General Interest

Is there a forum for someone to look at your book and tell you what they think

Is there a way to get feedback from other published blurbarians?

Kathy,

I really like Natalie’s idea and I’d be happy to do this for Natalie and other people (if they reciprocate!), obviously not dozens a week :-)

BUT how do they (or I) make the book available for review. If they upload it and send an e-mail with the link all you get to see are the first 15 pages. Most books, certainly the one I am working on, could not be exported and e-mailed because of the size. So the only way I can think of is to buy a copy and have it dispatched to the reviewer. A (potentially) expensive option. I’d be wanting it reviewed BEFORE I published it.

Any suggestions? Or am I missing something obvious?

........Tony

Add a comments area under under each book displayed.

But how do you get to see all the pages in the book TomM?

some people put all the pictures they have in their book on a website and then post the link to that website in their description of the book.

That will give you an idea of the pictures, but not the whole lay-out and that is important too ofcourse. Maybe make a PDF of the book and put that on their websites??
