Review Policy

I am currently accepting limited review requests (see genres accepted below) and blog tour requests.

If you send me a request and do not hear back within 7 days it's because you have either ignored my list of preferred genres or because I don't think your book would be a good fit for me.

Review Request FAQ’s

Do you accept indie titles?
If they are in a genre I read, yes.
Do you accept physical ARC's?
Yes, especially from within the UK.

Yes, mostly through NetGalley or Edelweiss but I will also accept PDF's and .mobi files from authors/publishers.

 Giveaways Policy

  • To enter my giveaways you must be at least 16 years of age unless otherwise stated. If you are under 18, you must have parental permission to give out personal details such as full name or address.
  • I am not responsible for any items lost in the post. If the giveaway prize is coming from myself, I will ship it to you within a reasonable time period. If it is coming from another source ie. Book Depository, once I have ordered the book the timescale and delivery is down to them. 
  • I only use email addresses to contact the winner. I don't keep them after the contest is over and the winner has received their prize. Winners have 72 hours to respond, if I don't get any response, I will pick another winner who also then has 72 hours to respond.
  • Most of my giveaways will be International and I will always make this clear. Occasionally there may be a giveaway that is only open to the UK and Europe.


  1. Hi Fi

    Great to have a UK-based reviewer.

    Would love for you to check out my web-site. www.jeffreycollyer.com. A couple of short stories/flash fiction there, plus excerpts from my new fantasy novel. :-)

  2. Would love to send you a book for review

  3. Please check out my blog that has book reviews and interviews. In fact, it would be fun to interview a book reviewer from England if you are up for it.
