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.

Melissa Abrehamsen Melissa Abrehamsen is the author of the YA, Paranormal Romance novel, FORETOLD. She's also a proud Army/Navy mom, licensed minister and certified life coach. Which means she's a magnet for people who want to transform from the inside out.

When she's not helping people renew their mind, will and emotions, she's reading and writing reviews for like-minded authors in the genres of YA, Sci-fi, Paranormal and Suspense...all with elements of romance. Given all of that, she still has time to date her husband in their freshly empty nest in Central Florida, where they live with their two Fruitloops-for-crazy-town dachshunds.

I am experienced in writing, editing, and proofreading undergraduate and graduate level academic and creative works. I have a passion for language and I am attentive to detail. I love to read in my spare time and I discuss what I read with anyone who will listen.

I will read anything, but my go-to is usually YA fantasy and sci-fi and fiction fantasy and sci-fi. I occasionally like a good horror or suspense novel and I love comics. In non-fiction, I like to read cultural books, though sometimes other topics will catch my eye.

I appreciate how a good author can take me on a journey or transport me to another place and time. I have been an avid reader for 30+ yrs and appreciate how difficult the writing process must be.

I have read over 1,000 books and enjoy Fiction as well as a great Biography. I am excited to be reviewing for Readers Favorite and hope to help as many authors as I can with honest and encouraging reviews of their work.
J.K. Rowling Hi everyone, my name is Misty. I am a college student at Southern New Hampshire University and I am working towards a degree in psychology. I am a vegetarian, I love animals, and I currently have three dogs.

She earned her B.A Honours in Near Eastern Archaeology and Medieval Studies from Wilfrid Laurier University. Nicole is also the author of 'Revealing the Revolution' (published under the name N.M Sotzek), her debut novel and the first of a large-scale science-fiction series.

Nichole enjoys being a reviewer because it lets her help other writers with quality reviews of their work and helps her improve her own writing in the process.
Baroness Emmuska Orczy Hello, my name is Arielle Bailey (pen name Melody Shepherd). I learned to read when I was four and have been devouring the written word ever since. Writing is my passion. I am an avid student of languages, history, and culture. I like reviewing books because I love sharing what I've read with other people and seeing them fall in love with something I enjoyed reading.

My favorite authors are Baroness Emmuska Orczy (pictured left) and J.R.R. Tolkien. I know how helpful reviews can be to authors, so it's nice to be able to give back to the world of literature.
Melissa Munoz Hello, my name is Melissa. I am an avid reader, I finish reading a new book (or an old favorite) every few days. My favorite genres are romance, contemporary romance, and new adult. I love discovering new authors that write about relatable topics. My favorite kind of books are those that grab hold of you from the beginning and then before you know it you're done!

I consider myself a fast reader but that doesn't diminish my critical eye. I think the biggest gift I can give a new author, or even established authors, is an honest review so that they can improve their future work.
Megan Sparrow Hello, my name is Megan. I've always loved reading and usually devour several books a week, which I have recently begun reviewing on my blog. I don't have a favourite genre or age-range and will pretty much read anything if the blurb intrigues me!

In fact, you could say that I have a mini used book store right in my bedroom!

I am fortunate to be able to review books for Readers Favorite and Thomas Nelson, as well as many other publishing companies and authors. I review books for the sheer enjoyment of reading a good book, and to help spread the word about new, wonderful authors and their creations! I also have a blog called Reviews by Molly, where I post many of the reviews I have done. That's me in a nutshell!

I worked in bookstore management for 8 years, then in January of 2010, I became a stay at home mom and started a book blog called Inspired by Fiction. Christian fiction is my favorite genre because the entertaining stories challenge and motivate me in my faith, attitudes, actions, and views.
Michelle Lamoste Hello, my name is Michelle. I am a full-time mom, wife, writer, and communication specialist. No matter how busy I am, I never end the day without reading. Reading gives me the joy of discovering new places and opportunities for honing my skills. Every story I read--fiction or non-fiction--helps me develop empathy for others and most especially myself. It helps me understand better than any other media how fascinating our world and lives can be.

Each book I choose to read leaves an indelible mark because whether it's a moral lesson or a language tip, I know that I have picked up something valuable from another person's life or work.
Michelle Randall Hello, my name is Michelle. I love to read and review books. I am a stay-at-home mother of three children, have a degree in psychology and love to craft. I am active in supporting my children in their projects which include showing rabbits, theater, dance and show choir, guitar lessons and fiddle lessons.

Melody Bussey Hello, my name is Melody. Someone in my early childhood once told me that words can set you free. Oddly enough, I believed them. Words have truly set me free to live the life that I enjoy, and better yet, to provide many things for many people (and improve their lives), too.

I consider reviewing a way of helping others, and am honored to be a small part of their personal history.

I want to be a book reviewer because it combines my passion for writing with access to a contemporary library of new authors.
Mike Dixon Hello, my name is Mike. I began my working life as an astrophysicist and left it for a messy career that took me into Parliament House (Canberra), public relations and the diving industry. My final trick was to establish a backpacker resort for divers. I’m now retired in the sense that I no longer have to work for a living. That gives me time for writing and reviewing books.

Over the years I have penned several works, including the ‘The Six Essays for Freedom’, ‘The Golden Path Quintet’ and ‘How I write Romance.’

I enjoy many genres and authors, with one of my favorite authors being John Buchan (pictured left). I would like to give back to the writing community by helping others as a reviewer - and indeed to engage with fellow writers for it is we who ‘change the world.'
Molly Burkemper My name Molly Burkemper and I have always loved reading. As a young child of 9, I was the only student in the entire K-8 school that was allowed to check out multiple books at a time from the school library. The librarians looked forward to my visits and always had suggestions for me because they recognized my great love for books. In high school, I joined the Library Club to continue expressing my passion. Now, I write for myself.

