Did I tell you about the new place I found to write book reviews? The Uncustomary Book Review site impressed me when I submitted a review of Call of A Coward by Marcia Moston, because they sent it back with multiple corrections and revision ideas!
I loved seeing all those red marks and margin comments. It meant that a real person took the time to help me express myself better, I felt honored and respected. UBR pays for the book reviews and they want them to sound like a conversation, not the typical dry book report style that we normally expect from a book review. A snippet:
"Moston never gives the impression that the sacrifices she made turned her into a better Christian than the people she served, either in the United States or in a foreign country. Reading her book made me feel like we could be good friends. In fact, she sounds exactly like most of the people I have in my life.”
If you'd like to read my review and wander around the site, I warn you that you may not look up for another few hours! It is a fun and lively place to see how others experience the books they read.
