Reviews given

Dear fellow authors,
In view of the reluctance of reviewers in general to accept work currently being submitted by others, I volunteer my services as an entirely impartial person and put on my critical hat on your behalves. I now know where this offer is going and will continue to give it my best shot.
     To start with, I have no intention of building up a stockpile of books, novellas and stories to be ploughed through, which many reviewers claim to already possess. Instead, I will see how much of anything "grabs me by the eyeballs" as I progress. The free read offered by Kindle has indicated to me that there is so much dross on the shelves that the merits of any story can soon be gleaned. BUT, I learnt my lesson long ago not to judge anything too artificially: I was on the verge of dumping The Lords Of The Rings after reading the first eighty pages and am unlikely to repeat that potential mistake.
     If I find that an obvious mistake is being made by a fellow author, I will tell that person confidentially where I think they are going wrong. The observations I make will wherever possible be substantiated by another person.
     If a full or summary review is justified, it will be passed to the author first, for their approval. Be warned, I am contemplating designing a rating system that is unlike that used by Kindle. No one, in my estimation deserves a full 5 stars unless they are in the same league as Clive Cussler, Harold Robbins, C J Sansom, Conn Iggulden, Dickens, Jules Verne, Raymond Feist, Bram Stoker and the like.
     My standard of writing can be judged from this blog and entries on Amazon. Further books are awaiting publication.
    If you wish to respond, Manuscripts can be submitted as email attachments to
Kindle, docx or pdf formats would be preferred in non-edit mode.
Best wishes and good luck,
Terry Tumbler
