message 1: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hi everyone! My name is Sheila Hendrix and I just joined the group. I'd like to thank you all for having me. I love to read YA books, even though I am no longer a YA. *sighs* I also have written one that I'd love to get you to read and review for me. It's called The Betrayal and its a paranormal. If you'd like more information or if you're interested, please let me know. I also do book reviews for my blog, http://www.sheilahendrix.blogspot.com/, if you'd like to check it out.

Rute Canhoto (rutecanhoto) Hi, Sheila! I'm a writer, but I do reviews too for my blog http://rutecanhoto.blogspot.com and there I have a page for new authors. Usually, the writers send me a PDF file of their book, I read it, review it and then I interview the author. Next, I post everything both in english and in portuguese, so that it can be available for a wider range of people. Let me know if you're interested in joining my list =)Oh, but it may take me a while to read, once I have a big list of requests, that you can check at the blog page "A Analisar | To Review" ;-)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hey Rute! That sounds great! I'd love for you to. I can send you the manuscript if you'll let me know where to send it.

I was doing reviews for two magazines, myself, but I've been so busy writing I haven't had time. Now, I'd like to start doing reviews for my blog. I've done some but I'd like to do more.

my blog is http://www.sheilahendrix.blogspot.com/

Let me know where to send the manuscript and I'll get to as as soon as I can.

Thanks!
Sheila

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Rute I'm following your blog now and I love the way you've done it even though I have no idea what you're saying in it. LOL!


message 5: by Rute (new)

Rute Canhoto (rutecanhoto) lol! But everything is both in portuguese AND english. If it is a small post, first is in portuguese and right below is in english. If it is an interview (once that's a long post) it is presented in portuguese, but at the beggining of the text you'll find something saying "English version available here" ;-) I'm following your blog now too. the manuscript can be sent to rutecanhoto@iol.pt Thank you!

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Sounds good! I'll get it to you as soon as I get home from work. Thanks!


message 7: by Rute (new)

Rute Canhoto (rutecanhoto) I'm the one to thank! But don't forget it may take me a while. But I honour my commitments and if I say I'll do it, you can count on it ;-)


message 8: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) No problem. Thanks!

Blue (bookishblueuk) | 1 comments Hey Sheila,

I'd be happy to read and review your book for you. I'd make sure to post the review both here and on my blog. And while, it may not look like I have the biggest follower list yet, I have a lot of subscribers and the followers I do have I got in the last two weeks =]

Amber Tesia (ambertesia) | 12 comments Hi Sheila,

Hope you are well. Are you still looking for reviewers? I am interested in reviewing your book (I like paranormal romance)...

Best,

Ria


message 11: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hello Faye, yes that would be great! Just tell me where you'd like me to send the manuscript and I'll get it to you, or, if you prefer, the book is up on Smashwords if you have an ereader. If you want to go that route, I'll give you a coupon for a free book. Just let me know and thanks!. I'm following your blog now. I like it!


message 12: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hi Ria, I love your name. Yes I'm still looking for reviewers. Just let me know where to send the manuscript or I can send you a code for a free ebook on Smashwords. I love paranormal romance myself but my book isn't a romance. Even though I love reading them, I don't think I could write one if I had a gun held at my head. LOL! Hope you still want to read it!


message 13: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Rute, did I ever get my manuscript to you? I can't remember.


message 14: by Amber (new)

Amber Tesia (ambertesia) | 12 comments Hi Sheila,

Thank you for your kind words! I am interested in reading your mss. Please do email it to me (riatesia@yahoo.co.uk). When do you need reviews by? I'm pretty slammed next week (what with doing the final edits of my book), but can start reading and reviewing early Dec? I'm a pretty fast reader anyway, but I totally understand if you need reviewers asap.
Best,

Ria :-)
PS Happy Thanksgiving!


message 15: by Amber (new)

Amber Tesia (ambertesia) | 12 comments PS Sheila, I forgot to mention. If you're into Paranormal romance, would you be interested in reviewing my e-book? Absolutely no worries if not, I just thought I'd ask (I've just posted a new thread asking for reviewers of my paranormal romance novel). Take care!

Best,

Ria :-)


message 16: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hey Ria. I absolutely love paranormal romance and would be honored to read yours. I have a blog I put them on then I intereview the authors. I've even been thinking about doing character interveiws. My email is sheilabes@aol.com, shendrix726499@yahoo.com and my blog is http://sheilahendrix.blogspot.com/.

December would be fine. When you finished the book and done your review, if you'd put it up on smashwords that would be great. It's not on Amazon yet because I'm still working on getting the print book ready but anywhere you can put the reveiw would be great and I'll do the same for you. I'll send mine to you right now. Thanks!

Larry Moniz (larrymoniz) | 98 comments Don't either of you follow what's happening?Yes, let's continue doing fraudulent reviews and totally destroy the EBook industry. Suggest you visit my authors' forum: Published Authors Biz and learn how quid-pro-quo is destroying our business.


message 18: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Larry, thanks for the post but it's not a fraudelent review. I'm asking for people to give their honest opinion of my book. I will do the same for everyone who wants me to review those.

I don't expect a person to give me a rave review simply because I ask them to reveiw my book. There is not a thing in the world wrong with authors asking others to read their books and tell people what they think. If this is destroying the ebub industry then there is something wrong with the industry.


Word of mouth is the one of the best ways to get your stuff out there and recognized.


message 19: by Amber (new)

Amber Tesia (ambertesia) | 12 comments Larry posted an identical comment on another thread so I assumed it was spam. If that isn't the case, FYI Larry, there are no fraudulent reviews going on here. This is a writing community, supporting each other via constructive comments. Feedback is like gold-dust to any writer. If you really want to plug your authors' forum, I suggest you start a new thread.


message 20: by Ey (new)

Ey (eywade) | 6 comments I truly don't believe its spam or a fraudulent thing to swap reviews. Writers happen to be readers with an opinion. I would love reviews on one or all of my books. http://bit.ly/ReviewThis and I am more than willing to do the same for any other author. I post reviews (along with the major places)here http://wade-intobookreviews.blogspot.com and if the books have trailers I post them on my other blog http://wade-inbooktrailers.blogspot.com


message 21: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Hendrix (sheilahendrix) Hi Ey, tell me about your books. What genre do you write? Which ones do you want reviews on. If you decided you want to review mine, let me know and I can send you and email with the manuscript or a code where you can get an ebook from smashwords. In the meantime, here is the trailer for my book.

By the way, thanks for your post. I happen to agree with you. Writers are readers with opinions.
