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!

Books featuring explicit sex scenes

Books featuring animal abuse or children being sexualized (no exceptions, sorry–these are just really triggering topics for me!)

GIF: I hate these word crimes

Books with a significant amount of grammar or spelling mistakes

These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For meme saying Did you write an urban fantasy book? I'm not the blogger you're looking for

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!)
