Want a Review?
Are you an author and want a review of your fiction book?
Both trade-published and self-published books welcome. All genres welcome.
How does this work?
If you want a review on this site, a mention in the newsletter, and a link on the Motley Facebook Page, follow these steps:
1 -- Fill out the form below in detail. This does NOT sign you up for the newsletter. Do that HERE.
2 -- Wait for me to contact you via email. (I value your privacy and will NEVER spam you or share your information with anyone else.)
3 -- Deliver the book to me. At this time, your book will be placed on the reading/reviewing schedule. If I ever find a book I am not comfortable reading or reviewing for any reason, I will tell you immediately that I will not be able to complete the review.
4 -- When I'm done, I will email you the finished review. This will be 100% honest, but not brutally so. I try to balance what I like and do not like about each book. I will also post it on my site and link to it on the Motley Facebook page.
What Will the Review Include?
The review you get from me will be comprehensive.
It will include an overview of my impression of the book, the characters, the storyline, and the writing.
I will give it a rating out of 5 stars:
- 5 -- Excellent! I would recommend this to anyone. It should be a best seller.
- 4 -- Great book! Enjoyable to read but not quite worthy of awards.
- 3 -- A good read but had some problems that bothered me.
- 2 -- Problems, but could be good if...
- 1 -- Needs a lot of work to become a satisfying book.
This isn't meant to be a critique or give information about what to change or fix. If you want that type of service, go to Motley Book Services and hire me to do a professional beta read or content edit.
Each review will have one short blurb you can use as a review on your website, social media, etc. It will also have a longer, more thorough and more detailed review of at least 300 words.
Next Available Review Time
The next review request will be scheduled for:
Read This First!
By submitting this form, you agree to provide a copy of the story to me to review. This can be a finished manuscript, advance reader copy (ARC), or finished book.
You also agree to allow me to review the book and post the review on this site and Amazon and/or Goodreads if possible and based on the boxes you check.
I make every effort to balance good and bad in my reviews, but please understand the reviews are 100% honest. I will not give you a positive review if you ask, demand, or attempt to bribe me.
Reviews are given on a first-come, first-served basis. You will receive the scheduled week for your book review when I get back to you after form submission.
You reserve the right to tell me NOT to review or post the review at any time prior to posting it, or to ask me to remove the review from my site only afterward.
If you agree with above, type "I Agree" and submit the form.
