Sometimes authors and publishers send me books to review. (Noted on the review post.) The fact that I get a free book in no way influences my review. Neither does my friendship with the author.
If you want me to review your book, contact me first. There are some genres I just won't read.
My favorite genres are:
- Urban Fantasy
- Paranormal Fantasy
- Any kind of Speculative
- Young Adult (realistic and speculative)
- Middle Grade Fantasy
I don't particularly care for:
- Animal Stories
- Gorey, violent or sexy books
Before you contact me about a review or send me a book, know this:
- I like character driven books.
- I am picky. Very picky.
- I don't promise that I will post a review of your book, but I will consider it.
- I don't promise a positive review.
- I don't promise your review will be posted within a certain time frame. (Blog tours are iffy. Depends on my schedule.)
- I will read at least the first 50 pages. After that, no guarantees.
- I will review both print and ebooks.
- I will not return books. You send it on spec.
My book reviews are listed in the sidebar under "Book Reviews by Genre." Also in this list are:
- My Books — books created by me
- My Top Reads — my Top Picks from books I read each calendar year
- z Bibliomania — all things book-related (not just reviews)
- z Reading Lists — the full lists of books I read each year
