Book Review Submission Guide
A while back, I decided that I would start reviewing every book I read, as my way of saying 'thank you' to authors everywhere. If you're an author and would like me to review your book, read on! I post all my reviews here at A License to Quill and at Goodreads if the book is listed.
I post reviews at Amazon if I have purchased the book there, or if I've been given an Advance Review Copy (ARC) with the blessing of both the author and publisher. Amazon authors can also send me a promotional gift code link if they wish. Amazon has rules I've agreed to abide by, and I have no desire to game the system.
The genres I enjoy are steampunk (since that's also my writing genre), mysteries (I grew up with Nancy Drew), weird humor, cozy foodie mysteries, historical fiction, *good* time travel, and paranormal romps. Beyond fiction, I adore browsing cookbooks, love a good biography, and am always a sucker for a local history book. For example, Sons of the Profits by Bill Speidel is a favorite book about Victorian era Seattle, and Lauren Bacall's By Myself turned me into a true admirer of the woman. And, I like the occasional kid's book. We're all kids at heart, right?
I accept books in Word documents, PDF files, Google docs, ePub format, and even Notepad files. Yes, I once read an entire novel in Notepad. It was a good one, too.
I also review books for StoryOrigin and NetGalley , so if you use either of those companies to promote your book, feel free to nudge me in that direction. For all other inquiries, send me an email. Please include your book information and expected release date (if applicable), along with any other information that wold help me make a decision about reading your book.
