I'd like to recommend to all authors out there a unique site I found some time ago. It's called Bookvetter and it's designed to give novice authors a chance to get their works reviewed, maybe improved, and ultimately brought to the attention of libraries and book clubs.
But it takes a bit of work. Before your book is vetted, you must first read and review the books of six other authors. Then you can submit your own, which will be read and reviewed by other authors. Afterwards, Bookvetter.com makes the reviews known to libraries and book clubs across the country! If you read and blog like me, that's nothing you don't already do.
