Smashwords Authors Lauches Book Review Site

Smashwords author Neil Crab has started a Smashwords book review site called Smashwords Books Reviewed.

The site launched in August and there are currently 5 reviews on the site. This month post is about Fun With Zombies, a Smashwords book by Scott Nicholson, and includes an interview with the author about how zombies are the new vampires.

For authors that would like to submit their work, Crab has some advice. He says to make sure that you don’t insult the work and also recommends that unknown authors not send 1,000 page manuscripts.

His site explains more: “Don’t tell me this is ‘the worst book you’ve ever written, but please review it anyway’, because right there you have killed any enthusiasm I might have had for the project. Send me your best book, and let’s tell people about that. I’m busy every day. I have my own books and career. I’m not your BFF.”
