I highly recommend Danielle for book reviews!  I was especially pleased with the competent and insightful review she did of my Home on the Range.

Very professional and impressive, a privilege to be working with. Goes above and beyond the call of duty. Will be requesting more service in the future.

5 Stars – Christina Shriver. 01/18/2015

She is sweet and cooperative. She responds promptly and with courtesy. Danielle goes out of her way to complete the job, even when it is not compensated. She is a pleasure to work with.

5 Stars – Frank Peterson. 01/17/2015

As a relatively new author, I found myself confused and at a loss, amid the shifting standards currently overshadowing the Publishing Industry. Having just self-published my first book, I was aware I needed several things; exposure as an author to help build a platform; honest, unbiased book reviews, and most importantly, guidance from an experienced and knowledgeable source. As luck would have it I came in contact with Ms. Danielle Urban, whose work I’d seen spread liberally throughout various sites. When contacted, Ms. Urban sounded eager to assist me, and graciously offered her services to review my book, explaining that her passion was assisting other authors any way she could, including free and honest book reviews for those who wished her service.

Ms. Urban is engaging while remaining quite professional. She always makes herself available for questions and/or updates. I never had to wait to have my Emails informatively answered. Danielle’s guidance helped me navigate through the chaos and the turmoil, challenging most new authors emerging in today’s uncertain climate. I would highly recommend Ms. Urban’s talents to all who might benefit from such services. I, for one, feel more informed and confident from her tutelage.

5 Stars – Joe Cosentino. 01/16/2015

Since I am a published author, Danielle Urban interviewed me for her blog on writing. She also reviewed my mystery novel, PAPER DOLL (Whiskey Creek Press), and posted a review. Danielle will be doing the same for my romance novella, AN INFATUATION (Dreamspinner Press). I found Danielle extremely professional, competent, reliable, and polite. I recommend her highly. http://www.JoeCosentino.weebly.com.

She was the first to review my story. She gave me a fair and well review. She was very helpful. I highly recommend her.

  1. It does work and is a real email. If you click on it it wont take out to the email. I just typed the email address for those to copy and paste when emailing to that address. If it helps i. Can post the interactive link for you.


    1. Your most welcome! Thank you for letting me read your marvelous novel! I really enjoyed reading it. And I know readers everywhere else will enjoy it just as much! πŸ™‚ Again thank you! πŸ™‚ May God Bless you too!


  2. Hi Danielle,

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve just set up a site sort of like NetGalley
    where you can review free books online. It’s here to help self-published authors
    get a little more attention than they’re getting, but I hope it’ll do nice things for you too. Let’s see:
    – you can post your website in your profile so you can get some backlink love from Google
    – I’ll help tweet your reviews
    – you can make some coffee money by adding your Amazon Associates ID to the book reviews and get commissions
    on any purchases made through your reviews
    – …and it’s a new place to make a name for youself. Plus, I can imagine there’s a slight prestige in reviewing obscure books.
    Good reviewers will be loved on this site and if you’re into being loved, come check it out. If there are other benefits, things you,
    as a book blogger, are looking for, please let me know and I’ll see if I can build it into the site.
    Many thanks for taking the time to read this. The site is http://www.paperbackreviewer.com and you can sign up with your Twitter or FB account.
    Hope to see you on the site!

    Best regards,

    John Khoury

  4. Just came across your lovely review of my book “Feral Attraction.” Thanks so much! It’s always gratifying when a reviewer takes the time to comment on specific things, such as the characters.
