The power of a trustworthy recommendation cannot be underestimated. All you have to do is watch book sales skyrocket when popular public figures vouch for a book. In the publishing world, credible endorsements are hard to come by, handed out only by the literati of the industry. However, what was once only accessible to writers under traditional publishing is now within the reach of our authors. A seal of approval from any one of these professionals can create the kind of attention your book needs.
With so many new books being released every year, reviews are one of the best ways to stand out from the crowd. But how can you get your book reviewed without knowing someone in the business? And with bookstores cracking down on reviews from family and friends, where can you get respected, impartial voices to weigh in on your work?
AuthorHouse’s Review Duo service helps solve this problem with reviews from two renowned and reputable reviewing bodies: The Pacific Book Review and The US Review of Books (USRB). Two options are offered to best suit your needs:

Credibility is an essential attribute that only a book review can provide. Reviews are a wonderful way to generate interest in your book because what trendsetters are to consumers, book reviewers are to readers. Book lovers rely on the opinion of experts to determine what new releases to consider reading or purchasing. Getting a favourable evaluation gives your book that sought-after stamp of approval every author wants.
In the publishing industry, one of the most renowned and respected book reviewers that give that stamp of approval is Kirkus Reviews.
Touted as the world’s toughest critic, Kirkus Reviews holds an eighty-year-old reputation of drawing the mainstream industry’s attention to the best new releases. With the recent upsurge in self-published releases, this publication has expanded its reach with its Kirkus Indie program, which gives self-published authors the same opportunity to acquire unbiased reviews of their work. Kirkus reviews are trusted and authoritative critiques created by experts who are selected for their knowledge base and mastery in certain fields.
AuthorHouse has collaborated with Kirkus Reviews to create a service that will not only help authors gain honest book reviews but also a chance to get their work in front of literary agents, publishers and readers:
