Thanks so much for stopping by and thinking of me to read and review your book!
I understand the need to market a book and the vital role bloggers play in marketing. I do not post any books I would not personally read or recommend! If you’re not sure whether or not your book would fit my tastes, it never hurts to reach out anyway–I don’t bite! 😉
I do have several guidelines for review requests to ensure that we are a good match for each other, so kindly read this page first and then make use of my handy contact form at the bottom!
My audience: Older MG and YA with some adult crossover in the fantasy genre
Who I review: Traditional and self-pubbed authors whose books match my reading tastes
My favorite genres:
Fantasy, including MG, YA, and adult epic fantasy
YA sci-fi (sorry, no MG or adult!)
YA contemporaries, both romantic and non-romantic
Books set in or about Japan
Graphic novels in any of the aforementioned genres (fantasy, YA sci-fi, contemporary, or set in Japan)
Bonus points if your book has representation for LGBTQIA+ or disabled characters. 🙂
I am NOT a good fit for:
Books featuring explicit sex scenes
Books featuring animal abuse or children being sexualized (no exceptions, sorry–these are just really triggering topics for me!)
Books with a significant amount of grammar or spelling mistakes
Portal fantasy, urban fantasy, or paranormal romance, or adult books that are not in the fantasy genre (sorry, just not interested!)
Audiobooks (I just don’t listen to ’em! I’d be happy to consider an ebook or paperback, however!)
Authors and publishers are also encouraged to browse my archives and look at individual reviews of books I’ve written.
If you think I would be a good fit for your book, please fill out the form below, including your name, email, book metadata (title, genre, and word count–not page count!), the description of your book (otherwise known as back cover copy), and a link to the book on Amazon so that I can read the Kindle sample and see if I would like the book.
NOTE: This is very, very important. I need to be able to sample the Kindle version before saying that I will review a book, so if your book is still on pre-order or not available on Kindle for some reason, then you must provide me with some other method of sampling the first chapter, either by giving me a link to it on Google Docs or posting the first chapter on your website. Submissions without some way for me to sample your writing will be auto-rejected. Sorry, no exceptions!
Optionally, you can also provide me with comp titles. What is a comp title, you may ask? A comp title is a book, TV show, or movie that is similar to yours (in theme, or a certain character, or the style of storytelling, or plot elements, etc.) For more information about comp titles, check out this handy Youtube video by Bookends Literary Agency on how to find comp titles.
If I think I can give your book at least four stars, I will reply to you and ask you to send the full book. If I don’t think I could give your book a good rating, I will give you a quick breakdown of my reasons (eg. there were too many grammar mistakes in the first few chapters, I couldn’t connect with the narrator, or there were just too many jumps in logic and I couldn’t follow the plot, things like that)
NOTE: I give honest reviews, not fake ones! I do not guarantee a four-star review, though I do try my best to only accept books I know I will enjoy. A lot of books look really good up until about chapter three, at which point they promptly fall apart. In these sorts of cases, I reserve the right to not post the review on my blog. I only want to post about books that I would personally recommend.
Regardless of the star rating it earns, any books I accept for review through this process will also have the review posted to both Amazon and Goodreads. (In light of recent harassment claims against book bloggers, I should add that if an author is unable to handle a negative or critical review of their book, they should not seek out my review service!)
Want to contact me about something besides asking for a book review? You can send me an email at corinnemorierauthor at gmail dot com. (spelled out to avoid spam) This could include blog tour invitations, fan mail, sponsorship requests, or just general inquiries.
DO NOT SEND BOOK REVIEW REQUESTS DIRECTLY TO MY EMAIL. All book review requests must be sent via my contact form. Any book review requests not sent through my contact form will be deleted unread.
