Indie Book Reviews

Indie Book Reviews Status –  OPEN JUNE 2022 – I’M OPEN TO REVIEWS AGAIN BUT CHECK THE GUIDELINES BELOW – NOVELLAS AND SHORTER BOOKS ARE PREFERABLE RIGHT NOW

As an independently published author I know the score when it comes to finding those ever so important reviews, and so with that in mind I review books for fellow wordsmiths, plus as a writer, I kind of like reading and discovering new stuff. 

If you are on the look out for more reviews then please do get in touch via the contact section and do your best to convince me why I should read your book. Have a scroll through some of my blog posts and check out my own books to get an idea of what I could possibly like. Following this blog is optional but may increase your chances I say yes, this also applies to my social media accounts too. I am always happy to follow back a fellow creative. Please read the guidelines below, don’t just blindly apply.  

Submission Guidelines

Check the status at the top of this page before submitting. If it says closed, I won’t respond as I’m pretty busy right now. However I would be more than happy to feature an excerpt of your work if you get in touch via the submit an article page. 

 

  • Right now I am extremely busy with writing, content creating on Patreon and generally trying to live so I would prefer to be reading and reviewing shorter books that are mostly novella length or less. I am okay with reviewing books a little longer so this will be determined on a case by case basis.
  • If I agree to review your book, I expect to receive a copy for free in exchange for that review (digital version only). Contact me first about your book before sending any material.  * I don’t mind paying to download an e book every now and then. At least this way I can review your work on Amazon as a Verified Purchase. 
  • I am open to reading anything as long as it isn’t graphic erotica and no longer than 100,000 words – unless you can really really convince me otherwise. I will take on a longer book every so often but as mentioned novellas are preferable right now. 
  • I will post my review on Amazon UK, Goodreads and on this blog. I can also post to BookBub if you require it.
  • Reading takes time but I will do my best to get through your book in no more than 3 weeks, longer books make take a bit more time. 
  • If you follow this blog and connect with me via other social media (FB/Twitter) I will more likely choose to review your book. Then I can also tag/mention you when that review is complete.
