About Us

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 one sentence of opinion or, as some call it, the "money quote." 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.

Additionally, through our partnership with DartFrog Books, all books with a high enough review score are eligible for discounted or no-cost marketing through bookstores, book clubs, bloggers and bookstagram networks.
