Review Policy

Review Requests are open!

General information

I accept print ARC’s(Paperback and Hardcovers),  e-books (in epub format). If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. (I am currently accepting only print ARC’s for a few weeks)

Genres


You can check and see if your book is on my TBR  list. If it’s there, then you know I want to read it! You can also browse my Review directory  to get a feel for my interests. 

I accept Adult, YA, and MG fiction in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery
  • Gothic horror
  • Romance
  • Science fiction
  • Contemporary

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

  • Non-fiction
  • Memoirs/modern biographies

  • Extremely political or “hot button” topics
  • Poetry
  • Free verse novels
  • Short story compilations
  • Overtly preachy religious fiction
Accepting Books


If I accept a book for review, that means I will review it. 

I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book at least 2- 3 weeks prior to when you would like the review posted (But there are always exceptions). 

Reviews


I will write a review for almost every book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques. 

I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.

If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book,  why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.  

Review Structure


All reviews will include the following: 

  • Cover art
  • Book stats: Title, author, publisher, release date,
  • My review: What I liked and didn’t
  • Star rating

  1. Hello,

    My name is Christopher Slayton and I’m extremely excited to introduce you to my first ebook, a science fiction thriller titled Chaos Company, in hopes that you will consider it for a review.

    Chaos Company follows a team of genetically enhanced soldiers hunting down a powerful mercenary who killed the team’s leader. During their hunt the team is forced to go AWOL and their abilities will be pushed to their limits as they engage with a ruthless private military company before coming to a final showdown on the Brooklyn Bridge.

    I read through a book review compilation site and after looking through your site I do believe that a review would be great exposure for my ebook and for myself as a writer.

    My ebook can be found at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UG4RK9E
    If you are interested in reading in my work I can email a copy to you for a read and review. Thank you for your time and look forward to your response.

    Respectfully,
    Christopher Slayton

  2. Hey I found your blog through the book review directory – great find in my opinion, I’m loving your blog 🙂
    I was just curious if you would be interested in reading and reviewing my first (and recently published) novel – ‘Chasing Charli’?
    Here is a description for the book on my blog – https://inspirescript.wordpress.com/my-novels/chasing-charli/
    I read your review policy and wasn’t sure whether this would be classified as an ‘issues’ book. The story does revolve around a murder..but I tried to make it witty and a funny read and it is more so focused on Charli’s relationship with her bodyguard.
    The page on my blog has links to Goodreads, as well as Amazon where I believe you can get a copy of the book for free for kindle. If not, I can certainly send you a pdf. version if you are interested 🙂
    Thanks!
