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.

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 AwardAs 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. 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 $20,000 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 am a Registered Nurse turned full time student. I enjoy spending time curled up with my kids and a good book. I read many genres by many authors, but especially like the works of Nora Ephron (pictured left).

I enjoy being a reviewer for many reasons, but mainly for the opportunity to read books by new authors which allows me to expand my "comfort zone" of usual reads.
Sarah Lowry Hello, my name is Sarah and I am an avid reader. I especially love fantasy, paranormal, magical realism, and literary fiction, but I enjoy reading nearly every genre. I write as well as read, and I recently had a short story entitled Forbidden Child published in an anthology called Shades of Fear. I am currently finishing my BA in English Language and Literature.

I thoroughly enjoy editing, book reviewing, and meeting amazing authors. I write professional, honest reviews of the books I read. I don't include spoilers or rants.

I love most books but especially enjoy science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, and mystery. I am also an aspiring author, though I haven't pursued publication.

I believe books should be action packed but not a whirlwind, descriptive but not flowery, contain wholesome love but not too much romance, and leave the reader hungry for more but satisfied with the course he was served. I enjoy being a reviewer and being able to assist authors in improving their skills.
Robin McCoy-Ramirez Hi, my name is Robin McCoy-Ramirez. I live in Putnam, CT with my husband and 7 1/2 month old daughter, Savannah Rose, as well as our 3 rescue dogs. When I am not reading, I love to cook, travel and spend time with family.

My favorite sport to watch is baseball and love "behind the game" stories. I also love reading about religions; their beliefs and roots. Two of my favorite authors are Laura Ingalls Wilder and Beatrix Potter (pictured left).

I enjoy reviewing because it allows me to give back to authors who give us so much. I can help them get their work noticed with fair and professional reviews of their work.

As a writer, I know how important reviews are, and as a compulsive reader I love to discover great stories and help spread the word about them. You can learn more about me on my blog.
Sandy Appleyard Hello, my name is Sandy. You'll often find me nose deep reading or writing a book...sometimes both. I've been writing for the past 9 years, having left my corporate administration job, and although the pay isn't great I love it. Coupled with books, I regularly write blogs with helpful information for writers pertaining to writing and self-publishing advice, inspirational topics and sometimes more interactive topics to include readers and writers alike.

I am an author and recently finished the first book in my MAGNUS trilogy, Rising Sun, and am currently working on the sequel, Triumphator. Books have always been an integral part of my life. I find it nearly impossible to imagine a life without piles of books waiting to be devoured.

As an aspiring author who is in a constant hunt for advice, feedback, and critiques of my own books, I understand how vital it is for authors to receive unbiased reviews of their own work. Aside from helping fellow authors receive honest praise from an unaffected third party, I'm also thrilled at the possibility that the next great book is waiting for me just around the corner.

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.
Rebecca Grant Hi there, my name is Rebecca. What can I tell you about myself? Well, first and foremost, I love to read! Reading, whether it is for pleasure, school, or self-education, is and always has been a major part of my life. As a matter of fact, it is a rare occasion if I don't have my nose in a book or glued to my Kindle. I tend to lean toward romance novels, but I do read books from all genres.

I have a full-time job where I am a dedicated desk jockey and have a Masters degree from Michigan State. I wrote my first book, “Come What May”, and self-published it in September. I know the value of effective reviews and am excited to be combining my passions for reading and writing to work for the benefit of other readers and writers.

I have traveled the world as a volunteer and a student, and have seen some amazing places, and met some wonderful people.

I love to read, and am a history buff (and some would say nerd). I love museums, learning new things, and trying out new cultural events and different cuisines. My kids mean the world to me, and I love that as a mom and a teacher, I get to help shape and enrich young minds.

I am an avid reader and I enjoy many different genres such as fantasy, thrillers, crime dramas, suspense, and many more. If it's interesting, then it's for me!

I want to be a book reviewer so that I can expand my interests and have the opportunity to read new material that I might not have read normally. Another reason is so that I can practice my writing skills and keep them sharp. I am in school and use my writing skills quite a bit but this is completely different and a lot of fun!

Sarah Scoffin Hello, my name is Sarah. I am a Yorkshire lass, born and bred, with a degree in English Language and Linguistics and have carried a love of reading from an early age. 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.
Robert Kirkconnell Hello, my name is Robert. I am a Vietnam veteran and I also taught in public schools for 15 years. My degrees are in business and education. I have always been an avid reader and began writing my first book at the age of 60. As a new author, Readers' Favorite provided me with much needed support, and I would like to see others, especially new writers, get the same help that I did.

I was fortunate to have received an outstanding (and free) review that validated my efforts and gave me the confidence I needed to promote the book. The book also won a Readers' Favorite international award in 2014. This would not have happened without this exceptional program that promotes ordinary people with talent. I want to be a part of this process of supporting writers, especially when they are new to the profession.
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.

My job there allowed me to teach children to read and hopefully to love books as much as I do. I have been married for almost 35 years, and have 4 children and 8 grandchildren.

Since I retired I have been wanting to do something that would help people. I also love to write so combining this with the chance to read new books and write reviews to help new authors seems like an awesome opportunity for me.

I love the idea of being able to pick which books I would like to review and creating honest and professional assessments of them for readers. In addition, as an author I also know how helpful constructive criticism is.

Samantha Rivera Hello, my name is Samantha and I am a graduate of Ferris State University's Criminal Justice program. I just recently married and am excited about starting all the new plans for our future.

I absolutely love books and read just about any genre. I started reviewing because my friends kept asking me about the books I have read. Now I enjoy reviewing books as much as I enjoy reading them.

He loves writing on paranormal, human nature, true love, and religious concepts. He’s new in American literature, but has a great ambition to be one of the greatest authors and poets.

Poetry, paranormal, fantasy, fiction, Gothic, and mystery genres are his favorites. Reading is a part of his nature and allows him him to step beyond the mundane. Reviewing allows Robert to help other authors while improving his own skills.
Roger M. Woodbury My name is Roger and in addition to college and graduate school, I have had experience in public school and college level education, military service, owned insurance agencies, construction and property renovation companies and mining operations. Now having reached that age when the Airforce isn't going to let me fly their aircraft and my wife has refused to let me run a long-line fishing boat, I have become a published writer and author.

My personal preference is for fiction about real people and real times as I believe that real people make the best predators and prey. I live in a small Maine town with my wife and three very spoiled cats.

I found my way into book reviews through networking and sharing my passion with readers. I'm a lifelong reader and book addict and I love to devour knowledge and connect with authors.

I understand how critical reviews are to the success of a book, and I also understand the amount of blood, sweat and tears that go into writing a book. I try to always draw out the positive aspects of a book in a review and be objectively critical when necessary.

Robin Puelma Hi, my name is Robin Puelma and I graduated from Pepperdine University with a BA in Creative Writing. I excel at writing for various media; from online travel blogs and editorial pieces to curriculum, books and scripts. I strive to craft interesting pieces that will inspire, inform and captivate an audience.

I have experience reading, critiquing and editing articles, manuscripts, and personal essays for both classmates, peers and clients. Having received generous amounts of feedback on my own manuscript and personal essays, I know what makes for helpful criticism and what doesn’t.
