Review Policy

To Authors & Publishers:  I would love to read and review your novel but please bear in mind that I only assess a considerable number of genres to read.  At the moment, I can only accept novels that fall under the following categories:

  • Thrillers, Mystery, and Suspense
  • Crime Fiction / Nordic Noir
  • Horror
  • Historical Fiction 
  • Literary Fiction / General Fiction 
  • General Fantasy / SciFi Novels

Should the novel you wish for me to review falls under any of the categories listed above, kindly fill out the contact form, and I will do my best to respond to your query as soon as possible.  Any other genre not listed above, in particular, romance novels and Erotica, I’m afraid I may have to decline such a request.

I am most willing to read ARCs and finished copies in the following format:

  • Physical book copies
  • Ebook (.epub / .mobi)

Do note however that sending me a review copy does not automatically merit a review.  I do not receive any form of compensation for book review requests. All opinions expressed in my reviews are my own and do not reflect nor in any way influenced by authors and publishers, and biases in personal and professional settings.

I post my full reviews on my website under Book Reviews as well as on Goodreads and do post excerpts of such reviews on my Instagram account.
