In between writing, I have my own TV show on WMP TV on Roku, Amazon Firestick and YouTube. On The Review I take on popular authors, such as Stephenie Meyer and Veronica Roth, but also do live reviews with authors. This is the only show of this kind, where the author gets their review live on camera. I don’t hold back.
Let’s be honest, I love vampires. I have for most of my life, so of course I read Twilight. I love it like a fat kid loves cake (hey, I’m fat so I can say that.) And yes I was thrilled when I heard Midnight Sun was finally being released. I ordered it the day pre-sales went live. I will be doing a review of it on the show. Will I hold back because of how much I love the series? No! I have been waiting for Stephenie to finish this book for over ten years, but that doesn’t mean I will be holding back when I review it. I didn’t hold back when I did the review on the Twilight Saga. It had some issues and I was quick to point them out. I will do the same for Midnight Sun.
I look for particular categories when I read a book. If the book doesn’t cut it in those categories it gets a low rating. I break it down into five categories- Cover Design, Concept, Plot/Subplot, Character Development and Entertainment Level. I rate each category 1-5 stars then give the book an overall rating. The only reason I don’t give a zero is because I know how hard it is to be an author. Everyone deserves at least one star.
If you know of a series or book you’d like for me to review, please reach out to me and let me know. I am happy to review most anything. If you are an author and would like to have your book reviewed on the show, contact me. I can be reached on here or on Twitter at @shaspellbound or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be prepared for honest feedback. I was born and raised in the south. I don’t sugar coat what I have to say.
