A Shout Out to Book Lovers: Free books in Exchange for a Little Help From Our Friends



Your NewBookReview trusted review coordinator 

You can get any of the books we list here for FREE, and hope in exchange for this gift, you will write a review and post it on any of the online book selling sites. 

Wonder why these authors are giving away their books? 

For one thing, they really value the opinions of their reading audience and would greatly appreciate your feedback. But these authors also are smart enough to realize that avid readers just like you, choose books based on recommendations. So you see, posting a review on any of the credible online book selling sites is like telling your friends how much you enjoyed your latest read.

This is a win-win for all of us. You have the opportunity to get some great books for FREE, while these authors have the opportunity to expand their circle of readers and fans.

Reviewers must contact author directly and commit to writing a review within 30 days, posting it on Amazon, and giving author permission to post it on the New Book Review blog.



Tales2inspire was a kernel of an idea I started in 2012. which has grown to proportions even I didn’t dare to envision. My innate curiosity about potentially fascinating human interest stories was the spark that ignited this idea, but it was the confused state of traditional publishing that propelled me forward. Tales2inspire delivers exactly what it promises as both an authors-helping-authors project and a contest. Winners get their stories published in print, e-book, and some even in video formats, with their names, headshot photos, and mini-autobiographies. Then I spread the word about the winners and their stories on my blog, in my monthly newsletter, and on various social networks. Free to enter, this competition is open to talented newbies and seasoned authors alike. Visit her website at: to learn more and click on CONTEST if you wish to enter an inspiring story of your own.


Lois is a multi award-winning author whose work has been featured in The New York Times, on Local Access TV, and in live presentations in many varied venues. She has now published eight Tales2Inspire books of her contest winners' stories. Fans of Chicken Soup for the Soul are particularly enamored of Tales2Inspire books, because aside from their inspirational themes, they are filled with original photos to enhance the power of each story. Lois invites interested readers to get a FREE Tales2Inspire sampler book at:  and to learn more about entering the next Tales2Inspire contest at: She is also a regular contributor to this blog.
