You’ve found Rabbit Hole Reviews, a home for small press and self-published authors to get a fair review of their book. More than 300,000 new books and editions of existing books were published in 2012 alone. They can’t all get reviews. Authors who publish with a New York publisher can hope for a review from the New York Times Book Review. Small presses can’t.
The reason I know this (and my reason for starting this review spot) is because I’m an author. I also own a micro-press. I have three published novels. And believe me, I fight to get book reviews. I fight to market my books.
Book reviews don’t automatically sell books, but a good review is a useful marketing tool. I will probably share my marketing ideas with you sometime down the road. (Not every blog entry will highlight a book.) But book reviews will be the focus.
If you run a small press, or you self-publish, consider clicking on the “Get Reviewed” link. I don’t charge for reviews. I don’t sell review copies (they will be donated to the local library).
Some of the writers that I review will be friends. No surprise. Writers have writer friends, and they write great books that not everyone knows about. But you don’t have to be a friend to submit your print book or eBook.
And for you readers out there, keep checking back. There’s nothing better than finding an unknown author writing well-crafted fiction. You won’t have to look far for your next great read!
