  1. Hello. You reviewed my book, Anessia’s Quest last year. I have a new release and would love to have your review. If you are interested, I can send a hard copy or an eBook version for your reader (if you have one).
    The site has book trailer, synopsis and reviews.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. I’m excited to announce that on May 13th, The Story Plant will be releasing my new novel, Pressed Pennies. I was hoping that you might consider reviewing the novel for your blog and joining our virtual book tour:

    If you are interested, please contact Aaron Brown, Marketing Manager at and he’ll get you set up with a date that works for you.

    Novel’s Brief Synopsis:

    Rick and Abby grew up together, became best friends, and ultimately fell in love. Circumstance tore them apart in their early teens, though, and they went on to lives less idyllic than they dreamed about in those early days. Rick has had a very successful career, but his marriage flat-lined. Abby has a magical daughter, Paige, but Paige’s father nearly destroyed Abby’s spirit.

    Now fate has thrown Rick and Abby together again. In their early thirties, they are more world-weary than they were as kids. But their relationship still shimmers, and they’re hungry to make up for lost time. However, Paige, now nine, is not nearly as enthusiastic. She’s very protective of the life she’s made with her mother and not open to the duo becoming a trio. Meanwhile, Rick has very little experience dealing with kids and doesn’t know how to handle Paige. This leaves Abby caught between the two people who matter the most to her. What happens when the life you’ve dreamed of remains just inches from your grasp?

    Pressed Pennies is a nuanced, intensely romantic, deeply heartfelt story of love it its many incarnations, relationships in their many guises, and family in its many meanings. It is the most accomplished and moving novel yet from a truly great storyteller of the heart.

    Early Praise:

    “Pressed Pennies is priceless! Steve Manchester has an obvious love of words and an amazing ability to use those words to create lasting images in the reader’s mind. His detail-oriented, richly drawn characters and descriptions make this story leap off the pages.” – Joyce Handzo, In the Library Reviews

    “Pressed Pennies is a warm, lovely story about generosity, unconditional love and acceptance, and a celebration of family.” – Jane Bowers, Romance Reviews Today

    “An exceptional story about family, life and love…Pressed Pennies examines family life at a much simpler time” – Books2Mention Magazine

    “From Steven Manchester and the wonderful characters of Pressed Pennies, we
    learn about real life and true love…and that you can go back.” – Phyllis Muhlhauser, Romance Book Cafe

    Again, many thanks for considering our virtual book tour!

  3. Thanks so much for your encouraging review of my book, THE DUNNING MAN. I really appreciate it and I wonder if I could bother you to review and rate it on Goodreads and Amazon. Would be much appreciated — thanks again!


  4. Hi Vicki,
    My name is David Webster and I have a self-published comedy crime thriller entitled “Women’s Work: How to Rob a Bank” that I am hoping you could review. I see you suspended reviews for 2015 and I’m posting in hope that now we’ve turned the corner into 2016 you are back to reviewing.
    I’ve posted a link to my first novel on the Amazon Kindle store. The book is the first of a series and I am in the process of publishing the second, “Women’s Work 2: How to Steal Art”, also on the Kindle store. They are intended to be light, fun reads, ideal for the beach – hence why your blog seemed appropriate. Incidentally, IRBATB really struck a chord since where I am in Cornwall, UK we have a lot of beaches. But the forecast is snow and I was wearing five layers on the beach to walk the dog this morning. So I think I would have to add WIWU (When It Warms Up).
    I haven’t gone down the route of producing a hard copy yet. If you would consider reviewing my book I can send you a MOBI file for Kindle or a PDF if you prefer. Whatever you decide – review or not – many thanks for the opportunity. Regards, David
