Hi, I am a consultant and author, and I write a business-of-law column for Forbes. The gross majority of my pieces are interviews with heads of industry – mainly law firm chairs.

I have 1 free ebook promo coming 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. Price is negotiable.
