Publisher Wants Manuscript Readers!
Word Keepers, Inc. is a Northern Colorado based Small Press Publisher looking for individuals to participate in “Readers Reviews” of manuscripts not-yet-under contract and/or just recently published.
Readers Reviews serve as a valuable tool to help authors who want to connect directly with readers before or immediate after their books are published. For the author, Readers Reviews provide a way to hear directly from readers during a critical time of manuscript development. These reviews also offer comment directly from book buyers. For the publisher, the reviews affirm that readers are responsive to the author’s book. And to the readers, the reviews serve as a way to contribute to the literary development of an author’s career … we all know readers’ feedback is instrumental in the development and appeal of books.
Word Keepers, Inc. is looking for manuscript/book readers for the following book genres being considered for publication or just recently published:
- Ordinary, Extraordinary Stanley by Diane Kress Hower (children’s fiction) Canine counseling
- Way of the Warrior Queen: Mental Training for Girl Fighters by Terrie Schauer (nonfiction) Self-help; personal growth; female athletes; spiritual
- A Stable Husband by David Quijano (nonfiction) Humor; Self-help for relationships; personal growth; horse ownership
Readers will be given a copy of the manuscript, along with a review questionnaire. Readers commit to reading the manuscript and completing the questionnaire. If the work is published, the “Reader” will be listed by name in the Acknowledgments by the author and the publisher.
If you would like to contribute to the process of creating a published book, please contact us for further details. You, the reader, after all, are an author’s best critic.
A customer [writers/authors/readers] is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.
