Are these reviews you have written? If so, just copy and paste.

Hi All,
I am looking for some publishers to submit my early reader puzzle NF book. Is there a market for such a thing? If you know of any publishers accepting PB, NF puzzle books, please share the information with me.
Thanks so much for your help.
Sincerely,

Rani



P.S. Vijaya, if this is not the right place for the post, please feel free to move it around.

Hi fellow writers,

I am checking to seek some advice on how to post the book reviews from goodreads on my Amazon author page. These are book reviews of other books, not my own.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Rani

Hi All,

This Q pertains to Member's only area. How do I subscribe to some boards there? I would like to get updates when something new is posted on the board. If anyone can share the tip, it will be great.

Thanks so much.

Sincerely,

Rani

Hi Orchid!
Did you received a form  rejection email? I have from Cricket Media, and then the status changed to declined. Don’t take it personal if you didn't get personal feedback. That happens to all of us. If they declined without sending you a form letter , my guess is that an intern reading the huge electronic slush pile forgot to send it.  Focus on your Highlights personal reply. That is a super compliment!
Bestest!

Hi Orchid. Just wanted to add that there are many reasons for rejection that have absolutely nothing to do with the quality of your sub. Maybe they just purchased something similar, or they really need stories that feature a boy instead of a girl, or maybe a chicken instead of a dog  :grin3 This industry is not only subjective, but is also a real heartbreaker at times. It's important not to take rejection personally. Just dust off that "well-written" story and find it a new home.  :horse2

Thanks Ev! I think I had hopes built up on this one specifically after Highlights sent me a 'personal reject' on the same story saying that it was 'well done'. I think I learnt today how much this business is subjective. Onto the next one, I guess!
