There’s one truth we are loathed to admit. Book reviews no longer sell books like they used to! It‘s a bold statement that needs quantifying and of course there are exceptions, but in the main this post is aimed at the 95% of traditionally published and indie published authors who struggle to get more than a handful of reviews for their books.

Unless you have been on a desert island for the last 10 years you can’t log on to Twitter or Facebook without finding an author tweeting about their latest book. Readers will often make purchasing decisions based upon the strength of a post and it’s rare for an author to make it into the spotlight on the strength of a book alone.

Literary prizes will stimulate sales, but first and foremost should reward great writing.
To simply ask authors if they favour paying for professional book reviews would add little value.

Self-discovery is still a common theme in literary fiction and yet so few authors deliver it with the pacing of a great thriller or the panache of Parker McCoy. He doesn’t reinvent the wheel or revolutionize the genre but in many ways Thinking Me Dead is a remarkable debut and in no small way down to a clutch of superb characters.

A tale told through the eyes of Sallee and the answers she solicits from Ethel, Morony delivers a masterful narrative that is beguiling, flawlessly executed and proves a fine example of New Historical Fiction. With a meticulous ear for dialogue, Morony’s diction is simply exquisite.
Cognition might be the debut release from Jacques St-Malo but he writes with the acerbic pen of a seasoned bestseller. Taking evolving sciences to builds a future world that whilst far from dystopian is none the less alarming as Ethan and Valerie find their destinies converging.

Graye always brings a powerful sense of visual energy and imagination to her stories and The Victoria Lie is no exception. Writing with a refreshing sense of directness her characters seem real and plausible after only a few words. Each being uniformly strong whilst neatly sidestepping the curse of cliché to make them both original and highly endearing.
