Review Policy and other services

Book reviews

Free, of course!

Simply send me a copy of your book/story (any format is fine, although a MOBI copy via email to is preferable if possible).

I accept any style/genre/length.

My current turnaround is 8-10 weeks, as I have a waiting list and other commitments.  However if you have a specific deadline in mind, I do try to be accommodating wherever possible.

Once read I will post my review to my blog and that will automatically upload it to my Facebook and Twitter pages.  I am happy to tag author/publisher on request and include any relevant tags you like (eg book title, character name, genre type).  I will also copy the main text of the review to Amazon UK and US, and Goodreads, with a rating for those sites.

I have seen some discussion recently around the posting, or not, of negative reviews.  I will always post an honest review and rating for a book, as I have a responsibility to other readers to do so.  If I find that a book is likely to be a very low rating (2 stars or less), I will contact the author directly to feed back my concerns before posting any review to my blog or other sites.


Proofreading and copy/content editing

Jobs to be negotiated on an individual basis dependant on the length of manuscript and level of work required.

Please contact me for further details!
