Reckon Review seeks unpublished reviews of books that would be interesting to Reckon readers. (Take a look at what we publish - rural, grit lit, Appalachian.) WE LOVE INDIE BOOKS. We are particularly interested in how this book connects with other books in the genre, or how it works in a larger context (aka not just whether you liked it or not.) We are also looking to build a list of reviewers to work with us on an ongoing basis - if we like your review we'll contact you about this.
