Do you know about the New Book Review?

I have been volunteering on the blog, and also on Sharing with Writers. There are three of us. One adds reviews that are submitted, one matches authors and readers for ethical free reviews, and I make the social sharing images. I also write some posts for the blogs. All are owned by a different Carolyn.

Authors may have reviews placed on the site free, and also, by following the directions at this link. Also, authors may get ethical free reviews by contacting Lois W. Stern and following these directions.

and an editing advice blog.
Submit…but please follow the rules. I want this to work for all–efficiently, so…
Read carefully, please. Carolyn Howard-Johnson will help you to post a review about your book, children’s to adults, indie or traditional!
The New Book Review lets you find new books–books judged by their content and not their covers.

Sharing with Writers and Readers lets you peek inside the publishing industry–everything from travails with Oprah to places where you can get to know authors better (like their blogs!)

The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor is where you get your editing, formatting, grammar and even craft questions answered.

Ethical Free Reviews for Authors from The New Book Review

Authors may have book reviews placed on the New Review Site for free by following the directions.  Also, authors may get ethical free reviews by contacting Lois W. Stern on the same site and following her directions. Contact me for your Twitter and Pinterest banners.


These are just some of the books I self-published or helped others self-publish using the templates included in the self-publishing course.


Self-publishing? Are you interested in writing and selling books yourself? If you like learning and writing, you might like the course I made with everything I learned helping other people self-publish.


Review by Castle View —  Carolyn Wilhelm recorded every step she went through while she was self-publishing her books and has created a course for others who want to know what’s involved, step by step for Self-Publishing from the Very, Very Beginning.

Each of these main sections has several subsections that go into easy-to-understand detail. Carolyn shows you what to do right on the screen so you have the option to split-screen your own screen and follow along as you watch the lessons.


Watch the video and to see Tristan and Kalli read one of Carolyn’s self-published books aloud, Alex Asks About Auntie’s Airplane Day.
