"I signed up for a BookViral promotion in July 2014. Before then, my new fantasy release Aranya had been selling several books a day and was rated around #40,000 paid overall in the Amazon Kindle store. The effect of BookViral’s promotion was nothing short of a shot in the arm. Aranya shot up to #14 on the paid bestseller list for Fantasy > Sword & Sorcery, and has enjoyed an extended run on the bestseller list since. Many thanks to Bookviral for making this possible! Their service is excellent and friendly, and comes highly recommended. "

"I've been working with Book Viral for years now. They've reviewed all my books to date and I trust them wholeheartedly. Their reviews are thorough and thoughtful. The experience, in general, has been incredibly pleasant and I must say professional. There is plenty of detailed communication with the author throughout the process and a lot of promotion on social media sites. I highly recommend Book Viral's services to fellow authors and look forward to working with them again in the future."

I have turned to Book Viral for my past two books as I trust their review to be detailed, honest, and eye-catching.  They regularly tweet the reviews, which is something I truly appreciate, as I tend to spend my spare time writing rather than promoting myself. Their website looks professional, and communication with them is easy, fast, and very friendly. I anticipate submitting further books to Book Viral in the future.
