Outskirts Press says the reviewer will “provide one hundred percent honest feedback that can be used by an author as a promotional tool.” They also claim:
"It's an excellent way for authors to quickly get people 'buzzing' about their books."Outskirts is not guaranteeing the author a positive review, but they do say:
A full review of two to three hundred words will be ready within ten to twelve weeks and authors can use the review as they see fit: on the back cover of their books, on their own sites, in letters to agents, publishers, librarians or book store owners, or in any of their other marketing collateral.
… even one praiseworthy phrase from a Kirkus reviewer becomes potent advertising copy for a new author's book.You can read all about their new Kirkus Guaranteed Review service in their Press Release.
