Book Reviews

Free Book Reviews: I'd love to do a review blog post for you.  Reviews don't cost anything, but they do require a physical book be sent to me so I can review it.  The book will not be returned.

The review post includes telling my readers about your book.  I also link back to your website if you'd like.  All reviews will also receive a mention on my Snug Harbor Facebook page.  I always give my readers an honest review of books. Please feel free to contact me if you're interested in having me do a review for your book.  You can contact me at busybee2@comcast.net
