UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming backlog of review books in my pile, I am not currently accepting books for review.
The exception to that is if you are an author I have worked with in the past, I will work with you to get your book read in a timely manner, as it fits into my review schedule.
For all you other authors out there with wonderful books, I apologize. I am sure I would love your book but there are just too many out there for me to read them all.
I am more than happy to consider posting a book spotlight with a giveaway, a cover reveal, or a release day post, if the book is one that I would typically read. See below for the books I will and won't read.
I love supporting authors and the wonderful works you create. If I can help in some way, I surely will.
A little bit about me
I love books and I love reading! I started my blog as a work related, sort of training, project. Then it morphed into a blog about the books I have read. And now authors are asking me to read their books!! How awesome is that?
I don't read erotica or books about vampires, werewolves, and zombies. Most non-fiction does not interest me, although I will make exceptions if it's the right subject. I mainly read contemporary fiction, women's fiction, chick-lit, some YA and NA.
I won't agree to read and review a book if the synopsis does not appeal to me. There are just too many books out there to spend time on one that I am probably not going to enjoy reading.
If you send me your book without contacting me first to see if I would be interested, I cannot guarantee that your book will be reviewed. That being said, if you still want to send me a review copy, I am willing to accept an ebook for my Kindle or you can send me an email for more information.
Books received that I am not able to review will be used as giveaways on my site.
I know there are a ton of books out there that are very popular but are not the genres that I like to read. I am willing to consider posting a Book Spotlight for your book as long as you are willing to give at least one copy (print or e-book) for a giveaway.
Examples of what my Book Spotlights contain can be found by searching my blog. The book has to be something that I would not be uncomfortable featuring on my blog, so that means I have the right to not accept a book for a Book Spotlight.
I have heard other authors say that they 'hear voices in their head' and that is how they write their books: the characters are telling their stories. Not being a writer myself, that concept has always intrigued me. When some people hear voices, we get them medical attention, others end up becoming writers. Does this happen to you? How do you come up with your stories?
Contact me via email to submit your book for review consideration or a book spotlight feature.
