If you are interested in having your book considered for review please scroll down, fill out the form below and include as much information as possible. Please know submission does not guarantee a review. All work is judged independently, on its own merit, and only after it has been read. I do not skip, skim, or speed read. My Mission Statement explains my thoughts on reviews and star rankings. I Share It Straight.
Please include as much information about your book as possible.

I apologize for any inconvenience.
I am always excited to hear from authors. Each book is an opportunity for a brand
new adventure for our Views visitors. So, please do not hesitate to fill out this simple form.
There's a limited number of hours that I can dedicate to reading the books submitted for review. It is further limited during the Holiday Season, Spring Break and one month during Summer Break. I post notices reminding everyone of the days, weeks, whatever that I will not be reviewing. (Of course, the advance notifications are NOT posted when my absence is unplanned health related issues. (I do get a message up ASAP when these events cause an interruption.)
Therefore, it is important that you send the request as soon as possible so that we can place your book on the schedule. Even if it will be a while before you actual ship the book, we can get it on the upcoming schedule. And don't forget, we accept many previously released titles. It has helped lots of authors over the years, to send in older titles prior to the release of a new one.
Fill it out, hit send and I'll get back to you soon.
RJ's Views. . .Sharing it straight
I do NOT receive any form of payment or incentive for my opinions. My reviews are 100% original, honest, unbiased, and voluntary. I am not employed by, nor do I have any monetary interest in any publisher, manufacturer or seller, including Amazon. I am not, nor have I ever been a member of a "review club," "coupon clubs," or any other type of reverse refund agreement club. Any product I have purchased and choose to review is done without any type of incentive. I accept a limited number of courtesy books and products each month for review. Those requesting a reiew understand, upfront, that the cost of the book or product, as well as, all shipping charges are soley their responsiblity. All those requesting a review do so with the knowledge that a full review is voluntary, will be posted unedited by any other party and no request for changes will be accepted. I will however update my opinions if there are changes in a products performance, appearance, longevity, etc. Any information a consumer would find valuable will be added to the original post. (Once live, the original review will not be changed - only amended.)
I review books, products and services for one reason - in hopes consumers might find the information contained in my reviews helpful when making their purchase choices. I have been "Sharing It Straight" for ten years. Those seeking a cookie-cutter, canned review do NOT send their products to RJ's Views.
