An indie author makes no better investment in their writing projects than to join them. I’m so glad I did; you will be, too!”

Reader Views was an opportunity for me to get my book noticed, and appreciated. This contest was well-managed, clearly defined, and professionally executed. I was proud and honored to highlight my accomplishments with Reader Views in my advertising campaigns.You cannot ask for better from a book award. And if I may add, the review process was fantastic. I appreciated the care my reviewer gave to my book. It was genuine and authentic, written for true readers to get to know my book. Thank you.”

Author of “The Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series”
“I was truly humbled by the honest, heartfelt praise my novel received from Reader Views. My interview was an interesting and enjoyable experience—Sheri has a friendly way of probing, getting an author to open up about himself and his work without realizing he is doing it. I highly recommend Reader Views for any author who is looking for honest feedback about his or her work. 5 stars *****!”
Marcus A. Nannini
Author of “Midnight Flight to Nuremberg”
“Before entering the book contest, I researched Reader Views and was impressed with their web presence and reviews. When the USPS mistakenly sent the hard copies of my properly addressed book submission to the wrong post office, Sheri and Susan diligently tracked it down without raising any questions. Ultimately my book proved to be the Overall Grand Prize Non-Fiction Winner. I would also like to state their book review process was handled expeditiously, and the review was highly professional.”
Author of “Birdwatcher”
“I was grateful that my book, “Birdwatcher,” received two awards, more than what I expected as a first-time participant.”
Author of “Tell Anyone You Want That I Was Here”
A quick note to say how much I enjoyed and appreciate working with you on your review of my book, Tell Anyone You Want That I Was Here.
Unlike a reviewer or two I’ve worked with who seem as if they’ve merely skimmed the book, you brought forth insights that came not only from thorough understanding but deeper analysis. This made the review that much stronger and valuable to me and future readers.
What a positive experience.”
Author of “The Warlock’s Curse”
“I was very happy to have my book, The Warlock’s Curse, selected for the bronze award in the teen category. I highly recommend this competition to any Indie author looking to gain a foothold in the literary world.”
Author of “Gag Me: A Friday Harbor Novel”
“I was thrilled to learn that my mystery novel, Gag Me: A Friday Harbor Novel had placed and further thrilled to learn the story won the mystery category. With Reader Views excellent reputation, the experience, comprehensively, was a delight.”
