Queries

Please note: I prefer paperback copies of horror fiction and audio download codes for horror fiction. It's not because I'm greedy (I donate them to my library). Reading on an eReader for too long triggers migraines and causes eyestrain and it takes me far longer to get through a book that way. If you are outside of the US and/or your book is epub only I will consider it on a limited basis because I realize the shipping is insanely expensive and I am not a complete monster :)

About The Reviews . . . 

Hi there, thanks for visiting! My name is Laurie and in the past I've been a reviewer for All About Romance and Horror After Dark. Now I do my own thing here as well as contribute to the Ladies of Horror Fiction where we promote horror fiction written by women via various projects.

I LOVE books and there is nothing I love more than spreading the word about them. I grew up reading King, Koontz, McCammon, Barker and Poppy Z. Brite when other kids were hanging around outside. Please know that these reviews aren't meant to be a reliable dissection of literary treasures written to sell books. They're written for fellow bookworms whose reading time is precious.

All of my reviews will always be based purely on whim, fancy and mood. They are not to be taken too seriously. Sometimes I use gif's, sometimes not, sometimes I'm long-winded, sometimes I'm a little lazy. Hey, you get what pay for around here. 

If you've read a few of my reviews and you still want a review, the odds are much higher that you know how I operate and you might just have something I'd love to review. Please remember I post the good, the bad and all of the stuff in the middle and will gleefully post it everywhere.If, for some crazy reason, you still want a review of your audiobook, paperback or horror movie please send an email to barklesswagmore@live.com

What Do I Read?
  • Horror & Dark Fiction 
What Don't I Read?
  • Everything else
  • Books with a cliffhanger
  • Mid-series books
Please do not ask me to make an exception for your work.

What Formats Are Acceptable?
  • Paperbacks, Audiobook codes or MP3's or Downloads
  • Please, I beg of you, NO ebook requests unless your book in unavailable in paper.
What Do I Watch?

Horror films and horror tv shows. Yep, that's it. If you'd like to send me a DVD, I'd be happy to give it a viewing. Horror film reviews are typically run on a Friday. You can email me at barklesswagmore@live.com. Please put HORROR MOVIE REVIEW in the subject line otherwise it may be missed.

When Will Reviews Be Posted?

I will not take on more than I can handle so you may not hear from me immediately. Please don't take it personally. Turn-around time is typically 30 - 45 days once I contact you and unless I state otherwise. You can see what I'm currently reading by checking out my sidebar to the left.

What Does DNF Mean and Will it Happen to Me?


DNF is when I do not finish a book. It's a horrible, mean thing to do to a book but sometimes it must be done. Not all books resonate with every reader for various reasons. I reserve the right to DNF any book received in for review and will sometimes write a review saying why it drove me to such drastic measures. If you are not okay with this please do not submit your book. 

Where Will Reviews Be Posted?

Reviews will be posted here and at Amazon, Goodreads, Booklikes and Horror After Dark (if applicable). A tweet and an Instagram post will go out when I receive physical #bookmail, again when I start reading and again when I finish the review. Please note, life happens and acceptance of a review copy does not guarantee a review.
