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!

Maria Miller Hello, my name is Maria. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from Xavier University, and I've enjoyed writing for a long time. I've written five novels and am working on the sixth. I was born and raised in the United States, but I lived in Costa Rica for a year and a half, which gave me a different perspective on the world.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my husband and kids. I feel honored to be able to review the work of other authors and always provide honest and informative reviews.
I am Leah Gonzalez and I worked in the corporate world for eight years before I decided to jump ship (or throw myself overboard) and get on my own little row boat of dreams. I've been dabbling in various freelance writing jobs ever since. I also work part time as a marketing assistant at a newly-launched author design and marketing company.

These days I'm still trying to get into a nice freelance groove and I'm contemplating my first major writing project. I am also obsessed with my blog, which is like my little online playground where I test my mad blogger design skills and post about my freelancing life, books and authors, movies, music, ultimate frisbee and awesome graphic tees I find online. You can learn more about me on my blog, Facebook, Twitter and on Goodreads.
Maria Victoria Beltran Maria Beltran is a voracious reader who is also a writer. After getting her Biology degree at the University of the Philippines, she worked in different jobs such as Commodity and Currency Futures Trader, Marketing Manager, Businesswoman, Scuba Dive Instructor, Resort Owner, Film Maker and Visual Artist.

Through all these experiences she was always a writer, maintaining a column at a local newspaper and winning two literary prizes for fiction. Her latest foray is into screenplay writing. You can learn more about her on her website and blog.
Lindsay Satmary Hello, my name is Lindsay and I'm a marketing professional, entrepreneur, business owner, happy wife, new mom to an amazing little boy, and office supply enthusiast. I run two businesses from home with my husband while spending time with our little guy who is almost one. In my spare time, I enjoy home improvement projects, Pinterest, social media, our 4 cats, travel, dining, reading, writing, and much more.

Being a reviewer allows me to give back to the writing community while helping authors and reading great new books. You can find out information about me on my website.
Anne Rice My name is Lit and I'm an indie writer still trying to find my own solid platform in the writing industry, and freelancing at the same time to support my dream. I am an avid reader of many genres and authors, with Anne Rice (pictured left) being one of my favorites.

As a writer myself, I understand the importance of reviews. We writers need feedback to get better and we need to know our readers, and as a reviewer I am able to provide that support to my fellow authors.
Maria Whelan Hello, my name is Maria and I am a current Mount Holyoke College student where I am an English and religion major. I began reviewing books as a young teenager. When I went to college, I began writing reviews for the Mount Holyoke News, our college newspaper, and quickly became the "Books" section editor.

I am excited to be reviewing for Readers' Favorite and for the opportunity to provide authors and their readers with honest, professional reviews.

Madelaine Kingsbury Hello, my name is Madelaine and I am a lover of the written word in all forms - narratives, drama, poetry, nonfiction, experimental... you name it, I've tried it! I'm a high school English teacher from the Philadelphia area who's best friend is my local library. I'm an amateur photographer, a frequent concert-goer, and a mom to a wiley, brilliant elementary-aged daughter.

For the last five years, I've set a goal to read 100 books in 365 days, and I've gotten close each year, missing by less than 10 books each time! As a reviewer I get to do what I love and help others at the same time.
Laura Roberts Laura Roberts writes about sex, travel and ninjas - but not necessarily in that order. As the author of the “V for Vixen” sex column, Laura began her career chronicling Montrealers’ sexcapades, which are collected together in her book, The Vixen Files. Blending real-life observations with fictional fantasies, she’s also penned The Montreal Guide to Sex, 69 Sexy Haiku, Ninjas of the 512, and parts 1 and 2 of her serial novel, Naked Montreal.

Linda Harlan My name is Linda and I am a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 8. I am an office manager for a small law firm in Franklin, TN and work with some wonderful people, many of whom are fervent book readers like myself. I immensely enjoy reading and it is not uncommon that I have two or three books going at one time.

I belong to a great book club - the BOBS (Babes on Books) and we read one book a month from all different genres. I would love to be able to review some of the new books coming out and approach them with an open mind and willingness to critique them in love.

Lucas Howard Hello, my name is Lucas Howard. I am 17 years old, I live in Kentucky and am a senior at the David School. In my free time I read and write poetry and play the guitar.

