Hello. I'm looking for more ways to offer my services as a book reviewer. So far, I have set up a blog http://reedjames.blogspot.com/, and I also have a gig on Fiverr. Another method I use is to read an author's book, write up a short review on my blog, and then notify him or her offering additional services for a fee.

Do you have any other ideas that I could pursue? Thanks?
Fantastic that you are offering this service as a book reviewer as book stores as well as libraries (public and academic) are often looking for quality reviews for book purchases.

Some recommendations that I can offer are:

1. Additional to the blog you set up, creating an ezine that can be subscription based and sent out to subscribers. This can help in increasing your readers as well as bring in additional income.

2. There are additional sites online that look for reviewers and can also bring in additional income as well as building up your subscription base. Some of these are:

http://www.booksneeze.com/join/
http://www.bookkus.com/im-a-reader/
http://bakerpublishinggroup.com/bethanyhouse/bookreviewers

3. With subscriptions being built up and more readers on your site, you may wish to get your reviews in peer publications. The major players in this industry are Booklist from the ALA, Kirkus Reviews and Publisher's Weekly. Sending your portfolio with reviews written can be sent to each publication to see about their interest in becoming one of their reviewers.
