About Readers' Favorite

Company Logo Readers' Favorite is owned and operated by authors for authors. Our staff and nearly all of our 500+ reviewers are authors who have come together to provide their fellow authors with a valuable set of resources to help them succeed.

Authors need feedback and exposure, and we provide this through free quality reviews and a free feature rich review page, the opportunity to obtain recognition through our respected annual book award contest, and free Monthly Book Giveaway, Book Exchange, and Book Donation programs.

Authors also need information and support. To this end we have created an Author's Forum in our Author's Area where authors can communicate with each other, ask questions, and share ideas on writing, marketing, and more. We also provide over 1,000 free articles (coming soon) that we have created to answer questions and guide authors through today's often difficult and changing literary landscape.

In addition, we provide reliable, low cost services authors can afford like professional proofreading for $1 per page. We then throw in super fast and friendly customer support by email and phone to make sure authors get the help they need fast. We truly are looking out for our fellow authors. In fact, we were the first book review company to not post negative reviews and provide authors with constructive criticism instead, which has now become an industry standard. We were also the first to offer Review Exchange and Book Donation programs to help authors receive more reviews and recognition.

Readers' Favorite also tries to help those in need by donating books and income each year to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Authors contribute as well by donating financially via our order forms and donating their books through our Book Donation program where they help schools, hospitals, and charities.

On behalf of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and especially on behalf of the children and their families, we want to thank Readers' Favorite and its authors for your kindness and generosity.

In addition, authors that win our annual book award contest donate copies to be sold at our booth at the Miami Book Fair International, the largest book fair in America. This helps the author gain more exposure and 100% of the proceeds is donated to St. Jude Children's Hospital, as well as any unsold copies. We are the only vendor at the fair who donates all book fair proceeds to charity, which is popular among fairgoers and increases both the money earned for charity and attention for our author's books.

Honoring Excellence Award, BBB AccreditationAs a result, we are proud to say that Readers' Favorite has become the fastest growing book review and award contest site on the Internet. We have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and have received the Best Websites for Authors and Honoring Excellence awards from the Association of Independent Authors. We are also very proud to be fully accredited by the BBB (A+ rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies.

In addition to reviewing for some of the biggest names in the industry, as well as the first time independent author, our award contest features entries by NYT best-sellers and celebrities, and includes an additional giveaway with tens of thousands of dollars in prizes.

Meet some of our 500+ Volunteer Reviewers!

Reviewer CharacterWe are growing by leaps and bounds and need all the qualified reviewers we can get. Although this is a volunteer position, you will be compensated with lots of great free books to read, increasing notoriety and experience as a book reviewer and the knowledge that you are helping authors and readers. You can even earn money and win cash prizes!

I love books and have read extensively. I enjoy almost any type of fiction and I like to share my thoughts and feelings with other readers.

I have written book reviews for other sites and enjoy reviewing for many reasons, one of which is that it gives me the opportunity to read a wider range of books which I might never have discovered otherwise.

Jackie Timmons My name is Jackie Timmons. I am the mother of an adorable toddler and I work in development at a local theatre company. I recently started a blog focusing on my daughter and parenting tips from my mother. My love of reading began as a child when my mother and I would read books together every night. We read together for years - much longer that most kids read with their parents.

This special time with my mom fostered a love of reading that has intensified now that I have my own daughter to read to at night. I have always enjoyed discussing books with others and look forward to helping readers find great books to read through my reviews.
Greg Smith My name is Greg Smith and I have been married to my wife Jamie for thirty wonderful years. We have two grown boys and 5 wonderful grandchildren. I am a retired police officer.

I absolutely love to read, a hobby which I have passed along to my children. I have bookshelves overflowing with books; I could open a bookstore! A dream! I also enjoy crafts and scrapbooking in my spare time.

I mostly review Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult, and Detective Mystery books. I applaud all attempts to create a vetting system so that readers can get some idea of the quality of the book they are considering for purchase, and I think that a good review website is important.
Judith McNaught Hi, my name is Jacqueline. I not only love to write stories that I can share with others, but I love to read other people's stories as well. A story can transport you anywhere you want to go - whether it's back in time or into the future. Sharing stories is not only magical, it's addicting.

