3. Applications for book reviews and book tours – 2017

NOW OPEN FOR BOOK REVIEWS

Please read the instructions below. Do not send requests via other forms on this blog. Thank you.


REVIEWING YOUR BOOK – MY BLOG MY RULES:

As many of you will be aware I review books. I am not paid to do this. I do it because I enjoy reading and read a wide range of styles and materials. I read and review about 4-6 books per month depending on the amount of time I have available.

I USUALLY DON”T REVIEW:

  • Instructional/motivational books (if I have done one you before apply to me using the email from out last contact)
  • Christian books (or any other type of religious book)
  • Biographies and Autobiographies (will sometimes make exceptions for travelogues and humourous books or if I have reviewed for you before)
  • Romance (ok if ‘romance’ is a subplot)
  • Adult/Pornographic texts
  • Audio books
  • Academic texts
  • Manifestos

If you are a publisher or representing an author I will expect to be provided with either a PDF or Kindle version of the book. If you are the author (i.e. self-published or self-marketing) I am prepared to buy the book (after all a sale is a sale and it all adds up when you’re starting out).

Book reviews will appear here: 2017 Book Reviews. I suggest that you have a look at the page to get some idea of what I review and how I structure my reviews. I will review your piece, place a review on this blog (and Facebook), on GoodReads, LibraryThing and Amazon. I will also send you a copy of the review to post wherever you need.

PLEASE NOTE: I am in Australia – If you are asking me to review a non-fiction book check that it is globally relevant/applicable. Also check that your book is available world-world?


BOOK TOURS:

This is a case of first come first served. I will only set up a book tour if I have reviewed your book first. Please complete the form below (if the form is missing it means that I am not taking on new book reviews or tours at the present time).


APPLICATION FORM FOR A BOOK REVIEW/BOOK TOUR:

Would you like me to review your book? You will need to send me a brief blurb/description so that I can determine if I will review it. If you have not heard from me within four (4) weeks then I am not going to review your book. Still keen? If so please send you details to me me via the form below:

 


WHAT DO I DO IF THERE IS NO APPLICATION FORM?

If the form is absent or if there is a note saying that I am currently not accepting submissions, it means that I AM NOT ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS!

DO NOT post requests for reviews through “comments” or through forms on other pages in the blog. If I have completed reviews for you before I may be prepared to make an exception. Send me an email using the address I sent the review from.
