If you would like me to review your book:
I am happy to accept books in the form of printed copies or ebooks from authors or publishers in exchange for a review, just send an email to sally906 [at] gmail [dot] com. Please bear in mind that I will not accept every book, as I always have a lot to read, so will only accept those that particularly appeal to me.
I will consider books from most genres, however,
My favourite genres are:
Romance (prefer if it is mixed with another genre e.g. Historical Romance, Paranormal Romance etc.)
Young Adult books (not YA romance though)
Urban and Paranormal Fantasy Adventures aka Modern Fantasy
Paranormal (light and fluffy – not horror)
Dystopian /Apocalyptic (especial YA)
Genres I don’t like:
Summed up – any genre that has cruel or sadistic behaviour; graphic violence, or blood and guts in it; is depressing; lacks any humour at all (even books written about atrocities can have uplifting moments among the horrors).
I will write an honest review but remember that just because the book was sent to me for free does not mean I will praise it. Please understand that a negative review will not contain bashing, but will point out why I, personally, did not enjoy the book, but that others might. I always try and find some reason why I liked a book enough to finish reading it.
If, for some reason, despite my initial interest in the title and the best of intentions the book just doesn’t work for me and am unable to finish reading the book, then in fairness to the author, as opinions are personal ones, a review won’t be forthcoming.
I will post the review on here on my blog, on Goodreads and in The Reading Room (and on Amazon when I remember). My blog posting triggers notifications on both my twitter account and Facebook. I would be happy to post anywhere else the author/publisher would like. I am happy for the author/publisher to share my review with others, though it would be nice if the review, or excerpts thereof, were linked back to my blog.
I cannot give you a time frame of when I will read and review the book although I will make every attempt to have the review up as close to release date as I can. Getting the review out by the date requested depends on what other reading deadlines I have, and how busy at work I am. I work full-time and have family commitments (translation – 3 grandchildren, a husband and a dog) so occasionally may not review your book right away.
Disclaimer: I am not paid to do any of this. Whilst I occasionally receive books for free, in exchange for a review, I make no profit from this website.
