You can search for “book reviewers” on Google and Bing, and inundated with subgenres, jobs, and myriad pages to peruse looking for reviewers to read your self-published or indie published book.

Good luck with this route. You are likely to spend hours contacting reviewers without any knowledge of if they are professional, honest, their turnaround time, and if they read your genre. Although this sounds daunting, a better way to find reviewers is to use social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to ask for recommendations from others.

There are many ways to find book reviewers but word of mouth is still the best way to find reviewers for your book.

There are questions you need to ask potential reviewers.

1. Do they read your genre?

2. Are they willing to review your book?

3. Will they post the review where you wish?

4. How long will it take to receive the review?

As an author, you should receive clear answers to these questions.

You should expect an honest review from whomever you have review your book.

There should be no charge for reviewing your book, although there is some contention between authors and reviewers about whether or not reviewers should receive monetary compensation for their time reading and writing reviews.
