Greetings,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but does anyone know good places to have your book professionally reviewed? I have a review pending with Kirkus, but I'd like a couple of other options too. If it makes a difference, the book is titled "Write With Your Speaking Voice," so it's a non-fiction book that teaches how to write.

Thank you.

The blurb on the US site has a spelling mistake:

Learn to capture your speaking voice and transfer it to the writtn word.

Yes, it's write / wrote / written.

A similar verb is mite / mote / mitten.

(Yes, I'm in a weird mood today.)

To the O.P.:

You might be able to find some indie review sites using this link:

How many sales such reviews will generate is up for debate.

Thank you. I'll check out the link.

Oh, and being in a weird mood from time to time is what keeps most of us going!

I’ve got bad news. It’s been two days I’m going through review blogs and sites, and only 1 out of 50 bloggers currently accepts review requests from indies. None of them accepts requests for non-fiction.
I miss the 2012. Things were much easier then.
