Hi everyone

I want to review books. Until a bought of bad health bought my reviewing to a temporary standstill I was in the top 500 reviewers list on Amazon.

I have recently started reviewing books again and I am hoping that new authors, especially those with books on Kindle or who have PDF copies of their books will send me a link so I can read their book and review it here on amazon.

You can find me under "Kali Bengaligirl" but you can read my latest review and others if you check out Susanna Quin's book "Glass Geishas"

So if you want me to do a review for your book and I will be honest about what I have read then please contact me via this thread!

I am a eclectic reader, I love fantasy, crime fiction, real life novels, but no genre will be refused as my passion for reading means all books are welcome.

This a genuine offer to review new books as I believe in good self published authors getting good reviews.

I have two books in particular that need reviews. They are paranormal, chick lit style. So, easy reads, but no vampires. Is that a genre that interests you?

"What's Playing at the Roxy?" is a comic novel written by Dr Robert Atkins and available now on Amazon Kindle. Robert is no relation to the diet guru of the same name.

The Roxy is a disused cinema in the red light area of Bordeaux - just the place for a failing church congregation. Howard Jenkins is the young Welshman who has been sent down from Paris to try to turn the situation round with the clock ticking down to closure.

As the deadline approaches, Howard and his homeless sidekicks Pascal and Paquito need to negotiate with a cast of eccentrics. A manipulative, power-crazed wine magnate, his feisty niece and his downtrodden musical daughter all come into the mix, putting Howard into compromising positions at every turn.

Some of the memorable set pieces include a French open-air market, a disastrous concert and a trip to Lourdes while the closing chapter is a cliff-hanger with an unpredictable outcome.

The author is a Welsh Baptist minister who worked for well over ten years in settings like the Roxy so it all comes to life thanks to his in-depth knowledge. Alongside the humour there are many insights into France and the French character.

"When I worked with the homeless in Toulouse," says Robert, "one of my colleagues ran a church using a disused cinema and I realised this was a great setting for some strong characters and ludicrous situations. Similar incidents happened to me but fortunately never in quite the same way."

"What's Playing at the Roxy?" is an exciting, subversive rollercoaster ride and anyone who reads it will enjoy living in this parallel world.

Hi Kali

I have a couple of books that could do with reviews here in the UK. My novels tend to be character-driven and/or voice-driven fiction and a bit quirky or gritty. If this sounds like your kind of thing, please let me know.

Hi Kali! I'm pleased you're feeling better now and once again interested in reading and reviewing.

I recently published my first novel, Precious Moon, on Amazon Kindle. I have a few super reviews on both and .com, but would be delighted if you would consider taking a look at Precious Moon.

The story is set in 1982, in Argentina, during the Dirty War. Two young Brits, an Oxford doctor and a graduate, find themselves living in the same remote Andean village, when the Falklands War breaks out. They are advised to return home, but both refuse to do so. Alex and Katie each have their reasons for choosing to stay in a country torn apart by its own sinister internal war, and which has now become the enemy of their own nation, and there are repercussions to staying. Friendships are strained and tested, beliefs are challenged, their pasts in Kenya and England are revisted.
It is a story of disappearances and displacement, escape and exile, hope and courage.

Thank you!

Wishing you a safe and speedy recovery.

I recently published a novel entitled 'Crossing the Threshold' on Kindle and with Createspace. A supernatural thriller, sSet in 2001, Paul Taylor is forced to leave the cutthroat financial world anddecides to retrain as a village carpenter. Possibly inspired by local superstition, Paul begins to witness events he cannot explain. Named as the perpetator in a violent attack, Paul realises he needs to find the secret of the village and the entity that's following him in order to clear his name...

I would be happy to hear from you at judithraebooks at aol dot com to arrange to send you a copy.

Very best wishes,

This is a genuine offer to review the books of new authors. I love to read and I love to review. All I ask is you send me a copy of your book, kindle or PDF copy, ad I will read, read, read and then review. I will be honest in my review that i promise. I am all for new authors who have chosen to self publish. So send me your books, I will help you and in turn you will help me regain my top reviewer status if possible. Thanks.

You might want to post this in the Meet our Authors forum. Since we have been given a playground, many don't come here anymore, plus people can't help themselves and add links to their books which will automatically result in either, getting the posts deleted, or the whole thread is going to be transferred to the MOA forum anyway.

By the way, you have e-mail. :-)
