I can be contacted for requests by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the "Contact Me" gadget on the home screen. Please include a synopsis, book cover, and requested time frame for posting. Please do not email me your file (mobi preferred) until after I have agreed to review it. If I don't have the time to review your work, I will still post an author promo or author spotlight.
If you want a promo only, such as author or character interview, guest posts, excerpt, cover reveal, new release, or overall spotlight, please email me the same info required for reviews (without the review file).
Requests must abide by the standards listed below. I would not be comfortable featuring a novel I wouldn't read unless it is contracted through one of the promo sites I work with.
When I'm not writing, I'm reading (or eating, eating is VERY important, as is sleeping). I will read just about anything, but I do have my limits. My current favorite is Paranormal Romance. Yes, I love the idea of gorgeous alien men coming to cherish women as their life mates...sue me! I love romance period, but I get all warm and fuzzy for Sports Romance, New Adult Romance, African American Romance, Urban Romance, Interracial Romance, and College Romances. Maybe I should have just left it at "romance, period," huh? LOL! I love a good crisis, but I hate a cheater, and I'm okay with cliff hangers (as long as the next book is promised to me and it isn't a year away). While romance is my first true love, I'll read just about anything with a good plot. However, there are a few genres that I won't review:
- War (Military Romances are case by case)
- Non-fiction (Case by case depending on the topic)
If you are unsure of what category your novel would fall into, just email me.
My Rating Scale
5 stars - Absolutely loved it! Would recommend it to anyone even though I hate the author for ending it! I would read it again and this book absolutely could not be any better. Because of this book, the literary gods are smiling down on us and I would buy this author's work on name credit alone.
4 stars - Great book! It flowed smoothly with a great plot and great characters. I would recommend it to certain people who liked the genre. It may not be for everyone but those who do read it won't be disappointed.
3 stars - It was okay. It may have had some typos or the plot may have been a little too slow (even though it had a good story line). It could definitely be better an I will state how.
I won't rate anything less than 3 stars! My goal is to be honest, but not to crush any authors. If I feel that your book is less than 3 stars, I will not post the review. Also, I reserve the right to not post a review on my blog. However, I will do my best to email the author and let them know why I will not post a review (this will not always happen, but I'll do my best).
