About The Reviews . . .
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 and spent many a summer day reading beneath a weeping willow tree. I still try to do that whenever I can. 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 and they will always been painfully honest. I may not give every book five stars but I can promise you an honest review and promotion via Goodreads, Twitter and Instagram as I read your work. And the more eyeballs that see it on the internet, the better!
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 or your 2019 horror novel release please send an email to email@example.com.
What Do I Read?
- Horror & Dark Fiction
What Don't I Read?
- Everything else (I pick up "other" stuff from the library when I need a horror break)
- 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 and eBooks if paper is unavailable or cost prohibitive.
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 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 Goodreads, Booklikes, Amazon (upon request) and Ladies of Horror Fiction & 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.
