Philip Newey, Writer

Being an independent and/or self-published author can be challenging. One of the main challenges is to get people to notice our work. On these pages I am posting reviews. I will not publish reviews of books that I consider to be worth less than three stars, as it is not my intention to bring adverse attention to anyone’s creative work. I have recently adopted a ‘half star’ system which I thing is fairer.
