IndieReader’s reviewers are tough, but fair, and they won’t judge your book as compared to other self-published titles, but against other books, period.
Our ratings are based on the following criteria, although reviewers are able to award partial stars (i.e. a 1.3 or a 4.7), rather than rounding up or down to a whole or half number.
One star = Really bad; there’s a reason this book is self-pubbed
Two stars = Mediocre, but one or two bright spots
Three stars = Good; worth reading
Four stars = Very good
Five stars = Excellent; must-read
