Note: I will not be accepting review copies from authors or publishers until further notice - effective from the 29/11/2010

I am happy to review books by authors wishing to get the word out about their work. If you wish for me to review your book, then please feel free to email me ( with the details of your book including a description. I prefer hard copies of books but will review the occasional ebook if it sparks my interest and is not available in hard copy.

I read a wide variety of books such as general fiction, contemporary literature, young adult, fantasy, science-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, crime novels, non-fiction and historical fiction. The only genres I am not really interested in reviewing are romance, paranormal romance and erotica.

I can not accept every book to review as I just do not have the time, so please don’t be offended if I do not accept your book.

I will do my best to publish a review within 3 months from the day I receive the book in the mail. If the book is an ARC, or you need the review published quickly, please let me know and I will work on getting it done quickly. But please only ask me to do this if it is absolutely necessary.

I write honest reviews and if there are things in your book that I do not like I will say so. Please do not send me a book expecting a glowing review because I am only interested in giving my honest opinion. I do think that every book, however, has good points and I will do my best to bring the good points to my reader’s attention. If I am unable to finished your book, then I will not be able to write a review.

I am also happy to host giveaways so if you are interested in donating a copy of your book, or have any other book related product you want to get out there, let me know.
