Review Policy

I'm making changes to this page all the time. Please check my reading interests below before sending me a request for review or book in the mail. *****************************************

Updated May 1, 2013. 

For the time being, I'm unable to accept eBooks for review.   I have a few that are outstanding and  I will be honoring those commitments, but I won't be accepting any new ones.   If you have any questions, feel free to email me (see the contact page).  Of course, I reserve my right to change my mind and make exceptions.  ;)

The links to my reviews are automatically posted to Twitter and Facebook. If time permits, I also tweet the link mentioning the author's and publisher's Twitter IDs.

Once the reviews are posted, I email the publisher the link letting them know that the review is up and ready for them to read. At that time, I also let them know that I've posted the link on Twitter and have added the review to

Genres I'm interested in reading:
General Fiction
Historical Fiction (see exceptions below)
Cozy Mysteries

I'd also love to read and review some cookbooks. I will even make a few recipes from the book if requested or as time permits.

I also have a wide variety of other interests and read lots of different types of non-fiction.

Genres I'm not interesting in reading (at this time):
Historical Fiction that focuses on WWI, WWII or any war. Homefront stories are ok, but I'm not interested in reading about the missions or military personal.
Young Adult/Vampire Books
Science Fiction
Children's Books
American politics

At the present time, I don't have time to answer all of the pitches I get for review books.  If you don't hear from me within a week of your email, it's probably because I'm not interested in the book. 

I'm easily amused and pretty generous in my reviews. If I finish reading a book, I'm going to find something nice to say about it.

If you are a publisher, publicist or author and would like me to review a book, please contact me using the email link on my profile.

I don't sell the ARCs or review copies I get from authors/publishers (this includes the copy of "Red Snow" by Michael Slade.) I do, however, lend out these books occasionally.
