An impartial and credible review is a priceless tool for any author. Whether a book is traditionally published or self-published or an author is a seasoned one working on a series or a novice with a first title, a book review is essential to be competitive in the publishing industry.
Banking on three reputable reviewers from different sides of the publishing industry, Partridge offers the Trifecta Review Service to cater to authors who want an unbiased and professional critique of their work.
Traditional, brutally honest and well-respected.
As with Kirkus Reviews, all Kirkus Indie reviewers are experienced professionals who give honest, impartial evaluations of the titles they receive. The review can either be positive or negative but it is guaranteed that the author receives a fair and unbiased assessment of his book and its potential value in the market. He can then use this to market his book or to catch the attention of a publisher or literary agent.
The author will be getting an approximately 250- to 300-word review that includes a general summary for context and a concise opinion of the book’s strengths and weaknesses.

New player, devoted exclusively to reviewing self-published books.

It offers what self-published authors have long been trying to find: honest, objective reviews written by well-respected critics.
The author will get a 250- to 300-word objective review that considers facts and style as the reviewer deems appropriate. The review will be posted in the BlueInk website unless the author requests otherwise.
