I would love to have some reviews for my memoir "All Eyes" so do you know of any independent reviewers who would post on Amazon and other websites? I'd be glad to pay a fee as long as it is not over $75. Free is even better! And have you used Kirkus Reviews? Someone suggested it but it costs more than a Trek bicycle. Is Kirkus worth it? I'd appreciate your thoughts/suggestions on getting a book review. Thanks!

Seems like you're really into promotion, maybe ought to be showing others how to do it. Sorry about the reviews dropping off.
I'm from the Peninsula, myself, originally, but write crime/mystery fiction, as well as literary. Is there a particular method of promoting you've found advantageous to you?
Hello Bainy. My name is Fernando Sobenes and I want to invite you to read the prologue and the first two chapters of my novel: "The Evil Visitor" in my blog The Evil Visitor
Also you can watch the book trailer.
Thanks for the warm friend invite. Great to meet and learn from you.
Enjoy your day.
I periodically log onto this site. However, I am pleased to have you as a "Book Marketing" network friend.
Thanks for the invitation, Bainy! In response to your questions on book reviews, check with your publisher as most publishers say not to pay for book reviews, especailly if the pubisher is large enough to send the book out for professional reviews. I do pre-released book reviews for readertoreader and the NewYork Journal of Books-but don't get paid yet. Anyone who has read your book can post a review on Amazon. There are reviewers posting on almost all the sites-check out Cold Coffee Cafe, iFOGO, and any others you know and you'll see them there. I think what Kirkus charges is outrageous. Library Joural is supposed to be good but most libraries want your pfd galley of your book before publishing and won't accept it afterwards--something I found out too late. I got my best reviews from newspapers in towns I lived in throughout my life and they are free--also have a large readership. BTW, I had a memoir publised too--small press. You need a few good reviews from places like that and magazines as most independant reviewers are like me--writers who enjoy reviewing books. That said, if you can't find anyone and can send me your book and aren't in a huge hurry, I can alwaqys review your book with my qualifications as author, journalist and magazine writer. Good Luck!!
Happy New Year,
Thanks for the friend request. I blog on this site but haven't kept up my Tuesday post lately. Working on a new book. Lots of interesting groups on this site. Hopefully they will help
