I will review just about any age or genre of book. Since I am an eclectic reader I will read just about anything. If it has anything to do with witchcraft then please don’t send it to me. I will occasionally review graphic novels as long as there is a good proportion of words to graphics.
I prefer books in physical form but I am open to e-books.
I DO review self-published authors. As a self published author myself I know how difficult it is to get people to review your book.
Things to know before you contact me: I review almost every book sent to me. I say almost because if I find it vulgar or offensive I will not read it. I agree to read a minimum of 50 pages before I make a decision not to finish it. I never promise anyone (author or publisher) a positive review. What you get from me is my honest opinion. However I try to make informed choices for books I review. Therefore, I cut down on the number of negative reviews, which are rare. I try to always find something positive in the book.
There is no guarantee that I will get to your book immediately. I read a lot of books and I review them whether they come from my own shelves, the local library or from you. I can’t promise to get to any one book in a given time frame. Having said that , I will tell you that on average it is within a month of receiving the book. If it is for a book tour which has a deadline, then I will most definitely bump it up the list to make that deadline.
Blog Tours: I do participate in blog tours some of the time. As a teacher my life is already busy and some months I just can’t participate. Please go ahead and consider me. If I like the book and author, and the time of the tour will fit my schedule then I am more than happy to say yes.
Not My Favorites: In the past I have read self-help and how–to books. I won’t necessarily say no to these if the topic is one of interest to me. However, I am not interested in business, economics or politics.
Publishers and Authors: If you’re interested in sending me a review copy of your book, I’m happy to hear from you. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
