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. From the beginning of 2015 I have decided not to publish reviews of book to which I cannot give at least 4 stars. My reading time is limited, and I must use it wisely. I use a ‘half star’ system here which I thing is fairer, although I round up for other sites.
