An impartial and credible review is a priceless tool for any author. Whether a book is traditionally published or self-published, whether an author is a seasoned professional working on a series or a novice with a first title, a book review is essential to be competitive in the publishing industry. Banking on three reputable reviewers from different sides of the publishing industry, Trafford now offers The Trifecta Review Service to cater to authors who want an unbiased and professional critique of their work.
Kirkus Indie Book Review
Traditional, honest, and well-respected
As with Kirkus Reviews, all Kirkus Indie reviewers are experienced professionals who give honest, impartial evaluations of the titles they receive. The review can be positive or negative, but the author is guaranteed a fair and unbiased assessment of his book and its potential value in the market. He can then use this to market his book or to catch the attention of a publisher or literary agent.

Devoted exclusively to reviewing self-published books
BlueInk Reviews is the first review service to focus exclusively on self-published books. It is founded by two book publishing pros—an internationally-known literary agent and an award-winning book review editor—with one purpose: to find and celebrate the best of self-published books. It offers what self-published authors have long been trying to find: honest, objective reviews written by well-respected critics.
TAT: 8–9 weeks (Standard Review)
One of the few remaining wholly independent review sources
This paid-for service is ForeWord magazine’s answer to the demand for a professionally-written and objective review. With today’s growing number of published books, it is harder than ever to get a credible review from a well-respected source. Drawing from the same pool of highly-qualified reviewers as ForeWord’s other review services, the Clarion Review-for-Free provides a professional critique, guaranteeing the same quality and authority as ForeWord magazine reviews.
