What Readers are Saying About Hidden Gems

I appreciate how organized the HG team is and respect your professionalism. I feel privileged to be a member as an ARC reader. Keep up the good work.

Hidden Gems is the best ARC team that I have participated in. They put you in control of selecting the genre and book you are willing to review as they become available. Many ARC groups are for a specific author or you must read everything you are sent regardless if it’s something you want to read or not. With Hidden Gems you only request what you are interested in. The process is so simple and organized. You know exactly when to expect the ARC to be sent and when it’s due. HG’s variety of authors has exposed me to some that I hadn’t read before and am grateful to have reviewed.

I love being an ARC reader for Hidden Gems! You get a variety of different genres and authors. And you can pick and choose which books you want to read. And I love that they email you to remind you the book has been published. If I were reviewing them I’d give them 5 stars!

Being included in that list was a fantastic – and totally free – way to drive potential customers to your own book.  In the last few weeks, Amazon… Read More >
