I am currently ACCEPTING review requests from authors, however, I am very selective about the books I am choosing to review.
I currently review books for NetGalley.com, Edelweiss and Bookrooster.
Upon completion the review of your book with be posted at minimum on my blog, as well as Goodreads and Amazon. Additional locations are available upon request. I maintain accounts at Barnes and Noble and Booklikes.com.
*If you would like me to consider your book for review – please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Prior to emailing me a request, please review the genres/themes listed below and ensure that your book falls within an accepted category
*In the header of the email, please put Review Request: Your name and book title.
*In the book of the email, provide a brief synopsis (no more than 50 words) and why you would like me to review your book.
*DO NOT send a copy of your book until I respond to your request for a review
*I do use my guidelines as a method of weeding out people who can’t follow directions (what can I say, its the military training in me…)
*I reserve the right to refuse a request for a review.
*I will CONTACT YOU if I decide to review your book after reading your request email. If you do not hear from me, then it is likely I do not have time to review your book.
Like many people, I am only human. I work full-time and attend grad school. I will endeavor to review books within two weeks of receiving the copy, or will contact you to let you know otherwise.
*I believe in honesty when it comes to my reviews. My review average on Goodreads is 3.49/5 stars. I rarely give 5 star reviews, but do give 3/4 star reviews on a regular basis
Review Rating Breakdown
*5 star review is rarely given and its a book that sticks with me even 2-3 months (or more) after reading.
*4 star review is a highly entertaining read, that I will recommend to most readers (depending on likes/dislikes)
*3 star review is a solid read, but I may have had minor issues with storyline/writing style
*2 star review is an ok read…I will rarely recommend to fellow readers unless I know a specific reason as to why I should recommend
*1 star review is a read that I disliked but finished
*DNF – I do write DNF reviews – If I start a book and am unable to complete it, a review will be posted stating as such, with a brief statement of issues with the book.
*No rating will be assigned to books where I have not completed at least 50%
