Giveaway Policy:

If you would like to organize a giveaway, please fill out the form on the “contact” page. I organize giveaways for books in all formats (e-books, softcover, and hardcover.), gift cards, and and assortment of book related swag. The author/publisher is responsible for supplying and giving away the prizes.

Giveaways and events that include giveaways receive priority over all other events. (If a giveaway is held in conjunction with an interview, there will be an option to have a banner made out of one of the author’s book covers included in the event post.)

Once I have completed the event post, I will send you a confirmation email with all of the details and a shortlink to the post/giveaway page. Please share the links on your website or any other social media site you are a member of because this provides more promotion for the event.


Review Policy:

 Most of my reviews are of YA/NA novels, but those are not the only types of books that I am willing to review.

I don’t read or review erotica and sexually explicit books, but I have no problem with books that contain violence, profanity, and mild sexual content.  I accept e-books (My preferred file format is Mobi/Kindle, (I can also make ePub and PDF files work if necessary.), paperback, and hardback books in exchange for reviews. ARC (advanced read copy) are also accepted.

 I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into writing a book; and although I will only give my honest opinion of any book that I review, I’m not interested in bashing authors  or their products. I want to give authors a reason to write, not put them in their place just because their book wasn’t for me. My reviews are about what the author communicated to me.

If you would like me to review a book, please fill out the form on the “contact” page. I only respond to offers that I am legitimately interested in, but I thank everyone for their offers.

I do not accept money in exchange for reviews, and once again I will only give my honest opinion.

After I have read the book and posted my review, I will send you a confirmation email along with a shortlink to the review. Please post the shortlink on at least one social media site or your website because this provides advertisement for both the book and my blog.

I reserve the right to stop reading any book that I receive in exchange for a review. In the event that I cannot finish any book that I receive in exchange for a review, I will contact the author/publisher and let them know. 


Interview policy:

If you would like me to conduct an interview with an author, please fill out the form on the “contact” page. A copy of the interview will be given to the author or publisher, and use of this interview on other sites will be allowed if a link back to my blog is included. (If a giveaway is held in conjunction with an interview, there will be an option to have a banner made out of one of the author’s book covers.)

Now that I’ve given you all of the boring but necessary information, I want to thank you so very much for considering me for a book review! I love to read, and whether you’re an independent author or a large publishing house, I appreciate the offer! 😀

Sharing is caring!

  1. I’m hoping to interest you in reviewing a new science fiction thriller from Barbarian Books, published April 2015 (contains horror and adult situations.)

    After terrorists killed his wife, scientists used nanotechnology to turn Neil into the perfect weapon. As a man he was unpleasant, dangerous and of little use. As wetwear, he is unpleasant, very dangerous and extremely useful. He kills without mercy, then erases the evidence by destroying his temporary body. The aftermath is someone else’s problem.

    The scientists that created this weapon knew they had made a monster. They did not know that Neil was monstrous before they started. What do they tell their superiors when Neil’s atrocities escalate? With every mission a success, will the bureaucrats even care?

    But Neil is worse than homicidal and psychopathic, he’s untidy. When he leaves his severed head in Iran, he leaves a pathologist a puzzle to solve. If she succeeds, it will destroy England’s only chance to survive in a terrorists’ transformed world. The humanity of every member of this top secret team will be stretched to the limit when they are ordered to send this powerful psychotic assassin on a rescue mission.

    “Walk in the flesh” by Peter Bailey. 76,000 words,

    Available from Amazon UK (or Amazon.Com ) but of course review copies are available in ePub, mobi and PDF

    In case any of that has wetted your appetite, here is a short extract from the book

    Chapter One – Iran
    The Mutaween’s neck broke with a wet crack. Neil sat up, still straddling the man’s body and listened carefully. The sound of pursuit was distant and unfocused. He thought he might have another five minutes before he had to run again.
    Quickly, he checked the body for a weapon. A gun, or even a knife, could change everything, but the weapon of choice for the Iranian religious police to chastise the blasphemous seemed to be a simple wooden stick. He didn’t think this would be much use against a rotating bolt submachine gun, firing 850 rounds per minute.
    The dead man’s eyes stared reproachfully in the moonlight. Neil closed them with a wipe of his hand. As far as he was concerned, it was a self-inflicted injury. If the local had not opened his mouth to scream, then Neil would not have had to twist his head through 180 degrees.
    The sound of pursuit was closer now. Perhaps they were herding him to a dead end where they could collect him easily.
    He should have realised that his insertion into Iran had been far too easy. His cover—a student returning to his homeland—had seemed perfect, but at some point he had been compromised.
    He had first seenfirst saw them three days ago, reflected in a shop window, and had casually dismissed the tag as just routine surveillance. Even when they came into the coffee shop, he had sat there like a good little citizen, with his papers ready for routine inspection by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard. By the time he realised that these were the elite Vevak internal security, and they had come for him, it was nearly too late.
    The smell of shit from the corpse was distracting. He discarded that sense.
    If he had been within range of a Wi-Fi point, there would have been no problem. Upload and dump, but they had started the sweep while he was away from its comforting presence. So he had run.
    Soon the gleaming glass and chrome façade of the twenty-first century core of Esfahan had givengave way to alleys that had not changed in the last 500 years. The maze of streets concealed him, but it also stopped him being able to salvage the mission intel.
    Three times he had tried to double back to the center, and each time a thin line of grey Vevak uniforms had been there. It was almost as if they knew where he would head.
    He was achingly tired now that the adrenaline rush had gone. This cover was calling for raw calories to replace the energy he had burnt so easily. He turned off the receptors that were signalling need. Now he could run fast and hard, but there would be no warning when all reserves were exhausted.
    His head throbbed; the tumour mass there was no longer being held back by the drugs, and had started to grow again. He wondered what the searchers in his room would think when they found the huge array of prescription medicines in his bathroom. Most of them looked like cancer drugs, designed to stop an abnormal growth. Which was nearly what they were. They would never suspect anything else.
