    Hi Everyone, I’m new to FOF and my award-winning novel, “Husbands May Come and Go but Friends are Forever,” has been optioned for the big screen. It fits right into this group as it’s about six women in their late fifties who first met in high school. It’s available in both print and as a ebook. I’d love some of you to read it and give me your feedback.
    Thanks,

    Hi Ellen,

    Just wanted to add an important update to this question in case there are any other authors who want to get their book reviewed on FabOverFifty.
    We are launching an FOF Book Review Club. If you mail us your book we will assign it to one of our Book Gurus to read and review on our site.

    You can mail review copies to:
    FabOverFifty Book Reviews
    1327 Lexington Ave.
    Suite 11B
    New York, N.Y. 10128

    Hope this helps you and other FOF authors!

    I agree with Geri, I love reading an undiscovered by me author’s book. Now you have me curious so I will be hitting the local library to read your book(s).

      Hi: You won’t find the book in your library unless you have them order it. I would be happy to send you a code for a free download if you have an E-reader. Let me know.

    I’m sorry, I can’t help you with that. But I can suggest that the author, herself, could JOIN FOF and maybe submit an outline or even do as other authors do and submit a ‘teaser’, usually the first chapter – in the back of the published book, only this ‘teaser’ would be posted on FOF. I hope this helps. Jill

    FOF had a book giveaway and I won Winter Garden by Kristen Hannah. Read it and reviewed it on my blod as well as on the Good Reads list. If you want to check my reviews on my blog you’ll find them under Books in my sidebar.

    Suggestion would be to talk to FOF about a Give-A-Way and ask the winners to review.

      Hi:
      I am not sure who I would contact for this. It doesn’t seem to be on their radar. Thanks for the suggestion. It is a good one.

    It’s best if we can get a release on the book and/or the book itself. Is it your book?
