Book Reviewing Policy

We, writers, all know the value of a great review. But not every reviewer is able to read your novel. There are just so many books out there!

That is why I have made it my mission to read and review selfpublished authors. In my spare time, I read a lot of different genres, but for reviewing I only choose books with fantastical elements, suitable for Young Adult, New Adult or Adults. I just love to be swallowed up by stories filled with romance, drama, adventure, or mystical and paranormal events! Bring it on!

So, if you are a Fantasy writer and you’re searching for an honest, in depth review on your book, then please check the following boxes if you want me to read and review your story.

You:

  • are an Indie Author and have independently selfpublished your book (preferably within the last five years – because I want to read your best work!),
  • hired a professional editor to go over the text and make it as clean as possible, and
  • had beta-readers commenting on your story to improve your storyline without any major plotholes.

If you’ve answered YES to all of these points, then go ahead and send me an email with a synopsis of your story, including number of pages, your targeted audience and genre. Please also include the link to Amazon, where your (e-)book’s for sale, because unlike most book reviewers out there, I actually buy the book(s) I review. That’s part of how I want to support my fellow Indie Authors out there.

If your story is the first part of a series, I’d be happy to read it, but do make sure to mention this in the email and provide the number of books you plan on releasing in this series (I’d like to prepare myself for the possibility I might want to read the whole series once I’m done!). Please note that at the moment I do not review a second, third, fourth (etc) book of a series, if I haven’t yet read the first book. I want to do your series justice and I don’t think I can do that if I haven’t read the first book(s).

To avoid receiving mails with a ‘one size fits all’ feel (and believe me, I still get a ton of those and I will not reply to them #sorrynotsorry), please tell me a bit about yourself, and about your writing process, too. For instance, I’d love to know how long you’ve been writing, what made you start writing and what your message is that you’re trying to convey with the book you want me to review. Also, tell me who your favorite character is and why, and how you’ve gotten the idea for this story. If there’s anything you might feel a bit insecure about, or you want me to focus on, feel free to mention that as well. This will help me get a bit of an idea of you as a writer and in what way you are connected to your story and its characters.

Make sure to add  “Review my book” in the title. I’ll get back to you within a week’s time to let you know if I’m willing and able to read and review your book.

Happy to hear from you!

PS: if you feel I’m not the reviewer for you, please check out The Indie View for loads of other Indie reviewers. One of them is bound to be the match for you!

Update 27th of June 2020: Unfortunately, I won’t be able to review any more books for 2020, as I’ve already taken on a bunch of books to review and I want to give each book the attention it deserves. As soon as I have availability, I’ll erase this update so feel free to (re)connect then!
