Here is what some
independent publishers have had
say about the Fearless Reviews since our start in 1998...
The Fearless Reviews is one of the rare venues where a small press may confidently send a book for a fair reading. Books are judged for their content, style and approach to the genre. Care is taken by the reviewers to highlight what is unique about the work. The review is then written in a style that reflects the personality of the reader and is always thank heavens! quotable. In an age when so many reviewers refuse to acknowledge small press and weight all their reviews to big press product, it is wonderful to have a review site that actually promotes the lesser-known. Fearless Reviews is a treasure! Jacqueline Church Simonds, Beagle Bay Books Publishers of Womens Historical Adventure Nonfiction that Empowers and Informs
The Fearless Reviews offers a thoughtful and fearless look at books from independent publishers, many of which offer controversial views of subjects the mainstream press neglects, ignores, or dismisses. Leigh Davidson, Managing Editor Down There Press Sex-positive publishing since 1975!
The Fearless Reviews continues to take a leadership role in bringing to light important books that might otherwise be missed, especially those from small/independent presses. It's exciting to see the review reach the five year mark, and I'm sure it will continue to be an important force in shaping the discourse of our society. Shel Horowitz, author, Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First
Once our book was reviewed in Fearless Books, we gained a new level of professionalism as a publisher. Fearless has a reputation of providing insightful, quality book reviews and is the brightest star shining in the small press universe. A positive review from Fearless gets your books noticed and book orders flowing! Brigitte A. Thompson, Datamaster Publishing Services Books for Success in Childcare
Fearless provides an oasis of intelligent, independent reviewing in a desert of prepackaged marketing hype. The site calls em as it sees em, and in so doing renders a real service to booklovers and to important voices from publishers and authors outside of the cultural mainstream. Peter Goodman, Publisher Stone Bridge Press Quality Books & Software About Japan
Most major reviewers all but ignore the tens of thousands of books published independently every year, concentrating on those published by a handful of international multimedia conglomerates. Over the past five years, the Fearless Reviews has established itself as a much-needed filter to screen the great mass of independently published books, separating the gems from the dreck. As a result, readers can learn about excellent books and outstanding new writers who would otherwise be ignored because the big houses did not believe them to be safe investments. The reviews are honest not patronizing toward small presses, but giving them a chance of publicity if the books are good enough to merit it. Steve Carlson, Upper Access, Inc. Book Publishers, Book Publicists, Publishers' Assistant Software
The Fearless Reviews offer a critically discerning and much-needed small press focus in today's publishing review scene. Fern Reiss, PublishingGame.com
