Night Owl Reviews: Helping You Find Your Next Great Book

Hi Readers and Authors,

This is Tammie King from Night Owl Reviews. NOR is where we help readers find their next great book.


Night Owl Reviews was started around six and a half years ago by me as a fun way to share my love of books and also learn website design. Since then it has greatly expanded to include a whole reviewer and columnist community. We also went from having one genre site (Night Owl Romance) to having seven. 

We don’t just review books but also have other ways for readers to find great reads and authors.
We have author pages, chats, contests, video reviews, book showcases, web hunts (scavenger hunts), author blogs, free reads, author interviews and a monthly magazine.

The best way to get to know us is to come and visit. We often hear readers say they spend hours on the site just getting lost, lost in a good way. We have a lot of books showcased and you just click around as you see something exciting. I happen to enjoy trolling the author pages as I like finding new authors and checking up on my favorites. The author pages include an author bookshelf, website link, book blurbs, interviews and more. For those authors reading, you can get a free basic author page. There is a link in the Author Pages section.


We would love to have you come visit us. To get to real-time chat with me and the authors do come visit our chat room. Dates and times we will be chatting are on the chat page.

NOR is like a choose-your-adventure booklover site that never ends. You choose a genre and just go. You can change over to another genre at any time. We provide lots of twists and turns as you find new authors and awesome reads. 

Here are some pages to get you started:

NOR is one of those sites I visit regualarly. I love the look of the page. They also gave me a great review for my first book. ;-)

Tammie,
I can appreciate how much work must have gone into NOR. Hours and hours go into putting out a quality product (a great story or creative website or much-read blog). Romancing the Genres appreciates your willingness to spend the day with us as our First Guest Blogger.
I am wondering though how has
the success of NOR changed your life?

Sarah Raplee said...

Tammie, NOR's author pages & chats rock! Not to mention your reviews. :)

Thanks for stopping by today.

I'm a new author at NOR. It's a great site. As a reader, NOR is a wonderful resource, Tammie. And I love that something starting out as inspiration turned into such a grand adventure - just like a book :) It's true, I can spend many hours among the pages doing one of my favorite things, looking for a new author to read :)

The Author Pages sound like a must for any author--debut or otherwise. With the fractured market the importance of reader sites like yours will only grow.

Sarah Raplee said...

You are SOOOO right, Linda!!!

Two of my three novels-Magical Man List and Getting Back to Delaney- were reviewed by Night Owl Reviews. Gotta love a good review. Thanks NOR for helping to get the word out there.

Hi Tam :). Glad to have you come over and join us.

Hi Judith,

NOR has changed my life. I've been able to create a job of my own that I really enjoy. I used to work in the basment of a hospital and now get to work from home in a room with a window. I love what I do and where I do it from.

Night Owl Reviews said...

Hi Terri - Thanks for the compliments. It's great to get some feedback on the look and what we provide.

Night Owl Reviews said...

Thanks for joining us Elaine, SamMarie and Patty.

Night Owl Reviews said...

Hi Bron. We still review historicals. We review what the publishers sends us, so that goes up and down based on what we get in. You can directly find the hisotical romance reviews at: http://www.nightowlromance.com/nor/Pages/Reviews.aspx?Page=0&Genre=9

Night Owl Reviews said...

Hi Susan,

Glad to have you join us as a debut author and as a readers.

Night Owl Reviews said...

Hi Linda,

So true. The market is really expanding and getting in front of readers is very importatnt for both debut and established authors. My goal is to be the hostess / matchmaker.

Night Owl Reviews said...

Christie - So glad to hear you liked the reviews!

What's great about good Internet based reviews is they can keep on giving for years. With the search feature readers can stumble upon a review and find a great book many years after it was reviewed.

Tammie replied to all comments, but Blogger went down and her replies were lost. I will try to post them for her.

Night Owl Reviews is very impressive! Navigating through it is akin to "choose your own adventure." What a lot of hard work and dedication to create such a magnificent site! I am also new to it but I plan on getting lost in it again and again.
