BOOK REVIEW CRITERIA

Genres:
  • Paranormal
  • Scifi
  • Fantasy
  • Most sub-genres thereof (except middle grade/children’s)

I don’t accept:

  • Zombie stories.  I just have no interest in them.  Sorry…
  • Epic Fantasy
  • Metaphysical
  • Dystopian
  • Speculative Fiction
  • The middle/end of a series when I haven’t read the earlier books.
  • Stories with multiple 1st person POVs

Formats (from distributor, please):

  • ePub
  • Kindle
  • ARCs (ePub or Kindle preferred, but PDF accepted)
Policies:
  • Polished works only.
  • I read a sample of each book before deciding to review.
  • I use Goodreads to manage book reviews, both in posting reviews and tracking review requests.   If a book is not on Goodreads, I will not review it.
  • Requesting a book does not guarantee I’ll review.
  • I do not give reviews less than 3 stars.
  • Time permitting, I may email the author a separate critique including extra details.
  • I try to respond quickly to requests, but it may take weeks/months depending on my workload (I also tend to respond in batches).
  • I will not email if I choose not to review a book (whether before or after requesting an ebook copy).
  • I try to read and review in a timely manner, but I also read based upon whims.  To optimize your chances of getting a good review, I won’t read a book I don’t currently feel like reading.  Reading a book I’m not currently in the mood for could adversely affect the review.
You can follow me on Goodreads to see where I am with your book.  I have 7 relevant shelves: Read, Currently Reading, Review Requests to Read, Review Requests to Sample, Review Request Blurb Screening, Offers to Review, and Books Put Down Midway.

I also encourage you to make a listing at my other site: IndieGalley. It’s free, and gets you in front of our growing list of reviewer members.

    How long should the short excerpt be, and should it be from the beginning of the novel?

  2. Brett Dent says:

    I love how simple your policy and form is. I hope it makes things just as easy for you as it does for us submitters – many thanks!

  3. TinaE says:

    Thank you so much for considering to read the book. Looking forward to working with you!

  4. Chandler says:

    Would you be interested in reviewing Wolf Code? It’s near-future SF with bits of romantic adventure and animal fantasy.

  5. Hi, just to let you know your form does not display. It only shows ‘[ninja_forms_display_form id=2]’. I suppose it could just be my browser. Anyway, this is the end of my comment.

Oh, you so know you want to...
