How I rate books

So, at the end of each review, there’ll be a whole bunch of numbers. This page is used to help you understand these numbers.

I’ll rate the book in 5 catergories:
Cover Art – how enticing the cover is and how well it attracts the average reader to pick the book up (because a lot of people actually do judge a book by its cover)
Plot – this catergory determines how well thought out the plot is, and how it flows. Points are deducted if the plot is non-existent, or if it doesn’t occur until the last 100 pages or so.
Characters – depending on how well I can relate to the characters, or how well they develop and their relationships with each other.
Writing – this judges the writing style of the text: whether it flowed smoothly, or whether it was incredibly difficult to get through, and everything in between.
Level of Interest – this is simple, it’s just a scale of how ‘into’ the book I was.

Each will be judged on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest, and 5 being the highest. They’ll be added together, then doubled (to make an even 50), and then divided by 10 to give a total score out of 5, which is my overall score for the book.

I hope it’s not too confusing for you. šŸ™‚

    I’d like to introduce you to a great new science fiction novel, a really exciting book called Expedition Beyond written by a completely unknown writer named Roger Bagg. The book is being published as an ebook by The Fiction Studio, an innovative publisher based in Stamford, CT. The publisher has produced a limited edition, beautifully produced hardcover, strictly to help readers like you discover this novel. We’d like to send you a copy of this book and ask you to consider reading it. It’s a terrific novel, with an unusual premise, a great story full of surprises, and well drawn characters.

    Please send me your mailing address. I will send you a copy of the book at once. And I also promise not to chase you for a review or try to market the book to you in any way. I hope you will want to read it. And if you like the book as much as I did, I know you’ll want to talk about it.

    Thanks for your time and attention.
    Deirdre Doran
