Recently, I reviewed the novel Rani of Rampur by Suneeta Misra, and have been hired as the author's publicist. In this vein, I would like to request that authors who contact me for a review, would consider a review swap, to help this new author, and to get her name out there. She also has written a short story, Of King & Queens, if you are interested in a review swap, but do not have the time to devote to a full-length novel.
A couple of points:
- I will not reject your book if you cannot do the review swap. I understand that everyone is busy! However, if you do accept the review swap, please do not refuse at the last minute, because you don't want to make an effort and read the story. There is no deadline for posting your review!
- I guarantee that I will not alter my review based on your review for my client, so please do not be worried about this!
- That being said, the author welcomes honest criticism, but if you cannot publish a review without being overly harsh and unkind, please do not agree to the review swap. Again, I am not someone who will reject your book if I already have agreed to review it, but it reflects very badly on you to not follow through! In these cases, I will finish the work I have agreed to review, but am less inclined to work with you in the future.
- Please mention in your review request if you are interested in a review swap, so I can send you the file.
- When you are finished, please post the review on amazon at least, and on goodreads if you are able to do so.
- I appreciate everyone who has agreed to help my client out by reviewing her work (and she appreciates it as well!) I am looking forward to reading all of your stories, as well.
