Hi there!

Viga Boland. Author, Book & Product Reviewer, Speaker & Podcaster.

Viga Boland here. That’s me smiling out at you from my photo on the left. There’s a lot of things I could say here but I know you’re busy so I’ll keep this as brief as possible. But let’s get this one thing out of the way first:

If I’m nothing else, I’m honest. Being such, I believe in full disclosure about the books and products you will read about in my reviews. So let me state right from word go that yes, some, but not all, of the reviews featured on Vianvi include links to certain products on which  I will earn an affiliate commission. I will earn that commission on any purchases you make by clicking on the links I’ve included in the posts. So, as a retiree living on old age pension, let me thank you in advance for helping me out by purchasing through my affiliate links.

There! Now that’s out of the way, let’s tell you what else you need to know:

Your hostess at VIANVI BOOK and PRODUCT REVIEWS is me,  Viga Boland.

I am the author of 6 books, 4 of which are memoirs. You can learn just about everything about me through my websites at http://www.vigaboland.com and http://www.memoirabilia.ca . If you’re not in too much of a hurry, you might start with watching my video at the bottom of this page.




I have been a book reviewer since my 20’s. Currently, I am a paid book reviewer for both READERS FAVORITE and INDIE READERMany of the book reviews published and podcast on Vianvi were originally written for Readers Favorite. So if you are an author and would like to have me review your book, you can request me as a reviewer if you have submitted for a review at either site, or have entered your book in the Readers Favorite Book Awards. If you would prefer me to give a personal review of your book, please email me directly using the CONTACT link in our menu and tell me about your book.


As much as I love to read and write, like most women, I love to shop. My interests as a shopper include vintage jewelry, health and beauty products, fashion, iPhone apps, informative websites, useful kitchen utensils, nifty time-saving gadgets, self-help, healthy life diets and travel.

Helping Vianvi visitors learn about products I have personally used and endorse, and/or have investigated thoroughly, is what my PRODUCT REVIEWS aim to achieve. Again, as I pointed out above, some of these products are sold by companies who support reviewers like me by allowing me to be one of their affiliate marketers. I appreciate the opportunity they have afforded me to locate and review these products for my visitors and followers, and thank you for using any links I provide to purchase those products.

As with the book reviews, I welcome any enquiries from non-affiliate associated businesses who would like me to review their products on this site. Please use the CONTACT link in our menu to send me a sample of your product for review on Vianvi.

That’s all I have to say for now.  I hope you’ll subscribe to the blog and podcasts. Any questions? Comments? Send them in via the  CONTACT US  form or page.
