Would You Like To Review Books for Free?

Standard

I’ve just subscribed to Book Crash – click here. They’ve shipped my “free” book as I write. Yes, I said free.

This site is for Christian writers to promote their books and for writers, and readers to offer a review. There is one catch. In exchange for free books, I love that word “free”, you must be candid, and follow the guidelines set out below.

Overview – In exchange for “free” books.
• To inform readers why you liked or didn’t like the book.
• Each review should be at least 200 words, but no longer than 500 words.
• Respect the author. In other words, don’t kill the messenger. The writers’ journey is arduous and long. I respect any author with the tenacity to finish what they’ve started.
• What is the theme, plot or subject matter?
• Who is the target audience?
• What is the purpose of the book?
• Was the book engaging, predictable, far-fetched, exciting, and/or   romantic?
• Did the plot hold together?
• Were the characters believable?
• Was the dialog realistic?
• Did the book provide a wholesome Christian viewpoint?
• Was the design appealing? (font, artwork, etc.)
• Was the book uplifting, inspiring?
• Were you challenged in your faith?
• Would you recommend this book? If so, to whom and why.

It appears I have my work cut-out for me. Not only will the reviews help authors to promote their books, it will also help me address those same questions in my writing.

Let me know if any of you sign up to review books. There are also Blogging for Books, click here. and Book Sneeze, click here. I’m sure there are others, but I’ll leave you to troll the web.

Happy Reading!

About Tracy Campbell

Tracy Campbell is a published artist of calendars, wrapping paper, and gift cards, and as an author of how-to-paint magazine articles, her happy heart sings again sharing the work of her hands through "Calm Coloring: Faith, Hope & Love (Art and Soul Therapy for Kids-At-Heart)". When Tracy's not writing, she loves to sharpen pencils, flip open paint lids, and yank off marker caps to create whimsical works of art just for ewe. Customers say her art is sweet and so warm the designs might leap off the page and land right in your heart. She lives with her supportive hubby and fur baby in Wasaga Beach (the Canadian tourist town known for having the longest freshwater beach in the world). Tracy is also a rare breed dog owner, motorcycle momma, a sinner saved by grace, and a collector of roosters and sheep (thankfully, not live ones).
