Reviews are based on a 5-star rating system and are shared on Amazon and Goodreads.
I always try to give a good review, but, of course, I cannot guarantee it.

If I did not like the book, I will indicate the reason in the review and, regardless, the review will be posted with my rating, good or bad. My reviews are HONEST and are a reflection of what I think as a reader. Some of the factors I consider when reviewing a book are: plot, story, character development, POV, flow, writing style, etc. But the most important factor is whether or not I enjoyed the book. All reviews are posted regardless of rating.

Timeline: Reviews are posted in queue, based on order book was received and read. I also work on many other projects, but I try to get through my list of books as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, I cannot give a definitive timeline. A link will be emailed notifying you that your review has been posted. Please be patient.

He would love to quit his day job and take on entertaining full time. He truly believes he's got what it takes: Talent, top-notch costumes, a beautiful girlfriend, a great car. So what's stopping him? 'Elvis in Wonderland' explores this mysterious world of sideburns and glitter. From the creation of his suits and the constant practicing of his act to the bizarre backstage antics at the competitions and shows; you'll get a insider's look at this fascinating society.' Contact me and I can send you a copy! Thanks! - Marya Kalen
