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 (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.
If necessary, I accept books in Word documents, PDF files, Google docs, and even Notepad files. Yes, I once read an entire novel in Notepad. It was a good one, too.
Use the contact form below to tell me about your book. If I'd like to read it, we'll talk about how you can get me a review copy. 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.
