I have 1 free ebook promo coming up and I'm starting to look for VAs to help me secure book reviews. I'm looking for 10 five-star positive book reviews for the book to increase the BSR of my book. Some points to note about each of the review you post for those whom you exchange books with: - Each review should be at least 3-4 lines long at the very minimal. - Review should have proper, appropriate content and is written coherently. - Review should have the main keyword at least twice. - Information in the review must relate to the book. A total of 10 reviews are required for this job. This is an ad-hoc job which allows me to gauge who I can work with on a long term basis doing kindle publishing work. Let me know if you're interested. Take note that the price is a lump sum payment for 10 reviews. Price is negotiable.

Hi there. I'm looking for a few beta readers for my non-fiction/self-help book. I already had it proofed and edited and now I'm looking for a few others to provide the following: 1) choice of book title (I have several in the running) after you read through the content. The last reader started off with one title and then changed her mind by the end. I did the same. 2) if you think the chapters are ordered so that the reader stays engaged and it all seems logical. 3) if you think there is enough of the male/female point of view comments 4) if you can see anything missing or that doesn't seem to belong 5) I want to be sure to give them lots of good content but also balance the fact that the book is really just a lead generation for my blog and the products/services I promote. I want to make sure this seems ok to the reader. (Considering the book will be under $4-5.) 6) then any other comment that comes to mind as you review it. The book is about 46K length, however some of that...

Hello! I am looking for someone who can skim/scan (or read fully) business books and put the key points into actionable steps for business owners. I have put an example below from another summary I found, but I want it to be even shorter and more to the point. Take principles from the books and turn them into action items for leaders in a simple one-pager. I will accept multiple submissions this time to find the right freelancer or two to have lots of recurring work. The title I want you to start with is Start with Why by Simon Sinek. In your cover letter, please tell me your favorite color so I know you read fully the directions. Example: Good To Great- Jim Collins Collins examines a broad spectrum of companies that have positioned themselves for success. He starts to dissect common patterns and formulas for making the leap from good to great. What ingredients go into that special sauce of greatness? How exactly does that happen? It’s not just one smart business...
