Several months ago, I submitted the first two of the Agnil’s Worlds books to Readers’ Favorite, a book reviews and awards organisation, requesting professional reviews for them. I wanted to get honest reviews so I went for a free rather than their paid option nor do I know any of the people at Readers’ Favorites in any way, shape or form. That way they were not obliged in any way to give a favourable review. It took a few months to get the reviews back but, suddenly, both notifications arrived in my inbox within 24 hours of each other!
To receive one five star review was brilliant but when the second arrived I couldn’t quite believe it! I was over the moon to discover that both books had been awarded five star reviews!
Readers Favorite also run a prestigious annual award and I am currently considering whether I should submit one of them for next year’s contest. What do you think? Are you more likely to read or recommend a book which has won an award?
