Good morning, everyone! A small research on Booksie let me know there are only three review chains. I have no idea who had started the first one or who invented this type of chains, but I find it an excellent idea to get one's work read and even more important, reviewed. I guess we all know how it feels to see the number of reads on a piece go up and burn with the desire to know what the readers have experienced, if the piece is any good, if we need to improve anything. So here I am, stealing the idea for my own purposes.

Okay, so here is the plan. I get to ask for the first review. The person who writes it, specifies it in a comment bellow this text and gets to ask for his/her own. And the one who answers to that can ask for his/her own, again in the comment section here. Any person who enters the chain is supposed to answer to the comment above his/her own. You get the gist, since it's not actually a new concept.


  1. Anyone can participate, irrespective of the age of the writer, the type or length of the story.
  2. Please be polite and respectful.
  3. The reviews given must be thorough. A line doesn't count. The idea of this chain was to help people obtain "reviews" not simple "comments". I reserve the right of being the judge of this, so any comment that doesn't get into the review category gets to be ignored and the person's request for a review gets deleted from this chain. If you want to know what a review is supposed to look like, Felix Fossi has explained it better than I ever would: http://www.booksie.com/editorial_and_opinion/essay/felix_fossi/how-to-give-good-review. Go check it out!
  4. Patience. Someone will finally get to your story, read it and answer to your request.

That's it folks! If you have any questions or remarks, leave a comment on my profile page and I'll get to them as soon as I can!

Have fun!
