Hi authors! Before you ask for a review, please keep the following in mind:
I’m open to almost anything – but I mostly read Fantasy and SF.
No romance, urban fantasy or paranormal fantasy or YA books. Those genres are just not for me.
Hardback > Paperback >> Audible audiobook > Amazon eBook (Gift/Promo Code) > Mobi/ePub file
Why? Well, because I prefer to read physical books, and I also listen to audiobooks a lot. Also, if it is going to be an eBook, I’d rather it be on my Amazon account, so it syncs progress and notes across apps and devices, which makes my life easier. The higher up this chain your book’s format is, the more likely it is that I’ll accept it for review.
When will the review be published?
No guarantees. It might be anywhere from a few days to a few months. Generally, I will try my best to do the review within a month at least, but I may get sidetracked – by other books, or mundane life stuff.
And finally, I’m going to have to be honest, to myself and to my readers. So if you take the trouble of sending me a copy, and I find it to be unreadable trash, that’s what I’ll say on my review.
