    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Why you should give my Unique Biblical Novel This Christmas:. What can I do to improve?   I already eliminated one of the Amazon capsules for my book (Originally I had a 2nd one before the link list--I replaced it with just a photo.  I also eliminated several links, so, as you can see the link list now has only 3.   I don't know what else I can do, so I'd appreciate any help you can give so it can be featured before the Christmas season.

      It looks like a very interesting novel but, unfortunately, HubPages no longer allows hubs that are purely advertisements. They have a really hard time selling the ads that support HubPages on advertisements and Google has a serious dislike for ads masquerading as articles, editorials, or reviews.

      Most people are leery of author-written reviews. If your ultimate goal is to sell more books (not have this hub featured) you're better off finding other people to review it.

    Indeed, you points are all focused on why you think you wrote a clever and uplifting book.  That is simply not the kind of reason why some stranger will choose to read that book.  People choose books to meet specific spiritual, informational, and/or entertainment goals.  A useful hub would have impartial readers discussing which of these are met by your book.

    It's risky to answer questions like this because most people actually want work approved rather than looked at critically, but I plunged in anyway.  From what I understand of spam, the entire hub has the look of it.  The first sentence of the hub has 104 words (!) and is not well written.  Please don't take offense, been there done that myself.  I become verbose too quickly, but not sure I've made it to 104 words in one sentence.  You might want to rework the entire hub from a different perspective, and if you are promoting your own book, you want to be very careful to write the hub extremely well while following guidelines from the HP Learning Center.  My personal look at a hub like this would be focused more on how well written it is rather than links and ads, which can be ignored.  Also, mentioning your feelings probably isn't a good thing.  Some live out their lives emoting about everything, but if they want to be really useful they will express their passion in ways that offer balanced and purposeful food for thought.  I can see how a book like this could be useful, but for very many to take real interest in it, the facts about it would have to be much more than how anyone feels about it.  So, for instance, what checked and double-checked research went into the scenes?  Have you given serious consideration to any criticism of it?  Questions like that also play into the ability to write a successful hub about the book.  This answer is a bit of a ramble from a quick look at the short hub, but maybe it will help to consider these things.
