Review Policy: The KBR does not receive payment for our reviews, nor do we review print. We receive digital copies in exchange for a fair and honest reviews. If a reviewer can’t get into your work, believes the book needs work, and/or is not eligible for a 3-star rating or higher, he or she is not required to write a review. *** We do not review Erotica.
- Scroll through our list of awesome reviewers below and contact ONE (1) reviewer that best matches the genre of your book. (You can try another until you find a reviewer who is interested).
- Write a formal review request to only one reviewer. Include a brief synopsis, the author’s name, the title of the book, and a link to the book in the Amazon Kindle store. If we do not receive a formal request, or if you are sending out blanket requests we will not review the book. Make sure the subject of your email is: KBR Review Request.
- Include a digital copy of your book in the format that works best according to the reviewer’s specifications.
- If the reviewer you contact communicates that they are not interested, feel free to try another one.
- DO sign up for our author emails so you do not miss upcoming events, contests, and promotions.
What to expect:
- Wait patiently; we get many requests for reviews a week. Our reviewers are not obligated to review your work. If they don’t get into your book, you may not see a review. NO HATE MAIL PLEASE. We all know how subjective literature is. You can always contact another reviewer. Please allow between two to four weeks to hear back from the reviewer. If you do not hear back within that time frame, you are free to contact another reviewer.
- Expect an honest review. When we opened our doors to reviewing, we changed our policy to accept any small press/indie author no matter how many reviews he or she has received. So be kind to the reviewers and be open to accepting their opinion of your work.
- Do not contact the reviewer after he or she receives your ebook. He or she will post your review on their schedule. They are busy people too and don’t deserve to be badgered. (The KRR only post our reviews on Amazon, but the reviewer is free to post the review under their name at any site. After all, the review is their intellectual property.)
- Feel free to add KBR reviews, or a snippet, to your “product description page” or website. This is our gift to you for allowing us to read your work.

I enjoy reading non-fiction books. If the book is written well, I can generally read through 100 pages quickly. I love information books or “how to” type literature. I have an interest in songwriting and playing the guitar and I’ve recently taken more of an interested in eating healthy. I love to walk for exercise, fish for fun, worship Christ, build websites and make money on the Internet. The kindle book I recently published is about coping with alcoholics.

I love reading and watching movies, and started reviewing after my wife tired of my detailed and protracted post-read/watch analyses. I own a Kindle Fire, so I accept Kindle formatting only. I try to keep things balanced and back up negative opinions with clear examples (avoiding spoilers where possible). My favourite authors are Raymond Chandler, James Ellroy, Hunter Thompson, Michael Connelly and James Lee Burke. I enjoy reading Crime / Mystery / Suspense / Thriller / Counterculture (e.g. Hunter Thompson). When submitting, title the email: “KBR Review Request”, and send your formal request to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve traveled all over the world, been to the top of the Eiffel Tower, to the Devil’s Anvil in Saudi Arabia, on top of the highest mountain in the Middle East and the lowest in the USA. After spending a lifetime working in or with the military I finally had made enough to sit back and do as much (or as little) as I wanted to and since I had always been an avid reader the jump to making it one of my major pastimes was easy. I’ve read many different genres over the years but stumbled into Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy after many years of reading mostly books in the Fantasy genre. I wanted a good story about people of action and passion that did not always end up in some tragedy. When submitting primarily M/F – PNR/UF stories, title the email: “KBR Review Request”, and send a formal request to

I’m an English Language, Literature and Film Studies teacher and recently published a contemporary romance. In my Kindle reading I want fast paced very romantic romance, snappy humour and a bit of subtle sex. Gratitous swearing will offend me (what can I say I’m Canadian) so I need a warning its there, but I will persevere if it tapers out and the story and writing is good enough to let me get past it, but if there is a lot of swearing or crudity in a book I probably won’t keep reading unless it’s awesome writing. I’ve written a number of film reviews for local papers and will look for the best in your work. I’m an avid reader of romance. I prefer kindle or kobo format.
