Brandy | 64 comments This is the Children's books review group, which will include all types of novels and/or picture books classified as for children. As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the book 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 as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement. The author and reviewer can discuss other sites to post reviews as well -- Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc.

This topic will be updated with the list of authors as they sign up with their names and Goodreads links to their books. First come; first serve. This is an authors only peer review group.

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.

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.

Brandy | 64 comments Just one more to go!


message 10: by Tanja (new)

Tanja Russita | 26 comments Brandy, I wonder if I can ask for review for my other book or, if not, for the book written by other author, but with my illustrations (so I am involved and can't write a review for him, he can't write a review for me, too).
I mean this book: http://www.amazon.com/Granny-Baggy-Ji...


message 11: by Brandy (new)

Brandy | 64 comments You can change books if you would like. However, I think it would be best to submit books that you have written or are at least the primary author. Thanks.

Tanja Russita | 26 comments Thank you! No, I don't want to change, so let's leave my first book in the list.
