Hi, I’m Ann Shannon, the Manic Writer. I’m passionate about Indie Authors and they are the focus of my blog. If you are an Indie author and you’d like an honest review contact me.
(I have reviewed and featured non-indie authors in the past but moving forward this will change. I have commitments to a few small press authors that I will honor, after that my focus will be solely on Indie Authors.)
My submission guidelines are easy. You’re book must be indie published. If you are a hybrid author, that’s fine but I will only post reviews for your indie books on The Manic Writer. I will read any genre other than horror, extreme suspense, war, or anything that involves extreme violence. If you aren’t sure, just ask. I write romance and erotic romance, but I read many other genres. Look around and see what books I’ve reviewed for examples.
I will accept ARC’s or review copies by email after I have agreed to review your book. Before you send me your book I will agree to a review date so you know when to expect your review to be published. If you have a new release coming out we can discuss dates so I can be a part of your launch team. My goal is to support you as an Indie author.
There is no charge, or other requirement to be reviewed on my site. If you choose to follow me, or otherwise support me I will be honored, but it is not expected.
My review will always be honest, but kind. That means that I will post the points I loved about your book and also the places I felt it needed development, if I found any. I am willing to offer you a preview of my review a few days before it goes public but it is only for your perusal, not for you to offer revision suggestions. My rating system can be viewed here.
