I accept print copies and Kindle copies for review, though print is always preferable (note: I live in the United States). I will not share or sell any work sent to me unless given permission.
My preferred reads are Young Adult, Middle-Grade Fantasy, and Adult Urban Fantasy. I do enjoy graphic novels, though I rarely review them on the blog. I don't typically read (or have any liking for) horror, verse, religious novels, non-fiction, or self-help books.
You can look over past reviews at the blog for a better idea of whether or not I am a good fit for your book. It is important to know that I am the right reviewer for you.
What to include in the review request
At minimum, please include the following in your review request:
- Book title, author, and synopsis
- Book cover
- Link to the book's Goodreads page
Optional (but preferable, especially if I haven't worked with you before):
- First chapter to the book or an excerpt, in the body of the email if possible
If you include anything else, please place it after all this, so I don't have to scroll through the email to find them.
What to expect from my review
- Book cover and title
- Author, publisher, and links to their sites if I can find them
- Publication date and page number
- Book synopsis (typically as shown on Goodreads)
- Other details if requested (book trailer, excerpt, giveaway, etc.)
My review will be posted at this blog, Goodreads, Random Buzzers, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
Again, keep in mind that I will leave a review that conveys my honest opinion.
Please understand that I cannot accept every request sent to me, though I do read every one that is sent to me. Also note, because it has become too time-consuming, I am no longer responding to requests unless I am accepting them. I am usually good at checking email and will typically respond to emails within a couple days, though it may take a few weeks when I hit an examination period. As much as I love books and want to work with them every day of my life, I'm a student first!
