To request a review of a novel please contact me at easternsunset @ Hotmail.com. I will only accept a review from an author, publisher or publicist, I will not review your friends/uncles/cousins novel, they must contact me directly to request a review. In your email please include a cover image, synopsis, date review needed, and links to amazon, barnes & noble and goodreads when available. Please be patient as I have limited time to respond to emails but I will respond whether I decide to accept the review or not (unless the email I receive is exceptionally rude or illegible).
I reserve the right to refuse any novel submitted. If I am unable to finish the book, I will not post a review on my blog and contact you directly explaining why I couldn't finish it. I will make a good attempt to read and review you book within the year that it is sent to me; however, I have very limited time between working full time and raising Munchkin. If you need the book reviewed by a specific date please inform me of that in your initial email.
When I post the review on my blog I will include the cover image, synopsis (either from your email or goodreads), my review, my rating (see below), links to the author's blog/goodreads page/website when provided and links to Amazon & Barnes and Noble for readers to purchase their own copies. My review will be posted on Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble along with here on the blog. When I have read and reviewed your novel I will contact you via email with the expected date for the blog post.
I can accept ebooks in Mobi and PDF formats. I will also accept books in print (please request the address in your initial email). I am also open to accepting a book or two in audio to see how that goes as well.
My blog features a wide variety of genres and while I am willing to read nearly anything once, I don't feel that reviewing a book for you outside my genre can give it the proper rating if I am not familiar with the genre.
~Graphic Novels (Print Format Only)
~Fantasy/High & Epic Fantasy
~Erotica (M/M, M/F, M/M/F, M/F/F all accepted)
Genres I MAY Consider:
Genres Not Accepted:
The following Genres will not be accepted under any circumstances
~Sci/Fi (any mention of math or science - light time travel will be considered)
~Non Fiction (unless it is a memoir)
~Current Events/ Political
~Extreme Fetish Erotica
So I have noticed many sites and blogs have their own unique rating system, some have stars, hearts, I even saw one that had cups of coffee (I will add the link when I find that blog again). So I got to thinking how do I want to rate the books I am reviewing, what am I passionate about in addition to books. The answer was right in front of me, and I mean right in front of me . . . .
One with total interest in what I was doing and the other, well as much interest as she ever gives anything other than her food.
1 Paw Print = Yuck! Put it down Mom, lets do something fun!
2 Paw Prints = Eh! Its ok, but ooh look Bacon
3 Paw Prints = Oh, This is good. Outside fun can wait
4 Paw Prints = NO! Don't Stop, what do you mean eat & sleep?
And a Stump Wag = what would normally be considered a 1/2 star
