I accept either e-books (preferably in mobi and epub, but will accept PDF format), galleys, ARC copies, and physical copies in either paperback or hardcover for review on a limited basis. If you are an author I can’t guarantee that your book will be reviewed nor can I can promise that you’ll receive a favorable review. If you can’t accept criticism please do not submit your book.
In terms of reading genres, my preference is mystery (along with suspense / thrillers), romance (contemporary and historical). I review new adult / young adult and paranormal books on a limited basis. Non-fiction books such as biographies or history tomes will be considered on a case by case basis.
If you are an Indie / Self published author I’d be happy to review your book as long as it adheres to the above information and is professionally edited.
Please note: I will not accept unfinished / unpublished manuscripts.
The review itself will contain:
• cover art
• title of the book and author name
• state if it is a series & what number it is
• rating (# out of 5)
• my review (I always aim to write reviews between 500-800 words or more)
The review will be posted on my blog, Goodreads, LibraryThing and Amazon. If you’d like a review on Smashwords, or Barnes and Noble please let me know.
