Blog / Book Review Policy

Starting Aug 1, 2017 - I will be charging a $2.50 (Per book) Posting/Promo Charge that covers posting the review on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or a Publisher/book page. (All reviews will be posted to my blog, Google +, and Twitter as usual without charge. The additional charge only applies if you wish to have me post your review to the additional promo sites.) 

So, what exactly is the point of a ten page review? Obviously it's not the story itself, the effectiveness of the plot development, the quality of character development or the overall talent of the author. What I'm reviewing is the author's ability to draw me into their story in just a few pages. Can they give me a sense of place and time, set the tone of the story, make me care about their protagonist, and give me impelling reason to keep reading. In today's competitive market, an author only gets a few pages to make all that happen for a reader. The rating reflects my view on those elements. It doesn't reflect on the whole book, since I haven't read the entire story. 

How to submit your book for review
 (This information is essential since I will only be choosing books that fit my  preference and blog.) I like to read many genres, with the exception of erotica, erotica romance, dark thrillers, dark sci-fi, stories heavily focused on magic or the paranormal, demons, vampires, ghosts, SM, alternative life styles, etc.

I read fiction and non fiction, both adult and children's literature, craft, cooking, and travel books. I prefer books in electronic format. PDF files of your published book will do since I read mostly on my computer. No restriction on publication date. (New releases or those that have been around the block a few times are all welcome.)

Please be patient, as this blog feature has quickly become astonishingly popular! I will respond to your emails ASAP.

  • Send the following information to me at
  • You may submit up to three books simultaneously.

  • Book reviews are posted throughout the week.
  • All reviews are based on my personal opinion as a reader. My ratings will reflect that opinion. While I try to be fair and professional, I do not guarantee a high rating for your book. Nor will I change a review rating once I've posted it on my blog.
***Also, please check back after your review has posted and respond to any comments you may have received. 

FTC regulations: please note that I do receive a fee for posting my reviews to my social media accounts. However, I grade every book on my personal, honest opinion without regard of posting compensation using my review rating system.
