I'd like to thank the handful of members who have really stepped up on writing reviews for authors. They really appreciate when members take the time to write the review. Speaking as an author myself, reviews and feedback encourage us to write. I've heard from several of our authors thanking us for reminding everyone how important this is.

You never know when you'll find that next must read story... but those reviews might help guide you in. And, in turn, your reviews will help guide others. Everyone benefits.
If you are looking for stories to review, Here's the list of completed stories. Any story that isn't already showing stars, needs a review. Give them a try. Or, go back and review some of your beloved classics. The authors love hearing from you.
Go through the list and be sure to leave a review!
It is really simple.
Select a star rating from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best.
Write a review that is spoiler free that highlights what you think other people should know about the story. If you are leaving a critical or low rated review, please make your comments constructive so that the author has an opportunity to improve their writing. We writers usually appreciate this. I know I do.
If you are reading a story review and you like it and found it helpful, be sure to mark it as helpful.
That's it! Check out the video if you need help. It is closed captioned as well if you can't follow my mumbling dulcet tones:
