“Review of novel: CHANGE”

N G.
6/22/21

I'm grateful for, and am really impressed by this review. I didn't expect my novel CHANGE to get 4 out of 4 stars. The reviewer clearly enjoyed the novel, and that came across in the review. I can't ask for more than that. The comments he made were valid and I will take them on board. It's not time to give up my day job just yet, but this review has encouraged me to keep on writing. I would recommend Online Book Club reviews.

“Dreadful”

Jo-Anne B.
2/7/22

I uploaded a book onto the Online book club and had it reviewed by someone who pointed out eight grammatical errors. I fixed those errors, then republished my book on Amazon. When I told Scott the $300 (NZ) amount for the review I received was unjustified, and that I wanted my book removed from their site, Scott started threatening me with nasty e-mails. I sent those e-mails to my bank who got my money back. Then Sarah Creeley (one of Scott's reviewers) posted the below review on my book. She didn't even read my book. Sarah Creeley 3.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of short stories but needs work Reviewed in the United States on December 2,2019 This is a collection of darker fairy tales where the historical inspiration is shared with the reader at the end. It has a bit of everything from evil step-mothers to vampires, so there will be something for all. However, I wish the stories had been developed further. There were also a number of grammatical errors that needed revising. Still, this is worth a read if you're looking for quick tales of evil with a historical basis.

OBC is the best online book club ever! I've been a member since 2016, and I love being part of such a positive community. I've connected with people all over the globe that I otherwise would have never had the opportunity. It's a great place to make friends, discover new reads, and even win some cash (I won $20 in the drawing on 4/24/21... yay! Thank you!). A big thank you to Scott, founder of OBC, for providing a community where all are welcome and where everyone's voice is valued. Much appreciated!:-)

Tip for consumers:
No matter where you're from, where you live, and what genre you most enjoy reading, there is something here for all to enjoy! OBC is for everyone! You'll love it here. :-)

Every day through daily giveaways I get a book to read and I'm enjoying reading it & writing reviews. This website is best for readers who has habitual reading. You can download books from amazon and read it in Kindle. When you win daily giveaway you'll get a cash award. That's amazing. Reading has given me a job. Now I have become part of the loving OBC.org community. This is the best safe review site. I recommend this to all.

I stumbled on this wonderful network some weeks ago on a friend's profile on LinkedIn. I subsequently subscribed as a reader and a reviewer, just to check it out and maybe have some fun. I had been quite sloppy in my reading habits lately.The email follow-up and reminders for tasks are awesome and keep me up my toes. The website has very easy-to-use navigation bars. The books of the day are also top notch. I already like it here and I believe I'd stick around a long while.

I have been a member of OBC for a few years. At first, I had doubts, since it's hard to believe that you can earn money just by reading and reviewing books. Indeed, it was certainly not easy with all the requirements you need to meet. However, after fulfilling them, I'm able to receive rewards for my efforts, such as payment after my reviews are published or payment for The First Ten program.

Let me be honest and admit that I was somewhat afraid to have my book reviewed. But I knew it was an important step for me to take. I found the OnlineBookClub reviewer to be fair and her feedback to be extremely useful. The review covered everything: content, grammar, approach, etc. There are millions of books out there and if you want your book to be taken seriously, I strongly recommend that you take this step. My only regret is that I did not do this sooner.

I've only joined a couple of hours ago but, I can honestly say it is worth it! My experience is genuinely amplified by the enticing books & titles but, mostly the captivating reviews. They're somewhat brief, insightful assessments that nearly portray the likeness of the illustrations verbatim. I hope you take my word for it, because my description hasn't been tainted by money/compensation. It emanates from my newfound fascination contributed by personal experience.

OnlineBookClub.org will help you build self-confidence in trying to review a book. This is my first time reviewing a book but i don't feel any pressure at all because they made the guidelines simple and easy to understand.
The people here are welcoming and ready to give answers to all your questions that will help you finish the review.
They have a good working attitude that's why you can rely on them when it comes to finding a quality book.

The experience was most worthwhile. To receive positive comments about my short story from discerning, interested and learned critics were most rewarding and worthwhile. I was also afforded the opportunity to outline the importance of such promotions in greatly increasing an awareness of my work on the international scene. Three of my short stories promoted through this medium are currently being converted into film scripts for consideration as movies.

I inquired into purchasing a promotional package for my fiancé's new book as a birthday gift. Scott was absolutely fantastic and totally took care of me and helped with my situation. Other than being a great platform for free books and generating reviews, their customer service is top notch. Really grateful for these guys!

I joined this platform a few months ago, and I am satisfied. There were some misunderstandings, however, as soon as the administration found out they immediately eliminated the problems. I think this platform is excellent for both reviewers and authors. Anyone who doubts the legitimacy of this website, believe me here your work will be appreciated. All the processes will go much faster than indicated on the website and also of course none of your reviews will be left without an editor rating.

Awsome site! There was NOT 1 book / author that I could think of, searched, and couldn't find! Their e-books are are well categorized so if you just feel like reading but not sure what, they have a solution for that! You can browse / search by category (obviously) - education, historical, science-fiction, etc. You can even search by things like moods such as - love stories, sad, gangster, etc. Best part is that its all FREE!

In my 50-year career I ran 5 (direct mail) book clubs. Peter Possum (children's) Book Club (Grolier), Better Homes & Gardens Family Book Service plus BH&G Cooking club, Lawyer's Literary Club and School Administrator's Club (Macmillan). Old fashioned, stodgy stuff. If I were 60 years younger I would apply to you for a job. I learned more from your promotional wizardry than I ever did in the prior half century. All I can say is, "WOW!"

Online book club has created a platform that helps both the authors or readers, the employed and the unemployed by giving meaningful jobs and opportunities to both parties. My experience so far has been a little rough since there's a lot to get use to. Not to mention the numerous guidelines to follow. I hope to continue until I become monetized while giving my time and effort through service to aid authors on there journey to success.

I found Onlinebookclub.org by accident in October 2020. I was sent there by a giveaway link. After further looking into it, I found a way to get paid for most book reviews along with their daily giveaway. I get to read new books, write a review, get paid for that review, and enter into daily giveaways worth up to $40. I absolutely enjoy reading so getting paid to do so is just a bonus. I definitely recommend checking them out.

I have been on the Onlinebookclub.org review team since September 2020, and I must say that the experience has been highly enjoyable so far. I have come across some great books to review, and I am very grateful for the received payments. Additionally, I have won the "Book of the day" contest once, and earned the "First Ten" payout twice, which have all been paid swiftly. I have not had any big issues, but the few questions that have come up during these months, have been answered by the OBC team within 24 hours.

OnlineBookClub.org is the best website, overall, I have come across. It is a website where you are being given a book, mostly for free, to read and write a review of it; and as well get paid for the review. It is also a great online community for writers and publishers to apply for a review of their books. There are many great opportunities in the website. It is highly user friendly. The management are sincere and strict with their rules and regulations. Just be a good member and you will get the best of the benefits therein.

Tip for consumers:
Obey the site's rules and regulations. They are very strict with them.

The online book club provides interesting books of different genres as well as a source of income for me. I as a student who appreciates the love Scott has shown for nerds and unemployed undergraduates, could not rate the site less than excellent!
The reviews provided by reviewers are genuine and well detailed. What more could I ask for?
Free books
Earning money
Providing introverts with a chance to make friends and communicate
Making me realise I'm not alone the only book addict in this world!

I've been with OBC since July 2020 and so far everything I expect is met. I got to read books for free and been compensated for the reviews I made. Yes, some of the reviews I made do not have good ratings but what do I expect. All things should meet a certain standard so that this site can remain its prestige. And those ratings make me want to try harder which is a gain in itself. I also received free books by joining a daily raffle which I won recently, a major plus for this site.

Tip for consumers:
If you like reading this is a good site to have.

I am in awe of my experience with OnlineBookClub.org. On this new journey I am learning and earning. A low rating was a shock to my ego, but the professional way in which errors was dealt with and analysed left me feeling more informed, content and ready for the next adventure! Thank you for this opportunity to read. Thank you for paying me to do so.
Americanisms make me scratch me head, but I will read the grammar platform provided. Everything depends on me really, because your support is comprehensive.

One of the few book sites that I've personally visited with any regularity that demonstrates any organization, direction and easy to understand tech issues. Take your time, read the instructions, follow them and you will minimize any confusion. They are great when it comes to answering questions and giving you the correct information you need to resolve and tech issues might have. Excellent book site. Nothing beats OBC.Org

Tip for consumers:
Have all your information handy when you need assistance. It's time consuming when you have to leave a tutorial to searching for something. You are wasting everyone's time if you aren't prepared. Have everything right there in front of you. You'll be surprised at how fast things will go.

As a new member of OBC it's pleasant to finally come across an intellectual site that has its focus on books and reading. The site is easy to navigate. The comments are appropriate. And the available references are up to date and currant.

Tip for consumers:
Be sure you have the minutia available and handy to help speed things up. You waste time having to stop in the middle of conversation having to go look for information. Have it right in front of you.

I wish to congratulate the reviewer on a marvellous piece of work. The reviewer has noted some small errors and I have fixed all of them on a new manuscript.

I am so pleased with the manuscript that I would like a name or identifier so that I can use the same reviewer again for my first book, Destiny Cottage that requires an edit and resubmission, but more importantly of my next book. She has demonstrated the ability to portray complex issues in a review helpful to the author

To get paid you need to do paid reviews. But since you are new, you'll have to do at least one volunteer/unpaid review. This is so that the moderators can see how well you are able to keep to the guidelines. There are six reviewer levels in total. The higher levels offer review opportunities with higher payouts. Writing good reviews following guidelines and participating within the bookclub will help get you to higher levels. Hope that helps!
