Who Wants to Help Launch a Book Review Blog?

Remember back during the early part of the COVID-19 shutdown when we were supposed to start side gigs or learn new skills with our copious free time? I mainly spent my time avoiding bankruptcy and rebuilding my business, but I did start a couple new projects, including one that I could use help with.

I am trying to launch a book review blog that focuses on books for indie author (business, marketing, editing, etc). To put it another way. this blog will focus on the non-fiction books that authors might read to advance their career.

I think there’s a need for this blog, and I would really like to make it happen. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the time and energy to do this entirely by myself.

I need your help.

Would you like to help launch a new book review blog?

I already have an initial draft of the review guidelines, and I have a list of books to be reviewed. What I need next are reviewers, and possibly someone to help edit and publish the reviews.

What do you think? Interested?

    I may be able to do some reviews when I have time. I’d be happy to also do editing of reviews and publishing if it’s on WordPress.

    My current review site: https://reviewbee.errorfree.me/
