The big question: Do you really value readers?
Seriously think about that question.
Do you believe most readers will only pay attention to your story or subject and miss any editing errors?

"A published book should be virtually error free from misspellings, misplaced punctuation, and poor grammar. It is impossible for me to overlook, and it becomes such a distraction that I can barely focus on the story."
Kerri isn’t some big wig editor or guru in the publishing industry. She’s an everyday reader. A real woman who expects a lot from the books she reads.
In our society everything is pulling us in a multitude of directions all at once. Several things compete for our attention. Our time is on high demand. Thats why, when we give our time to something, we expect a good return for it.
The point of Unbound Reviews is not to replace editors, but to encourage authors like you to consider readers as intelligent people capable of spotting errors.
Yes we are just readers, but sloppy books with formatting errors, misspellings and rushed plots bother us too.
Here’s what you need to be approved for this service:
You must agree to provide me with one digital copy of your manuscript prior to approval. This allows me to review your content, verify that it is in line with our beliefs and make certain that it’s a good fit for the CWA Review Crew. You can email a digital copy to me (email@example.com).
To qualify, you must have undergone previous professional editing. If you need referrals to quality editors we can give them. I will ask the name of your editor in the application form. Our goal is not to work against these professionals, but for you.
