Reader Views is an Austin, Texas, based company. We started in late December 2005 as a book review service. Shortly after our inception, we extended our services to include a variety of services for authors such as book publicity services, editing, author interviews, literary book awards, as well as coaching.
Reader Views Kids launched in early 2007. This came from the realization that adults write the kids books, adults decide which kids books are to be published, and then adults end up reviewing the books. Something was wrong with this picture! So, we gathered up a team of kids and here we are.
One effective and popular way of reaching your reading audience is through internet radio interviews. Since people have less time to read, yet want more information, why not give them the opportunity to “hear” about your book.
Introducing Books to Libraries, Bookstores, Media, Reviewers, Bloggers, and Readers. First Chapter Plus publishes and distributes a monthly e-catalog, which includes the first chapters of print and digital books, and mp3 clips of audio books plus all the essential information. Let us expose your current or upcoming book to our interested subscribers.
The Reader Views Reviewers Choice Annual Literary Awards program was established to honor writers who self-published or had their books published by a subsidy publisher, small press, university press, or independent book publisher. Each entry comes with a complimentary review as well as promotion on our blogs, social media sites and in our newsletter.

While I disagree with most generalizations, I would like to open this blog post with one of the rare few I agree with: most avid readers don’t like going anywhere without a book. I am certainly not an exception. There…
“It was great working with Reader Views, and they did a great job promoting the book. Interviews were done professionally, the reviews were expertly written, and everything was published in a timely manner. I’m looking to forward to working with Reader Views when my next book comes out next year.”

“I’d like to thank Reader Views for their dedicated support of indie authors. Their Literary Awards Program is a valuable marketing tool and I always appreciate having a prompt and independent review of a new release along with the chance to enter a respected contest. Looking forward to sending along my next book!”
“I’ve enjoyed working with Reader Views with my books. They have helped reach new readers by promoting awards and giveaways. I would recommend Reader Views for anyone that writes or reads books.”

“I’ve participated in Reader Views Literary Awards Program for a number of years and have been fortunate enough to win two awards which aided immensely in book sales! I’ve also advertised in First Chapter Plus eMagazine which resulted in significant additional exposure for my novels. I highly recommend both endeavors!”
“Working with Reader Views was a very pleasant surprise. My book received honest, positive feedback from the professional reviewer who knew the subject well. I was able to use excerpts from the “tear sheet” for posting on my website and social media sources. I immediately got feedback from contacts and many potential readers in addition to a renewed spike of interest in my humorous golf book from all corners of the U.S. I will use this resource again for my book’s sequel, Murder on the Green.”
