Reader’s Favorite is one of the best affordable websites in the world. In my opinion, it is THE best; they even offer FREE Editorial Reviews with all the publicity advantages you’d receive if you’d paid. – Submission tips to follow – watch this website!
Express Packages of three or five reviews, depending on your budget, do mean if your book is rated 4 or 5 stars, you can have the badge on your book and an Editorial Review, or quotes from more than one, on Amazon in less than a month, guaranteed. Note – 2 or 3-star reviews are never published, and whether a 4 star is, is your choice. If you have only one 5-star review, you can download 5-star badges for your eBook and paperback, and still take good quotes from a 4-star review, provided you don’t claim it is 5 stars – just quote.
Readers’ Favorite run an annual contest for over 140 genres of book. Non-fiction – anything from cookery, Christian life-guides, to memoirs. Fiction – novels, novellas, and short stories – romance – thrillers – dystopian – historical… Children’s books from Pre-school to Teen and YA, and Poetry.
Every entrant receives a free review, assuming they don’t already have one, and a vast amount of worldwide publicity.
Winners, gold, silver, bronze, honourable mention or finalist, gain even more. Below is a copy of the email I received for my Contemporary Romance book award this year.
