“Jeyran Main’s review of my novel Western Song keyed in on several central points that I desire most to come across to my readers and hopefully affect them. Her writing is simple but powerful with specific word choices that make her point efficiently and effectively. Despite a very busy schedule, her turnaround was appreciably quick. I am quite pleased with my experience with this reviewer.”

I would recommend her to readers and authors alike! both will appreciate her thorough assessment of books.”
