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!

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.

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 am excited to review for Readers Favorite so I can help authors as well as hone my own writing skills. I keep a review-based blog where I not only review books but I also review family-friendly movies, recipes, products, etc.

As an author I know the value of honest feedback and am proud to be able to provide reviews for my fellow authors and their readers. I also post my reviews on Goodreads and my blog.
Gaynor Lincoln Hello, my name is Gaynor and I live in New Zealand. I have been a primary (elementary) school teacher for over 35 years. I love teaching and particularly enjoy working with Grade 5 to 7 students. In 2012 I took a writing course to improve my writing, and wrote two novels as a result. I'm aware of novel structure, correct grammar, plot development and characterization.

I have a variety of hobbies including walking, quilting, helping out with a youth group and I am an avid reader. I enjoy many genres, including Christian fiction and non-fiction, historical mysteries, dystopian fiction and some fantasy novels.
George L. Duncan My name is George and I'm a retired newspaperman. For more than 35 years I was a reporter, editor and editorial writer for a variety of newspapers. Today I am an author and have just completed my second novel, "At Play in the Seas of the Lord."

I am an avid reader and combined with my love for writing makes book reviewing a natural choice and an excellent hobby. You can learn more about me on my blog.
David Eddings Hello, my name is Genice. My dad taught me to read, so I grew up reading and have always loved books. I am a fan of many genres and authors, but my favorite author is David Eddings (pictured left).

I believe reviews are important for a couple of reasons: as a reader I like hearing what others think of books because it helps me select books to read and, as a writer, I like hearing feedback to help me grow.
Gloria Antypowich Gloria Antypowich is an indie author who loves to read. She personally writes contemporary, adult romantic fiction, but she reads a wide variety of genres. Interpersonal human relationships fascinate her and she try's to infuse her observations into her writing.

She understands how important honest reviews are for an author's work and posts her reviews on her website, Goodreads, World Literary Cafe and Facebook to provide more advertising for the author. You can learn more about her on her website or Facebook page.

Gigi Murfitt My name is Gigi Murfitt. I am a wife and the proud mother of two adult sons. They both give me plenty of material to write about. I am the President of the Northwest Christian Writer's Association and I also serve as Finance Director for our family nonprofit organization, Gabriel's Foundation of HOPE, where we serve families dealing with disabilities.

As a published author, I know how difficult it is to write and get published. So I am excited to be able to review and encourage other authors. You can learn more about me on my blog and on Facebook.
Erin Shepherd My name is Erin and I am married to the most wonderful man imaginable, Cody, a youth minister in Kentucky. Reading is one of my favorite pastimes and I love keeping up with the fresh, new releases. All too often my husband, pets and my house get neglected because I'm in the middle of a good book.

My favorite genre is Christian Fiction, whose purpose I believe is to uplift and encourage. Readers Favorite has a very large selection of Christian Fiction and by reviewing this genre I can help readers enrich their lives through these quality Christian stories.
Elise Towner Hi my name is Elise. My husband and I are proud parents of five adult children, so reading various books has always been an enjoyable pastime with my family. Now that I'm nearing my retirement years from the banking industry, I've picked up a few extra hobbies that allow me to give back to the community.

Books allow me to visualize different perspectives, increase my knowledge, and travel through the author's eyes. As a published author, I understand the importance of an honest and fair review, especially for independents like myself. You can learn more about me on my blog.
J.K. Rowling Hello, my name is Emma. I'm a 25 year old stay at home Mum of 3, who lives just out of Melbourne, Australia. I've loved reading since I was little, and have a big problem with not being able to put books down and get other things done! I don't have a favorite book genre as such, I just really enjoy reading and it can be anything from a recipe book one day to erotica the next.

One of my favorite authors is J.K. Rowling (pictured left). Outside of reading and parenting, I'm also a photographer - I adore nature, and I'm absolutely crazy about birds!

After finishing college I decided what I really wanted to to was stay at home with my boys, so with my husband's support I am now a full time stay-at-home mom.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and review books. I have always loved reading and enjoy giving back to new and established authors.
Evangeline Han Hi, my name is Evangeline. I am a piano teacher currently residing in Malaysia. I have been reviewing books since 2010.

Reading isn't just a pastime for me, but it is also where I draw my inspiration from. You can learn more about me on my book blog.

J.K. Rowling Hello, my name is Gisela and I was born to read. That is what I tell people when they ask me what I like the most. I have been an avid reader for most of my life. I am also a writer and work as a freelance editor and proofreader. I enjoy many genres and authors, both new and established. One of my favorite authors is J.K. Rowling (pictured left).

I frequently refer to book reviews before purchasing a book or even selecting one from the library, of which I am a regular patron. So being a book reviewer is perfect for me. I love giving back and providing helpful feedback and information to authors and their readers.

My degree in Psychology helps me in understanding the individual learning needs of each child. As a teacher, I recognize that reading books for pleasure is an important part of children's overall learning experience.

My primary goal as a book reviewer is to read new books which I can recommend to my students. Being a reviewer also helps me enhance my writing skills.
Faridah Nassozi Hello, my name is Faridah. I am, a freelance writer with over six years experience, and an avid reader.