I have always loved to read and am excited about reviewing books for other authors.
Lia Simitsiadou My name is Lia Simitsiadou. I was born in the Netherlands but was raised in Greece, where I discovered my immense love for books. I would get my books from school on the first day and literally read them all ...kind of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter. Growing up I've had my share of family turmoil, but I managed to finish high school with honors, and move on to University to study English language and LIterature. I had always been very good at English but here I literally fell in love with the language.

I found myself in the position of English teacher. I love kids and love teaching them and sharing myself with them. I am married now and am the mother of a witty, lively 5-year-old girl. I still love books and I've managed to convey that to my little girl. I don't think I will ever tire of reading...why stop when there are so many things to learn, so many imaginary worlds to travel to?
Lorraine Carey My name is Lorraine Carey and I am a veteran Children's Literature Specialist now living on Grand Cayman which has given me much inspiration for writing. I have a short published memoir and am currently finishing a mystery thriller for YA readers which will become a trilogy.

I enjoy reading and reviewing and feel proud to be able to give something back to other authors by reviewing for Readers Favorite. You can learn more about me on my website.

Lynn Fowlston My Name is Lynn Fowlston and I live with my husband in Tennessee. We have 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren! I have many hobbies, including counted cross stitching, puzzles, working with animals and of course, reading.

I have loved reading all my life, and have amassed a home library of close to 1,400 books from the 1800's to 2010. I have tried to pass my love of reading to my children. Reading is not only an adventure for children, it also helps them tremendously in school.

I will read almost any genre, and enjoy being one of the first to read works from new authors, because you never know who will be the next James Patterson! You can read more about me on my blog.

Lila Davis My name Lila Davis and I am a Night Manager at a local University. I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my four children, singing, writing, reading and reviewing different books.

I think reviewing books is a way to get the next generation to read new and exciting books. I would also love to help new writers get their books noticed. I hope one day to publish one of the books that I've written and hope that someone would do the same thing for me.
Mackenzie Dohoney My name is Mackenzie Dohoney and I live in Rockport, IN. I am currently a freshman in high school where I am an avid softball and basketball player.

I also love to read. Some of my favorite authors are Stephanie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, and James Patterson, but I am also excited to read young adult books by new authors. Stories of love, courage and adventure interest me the most. You can learn more about me on my Facebook and Twitter pages.
Lauren Lichliter Hello, my name is Lauren Lichliter and I am a third grade teacher who loves to spend any and all of my spare time reading.

I enjoy reviewing books that I buy online and think it would be wonderful to do it on a website that both readers and authors use. Access to numerous free books for this purpose is also incredibly awe-inspiring!

I have been a film reviewer and just recently began reviewing books, which I have always wanted to do.
Laurel Bartlett Hi, my name is Laurel. I'm a freelance writer, editor, and communications consultant who has been blogging on a personal level since 2005. My reviews for adult products led to a full time position with an online adult retailer. I started out as a review editor, then features editor, and finally editor of the company's online magazine.

My philosophy is to provide an honest but fair and respectful review of any book that I read.
Robert Jordan Hello, my name is Lucianne. A bookworm and proud of it, I prefer reading fiction and non-fiction books to almost any alternative form of entertainment out there today. I stumbled onto reading for pleasure during my elementary school years and really got into it when introduced to the school library's extensive collection of hardbound Nancy Drew books.

Currently, my preferences lie more along the lines of quirky and intriguing works like the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan (pictured left). As much as I love reading, reviewing gives me even more satisfaction as I can voice my opinions in the form of honest and professional reviews.
Lisa Blair Hello, my name is Lisa. I am a thankful Texan, Researcher, Teacher, Photographer and Rosarian. My desire is to delight the Lord’s heart and bring glory and honor to His Name. Being a native Texan, I enjoyed growing up in the great outdoors and have continued that tradition by raising my children in the country.

I graduated from Baylor University with a B.A. in Psychology. I am an avid reader and began reviewing books online after joining Good Reads in 2013. Being an avid reader, I enjoy a good book! And great books are such a delight!
Margo Bond Collins Hello, my name is Margo. I am a college professor and teach a variety of English courses, from freshman composition to graduate-level courses in British literature. I am therefore both a writer and a writing instructor. As a fiction author, I write paranormal fiction of all kinds (mysteries, romances, and so on) and urban fantasy. I am currently the founding editor of the academic journal Supernatural Studies. I am also in the process of editing several essay collections on popular culture--in particular, television shows such as Supernatural or Farscape.

