“I am so grateful that I came across Jeyran while searching for reviewers for myself- published novel, Recreance. Despite having a sizable list of books to read and review, she was able to get to mine in a very timely manner. Communication was responsive and professional, and my overall experience was excellent. The review itself was well thought out, poignant, and constructive. i am looking forward to hearing what she thinks of the next book in the series once it’s released!”

H. G. Chambers – Author of “Recreance”

“If you have already read The House of the Soul, you will find my words were laced with a certain irony. One of the insights the protagonist learns on her journey is not to rely on validation from the outside world, but to find it within yourself. As an author, I’m afraid my spiritual journey has not evolved that far. Instead, I rush to read any new review and bask in the validation of my work wherever I can find it! Jeyran did a wonderful job describing the heart and soul of the story, without giving too much away. She also hinted at the different layers available for a reader to explore beyond the main plot. I highly recommend utilizing Jeyran’s many talents if you’re after an insightful review of your work.”
