Book Reviews

Books are my life. Reading and helping authors brings me joy. If you want a review of your manuscript, please see my Review Policy below and if you feel we might be a good fit, contact me for a Zoom call or e-mail exchange about how we can collaborate.

Review Policy

Genres I Accept

I read historical fiction, historical romance, young adult, and some science fiction/fantasy. Travel books speak to me, as well.

I give preference to own voices selections. Books written by BIPOC and authors with perspectives outside the US are also well-received. LGBTQA+ titles are always welcome.

Genres I Don’t Accept

I do not read erotica, horror, or anything related to Christianity or Pro-GOP.

As a white, liberal feminist, I choose to learn about religions and cultures outside my experience.

Review Publishing Policy

I may or may not add your book to my editorial calendar based on whether I enjoyed the book or if it is something that my readers would enjoy. Mini-reviews as part of a list are also an option.

I will not review a book I didn’t enjoy. However, if there is a glaring event that I can’t abide by, I will mention it. For example, authors often portray mental illness as a means to describe why a character acts villainous. This portrayal is never okay, and I will mention it on one or several platforms and to my bookish friends.

Formats I Accept

I review hard copies, ePub, and audiobooks exclusively. If you don’t offer these formats, I won’t be able to give you a review.

I live in the US. If mailing a hard copy is too cost-prohibitive, Kindle copies are welcome.

Self-Published Author Policy

I gladly accept books from self-published authors on one condition. The manuscript needs to have gone through a professional editing process.

I’ve read too many self-published novels that needed extensive editing. Unfortunately, this deteriorates the reading experience, and I can’t give a favorable review.

Publishing Schedule

I try to publish one full review per week. Generally, I am booked out several weeks or months in advance. Please keep this in mind when requesting a review.
