Books are assigned to Authors Talk About It reviewers and the review and area ratings and overall number of stars will be emailed to the author (or representative) within 4-6 weeks after submission. Ratings range from 2-5 stars. Anything less than 3 stars is written as a critique with helpful comments as well as pointing out the positives of the book. Though we do not give 1 star ratings, the reviews are honest and when necessary, are meant to offer constructive criticism.
Star ratings are based on the following areas:
Appearance – cover, chapter headings, images/illustrations, etc.
Plot/Concept – consistent tone, clear theme, etc.
Development – realism, smooth progression, organization, etc.
Description of Scenes or Concepts – vividness, smooth transitions, etc.
Grammar/Typos – well written or numerous errors
Target Fit – good fit for the target audience
Overall – an average of the above 6 areas
The staff of Authors Talk About It will select five finalists. They will then make a final decision on winners after comparing the ratings in the six main areas and the overall ratings.
