My initial thought is that this could combine proofreading with an initial review of the MS. This helps the author out with the MS, while giving the reviewer a chance to develop an opinion of the book. Granted, that won't help much with reviewing the final product, but it might be worth something.Stephan H. wrote:Maybe Feldgrau might be able to offer a peer review service in the future? Different members might be on tap (voluntarily of course) to review certain books based on preference/theme and can be given a review copy. They read the book, provide feedback to the author, who in turn is given an opportunity to prepare a response and both are put out as a joint post? Stone & Stone offers a rating scheme and review component to their website, though I guess in the end is really no different then having a review posted on Amazon. Just some thoughts.
Any other ideas?
