Union Square Review was born out of the realization that paid book reviews are too expensive for what they have become: a plot summary with a sentence or two of opinion. We've priced our reviews to be significantly more affordable than the leading review services (Kirkus, Clarion, Blue Ink, IndieReader) while also providing the author with the reviewer's full scoring rubric (rather than a simple synopsis of the story), which allows the author to fully understand the assessment behind the review. But perhaps more importantly, our reviews benefit authors by providing direct connection to thousands of book clubs and actual placement into brick and mortar bookstores, something that no other book review service can offer.
All reviews pass through our rigorous proofing process, led by our Managing Editor, who holds a PhD in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
Top quality reviews with more detailed feedback, built-in access to bookstores and book clubs, at an affordable price. This is Book Reviews Reinvented.
