ABOUT READERS' FAVORITE

Readers' Favorite is owned and operated by authors for authors. Our staff and nearly all our 1,000+ reviewers are authors who have come together to provide 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. Thus we have created an Author Forum in our Author Area where authors can communicate with each other, ask questions, and share ideas on writing, marketing and more. We also provide hundreds of free articles that we have created to answer questions and guide authors through today's often difficult and changing literary landscape.

In addition, we provide professional, low cost proofreading, editing and critique services starting at just $1 per page. We add fast and friendly customer support by email, phone and text message to make sure authors get the help they need. 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.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Additionaly, authors who 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 percent of the proceeds are donated to St. Jude Children's Hospital, as well as any unsold copies. We are the only vendor at the fair that 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.

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 such as 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.

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.
