Contact and Review Policy

Please feel free to contact me if you have a book you would like me to review.

In terms of genres, I prefer not to review:

  • memoirs
  • poetry
  • short stories
  • fantasy
  • paranormal
  • erotica
  • steam punk
  • science fiction
  • westerns
  • romance
  • rural fiction including rural romance
  • Christian literature
  • YA & children’s books
  • military
  • horror

Unless they are of my own choosing. You may see a review for a book falling into one of the above categories appear on my blog but this is not an invitation to ignore these categories and send a request anyway. These categories are not negotiable, there will be a different reviewer out there that will be much more suited to reviewing your book.

I am currently not accepting self-published titles. Please don’t send me a request if you are self-published.

You must also be happy to provide me with a copy if you would like a review as I will not purchase a book to review it just because you asked me to. Turnaround times vary and preference is given to publisher requests for new releases. I reserve the right to not post a review on a book I particularly dislike or find offensive. I will contact you separately if this occurs.

When you submit a review request here, your name, email, and the details of your request are saved on the server. They are stored to help me view, manage, and process your review request. I do not use your data for any other purposes. This also applies to any comments you leave on blog posts and if you sign up to receive notifications of new posts by email.

If you would like to discuss books socially, you can find me in the following places:
