I'm considering sending my book to www.allbookreviews.com (http://www.allbookreviews.com/) for a review and I was wondering if anyone here has had any first hand experience working with them?

I've googled them and didn't find anything negative and their reviews that I've read on their site seem pretty decent, but I was hoping for some info from anyone who may have had first-hand experiences dealing with them.

Any advice, recommendations or bewares?

No experience, but I would have to wonder about the $50 cost. If you do choose to send them a copy and pay the fee, let us know how it goes as others I'm sure would be interested.

Well, as they seem to be virtually unheard of around here - I doubt I'll be going that far! Not without giving it a lot more thought, at the very least.

Tell you what. You send me $49.95 and I will write you up a review that will knock your socks off. Just place the funds in my paypal account. Thanks......

The site is unprofessional, they highlight POD too much on their homepage. They are seeking the needy. I could find better use for $50.

Can't say I have much liking for their site design either - pretty dated.

Thanks for answering. Although I didn't find anything negative about these people I was a bit uncertain about them. I only wanted to know if they were a known company or not to try and help me determine if my misgivings were warranted or not.

So far, I haven't seen anything to convince me of the latter.

~ Thanks for your time.

Infamous, a little.

Something to keep in mind - a review you pay for is pretty much worthless. They seem to be taking great advantage of the Publish America crowd, and the reviews themselves are pretty embarrassing in terms of sentence structure.

I could recommend you try http://www.Alreadypublished.com, its a pretty cool site and they let authors post their book for free. It's a nice setup too. Good luck.
