Review & Rating System

All reviews are given with respect, honesty, and are spoiler free. I review both indie and traditionally published authors. My reviews will be written in a constructive manner focusing on the work itself and will not attack or focus on the author. I will post a written review here on my blog. I will also post short reviews to Goodreads, BookBub, and Amazon.

Please provide a synopsis of your book and page number. I will review your submission and contact you if/when I add your book to my TBR, then again when I begin reading it. At that time I may also ask for additional information, such as your website and social media links, links where your book can be purchased, and an image to use in my review.

I will not talk up a book to keep an author or publisher happy. My opinions are my own.

I review fiction novels in the following genres:

  • Romance – Paranormal, Supernatural, Military, Thriller/Suspense, Time Travel, Historical, Contemporary, Dark (All heat levels)
  • Fantasy – Urban & Dark
  • Mythology & Magic Realism
  • Humorous Fiction
  • Women’s Fiction, Paranormal Women’s Fiction, Chick Lit
  • Thrillers – Supernatural, Medical, Military/Espionage & Psychological
  • Mystery – Crime, Cozy, Police Procedural & Paranormal
  • Some Science Fiction
