6 Places Indie Authors Can Get Their Books Reviewed
Amidst all the uncertainties of the digital publishing revolution, one thing is known: indie authors and independent eBooks are here to stay.
That’s a good thing if you’re an indie author or an avid reader. The prices go down for the buyer, yet writers keep a higher percentage of sales; supply and options widen, yet authors always have access to the marketplace.
According to a story by David Vinjamuri in Forbes called Publishing is Broken, We’re Drowning in Indie Books – And That’s a Good Thing (which I highly recommend you read), the only problem with the glut of available books is we’re “drowning in bad writing.”
Or more to the point – there is no trusted big daddy review-site for books.
We’ve got Rotten Tomatoes for films and Pitchfork for music, but no place to turn to when we want to get the definitive overview (is that
an oxymoron?) of a book’s critical reception.
Here are a few places you can turn to in the meantime to get your books reviewed (and one of these sites may just develop into the kind of review-data powerhouse the publishing industry needs).
2. Digital Book Today
3. Self-Publishing Review
5. Indie B.R.A.G.
6. BlueInk Review
