We are a small team that loves building tools for independent creative thinkers. We are passionate about writing software, designing simple user experiences, and reading non-fiction, thrillers, and literary fiction. BookSirens exists because we believe the process of getting honest book reviews can be drastically improved for indie authors, publicists, and publishers.
The status quo is inefficient. We surveyed ~100 indie authors and publicists and determined the average indie author spends between 6-24 hrs contacting book reviewers to review their book. Furthermore, we surveyed ~500 book bloggers and determined ~25% of review requests they receive don’t match their preferences with some bloggers reporting as high as 50%!
Our mission is to address both these problems: help authors win back their time and help reviewers get closer to the books and authors they will love.