I review writing every day; being able to review works that I have chosen myself sounds heavenly. I can be found on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Laura Nielsen My name is Laura Nielson. I have been married for 18 years and have 7 children ranging in age from 1 to 17. I live in the state of Minnesota so there are plenty of cold months where reading helps to keep us sane!

I love all kinds of books, from the kid's paperbacks to the epic novels. I especially love juvenile fiction and historical non-fiction.
Marcia Abramson Hello, my name is Marcia. I am a professional freelance copy editor, proofreader and book reviewer. I previously was a head copy editor for a major daily U.S. newspaper, where I reviewed books for the paper and its parent companies for many years.

My specialty, though, has always been romance novels, science fiction and historical novels. (I am eagerly awaiting the next novel from Diana Gabaldon, one of my all-time favorites.) I have a BA in Honors English and Spanish and an MA in comp lit from a major university in my home state in the Midwest. Reading is absolutely my favorite thing to do!
Lee Ashford My name is Lee and over the past 8 years I have read, literally, thousands of books. I started to notice that some of the books I read were considerably "better" than others, for a variety of reasons, so I started writing reviews. I posted those reviews on and, and received many emails from authors thanking me for my honest reviews. I found this entire process to be a lot of fun, and with my health problem, "fun" is something I don't get a lot of these days!

I am honored and delighted to be a Readers Favorite reviewer, as it allows me to do something helpful for authors, who bring so much joy to people with their creativity.
C. Leila Banks Read the book or see the movie? I'd have to say that I'm a read-the-book kind of gal. Hello everyone! My name is Leila and I wear many hats. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, an elementary teacher by trade, and a bibliophile at heart. I love being a mother and a teacher because I get to instill the love of reading into my own children and the children I teach. Reading is my favorite past time. There's almost nothing better than a good book.

I joined this site because I get to do two things that I love most- reading and writing. So, sit back, relax and enjoy my reviews. You can learn more about me on my Facebook page.
Lisa Ryan My name is Lisa and I am an avid reader, particularly in the non-fiction, personal growth genre. I am reading a little fiction now for a change of pace, but I love personal development. I am an author and English was always my favorite subject in school.

I enjoy reviewing because I love to read, and I also know how much I have appreciated the reviewers that have taken the time to read my book. I want to make a difference and help other authors. You can learn more about me on my website.
Jane Austen Hello, my name is Lorelai and I love to read. I enjoy helping other readers find great new books and helping authors find someone who loves their work. My tastes vary with the weather, from Jane Austen (pictured left) and Jodi Picoult to Michael Crichton and some Stephen King. I can go for a great fantasy series, although not much has reached the level of the original DragonLance.

I tend toward PG material, but when a character's grit is integral to the story, well, then it has to be. The teenager still lives in parts of my mind, so I enjoy young adult books -- with intelligent characters. I never know what's going to pique my interest until I read a page or two.
Marguerite McCurry Hello, my name is Marguerite. I'm the widow of a Guadalcanal Marine/author and have been editing/proofing manuscripts for his small publisher for a couple of years in a wide variety of genres. I have worked as a newspaper reporter, and had shows on radio and TV. I'm also a professional fundraiser who has raised over $100-million for nonprofits.

I hold degrees in journalism, public administration, health education, and am a planned giving specialist. I also help charities with PR issues —“they won’t give to you if they don’t know who you are!” I enjoy reviewing and editing -- it keeps me off the streets at night!
Lela Gilow Buchanan Who am I? Physically I am a mature woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and--gulp-great-grandmother. My name is Lela Buchanan and I am an open-minded, politically conservative woman of faith. My passions are: God, my family, reading and writing. I am my own worst critic but innately, and often unfortunately, carry high expectations for others, too.

I am an award-winning author and avid reader; writing is cathartic for me. I like to review to help other authors with encouragement through an honest lens. You can learn more about me on Facebook.
Agatha Christie Hello! My name is Leslie. I love losing myself in the characters of a good book. I have my favorite authors that I fell in love with as an early reader like Agatha Christie (pictured left). It’s difficult to pick a favorite genre, but if I had to narrow it down to just a few I would say: science fiction, supernatural, romance, all types of mysteries, and cookbooks. I am not the kind of person who has multiple books going at the same time. I throw myself into the books I read, devouring page after page until it is finished. The characters become friends that I can't abandon until I know what becomes of them.

