This could be your book!
Want significant market impact for your book? Want a "review" that will make readers sit up and TAKE NOTICE?
Readers are hungry for reviews that accurately reflect a book's content! Authors love reviews by readers who actually read and enjoy their sub-genre!
With a RomCon Reader Rated book there are no angry rivals posting unfavorable reviews on public sites. No reviewers who don't normally read romantic suspense rating your romantic suspense novel.
Judges select the categories they love and are randomly assigned your book by a computer program. The judges are pre-screened, researched, monitored, and constantly reviewed for fair and consistent scoring. And the lowest of the six judges' scores is dropped.
We offer all authors, whether they are NYT Bestsellers, Indie Authors, or Self-Published a chance for EQUAL review by a panel of actual READERS!
Any Book. Any Year. Any title. All are eligible for a Reader Rating.
