Posted on October 11, 2010


Press release:
New York, NY, October 11, 2010 — Book lovers everywhere now have an exciting new resource for book reviews they can trust. The New York Journal of Books ( launched on October 6 to meet the need for original online reviews of the same quality as disappearing print reviews.



“We intend to fill the gap that has resulted from the contraction, and in some cases the total elimination, of esteemed print book reviews,” says founder Ted Sturtz. “Unrestrained by page counts and printing costs, we are dedicated to delivering the most comprehensive detailed book reviews in North America written by credentialed reviewers whose knowledge, insight, voice, and measure of the written word permeate our book profiles.”


Thanks to the broad expertise of the NYJB’s team of reviewers, the free site features an eclectic selection of titles sourced from independent publishers as well as imprints of the largest publishers. To help readers make their book selections, reviews are enhanced with rich media, such as video, audio and book browsing.


Visitors to NYJB will also enjoy the immediacy possible only online. Going forward, reviews will be posted at midnight on the date a book is released. When users discover books they want to read, they’ll find that the ability to purchase is conveniently a click away for a truly one-stop experience.


NYJB Publisher, Lisa Rojany Buccieri, author of more than 100 books for children and young adults, lead author of Writing Children’s Books for Dummies, and owner of Editorial Services of Los Angeles, noted “fierce attention to the editing and newreviewer selection process will ensure that, as the volume of reviews grows, the quality of reviews will be maintained.”  She added, “At the same time, we also take great joy in the panorama of reviewers on our panel and their truly unique voices.  They don’t simply judge books. They engage, inform, and even entertain our readers.”


Advertisers on the site have the choice of appearing on major landing pages to reach a broad audience, or appearing in specific genres (for example, romance or military) that reach a highly targeted demographic or enthusiasts and professionals (for example, cooking, wine, or technology).
