I absolutely loved the experience of working with Reader Views. At all times, I truly felt that I was dealing with professionals who had read and appreciated my debut novel, Mistress Suffragette. First-time novelists often don't realize how competitive it is out there. We are presented with a dizzying array of publicity options, so it really helps when you can work with folks who genuinely care about helping your book succeed. The online interview was great, and the podcast was terrific fun. While I write and polish the sequel to my novel, I am keeping my fingers crossed on the award show!
"Working with Reader Views was a very pleasant surprise. My book received honest, positive feedback from the professional reviewer who knew the subject well. I was able to use excerpts from the "tear sheet" for posting on my website and social media sources. I immediately got feedback from contacts and many potential readers in addition to a renewed spike of interest in my humorous golf book from all corners of the U.S. I will use this resource again for my book's sequel, Murder on the Green."

"I must say I am so glad to have participated in First Chapter Plus, Book by Book Publicity, and Reader Views and the Literary Awards program they have. It was such a pleasure working with Sheri on my first live interview, which was my first experience with Reader Views. The interview went fabulous and Sheri made me so comfortable, I was really impressed myself when it was released. The interview was used over and over in my marketing efforts and has been very effective. My placement in First Chapter Plus has exposed me to librarians who are very impressed with my books and I love Susan's wonderful newsletters that are always enlightening with her editorials! She is always teaching me some tidbits that I learn from with each newsletter. I am grateful to Reader Views also for honoring my 3 books in their Literary Awards, adding to my accolades for my award- winning series (12 x thus far), which has been so well received by the industry as well as the public. Reader Views should be part of every author's marketing strategy! Thanks to Susan and Sheri for all your hard work and all those at Reader Views for bringing my characters of Zealy and Whubba into the spotlight! Keep up the great work!"

"I have entered the Reader Views Literary Awards Reviewer’s Choice program each year since I discovered the program in 2012 when The Magic Word won a 2nd place award. This has been followed each consecutive year with Gimme-Jimmy a 2013 HM, Manner-Man a 2014 Gold, My Fingerpaint Masterpiece a 2015 HM, Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! a 2016 HM, and The Golden Rule a 2017 2nd place. I hope that My Little Angel will do as well! The Awards themselves are great for marketing, but the way that this Awards Program is especially meaningful is that they use children to review the books. A child reviewer is very unique, since they evaluate the book’s appeal to actual children…the readers!! Reader Views also provides excellent marketing services in addition to their Awards Program."
