Self-Published Spotlight: New Feature

Attention self-published/indie authors: I have a new feature I want to try called Self-Published Spotlight. This is a place, not for reviews, but to highlight your book, give a description, and include buy links. If your book is on sale, newly published, or you want a cover reveal, or for pretty much any reason, contact me and send me the book description, cover art, sale information, or anything else you want included. Self-Published Spotlight can be any day of the week, and the frequency I publish it will depend on how many requests I get. These do not include a review.

Email me at bonniereadsandwrites@gmail.com if you want to be in the spotlight! And share this with any authors you know. Please make the title of your email Self-Published Spotlight.

Review Policy

The most important thing I want to convey is I rate books compared to others of their type. I am not going to compare a light holiday romance to Gone With the Wind, for example. I have different expectations for different genres.

5 STAR Fiction: It was compelling, well-researched, impressively written, and/or entertaining. The characters are memorable and I connected with them emotionally. I will search out this author’s other work

4 STAR Fiction: I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to others. I would definitely want to read more books by this author.

3 STAR Fiction: It was a good book. Although I wasn’t blown away by it, I would recommend it to others.

2 STAR Fiction: I liked some things about the book, but it did not live up to my expectations.

1 STAR Fiction: I did not enjoy the book, and would not recommend it to others. My reasons will be well documented in the review.

If I feel a book is between ratings, I will note that in decimals in the review. A 3.8 would be rounded to 4. A 3.2 would be rounded to 3.
