pic_bmp_promo2Nicole: Thanks for the nice work. I’ve had all positive reviews, but some groups (Kirkus) just seemed to skim the book and didn’t really portray it properly. Your review certainly indicates a thorough read and evaluation. Much appreciated! Professional, thorough, objective and most helpful in reviewing and promoting my book. Out of 5 services used, Pacific Book was the most complete and responsive organization. I highly recommend for all authors before considering other sources.
Bob Mack Peak, Writer & Producer
Rob-Riley-225x300Your book review immediately energized my publisher’s marketing efforts. Several people bought a book “on the spot” after reading the review, and it is being posted at myriad blogs and other locations. It helped seal the deal for a book signing with the top local mystery bookstore. All this was done within the first 10 days after I received the review. I can’t thank the people at Pacific Book Review enough for their most capable work.”
Rob Riley, Author & Detective
as00061Dear Nicole, I appreciate the insightful and marketable review. Please extend my thanks to Ms. Brown-Gilbert for her services. I will be in touch once the book is released (within the next few weeks). It was a pleasure working with Pacific Book Review, you have a personal approach that makes a customer feel they are in good hands.”
