Review inquiries must be sent via the form at the bottom of this page. If there's no form, I'm not currently accepting requests.
The reason for this is to provide me with the information I need to decide if your book is a good fit for me, or if there's some area's of improvement I can let you know about. Which benefits us both.
It also gives me—if I choose to accept your request—to have an easy-to-find reference point for all the information I need to my review.
For these reasons, I will not accept any review requests made via social media sites.
I accept requests on a review consideration basis only.
I can not guarantee I will finish reading any book prior to starting it, whether it’s for a review request, or a book I’ve chosen from my lists. If I'm unable to finish a book, it will be moved into my abandoned list on Goodreads and provide an honest review with the reasoning.
Due to the amount of requests I receive, only those I accept will be contacted.
I try my best to read and review within a reasonable time-frame, but I don’t maintain a strict reading schedule. I choose my next piece based on the genre/theme I’m in the mood for, not a date on the calendar.
What can you expect if I review your book?
Every review I write will be an honest reflection of my about the piece, whether those feelings are positive or negative. If I enjoyed the story, I will explain why, and will likely offer praise for particularly clever twists, vivid settings, and well-written characters, while avoiding spoilers. If I didn’t like your piece, I will list the reasons why I didn’t. If portions of the story didn’t work for me, I will explain the reason(s) why it felt wrong, and how it affected the overall story. Negative reviews are the last thing an author wants (trust me, I know) but I owe it to my followers and to you, the author, to be honest. That said, any criticism I have will be focused solely on the book itself, and should not be construed as a personal attack on the author.
What should you do if you disagree with my review or rating?
Take it with a pinch of salt. It won't be the last review you disagree with, because not everyone will like your book.
With the exception of correcting typos or other minor mistakes, my reviews and ratings will remain the same. In requesting a review for your book, you asked for my opinion and I will give it to the best of my ability.
