Read Damnation!

Reef Rulez

  • All reviews are vetted by me before they’re allowed to be posted.

  • I will contact you with an invite to The Reef when I’m ready to upload you to it.

  • You are welcome to be honest and leave a negative review, but please remember to be kind and respectful.  Overly harsh or vulgar reviews will not be posted.

  • You may post short reviews, even one sentence, but general copy and paste reviews will not be counted in the reward system (so things written only with ‘it was good’ will not be counted).

  • Be sure to add your name to the review as you would like the public to see it so I can give you credit in our rewards system.

  • You are more than welcome to review people’s work without purchasing it, just take the time to read the available free chapters if there are any (we as authors know that getting people to pick up the novel in the first place is 80 percent of the battle so we’re more than happy to have you visit).

  • You are not required to post your review on Amazon or Goodreads to get credit on Diabolic Shrimp, but keep in mind your review on those sites really helps authors out a lot (positive or negative).  To get credit on Diabolic Shrimp, simply post your review in the comments section on that book’s page.

  • Have some fun!  Your voice matters here and I love to hear from all of you! 🙂
