The bottom line is this: behave like a grown up. We want an atmosphere of educated, informed authors making solid decisions to better their career. We do not want a bunch of dirt slinging, so just don’t do it. If the work provided was poor, say so but don’t be a jerk about it. You’re authors. Ever heard of review karma?
Just create a completely FREE Author’s Atlas membership here. You’ll be able to reply to messages in the discussion forum.
We want you to be able to make informed decisions. This means we have to allow honest reviews, both negative and positive. We provide questions during the review submission process to help ensure the review focuses on the work provided. We also remind the reviewer to list any positive points even in an overall negative experience. Provided a review meets our “review guidelines,” meaning the review addresses the work provided and is not a personal attack, it will be kept on Author’s Atlas even if it is a negative review. We will do our best to limit profanity and unprofessional behavior on this site. If a submitted review does not meet our review guidelines, the reviewer will be notified.
Do your research! We’re advocates of making informed decisions, hence the birth of Author’s Atlas! Read reviews, look at ratings, contact the Publishing Professionals and ask for estimates. If you would like more feedback than the reviews provide, ask a question in the discussion forum.
These reviews are written by authors like you. We do not allow anonymous reviews on Author’s Atlas, so reviews are provided by registered members.
