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.
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.

“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.”

“Reader Views is top of my list whenever I have a new book coming out and I am considering ways to spread the word about it. The great range of services along with the friendly advice that I have received over the years has been invaluable. The wonderful team at Reader Views has really helped me achieve my writing ambitions!”
“Working with Reader Views was an amazingly professional experience. They offered great feedback on my novel—nice, long reviews about what they really liked about the book, not just a couple of lines. And communication with them was also spot-on. They answered any questions very quickly and with a real, personal touch. I would highly recommend their services!”
“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.”

“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!”
