WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
Sarah Cullen, Carmen Ellis, Children’s Book Authors
“Eve, the Barefoot Librarian provided us with an excellent service. Being first-time authors, it is a challenge to get your foot in the door and we were really pleased with the process. Not only was it a well thought out and wonderful review, but Eve is lovely and very prompt with her communication. Thank you for a job well done.”
Sherrill S. Cannon, Children’s Book Author, Poet
“I have entered the Reader Views Literary Awards Reviewer’s Choice program each year since I discovered the program. The Awards themselves are great for marketing, but the way that this program is especially meaningful is that they use children to review the children’s books. A child reviewer is very unique, since they evaluate the book’s appeal to actual children…the readers!!”
Eric Ray, Author of Mr. Kind Stories
“Sheri Hoyte, Reader Views, and Reader Views Kids continue to provide an exceptional and cherished avenue to absolutely genuine analysis and commentary from those that matter most. Her willingness to make a personal connection with authors and readers alike manifests itself in a symposium of literature that can be depended on. As an indie author, it is platforms like these that keep the dream alive. Always be smiling.”
Nan Evenson, Children’s Book Author
“Reader Views has been a delightful find as an author. Eve, the Barefoot Librarian, and Sheri/Susan are professional and competent. It is wonderful to know that they do what they say they will do, are clear communicators and support my little picture book wherever they can.”
