I will read your book in exchange for a review.
If you are an author seeking legitimate and unbiased reviews for your books, I am happy to help. I am a Beta Reader or Advanced Review Crew Reader for several authors and you can see samples of past reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.
My favorite genres are Sci-fi/Fantasy (especially Time Travel and/or Dystopian stories) and Romance (with a soft spot for historical romance). That being said, I’ll read almost anything that sounds good.
I always write honest reviews. What that means is that if a book doesn’t work for me, I will say so. I will always be polite and never “bash” an author or a book but I always give my truthful opinion. I do always try to focus on the positive but please do not ask me to review your book if you are only looking for positive reviews because I cannot guarantee that.
I reserve the right to not finish and/or not review a book that I accept for review. I do try to review every single book I receive from authors; however, if I am not enjoying a book after 50-100 pages (depending upon the total length of the book) I will usually abandon said book, which means it will not get reviewed (this has only happened once so far).
If you have a particular time frame wherein you’d like the review to be published, please say so in your original email request. I oftentimes finish reading/reviewing within 2 weeks of receipt but sometimes life gets in the way or I may be wanting to finish other books in progress before starting yours. I will review at my own pace, giving priority to Beta reads, unless otherwise requested.
Generally, I am interested in reviewing books within the following genres:
- Sci-fi/Fantasy (I prefer time travel, dystopian and some paranormal, no sparkly vampires please)
- Techno Thrillers
- Prepper/ Survivalist
- Historical Romance (bonus points if there is time travel)
- Contemporary Romance
- Romantic Comedy
- Alternative History
Generally, I am NOT interested in reviewing books within the following genres (there are exceptions to this so I am happy to read your book's description and let you know if it's interesting to me):
- Christian fiction
- Children’s books (books marketed to kids younger than teens)
- Marketing/ Advertising
- Picture books
- Political rants
I prefer to review books in Ebook (Kindle) format. I will sometimes accept print copies but it will take me longer to complete those. I typically publish my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. If you’d like me to publish the review elsewhere I’m happy to accommodate.

I only reply to pitches I choose to accept.
