Testimonials

The Reading Desk was unbelievably helpful and easy to work with from the initial communication. Like any good company in 2018, their social media network is extensive and active. After reaching out on Twitter, everyone at The Reading Desk were courteous and prompt. Their generous and honest review of our work helped us gain exposure, confidence, and new readers in the process. We attribute our quick uptick in sales directly to their positive review.

The reading desk is a phenomenal website for authors! They do exactly what writers need to get their stories out there. Not only do they give you a 100% genuine and honest review, they make the process a pleasurable experience. My experience in working with Peter was amazing and I highly recommend it to any authors that are looking to have their stories brought to light!! 5 Stars across the board for “The Reading Desk!”

Michael Dineen – Author of Suburban Gangsters

The Reading Desk is the best organization to ask for a book review. They have integrity and their insights are amazing! Their reviews of my novellas always provide me with constructive criticism which helps me become a better writer. The review of my novella Cash Money made me a better writer immediately. If you need editorial reviews, the first place to send your work is The Reading Desk. Don’t hesitate, send your book today!

Policy Statement

The Reading Desk is committed to providing high quality, personalised, professional services to authors and other service providers in the book industry.

Our promotion package has been designed following considerable engagement with published and Indie authors. We recognise the package offers considerable impact for the promotion of a book but it must be delivered in full, to maximise its sales impact.

There may be costs associated with promotional activities but these do not include undertaking a book review or posting that review on other sites. Any costed items must be paid in advance of work undertaken.

If we review a book that we consider less than a 3 star rating we will provide the author with the opportunity to terminate any further activity.

All material produced by The Reading Desk will be copyrighted under the provision that it may be used for personal or business opportunities, as long as The Reading Desk is recognised as the source of the content.

We have the right to reject any enquiry without reason.
