I am happy to be contacted with a view to reading and reviewing books. Due to dexterity problems, I only read on kindle. I will consider most genres, but fantasy, horror and sci-fi are really not my kind of thing, although I have dabbled in lighter paranormal reads. If I accept to read your novel, I will give you a rough guideline as to when I shall be able to read it. If, however, I cannot complete the book then no review shall be offered.
I am very happy to be invited to take part in Blog Tours and / or Blog Blitzes, either by offering a review or an extract or a giveaway.
PLEASE NOTE: What I offer is a review* and not a critique**
review* – an article which gives a personal opinion about a new book, play etc.
Preferred genres – in no particular order:
- Crime, especially police procedurals
- Mystery, including ‘cozy’ and historical
- Romantic Comedy
- Family Saga
- Amish and Quaker
I always provide honest reviews – professional, not personal. I do not include spoilers in my reviews but rather give a brief outline of the story plus my opinions on my experience as a reader.
In addition to inclusion in this blog, I share my completed review on the following:
- Facebook, my own timeline
- Facebook, my own closed book group.
And also (where applicable) on the day of publication (for arc’s) or when my review is completed for those already released:
Please do not be offended if I do not accept your book for review – this is usually because of time constraints. As much as I try to elasticate my days, I haven’t quite managed it yet!
You can contact me here. I will always try to get back to you within 48 hours, outwith that please feel free to remind me.
