Hi! I do take review requests! I’d be happy to accept an eARC, digital copy (ebook or kindle version), or audiobook of your book in exchange for a review. I can usually fit 5-10 or so books in a month, depending on the month. I usually read books that I’m given in a first-come-first serve basis, but this sometimes varies. I try my best to prioritize them that way, but sometimes things get shuffled around based on my own personal preferences/long-awaited book releases/looming library return dates/phases of the moon.
So, if it takes me a few months to get to your book, sorry. If I’ve communicated to you that I’ll read/review it though, I promise I will get to it. I’ve never not at least attempted to read a book I was given. That’s not my jam. Sometimes it takes 3 days, sometimes 3 months, sometimes longer. But I’ll get there. 😀
As for audiobooks, I can listen to them while I work, so if your book is in audio and you’d prefer I get to it sooner, that’s usually the way to go, because my audio review queue is usually much smaller and I can prioritize it a little better.
I prefer fantasy (and its many subgenres) and science fiction (and its also many subgenres), but depending on the story offered, I can sometimes be convinced to deviate. I read everything from romance, to horror, to mysteries and more… though if any of these things also include a bit of fantasy, that makes them even better. I do review anthologies and short stories as well. No non-fiction though, please.
While it doesn’t happen overly often, if I don’t like your book, and decide not to finish it, I’ll usually email you and tell you that and then just remove it from my shelves. I don’t usually review books that I don’t finish, unless it’s expected of me, and we can’t all love every book. I have been known to dislike books. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it sure does. It uh… yeah, it sure does.
I cross post my reviews to goodreads, amazon and/or audible. I’m even a top contributor for fantasy books on amazon. Wowza, right?
Finally, you may request a review and I might just say no, even if my review requests are open. There are lots of reasons this might happen. You might have been rude to a friend of mine. You might have a vastly different view of the world than I do and are rather vocal about it on twitter. I might just not like the sound of your book. There are a lot of reasons…. so I reserve the right to decline requests at my own discretion. 😀
Anyway, if you’re interested, I can be reached via my little form here. I’m good about answering most emails within a day or so (but if review requests for the format you are requesting are closed, which is very obvious from the big red or green letters at the top of this page, I might ignore you, because at that point, you ignored me first ^_^):
