Debra Gaynor



Debra Gaynor

Readers' Favorite was founded by Debra Gaynor to provide readers and authors with a resource for free quality reviews and to offer authors the opportunity to obtain more recognition and exposure through a respected annual book award contest.

Debra's love for reading started as a child and led her to become a librarian for a local college and public school system. She then spent several years as a reading coach for children and quickly realized what a dramatic difference the right book made. A good book not only educated children, but made them want to pick up another. This applies to adults as well. The more good books we read, the more good books we want to read.

In 2002 Debra started reviewing for online companies to help authors with meaningful reviews and to help readers pick books that would foster their love of reading. In 2005 she began reviewing full time and started her own online review company, which was later transformed into Readers' Favorite; a comprehensive and easy-to-use hub for authors and readers. Over the years she has earned the respect of such industry giants as Random House, Penguin, and Harper Collins, as well as the gratitude of thousands of authors. She has also been a judge for several book award contests and has a weekly book review column in her local newspaper.


"I hope you enjoy our site, and best of luck to all the authors in our Award Contest!"

I am a "Jack of all trades" when it comes to my book reviews. I have reviewed books from children's yoga to travel biographies. As a mom, my interests cover a wide array of topics, and I enjoy reading and reviewing on those topics to help authors and readers alike.

Adam Tilsley Hello, my name is Adam and I have a Bachelor's Degree in International Affairs. During my college years, I worked as a radio personality and hosted a music show and a sports talk show. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities and learning about new things.

As a result I enjoy reading a wide variety of genres and have loved reading great books since I was a child.
   
Alexander Rigby Alexander Rigby has been writing since the age of nine. These written works have ranged from stories about witches and warlocks, to magical trees, sagas set in outer space, adventures of freshmen in high school, and a tale of two gay best friends struggling with life in the city. When he was young, his parents used to punish him by taking away his books, as they were the things he loved the most.

Now, as a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Alexander has finished writing his first novel "The Second Chances of Priam Wood." Alexander enjoys book reviewing because the process helps him improve as an author, while at the same time he is able to help other authors and their readers. You can learn more about him at his website.
   
Alexandra Leifschutz My name is Alexandra Leifschutz and I love to read both fiction and non-fiction books. Historical novels are one favorite, biography another. Professionally I am the Director of Fitness for a vegan spa on the beach in south Florida.

Teachers edify, criticize constructively and truthfully, and the same can be said about reviewers.

Alix Heintzman Alix recently got her MA in History at the University of Vermont, and has circled back to her Old Kentucky Home with her partner Nick Stiner. She spends her time desperately repairing their newly-purchased home, reading fantasy books, throwing a frisbee for their neurotic border collie, and trying to cook authentic Mexican food, while she makes a hilariously small amount of money writing high school history curriculum.

She’s dipping her toes into the book reviewing world to sharpen her writing skills and also not-incidentally talk about the books she loves. And to spare her partner from endless reenactments of plot details in books he hasn’t read. You can read more about her and the books she has reviewed on her blog.

I Also enjoy anything by Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Laurell K. Hamilton and anything that is written along those lines.

Barbara Garcia Hello, my name is Barbara. I've been a writer for almost 30 years, but only recently began publishing my novels.

I love to read, and am constantly amazed by the rich imaginations and creations of so many authors.

I enjoy most genres, though I am particularly drawn to historical and modern romances--especially those with a twist. But, like most people, it really depends on my mood. Psychological thrillers and crime dramas are a good second choice for me, followed by dystopian and sci-fi.

I started doing reviews a while ago for my blog on Nonprofit Technology and Social Media, then started reviewing for other sites as well. Since my interests and sources of books are varied, I started a separate site just for reviews called Love to Read.

Obviously, no one is the final authority on which book is a good one. If you don't like the reviews you're coming across, consider reading the book anyway. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Wen Lung

Hi I'm Wen. As a child, my Mother read bedtime stories to me before she tucked me into bed, so my first experience with books was definitely very enchanting. I enjoy reading a wide genre of books, from Romance novels to Business and Finance related texts. I really like how one book can change the way you see things - one book can change your life.

Before I invest my time into a book, I'd often browse through various reviews. I believe that a review is not only beneficial for readers but also for the authors to receive invaluable constructive feedback.
