Allena's class offered a plethora of valuable information on the book review market and how to break into it. Shortly after taking her class I was offered free Advanced Reader Copies of books by a well known author. She also helped me build published clips of reviews at the end of the class by offering all her students a chance to appear on her page as guest reviewers. I highly recommend her class. It is well worth the investment. ~ Ann Schwarz, WOW! How to Become a Paid Book Reviewer student
