Thank you for considering me as potential reviewer for your novel/novels! Please read the information below before submitting a request for review.
About the Reviewer
I am a Canadian resident and the majority of the reviews will be done by me. Occasionally, I have guest reviewers who are situated in the United States and Europe.
While I am open to many genres, I am partial to the following:
I am over the moon for Non-fiction that reads like fiction, particularly if there’s an adventurous element like Lost City of Z or Into Thin Air.
Timing for finishing the book and providing a review will be communicated with you when the novel is received. Unless otherwise stated/requested, all reviews will be published within 90 days of receiving the book.
If I accept a review copy of a book, this does not guarantee that it will be finished. I do strive to finish each and every book that I start, but if I have read 20% of the book (dependent on length) and I feel like it’s a slog, I will usually put it aside. There may be no formal review for books I did not finish, but I will notify the provider of the review copy by email.
Accepted Formats & Promotion
I will accept epubs and print copies for books that are to be reviewed. A preference will be given to print copies. All book reviews will appear on my blog and be cross promoted on Goodreads and Twitter (with Amazon reviews available at my discretion). Print copies of books will additionally be showcased on Instagram and will be up put into consideration for the book of the month for my book club (20-30 members at any given time).
Every review in which I had a review copy sent to me will include a disclosure statement above the fold. All content and opinions in these reviews belong to me.
I have Amazon links within my reviews. All affiliate links that are embedded in the text will be marked with “Buy on”. So for example, if the link went to Amazon, the affiliate link would say “Buy on Amazon”.
All reviews have a Amazon kindle preview at the bottom of the page which help to pay for site costs and the cost of books.
I rate books based on a 10 point scale where 10 is the best and means the book is highly recommended. This scale reflects my own personal feelings on the novel and may not match up with the general consensus on other review sites.
I will always write reviews that are true to my own feelings. If I hated a book, I will say so. While I will not personally attack an author and while I will remain polite, I reserve the right to be critical about review copies that I have received.
When contacting me for a review, please include the following in your request:
1) Title of the Book and a short synopsis.
2) Length of book in pages, not words.
3) Time frame for the review (if there is one)