Before I buy books written by an author I am unfamiliar with, I always read several reviews first so I can decide if I will like that particular book or not. I am thrilled at the chance to share my opinion of a book with other curious readers, like myself, but also to hopefully provide helpful feedback for the authors as well.
Lisa Annette McCombs Hello, my name is Lisa Annette McCombs. As a veteran RLA (Reader and Language Arts) teacher of 30 years, I am exposed to a wide variety of YA literature. I love to read and talk about books. In February 2011 I published my first YA novel (Abby) and am near completion of the sequel and its subsequent third installment of the planned trilogy.

I try to introduce at least one new author a month to my classroom library and being a reviewer for Readers Favorite provides an excellent opportunity to introduce new authors to my students. You can learn more about me on Facebook.
Lucrecia Dixon Hi, my name is Lucrecia. I grew up in a small coastal town in Florida and have always had a very vivid imagination. My passion for reading began when I was a child and has grown stronger with every book. I love to get lost in a good story and be swept away to other worlds. Reading is empowering, and can even change your life.

Being a reviewer allows me to give back to authors who give us all so much. I enjoy many genres from both new and established authors.
Lisa Metlak Hello, my name is Lisa Metlak. I am an avid reader and enjoy many different genres. I have found that my sons' books are just as fantastic as the books I choose for myself as an adult. An editor by trade, I find that I can't get enough to read.

I love assisting authors with their manuscripts, but I also love reading for enjoyment. I am thrilled to be able to provide informative reviews for new authors. You can learn more about me on my website.
Mark Twain Hello, my name is Lex and I'm a Texas expatriate living in Germany. I spent most of a 21 year Army career here, as well as 20 years in a 22 year civil service career in Germany. Now I'm a full time indie author with two published books, one of which just received a 5 star review here at Readerss Favorite.

Like most writers, I am also an avid reader, and I started writing and posting reviews about three years ago. I read a variety of genres and have many favorite authors, one of which is Samuel Clemens (pictured left). I've been interested in joining a quality review team for quite some time and was delighted when i met a current Readers' Favorite reviewer who inspired me to join the Readers' Favorite team.
Letty Seidl My name is Letty Seidl. I have been married for 22 years and have four children whom I adore. I am a fifth generation Hispanic American and the oldest of six girls. I have an Associate’s degree and have worked in a variety of areas in my lifetime.

My love of reading began when I was eight years old. I was severely burned and spent a few weeks in the hospital. My aunt would send me a book a day, which I would devour and eagerly await the next. Ever since then, I have been an avid reader and read as many books as I can get my hands on.
Lauraine Snelling Hello, my name is Marianne and I live in Arizona. I am a certified readaholic and love to talk about books I've read. In fact my last job was doing just that. Today I am constantly reading and posting my reviews on my 3 review websites. I enjoy reading many genres, but some of my favorite authors are Lauraine Snelling (pictured left), Karen Kingsbury, and Dee Henderson.

I am excited to be reviewing for Readers Favorite so I can play a small part in helping to introduce readers to new and talented authors. You can learn more about me on my review blog.
Lori Moore What author doesn't also like to read? As recovering workaholic, reviewing books prevents me from sneaking back into my bad habits of working 3 or more jobs simultaneously! An avid reader, Lori lives in Louisville, KY with her husband and their 2 1/2 cats.

Lori holds a ridiculous number of college degrees and is an adjunct Business Professor of Marketing, Management, and Human Resources. You can learn more about her on her website.
M.L. Kilian Hello, my name is Mania. I've written all my life, expressing everything from my opinion to a simple poem for a lost crush. I did it without realizing the potential I had, until blogging became a thing to do. A hobby at first, turned into something I look forward to every day. That was 8 years ago.

Since then I've written and published my first novel and have developed a certain understanding and respect for all authors. I love reviewing works of fiction and sharing how they made me feel.
Maya Angelou Hello, my name is Lisa Miller. I work in education and reading has been a lifelong passion for me. One of my favorite authors is Maya Angelou (pictured left). I have a son graduating from high school, and a daughter graduating from elementary school.