I love writing and reading all different kinds of genres including romance, science fiction, and history. I enjoy the works of many new and established authors like Judith McNaught (pictured left). Every story is unique and with endless possibilities. As a reviewer I get to enjoy these stories and provide my fellow authors and their readers with honest feedback through a professional review of their work.
Gail Wickman Hello, my name Gail Wickman and I am a writer and English teacher with an appreciation of the classics and a taste for the unusual. I have loved the adventure of reading since I was a little girl and blame Gertrude Chandler Warner for my obsession with finding an abandoned boxcar to live in.

If reading is one of my favorite things, then telling people about wonderful works they shouldn't miss is another. The opportunity to help an author shape his or her work by hearing a outside view appeals to the teacher in me. The goal after all is for a meeting of minds between writer and reader, and if my reviews can make that happen, I will have succeeded.

Jane Austen Hello, my name is Gretchen and I am currently living, working, reading and knitting in the Great Pacific Northwest. I discovered the love of reading at a very early age. The library has always been a cave of wonders. As a child, I was one of those kids whose Mom always yelled, “Turn off the light and go to bed!” Books are adventure, entertainment and a pleasant distraction. Did I mention you can also learn from them too?

Being a book reviewer blends the joy of books and my favorite past time with the opportunity to discover new authors. My profile photo is one of my favorite authors, Jane Austen.

Geri Rusk My name is Geri Rusk. As a child, I could not wait until I would be able to unlock the magic and mystery of the printed word. Once I started reading, I haven’t looked back. Now as a stay-at-home mother of four children, I have passed on the joy of reading and discovering new adventures to my children. We are voracious readers in this household. I had the opportunity a few years ago to return to college and finish up my Bachelor’s Degree in English.

When I am not reading, I am a typical “soccer mom” as I run my children back and forth between school, band, choir, scouts, karate and church activities.

I keep a review-based blog where I not only review books but I also review family-friendly movies, recipes, products, etc.

Despite or because of all the traveling, I've been reading anything I can get my hands on since the age of three. My first loves are fantasy and science fiction, although I've been known to devour thrillers, historical fantasy and even the bus timetable when I start showing book-withdrawal symptoms.
Aldous Huxley My name is Alex George, but I write under the pen name of Jack Magnus. I love reading and have always enjoyed discussing the books I'm reading with my friends and sharing special favorites with them. Reviewing books seems a logical extension for me.

Jackie Paulson My name is Jackie Paulson. I work in security, have two cats, and I am an avid reader. I have been reviewing for three years and pride myself on reading every word of the books I review. I just cannot get enough words into my head. As long as I have eyes to see, I will read.

Hamilton (pictured left). Although I do not have as much time to read as I once did my passion for books has never dwindled. It was only within the last couple of years that I began to actively review the books I read. Up until then, I shared my love of reading through word of mouth alone.

I have really begun to enjoy writing book reviews. For me, reviewing the books I read is just one more way to share my passion for books with others. As a mother, I want to encourage my daughter to have the same passion.

I love sports, movies, family activities, politics, and of course, reading.

I love reading new authors as I appreciate the time and effort involved to finish a novel, especially people who work on their writing after work and family activities. Writing is a passion, but so is reading - I am passionate about both!
Jacqueline Schertz Hello, my name is Jacqueline and I love to read. My major in college was English Literature and I have always read at a high level. I am from Wisconsin, and am so grateful for the beautiful four seasons that we get up here.

Jean Sasson Ishita is a curious girl with a knack for creativity and has her eyes open for anything unconventional… Blogger, Book Reviewer, Translator, Journalist, Freelancer, Content Creator and lots more. Her favorite authors include Paulo Coelho, Jean Sasson (pictured left), Dale Carnegie, Robin Sharma, Amish Tripati and many more.

My favorite quote is "A Reader Lives A Thousand Lives Before He Dies.The Man Who Never Reads Lives Only One" ~ George R.R. Martin. Loving books is an acquired taste which I want to spread through my book reviews.
