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.

Sarah Westmoreland Hello, my name is Sarah. I have been writing since I was very young, and completed my first novel at the age of thirteen. I am currently attending college and plan to get a double-major in Master of Information and Library science, and Master of Fine Arts - focus in Creative Writing. I have released one novel, Najee: A Glimmer of Hope, and hope to soon have two more available!

I have always loved to read and enjoy a wide variety of genres and writing styles. I am currently on the beta-reading list for several novels in my writing group and enjoy helping other authors with fair and insightful reviews.

Shauna McMillan Hello, my name is Shauna. I love to read, and I love to review books to help others. It takes me to other worlds for awhile, or teaches me something new. I have three teenage sons and I work as a cook/cashier.

I have a college degree in Human Services and I founded a nonprofit group called the Friendly Neighbors Group.

Sherri Fulmer Moorer Greetings! My name is Sherri, and I've had a lifelong love of books. I'm an independent author with several published titles (both through epublishers and self published) and I served as an editor for ReadWave, a short story website based out of London, England.

Novels are my first love, and I'd like to become more active in doing book reviews to help authors and to promote great work that people might not otherwise notice. It's incredibly difficult for new authors to get reviews, and I hope to provide a "voice" to their work so they can be discovered by readers who will enjoy their work.
Samantha Gregory Hello, my name is Samantha. I am a published author, my novel Daemon Persuasion was published earlier this year. I work as a freelance journalist for a local paper writing articles, including movie and book reviews. I have studied proofreading and I teach a class on writing once a month. The class is as much a learning experience for me as it is for them. I don't think you ever stop learning ways to improve your writing.

I enjoy a wide range of genres and love to read the work of new authors. I feel there are a lot of great writers out there who aren't getting the credit they deserve.
Sheila Trask Hello, my name is Shelia Trask. I am a professional book reviewer and have published hundreds of reviews in a variety of publications. I also have a Master's degree in Library and Information Services that serves me well in this type of work. I love getting the word out about new books, new authors, and new ideas.
Samantha Walker Hello, my name is Samantha Walker. With a degree in English-Creative Writing, both reading and writing are my passions. In the future, I hope to be a published author, but for the time being, I am thrilled to read the work of others and provide valuable feedback for the author and their future readers.
Savannah Edelen Hello, my name is Savannah and I am a high school student. I love to read and have been reading all of my life. I personally like to read more of the fantasy type novels that include vampires, werewolves and all kinds of things like that.

I love reading books by new authors and being able to help them with my reviews. I also enjoy books by more seasoned authors. A favorite series of mine is the House of Night series by P.C. Cast. Although she is more well-known, the series isn't, but its absolutely amazing.
S.E. Sward My name is S.E. Sward and I live in Little Rock, Arkansas, with my husband and daughter and two overfed felines. I am also an author, having self-published my first novel, "Immaculate Conceptions," in January 2012. When I'm not working on my next novel, I write blog posts under the pen name Dame Nuisance and teach essay writing to college freshmen.

I love to read and I love to write, so being a reviewer for Readers' Favorite is the perfect vehicle for doing both.

I love being able to review books and offer feedback to authors, as I understand how important reviews are. In addition to all my book duties, I am also a yogi and beauty vlogger.
Sarah Stuart Hi! I'm Sarah Stuart and I live in the north-east of England. I am a qualified adult literacy tutor and write short stories for use within a college. I have written articles featured in magazines, mainly about dogs, wildlife conservation, and the theatre. More recently I self-published the first two romantic suspense novels in the Royal Command series, so I understand the importance of reviews to authors: the delight a good one can bring, and how damaging critical ones are, to confidence and to sales.

Reviewing for Readers' Favorite appeals to me very much, where only 4 and 5 star reviews are posted publicly and authors who receive a lower rating get honest, helpful feedback privately. I am a avid reader and enjoy a wide variety of genres. You can learn more about me on Goodreads and Facebook.
Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky Hello, my name is Scila. I am absolutely, passionately curious and reading is the perfect way for me to explore the world. I am an avid reader since the age of 5. I read any genre, from economy to romance, from politics to history, and my favorite author is Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky (pictured left).

I am excited to be Readers' Favorite reviewer where I have the opportunity to discover new authors and share great stories with the readers community.

I have a strong presence in the indie author community and work with them on critiquing, marketing, and editing. My favorite genres are fantasy and paranormal romance, but read pretty much everything. I wrote The Van Buren Series, which includes Second Hand Stops, Rewind, and Fast Forward. They're in digital, print, and audio. My next project will be a lighthearted series about a girl named Sydney Durkins.

I'm a world glass gardener and Caribbean travel hound and I love to research psychological topics, which helps me create believable and interesting characters. I've reviewed a number of indie books across many different genres.
Sherri Phennicie My name is Sherri. I'm a happily married woman of 5 children. Most of my career life I have worked with children ages infants to 12 years of age as a Daycare Teacher. Currently, I work from home transcribing, legal dictation, interviews, and Webcasts, so writing book reviews is just an added pleasure to my list of things to do. In my "spare time" I love to read, read, and read some more. I am particularly fond of historical romance novels, but I will also read a good cozy mystery. I am also in a romance book club where we eat and discuss the books we have been reading. I love it!

The reason I write book reviews is because I know their power, since they are what I use to pick books. I can't just read a good book, I have to share what I've read, hopefully helping other book lovers to try out a new book. My goal is to write reviews for local newspapers, magazines, and online bookstores.

I love the fact of being able to get lost in another world.

I've also recently taken up writing a little bit myself and I have high hopes that someone will be reviewing my own book someday. In the mean time, I plan to help as many authors as I can with honest reviews of their work.

I have worked in a variety of administrative roles but have always been happiest traveling and teaching English as a foreign language. My last position was in a private school in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. I read for pleasure, for knowledge and, more often than not, for escapism.

While I think this world is fascinating I am often happier when in another world and will read in any given format, paperback, hardback, ereader, computer screen. If there are words to be read I am there. I am just starting to branch out into book reviews but have recently discovered reviewing a book makes me a better reader and gives me the chance to share my opinions and lead other people to books that have moved, interested or inspired me.

I have been knowingly on the spiritual path since the age of thirteen and have practiced transcendental meditation since the age of fourteen. I also like to include yoga asana practice when time permits. When I write reviews, I love to go into the heart of a book and feel what each author wishes to share with the world.
Sandy Masia Hello, my name is Sandy. I studied at Rhodes University and majored in Organizational Psychology. I am also a writer and editor. I have a special interest in psychological works, dark fiction, thrillers and horrors. I have a love for challenging, engaging and thought altering works which leave one with a lasting impact.

Critically engaging with any work is rewarding on so many levels, it sharpens our sensibilities and allows us to be even better at creating. Reviewing to me is quite an important art; you show people what works and what doesn't work about about a piece of work, enough to interest them without ruining the authentic experience of reading a new book.
Sam Hartman My name is Sam Hartman and I am in Middle School at Riverbend Montessori in Natick, Massachusetts. I am an avid reader and am rarely without a book in my hand (or on my Kindle). As a young reader, I am always looking for books that my parents consider ‘appropriate’, but that I still enjoy.

Reading reviews on different websites helps me choose the right books, so I'd like to help other young readers find great books by being a reviewer for Readers Favorite. When I am not reading, I enjoy swimming, music and playing games with my three brothers.
