REVIEWS SELL BOOKS. Reviews make a book stand out. We can help each other by
posting (five star) reviews at Amazon.com, B&N.com, BooksAMillion.com and other web
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REVIEW BOOKS in your area of interest/expertise, contact
the listing publisher directly with your Postal address. Do not send your request to Para
Publishing. Please award the book at least four stars or decline to review it. A review
with fewer stars is harmful to sales. The book you receive is yours to keep. If you agree
to review a book and receive it from the author, please let him/her know that you have
and that you will contact them again after you complete your review.
IF YOU WANT YOUR BOOK REVIEWED on Amazon.com, B&N.com, etc, list it here in
Publishing Poynters Marketplace (no charge). You must be willing to send a book and
promotional materials (review-book package) to readers of Publishing Poynters
Marketplace who contact you (usually 5 to 10 copies). Include the number of pages in
your description and for children’s books, list the age level for which the book is written.
Make sure the book is already listed at Amazon.com.
Just send your request and description to DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com
Draft your request so that I do not have to edit it. Make it SHORT (100 words max), no
italics or bold type. Just describe the book in a few words; don’t send a lengthy review
of it. Lengthy submissions will be returned for rewriting or ruthlessly cut. Reviewers only
need enough information to see if they have expertise and an interest in your category.
Supply full contact information including your email address. Write the draft as it should
appear so that I do not have to do more than Copy\Paste. Put “Review Wanted” in the
