2. Applications for book reviews and book tours

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.

I USUALLY DON”T REVIEW:

  • Instructional/motivational books (if I have done one you before apply to me using the email from our 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:  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).

Previous Book Tours available as a PDF download:


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.
