Pick yer poison

Are you a book junkie?

      …Have we got the 12-step program for you!

We have a book review staff that fluctuates between 100 – 120 avid book readers. Some are authors themselves. Some hold an MFA degree. Others just enjoy reading and do a great job of summarizing what they do and don’t like about a book. But we’re always looking to add more talent to the pool.

If you’re interested in auditioning to become a book reviewer for us — know the difference between your/you’re, its/it’s — and can summarize and review a book in 175-200 words, send us three samples of books you’ve reviewed to Ross Rojek, Editor-in-Chief – reviews@1776productions.com.

Your general compensation will be the books you receive from us. Be the first to read a new title that hasn’t yet been released. If you review a book that was submitted through the Sponsored Review program, you’ll receive 20% of whichever level of turnaround the author purchased. If one of your reviews was purchased by one of our licensees, you’ll receive 50% of what we were paid for the review ($2.50 for online usage; $5.00 for use in a print publication).

The KBR program is temporarily full, and cannot accept new participants at this time.

If you have a child or children between the ages of 5 and 17 who loves to read and can commit to providing us with a review for the Children’s, Tweens, or Young Adult book they have chosen to review for us, we’d love to have them participate in our bi-monthly magazine Kids’ Book Review. Their reviews will also appear on our website. For all of 2013, Kids’ Book Review appeared as an insert inside San Francisco Book Review and Sacramento Book Review (which was discontinued after 2013). Because of the popularity of KBR, it launched as its own magazine in February 2014.

Our list of available books will be emailed to participating children’s parents every two weeks. Lists are sorted by publication issue date. So, if you have a child who likes to take their time reading a book, select one from an issue that is a couple months out. If you have a fast reader who can commit to having a review written by the deadline, then select from the list going into the next issue.

Any questions, please email us or call 877-913-1776 and ask for Heidi.
