“When I asked for Jeyran to review my book, I didn’t know what to expect. I hoped for honesty, good or bad, as that is the mission of a professional reviewer’s work. I was delighted to see, that, like other authors have said, Jeyran “got it” and was able to write a review to the kernel of the intention of the text. That is huge for an author, who, of course, wants to be heard and not just “read.”  I truly appreciate the willingness to look at my work and offer it up to others on this site. There are soooo many people writing and publishing on their own now, that the work of legit reviewers, I believe, is more important than ever. Thank you Jeyran! “

Vali Hawkins Mitchell – Author of “#WeAreManyWomen: ManyVoices”

“Genuine in-depth review. Without spoiling anything for other readers, Jeyran explained the essence of my novel and laid down a wonderful base for others to enjoy. I really liked her review, and would love to share my future work with her.”
