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 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 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. You can even earn money and win cash prizes!

All this came with me on emigration to Australia in 1969.

After over 40 years under the blue skies of New South Wales I still enjoy writing poems and "stories I'm still living in". I enjoy reviewing many genres, but poetry is my favorite.

My favorite subjects are King Arthur’s history and legends, British history, and Celtic folktales and lore. I am a member in good standing in the International Arthurian Society, North American Branch, The Round Table. I love to visit London on a regular basis but my roots are in New York City. As a native New Yorker, I love the hustle and bustle of it all.

I've been a successful fundraiser in the nonprofit world with a focus on workforce solutions and housing programs including rehabs, rebuilds, rental assistance and foreclosure mitigation.

I enjoy reviewing books by my fellow authors, but I am a literary purist: I refuse to read books that are poorly written. Some of my favorite authors are Graham Greene, Charles Frazier, Carol Birch, Iris Murdoch and Daphne DuMaurier.

I was born and raised in England but have lived in America for many years. My wife Maggie and I have a passion for travel, reading and writing. It is my love of reading that drives me to be a reviewer and to contribute back to authors.

Many years ago, the bombing of a local church and the killing of innocent children and teachers, started me on a journey to encourage tolerance and acceptance. Any form of bigotry and prejudice has no place in our society. This has formed the basis for much of my writing and speaking - and hopefully, my life.
Jennifer Teague Hello, my name is Jennifer and I believe reading is a great habit! I love to read informational books regarding business, entrepreneurship, leadership, and chic lit. I believe the main reason for books is to learn, so I try to absorb as much as I can through each one I read, regardless of the genre.

I also collect vintage Noir/Hardboiled paperbacks, and have one of the largest collection of Dan Marlowe novels, magazine stories and inscribed items.

I would like to review because of my interest in crime fiction, hard and medium-boiled and noir. Most of my reading time and all of my writing time is devoted to that genre. I also feel that by finding the strengths and weaknesses of other writers in the field, it will improve my own efforts. You can learn more about me on my website.
Joe Brenneman Hello, my name is Joe. I am a lifelong fan of books and I will read nearly anything. I do tend to favor non-fiction though, and I like history, war, and philosophy books most. My favorite authors are: O. Henry, George Orwell, Mark Twain, and William F. Buckley.

A well-written book should be able to both transport you to the time and location of an event, as well as help you understand the characters' mind sets as they react to events. I enjoy being a reviewer because I like to discuss books with others and help authors and their readers.
JP Bary My name is JP Bary and I am a retired attorney and financial advisor who loves to read and write. I have written "The Persistent Observer's Guide to Wine," a book that bridges the gap between ordinary consumers and wine experts.

Jeffrey Smith Hello, my name is Jeffrey. I have written and continue writing stories both short and long. Thank God for short stories, they got me through English Lit in high school. I live in Maine with my wife who is also my editor, along with three Boston Terriers, three cats and two horses.

I like reviewing other authors work because it makes me think more critically of my own writing. Anything that helps me to be a better writer is a good thing. If I can help to improve someone else in the process we all win, and that includes the reader, because at the end of the day if the reader isn't happy, we as authors are not happy either. You can learn more about me on Facebook and Smashwords.

I enjoy most genres including romance, fantasy, science fiction and mystery. Some of my favorite authors are Stephen King, Louis L'Amour, and Laurel K. Hamilton (pictured left).

Currently I am a stay at home mom to my four children. My unwinding time at the end of the day usually involves a book.

Jill Q. My name is Jill Quiring and to me, reading is like breathing. I am never more happy than when I am caught up in the intrigue and mystery of a well told story. As a high school English teacher, I want to model love for reading as well as the importance of perfecting your craft.
Jessica Porter Hello! My name is Jessica and I am the sole reviewer of Crossroad Reviews. I love to read books mostly from the Teen/Ya section. I am a mother of two little girls and a wife. I am trying to get my children to read (it isn't working).

I own more books than clothes and I review for 4 major publishers. I am excited to be expanding my reviewing to include all the interesting genres at Readers Favorite.
