AUTHORS, DO YOU WANT AN HONEST BOOK REVIEW? OR READERS, ARE YOU TIRED OF 5 STAR BOOK REVIEWS WITH ZERO MEANING?
If you direct message me on twitter, I’ll review the first 1000 words of your story and rate on a scale of one through ten how well the story brought me in. I’ll post the cover of your book on the blog and answer if I would personally keep reading. Seperately, I will rate it one a scale of zero to five Happy Go-Lucky Red Pandas. To give readers a comparison with all the works reviewed, I’ll post a rolling Panda Average. If most books get 3/5 and yours gets 4/5, then good on you. This won’t be a place where 99% are 5 star glowing BS reviews with zero credibility. Most people in a book store or amazon will preview only the first couple pages before deciding to buy. I aim to help in this effort.
Average as of 22 April 16 (Out of 7 Reviews): 3.0/5.0
Totals:(21 Red Pandas out of 35 possible)
The story must be published at least an an e-book. My blog will be pump free. If you want me to review the first 1000 words, you will meet the fate of the Happy Go-Lucky Red Pandas.
An example of the review is this:
1000 WORD REVIEW: THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA – Ernest Hemingway
The book opens masterfully, giving me both the plot in the very first line. The story is of Santiago who has gone eighty-four days without catching a fish. Only a boy, a former apprentice, cares enough to look after the old man. The boy loves him enough to bring him food and ensure he is rested for the lucky fishing excursion that is sure to come.
Overall Opinion (Would I want to keep reading the rest of the story?)
I would definitely keep reading on.
Story Opening Rating: 5/5 Happy Go-Lucky Red Pandas
