Susan Keefe – Book Reviewer




Once published a writer soon realizes that writing a book is one thing, getting it noticed out there in the real world is another matter.

There are millions of books and eBooks out there, each proudly written and published, sitting, waiting to be noticed, a good review in the right places can make all the difference.

This is why my reviews are placed not only on Amazon, and other websites where the book is sold (if possible), but also on two blogging sites, in my reviews column in the online magazine Living-in-France, and on my bookshelf in the Midwest Book Review. The review will also be posted across the social media for 60 days from the publication of the book review on my site.

If you would like me to personally review your book, then place the honest review not only on the sites above, but also promote it on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn please email me at for more information.

    Hi Susan ~
    Would you be interested in reviewing “This Business of Children”? It’s a novel and has won the Bronze Award in Readers Favorite competition. Don MacNab has written the screen play for it as well.
    Looking forward to your reply,

    I am in the process of writing my second book called, “Cast The First Stone.”
    I only have five pages written so far on my blog site. Are you only reviewing finished books? My first book that I wrote is actually being published right now. I am new to publishing books, however, I have had a passion for writing ever since I was a young child. I do have other personal writings that I do share with the public on my blog as well as the blog for this book. Please let me know if you only review finished books. If so, I apologize for bothering you with this. Thank you.

    1. Susan

      Hi Julia, The simple answer is yes I do review unfinished books, however, the full details have been sent to your email address.

  4. Michele Kunz

    My books are finished, however they are not published. Do you review unpublished manuscripts, where is the review posted and is there a fee for this service? Thank you, I’m looking forward to hearing from you…

    1. Susan

      Hi Michele, Thank you for your question and the link to your lovely site.

      I do review unpublished manuscripts. The review is yours to use on your site but there is a clear understanding that the book must not be changed in such a way as to make the review inaccurate.

      The fee is the same as for published works as I still have to read the book and create the review which has my name on it.

      If/when the book is published in the future, you can contact me and I will post the review and promote it as I usually do.


  5. Pam Bitterman

      Hi Todd, Thank you! It’s lovely to be working with you again, I loved “Time Killer” and can’t wait to read “Lies to Die for.”

    1. Susan

      You’re welcome, your narration was lovely.

    Thank you, Susan, for your review of High Heel & Beetle Crushers, to be published on 14 December 2019 by Chronos Books. Yours is the first official book review to be posted on Goodreads. I’m delighted you enjoyed reading my memoir and it resonated a little with your own memories of childhood. I’ve had some great feedback and some preorders as a result!

    1. Susan KEEFE

      I am so pleased you liked my review of your fascinating memoir, and I am looking forward to it being published on the 14th December. Your childhood memories of life at the end of WWII, and in post war Britain, including your time in the WRAC really made compelling reading, and did indeed bring back some of my own wonderful childhood memories.
