Being a traditionally published author, my time is literally money and as someone who’s reviewed books for last 2 years I know how much time-consuming book reviewing can be, so after a lot of thought I’ve decided to charge a fee for my reviews. Mostly because the time I invest in reading your books = the time I won’t be working on my books.
So please bear in mind that I’m not being paid for positive reviews.
Having read and reviewed more than 200 books already I use my experience in reviewing and story-writing to write in-depth and well-structured reviews focusing on the main aspects of the book – Plot, Characters, Writing, Beginning, Ending, Middle, Pacing, Cover Art and Synopsis. My reviews provide a peek into the core of the story along with detailed positives and negatives (if there are any glaring ones) in the stories.
I post these reviews on my Blog – The Reading Bud (3500+ followers), Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Nobel.
I also share the links to the review on my Facebook (1300+ followers), Twitter (1800+ followers), Instagram (800+ followers) and other platforms such as LinkedIn, Google+ and Reddit.
Though I do post unpaid book reviews on my blog, these reviews are not done by me – they’re done by my Review Contributors. Here’s a small table clarifying how paid and free reviews differ:
Paid Reviews Vs Reviews On Request:
|Features||Paid Book Review||Reviews On Request (Free Review)|
|Reviewed by||Author Heena Rathore P.||Review Contributors|
|Cost||Please refer to Cost Sheet||None|
|Delivery Time||7-10 days||3-6 months|
|Platforms||5 platforms||2 platforms|
Needless to say, paid book reviews have numerous unbeatable advantages over the free ones the most important one being the turnaround time. I already do paid reviews for Websites, Magazines, and Universities along with a handful of individual clients ( both authors and publishers.)

Please read my Review Policy for the free book reviews.
As a reviewer, if I am paid for the reviews it is only because I cannot afford to my lose my precious time over other’s books when I have to write my own. All reviews are based on my own opinions and are not influenced by the author, publisher or publicist who pays for the reviews.
