About the review policy...

When we agree to review a book, we plan to review a book.  With that in mind, remember not every book is going to be loved by every reviewer.  If one reviewer is selected to review the book, but feels that the review would be less than stellar, we will offer it to another reviewer on the team.  Since our goal is to help build interest in your work we will never write a bad review.  If we feel we cannot give a good review, you will at least be given an author spotlight for exposure.

    Propositioning him is one of the hardest things she’s ever done;
    One night of pleasure. I’m open to anything. No ties; the text reads.
    It couldn’t be simpler.

    I'm very interested in forwarding you my book for review. I'm due to self-publish on Amazon on 5th july 2014 but any feedback would be so appreciated. You are so right about the 'writing is the easy part' - I'm quicky realising that my book, has to become a business and working on the marketing, social media, etc to promote it. Any suggestions? You can email me at regards, Alex
