Hi authors and publishers!
We're writing you today to tell you about an awesome new service for authors. Worldwind Virtual Book Tours (and TSR) now offer a Review Query service for an affordable fee. If you want an easier way to garner review for your books without any effort, this is it! Save time and get reviews!
This is how it works:
Once you sign-up for this service and we receive your listing information, we email our list of bloggers to notify them that the book is up for review. We also list the book on a review site of networked reviewers. (Think NetGalley, except this is a site that includes all review products, not just books.) As of now, authors and publishers must be be willing to offer free review copies one of several ways. 1. Via Smashwords coupon codes. 2. Be willing to gift ebook copies through retailers and/ or 3. Mail paperbacks. Note that the author is only required to do one of the 3 options. The reason we can't hand out raw ebook files is because of the review forum we are using. Sorry, but for now there is no way around this.
As review requests come in, we will approve reviewers based on their past review rate (which we will discuss when you sign-up) and distribute review copies. As reviews come in, we will send you a bi-weekly update. Your book will be available to reviewers for 30 days. In other words, we will be taking requests and distributing copies for up to 30 days. We will continue, however, to send you review updates up to 2 weeks following your review period, as some reviewers take longer.
Note that we will request reviewers complete their review of your book within 4-6 weeks, however, reviews are the sole responsibility of the blogger/reviewer and we have no control over them or their reviews.
Now... for the big question. How much does it cost?
*sign up for two months/books and get each month or book for $70!

"Not All Americans Are Racist" is an honest, thought-provoking account of one black woman's experience with racism after she came from Haiti at a young age and later on as she rose through college to get an education. Weaver is objective, not only pointing out the prejudice she experienced, but also the help and support she received from non-racist white individuals. Her decision to look back and write this 46-page essay was sparked by recent events, such as the latest cases in the news with Darren Wilson, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner.
As a human being, I found Weaver's account both compelling and eye-opening. I hate injustices of all kinds and some of her experiences were painful to read. It's hard to come to terms with the fact that, still in this era, some people hate others or are prejudiced just because of the color of the other person's skin.
Weaver touches on various subjects, such as Jim Crow and the Civil Rights movement, President Obama, social issues, among others. "Not All Americans Are Racist" would be worthy of high-school class discussions, and Weaver includes discussion questions for students at the end of the book.
What I liked about this book is that it is ultimately positive and offers hope for the future. Above all, the author's love for this country sparkles through. Most appropriately, Weaver ends the book with an open appeal to the young people of America.
