Calling All Authors: Have Your Book Reviewed!



Dear Author,

Are you brave enough to have your book HONESTLY reviewed?

We publish genuine book reviews every Wednesday and Saturday (Australian time). If you are interested in receiving an HONEST review for your newly launched and/or backlist book, please let us know by leaving a reply below. The general turnaround time is two to four weeks, on a first-come-first-serve basis.

For international authors and/or those on a budget, please send us a PDF copy of your book via the email address provided in our response. However, if you feel like supporting the national post office in your country (and Australia Post, of course), please send a copy of your print book to: Attn: Christine Sun, Voices under the Sun, P.O. Box 218, Belgrave, Victoria 3160, Australia. Kindly include your email address so we can confirm the book’s arrival.

We believe in supporting fellow authors and providing genuine feedback that helps you and us to improve our writing and publishing capabilities. However, we do not go out of our way to patronise you. While we will praise the strength and unique characteristics of your writing, we also also provide constructive criticism on how it can be improved (that is, IF there is anything to be improved).

Finally, if you like the review we write for your book, please consider sponsoring us. You can buy us a coffee so we can read until two o’clock in the morning, buy us a pizza so we can avoid cooking dinner, or buy us half a print book to support an indie bookstore. More details are listed in our “Sponsorship” page, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely, Christine Sun, “Voices under the Sun”.

    I would like to send you a free copy of the book from Smashwords. I can send you a coupon so you can get the book “Bad Memories” for free in PDF or 5 other e-forms. I would also like to see about having the book translated & sold overseas

    Hello Ian, I am currently reading your “A Companion to the Future” (which I downloaded last year but didn’t manage to get to it), and will be happy to read “Bleak” as well. A PDF version will be fine. Thank you. Cheers, Christine Sun.

    Hello Darrel, Many thanks for your message. It’s good to meet a fellow Aussie! Having taken a good look at your website and your Amazon page, I am interested in reading your book and understanding more about your philosophy re fatherhood. I have translated books in the area of parenthood and family education, but the only one re fatherhood I have done is a fiction (“Courageous” by Randy Alcorn, adapted from film of the same title, I have left this message on your website as well, with contact details there. Thanks again. Cheers, Christine Sun.

    Hi 🙂

    My name is Shaun and I’m an author, just wondering if you would consider reviewing my book in exchange for a free ebook copy?

    Here is a link to my fantasy novel (Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith) on amazon, so you can have a look and decide if it may or may not be something you would be interested in reading –

    Thanks for taking the time to consider my enquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
