Publishers Daily Reviews was founded in 2015 by Don Sloan, a professional writer, editor and book reviewer.

He has written three books of fiction — The Sisters, The Horror Hunters, and The DeathBorn (coming in 2023), and has also published three nonfiction books — The Disability Application Guide200 Ways to Get the Reviews You Need and Ten Steps to Living Stress-Free.

He currently lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina with his wife of 45 years. She teaches at-risk youth at the county high school.

He started a Habitat for Humanity affiliate 12 years ago in his rural Appalachian community and is proud to say the affiliate has completed seven new houses and is nearing completion on a eighth one. In addition, the affiliate has remodeled and rehabilitated twelve other homes and helped dozens of elderly residents make much-needed repairs through its Brush With Kindness program. Habitat for Humanity’s goal is to make a difference for disadvantaged families  in the High Country, one house at a time.

Don is a monthly contributor to the Midwest Book Review, has served as a contributor to  BlueInk Review, and often helps writers who want to gain national attention get placed in the New York Review of Books.


Don has been joined recently by an acclaimed colleague from the Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan.

Writers and authors may interact with — and be reviewed or edited by — Ms. Donovan, whose incisive, compelling reviews have been noted — and quoted — in major publications around the world.

At last count, she says she has worked with over 300 publishers on more than 50,000 books in more than 35 years in the industry.

It is a pleasure to welcome Diane as a contributing reviewer and editor on Publishers Daily Reviews.