I recently graduated college Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Philosophy, as well as minors in French and English. I am a not-yet-published author, and it has become my new passion. However, I still enjoy reading, and I like to tell people about the great books I've read. Nothing makes me happier than when someone reads a book I've recommended, and they have enjoyed it too.
Marta Tandori Hello, my name is Marta. I've always been an avid reader but it wasn’t until I began studying acting in my early twenties at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York that I realized acting wasn’t really my passion – writing fiction was. Thanks to an overly zealous addiction in my youth to all things Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden, I fell in love with mysteries and it’s hardly a surprise that I chose to write in the same genre!

I'm the author of the Kate Stanton Hollywood Mystery Series as well as several other standalone mysteries. As a writer, I know how difficult it is to become noticed and to find a readership. I love reviewing books because reviews help new authors get their work noticed. You can learn more about me on my website, Facebook and Twitter.

I have been working as a freelance writer and translator for the last three years. I also work as a part-time editor for a few local newspapers.

Nevenka Krstic Hello, my name is Nevenka and I voraciously read a wide variety of literature, fiction and non-fiction. Favorites would have to be science-related non-fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy fiction, but not exclusively. I would admit, if I am honest, that I am a reading addict. Fortunately it is a socially acceptable addiction. I also acquire hobbies at a ridiculous pace, and will try just about anything at least once - except bungy-jumping. The current favorite is photography.

Past endeavors have included silversmithing, sabre fencing, pottery, chocolate truffle making, iceskating, rock climbing and so on. In short, I'm a generalist. I adore travel, and I adore music - here too I find it hard to stick to one genre. One life is too short to do everything I want to do, see everything I want to see, but I'm giving it a darn good try.
Michael McDonald-Low Hello, my name is Michael. I have the good fortune of being retired after 20+ years of publishing magazines in extreme sports and boating, and after serving as an officer in the military. Currently I do special consulting work for the Defense Department on missing MIAs in Southeast Asia.

I am also a writer and have just released a book entitled Unaccounted. I want to be a reviewer because I enjoy reading and appreciate a well crafted story. My favorite authors are James Lee Burke, John Scalzi, Robert Crais, Norman Mailer, Larry Niven, Alistar Reynolds, and Peter F. Hamilton.
Nadine Larter My name is Nadine Larter and I'm a compulsive communicator living in the coastal town of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. By day I am an author and by night I watch far too much television. I'm a mom, a stepmom, a wife, a friend, a daughter and a sister and I am addicted to cupcakes and cookie dough.

I would love to review for Readers Favorite because I believe that in helping others I get to be part of creating a little bit of goodness in the world. I know that authors need all the help they can get, because I am one. I also know and appreciate what goes into a novel and how important honest feedback is. You can learn more about me on Facebook, Twitter, and on my blog.
Michelle Stanley Hello, my name is Michelle. I love reading, and writing poetry and prose, which is is posted on a few sites including my blog. Reviewing books gives me the opportunity to further develop and hone my writing skills.

Being a freelance writer gives me the time to do the things I want, which includes reading. I have the satisfaction of mixing business with pleasure whenever I review books and I love every moment of it!

I provide honest reviews and enjoy sharing my opinions to help my fellow authors and their readers.

I frequently review on my blog, which reaches an audience of more than 5,000 across many social media networks. As an author, I know the value of reviews. Whether good or constructive, all reviews give author an opportunity to learn about their readers and their own writing.

I enjoy providing reviews to other authors who are struggling to get their work seen in the huge global market place. I have been a reviewer for more than 2 years and am always honest and comprehensive, but in the spirit of helping authors learn and grow in their craft.

I am an entrepreneur handling a design and construction firm, a furniture manufacturing firm, an all-around events firm (conceptualization, management, and actualization), a photography business, and a bakeshop. I am also starting an online store selling hand-made home and fashion accessories.

Despite my many hats, I also dream of becoming a writer. With my love of reading, I feel the best way to start a writing career is to become a book reviewer. I am excited to be reviewing for Readers Favorite where I can both help and learn from fellow authors.
Marsh Cassady Hello, my name is Marsh. I was a regular book reviewer for two national magazines and an arts newspaper in San Diego. I still write reviews occasionally for local papers. A former theatre and creative writing professor with a Ph.D. degree, I'm the author of fifty-four published books of my own in many genres and about twenty-five books that I've ghosted. I'd estimate that over the years I've had about 4000 short pieces published.

For thirty-seven years I've led all-genre writing workshops. For eight years I was co-publisher of a small press and have been editor of two magazines and two literary journals. I've also been a professional actor/director/scene designer and my art is in several area galleries. Before going to graduate school I was a newspaper journalist.
Michelle Robertson Graduating from Cambria Rowe-Business College with an Associates Degree in Medical Office Administration, Michelle has worked as a contracted typist as well as freelance writer and is currently a stay-at-home mother of 2 young children.

Michelle is an avid book reader, reading and reviewing several books a month in many different genres.
Cassandra Clare Hello, my name is Megan. I am an avid book reader that likes to read almost any genre but I especially love romance, science fiction. One of my favorite authors is Cassandra Clare (pictured left). I have a book review blog that I post to nearly every day and I also do book blitzes and book tours.

I read anywhere from 3 to 6 books a day and have gotten many replies from authors and publishers thanking me for my reviews. I have also had people tell me that my review made them want to buy the book. I love being able to help others while doing something I love.
