(Update 02/25/17: You can see the books that I am currently reading for reviews here. As always, if you have a short story or novella that you would like reviewed, I can always squeeze them in.
I am constantly doing Book Promotions. If you would like for me to do one for you, I would just need a media kit. See below for details. Thank you ~Lori~)
I do not charge for Book Promotions. It gives me great pleasure to promote fellow authors’ work. If you have an upcoming book release or a book already out, and you would like me to promote it for you, leave me a message in comments, or email me at ravynehawke(at)gmail(dot)com (I am sure you know how to convert that to a real email address, right? I thought so.)
For a Book Promotion, I would need a media kit. The kit should include the follow:
- photo of the book’s cover
- photo of the author
- book blurb or ‘about the book’
- a sample chapter of the book (if you want that included)
- an author’s bio
- release date of the book (if necessary)
- where to purchase/pre-order (URL) – Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc.
- any social media sites where the author can be contacted – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads, LinkedIn, etc.
- the author’s personal and/or professional website/blog
- any other information you may want to include – a video premiere of the book, a few pre-release reviews or other reviews if applicable, release party information, etc.
If you do not have a media kit ready, I can piece together something for the Book Promotion for you using the above information if I can find it on a blog or social media site.
I do not charge for Book Reviews.
Book Reviews are also a passion of mine. I am an avid reader and have a huge stack of books to read on my desk as well as saved on my Kindle. If asked, I will do book reviews to help out authors who aren’t on my immediate reading lists. Most of the time, these authors will send me a free copy of their book for an honest and fair review. And my reviews are honest and fair. If I don’t like a book for whatever reason, I will say so in the review. If I see technical issues (grammar, use of tags, etc.), I will say so in my review. I am not a harsh critic unless the work is just too ghastly to consume and even then, I try to find something about a book that I enjoyed. I have no desire to tear down a fellow writer.
If you would like for me to review your book, please leave a message in comments or email me at the address given above. It takes me one to two weeks to read, take notes and write a review. I give myself that wide a window because I get ill fairly often due to a suppressed immune system.
I will review any genre, but my favorites are thrillers, mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, horror, paranormal and poetry. If you ask me to review a contemporary romance, I will, but please note, it is not a favorite genre. I do enjoy historical and Gothic romances. Yes, I do review children’s and YA books too. I have not reviewed any non-fiction books lately, but I am willing to do so. In non-fiction, I enjoy biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, history, art, self-help, spirituality and politics. I am weak in Maths and most Science subjects and would probably not do your book justice if I were to review it.
If you’d like me to review your book, you can either send me a free copy, or direct me to a low-priced copy (I rarely pay more than $3.99 for a Kindle copy). I will inform you of an approximate date for the review to appear, determined on my current work-load. I leave reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords and on this blog.
Note: I do have an extensive list of books that I am currently reviewing. Since I get ill a lot, it sometimes takes me a while to get around to reading. Please be patient. I *will* get your book(s) read and reviewed.
