Review Policy

* I am currently CLOSED to review requests, while I finish up those I have already committed to.* I will open back up in June and you can request a review then. Please make sure your book is less than 40,000 words before you request a review.

Review Policy:

All books must be 40,000 words or less. That means if they are 40,001, then do not request a review.
Genres I am willing to review…

• Horror
• Young Adult, New Adult, Adult Romance
• Action and Adventure/Dystopian
• Paranormal Romance
• Fantasy

• Children’s Books (I may not post Children’s Books to this site, but I will post a review on Amazon and Goodreads).

And Poetry. I will post all reviews to Amazon and Goodreads

Basically anything except Historical Fiction, or Non-Fiction. As I think of it, I will add it to the list.

Also, I’m not into fairies, elves, or leprechauns either. There are always exceptions to the rules.

I reserve the right to tell you if I couldn’t finish it. I give everyone the first ten pages. If I’m not sold by then, I may not be able to give it a decent review.

I enjoy books that have action and adventure and romance. So I’m more than likely going to rate those higher than other books.
I am not big on lengthy descriptions in a story. I’d like to think I have a certain amount of intelligence to figure out  what you are trying to say without you going on and on about the landscape. If that’s you, I’m not the reviewer for   you.

Don’t expect a lengthy review. If I like it, I’ll say why. I’m not going to rewrite a synopsis of your book in my review.

I reserve the right to post reviews on my own personal time. I am married, with three kids, a dog (thinking about getting him a playmate) and on top of all of that, I am an author as well, and work as a teacher. The fact that I am   even  attempting to help other authors by reviewing is insanity in itself.

Understand, this is to help my fellow authors. It is not to bash anyone’s writing. I am very picky about what I read so more than likely it’s not you, it’s me.

Also, I’m all about sharing resources, so if I think I know of something you would be interested in, I will recommend  it. But in no way feel obligated to use it. I just like to help out.

If after all of this, you think your book fits my requirements, then by all means, fill out the form below

Review Request

or email

with synopsis and word count of your book. If I am interested, I will request a review copy.

    1. Yes. Sorry. It only ensures I can read and review the book in a timely manner with all the other things I have going on. If I take on anything longer, I’d have so many books on my “did not finish list” as I am a picky reader. But it’s easier and a lot less painless to read something for a few hours and move on.
