That is an odd request, why not just review some of the books you have read up to now?

Ok this is a great idea, I am writing a book now and have had some good comments from people who have read the first few chapters but it would be nice to hear from a total stranger. I will email the first few chapters but please keep it in mind that it is not fully edited yet so there might be one or two spelling or puctuation mistakes.

Lorraine - it might be a good idea if you could post a sample of a review that you have already written so that people can see the depth of review that you are likely to give in exchange for a free book.

All In, a thriller already with good reviews, always good to hear anothers opinion.

I agree with Val and RW's suggestions. Why should an author send a free book when they have no idea what they will get in exchange? You haven't posted any reviews on Amazon so it is impossible for them to judge the quality or usefulness of any review that you may write.

'Monk-Son of Kunlun: Book One of the Khalduni Wars Series' by M J Bridger is pretty good, it's the first book as well so there's more to come. I actually think he's just done a second one as well but I've not read that one yet :).

Hi Lorraine,

Are you aware of the 'Goodreads' website? It has a special section in the forum 'Creative Reviews', where readers can volunteer to review writers' books.

http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/565264-here-is-where-the-readers-solicit-authors-to-review

I think if you posted there, you'd probably be bombarded with stuff to look at!

Lorraine Browne is not really serious about reading to review for authors? My experience with her has not been good. So other authors please beware...
She offered to read a novel for me at the end of July, which I sent to her way back in early August. Since then she hasn't replied to ANY of my emails asking how things are going? Just a line from her to say she preferred not to do it would have sufficed. To leave me high and dry without any comment or reply to my emails whatsoever has been very unprofessional.
To any other authors who feel tempted to fall for her requests to read for them... don't be taken in.

Lorraine! I've just put ten novels up on Kindle, two of which have been published in paperback/hardback. I'd send you the ten by email if you stick John McKenzie into the kindle search thing and email me at madyamika2000*yahoo.co.uk
