- First, let me say, that if you have written a book, you have really done something. I honor your effort and persistence. Reviewing a book is my way of honoring quality writing that moves me.
- I review books by independent and traditionally published authors pre or post publication on this blog at no charge and with no obligation to the author.
- I read non-fiction, memoir, women’s fiction, spirituality, poetry, self-help, and literary or general fiction with an empowered or courageous female protagonist. Think To Kill a Mockingbird, The Secret Life of Bees, and Care of the Soul (non-fiction). I will consider non-violent psychological thrillers and paranormal. I do not read vampire stories, crime drama, romance, erotica or any other writing that denigrates women or promotes violence against them. I like books that make me think, that make me feel good or cry for happy. I enjoy strong characterization and vivid detail. I love books that are not in a hurry. (Those are rare.) I love to be taken away, back in time or to foreign lands, especially those that exist outside of physical reality. I read only a few books a year, so I am very particular about what I choose to read.
- Send me a link to your book with a “look inside” if it’s published or, if not, send me a short synopsis via email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a review. If your book interests me, I’ll let you know within a few days, requesting the entire manuscript. Feel free to prompt me once after a week or so. We all get too busy or check out sometimes.
- Once I have requested your book and if you have an electronic version of your book, you can gift a copy to me via Amazon. If you have only hard copies of your book, you can send me a copy via snail mail. I will provide an address when I contact you.
- Once I have read your book, I will not review it if I cannot give it a four or five star rating and I will notify you if this is true, otherwise, I will send you a link to your review when I have posted it.
