Authors Writing in a Second Language (AWISL) reviews books of many genres: mystery, horror, humorous, historical, fantasy, etc. Some of the books have been purchased by me, some have been given to me by the authors in exchange for an honest review.

All reviews will be posted at AWISL, as well as on Amazon and Goodreads. The author's Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, and Twitter links will be added to the review by the author's request.

If a book by a newbie indie author is received in exchange for an honest review, then Authors Writing in a Second Language WILL NOT be posting a review of less than THREE STARS. This place is meant to support newbie indie authors, not tear down their books. If I feel I cannot give the book at least three stars, I will inform the author. If the author still wants me to post my negative review, I will do that. My negative reviews will not be offensive or rude. I will post negative reviews without the author's prior consent only to those books that I have purchased myself.

AWISL does not receive monetary compensation for reviewing books. Any such offer (as well as review swaps or paying for 5-star reviews) will be declined.

If you want AWISL to review your book, please fill out the form below.

Please, keep in mind that I will not be able to read everything I receive. If you do not hear from me in 72 hours, then I wasn't able to read your book. Try submitting your book in a month.

P.S. I don't read romance.
