The Trifecta Review Service


The power of a trustworthy recommendation cannot be underestimated. All you have to do is watch book sales skyrocket when a well-respected public figure vouches 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.

AuthorHouse has once again broken boundaries by providing you this opportunity with our Trifecta Review. Have your book critiqued by three of the industry’s renowned reviewers who will provide an honest, unbiased assessment of your work.

A seal of approval from any one of these professionals can create the kind of attention your book needs. Elevate your book’s integrity with the Trifecta Review:

The Trifecta Review $3,499

  • Kirkus Indie - Standard Service

    Having been a fixture in the industry for more than 80 years, Kirkus Reviews—known as the world’s toughest book critics—is a bastion of literary excellence, operating as gatekeepers that assists readers, booksellers, libraries, online retailers, and library-service companies in determining which books to sell, stock, or include in their databases. Originally catering only to traditional imprints, it has now expanded and includes in its offerings Kirkus Indie, giving self-published authors access to the same unparalleled expert evaluations.

    You’ll be getting an approximately 250- to 300-word review that includes a general summary for context and a concise, unbiased opinion of the book’s strengths and weaknesses.

  • Clarion Review-for-Fee

    Foreword Magazine, a trade journal established in 1998 with the tagline “Reviews of Good Books Independently Published,” brings to center stage upcoming books from small, independent, or university presses, as well as self-published books, giving these books the platform to attract the kind of media attention that books from large traditional publishing houses usually get.

    You’ll be getting a 450-word comprehensive critique of the writing, plot, pacing, characters, packaging, and other elements that will influence potential book buyers. The book will be rated with one to five stars based on excellence.

  • Blueink Basic Review

    Blueink Reviews, the brainchild of an internationally known literary agent and an award-winning former book review editor, was created with a specific purpose: to respectfully and professionally find and celebrate the best of self-published books. With their vast and in-depth experience and background in traditional publishing, both have put together a roster of carefully vetted, independent critics who will present authors with thorough, honest, and objective appraisals.

    You’ll be getting a 250- to 300-word objective review that considers facts and style as the reviewer deems appropriate. The review will be posted in the BlueInk website unless the author requests otherwise.
