Midwest Book Reviews sheds light on how authors should get reviews
Recently, Pam Daniels (author of Robert LeBlanc’s book “Silent Drums” [my Wordpress review]) mentioned submission to Midwest Book Review, and I thought I would pass along the site.
My own immediate reaction is that my most recent book is already four years old (from early 2014), and the first is over twenty years old. But I would consider working with a review company in advance of the novel I plan for this year.
The site (the company is located in Wisconsin) is set up in old-fashioned way, with frames, and links to a lot of articles with somewhat repetitious content. My own older sites were set up this way.
The site has a low opinion of some of the self-publishing companies and of vanity publishing in general, and says it prefers small presses (which tend to stress local and iconic topics, or specialized writing like poetry). But it also says you can apply to work for them as a book reviewer.
