Reviewing Policy

In return for a complimentary published book or advance reading copy, I will submit an honest review, adhering to the accepted five star criteria.

My waiting list is limited to ten books at a time and I try to review a book within a twelve week window.

If I do not think the book is worth three stars, I will offer constructive feedback to the author/publisher/agent as appropriate and not publish unless requested to do so.

  • Erotica
  • Horror