I enjoy any well written book but Drama and Crime are my favorite genres. My reviews are always honest and insightful, helping readers to easily make a choice when looking for a good book to read.
Gemma Benton Hello, my name is Gemma. I am a traditional Native American singer, speaker, activist, intuitive and author. From the stage and in my writing, I share stories and wisdom gathered during my twenty seven years of working in Native American and indigenous communities.

I love being a reviewer because I am an avid reader, I enjoy helping other writers, and because reviewing helps me improve my own writing.

Erik Yount Hello, my name is Erik. I was born to an unlikely converging of German and French ancestry, and grew up in an old Victorian house next to a giant graveyard hemmed by woods. My youth was spent – rather than tarrying with 'friends' playing sports – waking up at dawn with pencil in hand, locking the door, hopping to my desk which looked out the window through trees and over fields, and drawing for most of the day.

If I wasn't drawing I was reading, both are passions I still have to this day. I am proud to be able to provide honest reviews to authors and their readers.
Fred Phillips Hello, my name is Fred. I am a husband, father, small business owner, freelance writer, and now novelist. I love to read all genres - especially mystery, detective, literary fiction, sci-fi, and nonfiction current events and history. 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!
Elise Abram Hello, my name is Elise, teacher of English and Computer Studies by day, wife and mother by night and author whenever I can steal some time. I am the proud author of Phase ShiftThe Mummy Wore Combat Boots, andThrowaway Child. I also pen a blog about literature, popular culture and the human condition whenever the muse moves me.

Gary Stout Hello, my name is Gary. I have a Bachelor's degree in Literature and have spent a lifetime reading everything from the classics to action/adventures, graphic novels, suspense, thriller, and western with satisfying stops everywhere in between. I am also the author of three fictional novels (soon to be four): Words, Arrested Innocence, and Serial Samaritan. I've worked hard and played harder and enjoy inserting bits of my own adventures in my novels.

I have also been fortunate to work with other authors, providing them with proofreading and editing services. I enjoy surfing the leading edge of the industry and reading the works of first-time authors who have something to say and share.

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.
Emilija Ryks Hello, my name is Emilija. I am an author, painter, happy devourer of books and collector of weird information. I enjoy reading books and escaping into another world for a while. I was depressed for the greater part of my youth and my best companions were my faith and my books. I live in Canada with my husband, two dogs and a rabbit and currently work as a massage therapist while authoring my next book.

I have a sharp eye for fantasy--anything Jane Austin inspired--and science fiction. I greatly enjoy helping other authors fine tune their work and gain a larger audience through honest and fair reviews. You can learn more about me on my website.

On a more serious note, she has a bachelor's degree in management/accounting and over twenty years experience as an author, freelance writer, ghostwriter and editor. Her favorite genres include pretty much anything in the fiction realm.

Character development is so important to me. I've been on the receiving end of two wonderful Readers' Favorite reviews. Now I would love to pay it forward and help other authors!
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Hello, my name is Ellen and I am a criminal justice professor living in Florida. I’m a life-long bookworm and read hundreds of books each year. Whenever I finish a new book, I love telling others about it. Reviewing allows me to share my passion for reading with others and help them find books that they might not otherwise discover.

I enjoy a wide variety of genres, particularly mysteries, science fiction, and fantasy novels. I also enjoy reading non-fiction (and writing it – I’ve written three books and dozens of journal articles) and books for children, since I’ve got two kids of my own. I am a life-long Sherlock Holmes fan, so Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (pictured left) is one of my favorite authors.

Esther Talley My name is Esther Talley, and I have always loved to read. As a child I read anything I could get my hands on, even encyclopedias. Books were a wonderful companion--always faithful, entertaining and could even transport me back in time. I've read the classics, the best sellers, the obscure, fiction and non-fiction.

My husband and I have been married 19 years and we have four delightful children ages 8 to 17. As I have read to them and helped them select books to read I've rediscovered some wonderful books from my childhood and have been exposed to some great new authors. Reading is a way of life for me and I am always looking for another good book to read, and now to review.
Fiona Ingram My name is Fiona Ingram, I grew up surrounded by books so reading came naturally to me and I developed a love for them from an early age. Life took me into theater studies and then journalism, and then into writing for children. My first book "The Secret of the Sacred Scarab," was a winner in the 2009 Readers Favorite Awards. I then realized just how important book reviews are for authors and decided I would volunteer for the Readers Favorite review team.

I read widely on almost any topic and look forward to being of service to other authors. I live in South Africa where illiteracy is a huge problem, so I hope my small contribution will make a difference. You can learn more about me on my website or on Facebook.
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.
Gordon A. Long Hello, my name is Gordon. I have a BA in English and an MA in Dramatic Literature. I am a retired English teacher, working as a theatre director in the Vancouver area. I also review books on my website, Renaissance Writer, which has been visited 30,000 times this year. I have four self-published books: three fantasy, one humorous social commentary.

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.
George McVey George McVey always wanted to be a Superhero, sadly no radioactive storms or animals have been a part of his life. Instead he figured he could help people by becoming a pastor and sharing his faith journey with others. He is also the author of 3 published books.

He lives with his wife of twenty-five years, three children, one grand child, one lazy red bone hound dog and two cats. As a writer he knows the value of a good review, and reviews to help other authors sell their books.
