The Indie Ebook Review Site is opening its doors

Over the past few weeks I’ve been having a think and it centers on the name of the blog. The Indie Ebook Review Site seems to suggest that all genres are accepted for submission. I wish I could do that. But to be frank submitting a romance book would just not be fair on you - I don't like them and they would likely get a review that would show that opinion. Yet the name doesn't suggest that I only review Science fiction, fantasy, horror, paranormal and supernatural. Either the name has to change, or I have to find a way to expand the genres reviewed on this site.

Also as regular readers will know I suffered from a serious illness from the beginning of December and it has only been in the last couple of weeks I feel like myself again. During this time my production rate for reviews has been poor (I'll be honest there) and I haven't been able to source large amounts of guest authors. Also because now I have a published book out, my time has to be divided more and more with promotional activities and writing the next one.

At the same time I want to continue to produce excellent content and support other indie authors through this blog. That is why I have decided in trying to recruit additional reviewers to help me deliver this. I will be upfront, this is not a paid role, it is purely for the love of reading anyone should do this (and for some of the promotional benefits I am allowing).

If you are interested in this, please have a look at the role details below

The Role Responsibilities:

·         To review one book a month in The Indie Ebook Review Site’s standard format.
·         To liaise with authors over their review submissions
·         Not to promote yourself on the blog except in authorised blog posts.

Role Benefits:

·         Staff bio on blog with links
·         Allowed to post 2 guest posts per month on any publishing topic. Guest posts can include bio and links
·         Inclusion in the weekly news updates for staff (to include all blog posts produced by staff on their own blogs / other blogs, any news, etc)

I hope that some of you will consider this. If you feel you could do this then please send me an e-mail with the following details:

·         Name
·         Genres you like to read
·         Blogging experience (please note blogging experience not necessary)

Then I will send a short written interview to get to know you better and make sure that your style will fit in with the blog.

I hope that some of you will be interested in this opportunity.
