I will accept both paper and electronic galleys and ARCs from publishers and agents. Reviews are posted on numerous sites such as Amazon, Shelfari, Goodreads, etc, and are linked with Google search. I review a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction, but the following will not be accepted: graphic crime, paranormal, and erotica.
If you are hoping to independently publish-and have not previously been published by an established house-I will only consider reviewing your work if you are an Alaskan author, your book is set in Alaska, or it would be of interest to those living in The Last Frontier. ALASKAN AUTHORS: It would be my pleasure to help spread the word about quality writers in our state!
I do not receive compensation of any kind for the reviews which I post. Unless otherwise noted, all pre-publication books come to me in e-galley format and disappear off my Nook 55 days after I download them. Other books are purchased by me, a family member, a friend, or are library copies. All opinions are strictly my own, honestly given to the very best of my abilities.
Every book which I commit to read for a publisher will have a review posted. If I do not like a book (or worse), publishers are not offered the choice of the review being withheld. That said, I have a pretty good knack for picking books that I will find worth my while, and even if I do not like the book I try to annotate which audience I think would enjoy it. One thing that is an undeniable truism among readers is that one person's five star book could very well be another person's one star-and vice-versa.