I am happy to be a volunteer reviewer on the Readers Favorite Team and am looking forward to reviewing many books and hopefully helping authors and readers alike.
Lauren Conkling

Hello, my name is Lauren and I'm a recent college graduate with a degree in English. I am a voracious reader and have always loved reading. I read just about anything, though I have a particular love for science fiction and fantasy.

One of the reasons I enjoy being a reviewer is to help other people find excellent books. Whenever I finish a great novel, I inevitably end up telling friends about it because I just have to share the excitement.

Linda W My name is Linda and I'm an avid Christian book reader. I've been reading/reviewing/blogging for over a year now. I love promoting good Christian reads. Some of my favorite authors are: Steven James, James Scott Bell, Randy Singer, Frank Peretti, Dee Henderson, Francine Rivers, DiAnn Mills, Teri Blackstock, Brandilyn Collins, plus many, many more.

I also enjoy crocheting and silk ribbon embroidery. I'm married with one son and we live in the Twin Cities, MN area.
Lynda Williams Hello, my name is Lynda. I'm a web/graphic designer and copy writer/editor, mother of two daughters with two granddaughters and a grandson - and two cats! I've always enjoyed reading, as well as writing and editing. I'm happy to be a part of the Readers' Favorite family, and looking forward to reading YOUR books, giving you that third-party point of view and second set of eyes that all of us creatives need in order to continue to improve our craft!

As Captain Kirk pointed out to us, there's nothing quite like holding a book in your hand to transport you into another world. And even though these days that book may be a tablet, computer, or smart phone, humans will never run out of the need for books!
Lisa Jones Hello, my name is Lisa. I am an author/publisher and am currently working on my second novel, Redemption. I have written lots of children's book but I am focusing on finishing my first triology in The Prophecy saga.

I enjoy being a reviewer and I believe it is important to support other fellow indie authors because getting our book seen is often the hardest task of all.
Lisa Sharpe Lisa Sharpe was born in Baltimore MD. but raised on the beautiful Eastern Shore by her grandmother. Lisa is a fable fanatic and loves to create them in the form of short stories. She is the author of "Tanda's Kin" and is working on her new novel "Venetian Dr.."

As an author herself, Lisa understands the value and importance of quality reviews and enjoys helping her fellow authors with honest feedback about their work.
Marian Krueger My name is Marian Krueger. As an avid reader from the time I first was able to read, I've never been far away from a book my entire life. Always an integral part of my life, books had such a profound on me that my undergraduate degree was in English and I devoured ever book that I had to read for my classes. I later went onto get my Master's in English and still read as much as I can as often as I can.

My favorite book of all time is "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte. A few of my favorite contemporary authors include Anne Tyler and Sophie Kinsella. Today I work as a travel consultant and enjoy the freedom it provides me to travel the world and work on my own writing habit. In between travel and writing I squeeze in as much reading as possible. You can learn more about me on travel blog.
Kristen Proby Hello, my name is Lorena. Words cannot describe how much I want to read but let me try anyway. I discovered books when I was in elementary school and I haven’t stopped reading since then. I like all genres but right now my library is full of romance books. Kristen Proby (pictured left) is one of my favorite authors.

There are books that frustrate me because they don’t happen the way I want them to. This is why I like being a reviewer, to give the writers a piece of my mind. Haha, kidding! Reviewing allows me to show my gratitude to authors and possibly in a small way, help them with their writing careers.
Louise Woods Hello, my name is Louise. I am originally from the United Kingdom. I have lived in the United States for fourteen years. We are a military family and have lived all over the U.S. I am a part time freelance proofreader/editor/creative writer.

I am an avid reader with a very eclectic taste in books. I enjoy genres like Military History, Science Fiction, Autobiographies, Historical Fiction, Paranormal, Romance and everything in between. I have over seven hundred books in my personal collection. I also have young children who love to read a wide range of books from Enid Blyton's classics to the amazing world of Harry Potter.
Lisa Borders Hello, my name is Lisa and I am an avid reader of fiction, mystery/thriller, urban lit and erotica books. I started a blog about ten months ago to showcase my love of books and poetry and it features authors, new books, reviews, giveaways and more. I read and review an average of 3 books a week.

I usually like books in paperback form but now have a Kindle that goes everywhere with me. I have thousands of social networking friends where I post my reviews like Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Shelfari, and my blog.
