Nine Reviewer Openings for Warpaint.

WARPAINT is done, edited, almost ready

Of my original 25 folks who signed up to review Hunting The Corrigan’s Blood, sixteen moved to semi-permanent reviewer status.

Nine dropped out for various reasons (or no given reason).

Which leaves 9 openings for NEW reviewers for WARPAINT, the second Cadence Drake novel.

So here’s the deal

If you’re one of the first nine folks who posts to the page requesting a review copy and explaining why you’d like to do a review, I’ll send you one. It isn’t fancy. It’s a nicely formatted PDF set up to still be readable on e-readers, but it has no cover art or any other frills.

If you volunteer in time, you get to read the story under no obligation to review it.

HOWEVER, obviously I’m sending out copies because I need reviews, which do help sales.

Folks who do a review and send me the link to their review (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Apple, in that order, are my preferred
review venues, but reviews posted to blogs and sites that accept reviews of books also count), in most cases will be invited to get the NEXT book in the series to read and review, as well as other fiction projects I complete.

I say “in most cases,” because I reserve the right to drop folks from the list if they decide to roast the book rather than review it, if they indulge in personal attacks against me, or for unstated reasons that
might come up.

If you ALSO bug-hunt the manuscript for spellos and typos (no editing for style, please), you get a thank you in the Acknowledgements.

Folks who don’t do a review won’t receive the next book, because I’m trying to build up a list of 25 reliable folks who will receive my books and review them.

IMPORTANT: This is strictly volunteer. No money changes hands, and I cannot offer to read your work in exchange for you reading mine, so the only reason to do this is because you’d like to read the book before everyone else (and you might like getting your name in the ACKS).

If you’re interested, let me know (and letting me know WHY would help, too.)

If you have any questions about reviewing, ask them when you post,
and I’ll be happy to explain further.

    Hello Holly,

    I would love to review Warpaint. You mention giving a review on Amazon/kindle. I do not see the book up yet. You also mention doing a bug hunt (which would be cool too), and that this would be an advanced reading.

    I take it that you are saying we should do the review on the various sites when you put it up live. Let me know, I have been waiting to find out what happens to Cady since I finished Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood.

    (How long ’till Warpaint is available on Kindle?) Alan

    Wow, that filled up fast. I shouldn’t be surprised, you have a lot of fans, and everyone loves a good read. I have little time for reading [even my e-mail] but I will read when it will help, like looking over wife and daughter’s college papers for typos and grammar. Having read much trains the eye to find those quickly.

    Hoping that you get the quality reviewers you are looking for.

    I see that you have way more than 9 reviewers submissions already but if anyone drops out, please consider me. I’m a new writer and have taken three of your courses, which really has put me on the road to being a better writer. So I’d like to return the favor and review your books. Not only would it help you but it would help me by allowing me to see how what you’ve taught me can be taken to fruition. Enjoy the holidays and the release of your new book.
