Tristen Kozinski, Nadishka Aloysius, Noor Al-Shanti, Ronit Tal Shaltiel, and Robby Charters

If anyone thinks that there would be less conflict switching to another group, let me know.

R.

Authors:

We have two groups. Tristen Kozinski, Nadishka Aloysius, Noor Al-Shant, Ronit Tal Shaltiel, Robby Charters, Rhian Waller, and Lorna Jackie Wilson should make certain to follow the discussion at Short Story Review Group 6, https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Because Lorna is participating with two books, I have put her in each group with a different story.

Let me know about any additional conflicts as soon as possible. I will be generating schedules for both groups in a day or two.

R.

Authors:

The schedule of reviews is published in the initial comment of this topic. If you are assigned a work with more than one short story, you and the author may make any arrangement you like to determine which one you read and review. The schedule starts on Monday so that we have time for anyone to report an error or unresolved conflict.

R.
