“I highly recommend The Coffee Pot Review Club as a quality and honest editorial review service for all authors, both traditionally published and independent…”

Daniel Greene, award-winning author of The End Time Saga and the Historical Fiction Northern Wolf Series.

Why choose The Coffee Pot Book Club?

The Coffee Pot Book Club Book Award Badge has become a trusted badge of recognition for quality Historical Fiction, Historical Romance and Young Adult Fiction. 

What is an editorial review?

Unlike a book review, an editorial review is written by professional readers who will compare your book to a professional standard, regardless of how it is published. 

Editorial reviews give your book legitimacy and they are packed with quotable sentences you can use for marketing purposes. Editorial reviews are often used on the front of book covers, and on the editorial review page inside your book. You can also add your editorial review to the review section of your website, as well as your book's editorial review page on Amazon.


Editorial reviews help to sell books!
