Promoting great reviews:
We celebrate great reviewing! Check out our Book of the Day on Twitter and Instagram. Send us a link to a great review and we will try to include it.
You need a book review? Tell us about your book. There are too many books out there to review all of them, but if we take it on, we review without charge and feed back to you. If we think it merits 4 or 5 stars, we post on Amazon and Goodreads and publicize through this website and our social media accounts.
We prioritize reviews for authors who also support other authors by reviewing their books. We will always prioritize books by authors who contribute to our tours, or whose reviews we feature on our Book of the Day.
We never charge for reading or reviewing a book or posting our review. Our reviews are always honest. We work within Amazon guidelines. For more info about how we work, click here.
We only tour books that we have read, admire, and believe our panel of reviewers will also enjoy.
We have several years of experience running book tours (see our journey”) and if we take on a book to tour, we work tirelessly to ensure that the tour is a success and meets the author’s objectives. See our page “Contacts, Admin, Policies” for information about how we select books for our tours, how we work, and a relevant contact form.
We charge $120 for arranging a 4 day tour, aiming for at least 12 reviews. All fees are donated to The Paul Hodges Trust, a charity that works with African communities to empower women and girls through education and employment. Tours are a labour of love. We cover our own costs.
We can only be undertake a small number of tours.
Editing and proofing:
We can proofread and/or copy edit your book to a professional standard at a fraction of commercial prices. References from authors and publishers we have worked with are available on request.
- For proofing a book of up to 120K words we charge $120. Copy editing and other editorial work by agreement.
- All editing fees are donated to The Paul Hodges Trust, a charity that works with African communities to empower women and girls through education and employment.
We include a brief promotional animation with each book tour (see examples on our book tour pages)
We can produce similar promotional animations outside of tours, for use on your social media pages etc, or longer videos featuring key plot elements.
- Charges depend on the complexity of the work involved. For an 40 – 60 second animation, we charge $70.
- All fees for graphics work are donated to The Paul Hodges Trust, a charity that works with African communities to empower women and girls through education and employment.
We have created a small fund for sending (new, Amazon) paperbacks as gifts to prisoners in USA and UK, and to their children.
If you have a loved one in prison who would like a book, tell us what sort of books they like and we will try to assist.
All of our takings (we cover our own costs) are donated to our partners at The Paul Hodges Trust, as a contribution to the Joan Davis Scholarship Fund, which works with local partners in Sierra Leone and Kenya, to enable girls from the poorest backgrounds to attend school or higher education.
