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.

I know…I am stuck on CNN day and night obsessing about what is going on. I am planting all kinds of veggies (just in case…) and am sewing masks to donate. It doesn’t get worse than this. But even though…
Sharon D. Ballentine started reading at an early age and always knew she wanted to write. But it wasn’t until her junior year in college that she took a fiction-writing class and a poetry writing class. She claims her first short story was crap but went on to publish two poems in college. Sharon graduated from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and University of Houston. She retired as a college professor. Sharon currently lives in Houston, Texas with her family.

“I absolutely loved the experience of working with Reader Views. At all times, I truly felt that I was dealing with professionals who had read and appreciated my debut novel, Mistress Suffragette. First-time novelists often don’t realize how competitive it is out there. We are presented with a dizzying array of publicity options, so it really helps when you can work with folks who genuinely care about helping your book succeed. The online interview was great, and the podcast was terrific fun. While I write and polish the sequel to my novel, I am keeping my fingers crossed on the award show!”
“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!”
–Sherrill S. Cannon
