Book Review Submissions

If you’re interested in having your book(s) reviewed, you’ve come to the right place.

The genres I am MOST interested in are:

  • Sci-fi
  • Fantasy

To submit a request, email me with the following information:

  1. Author’s name
  2. Title of Book
  3. Genre
  4. Blurb
  5. Date book was published
  6. Book formats I will accept:
    • Hardcover or paperback–please do not send your author copy; Arcs are okay
    • Ebook via Amazon: (eBook gift (single copy): You can gift a single eBook. When you gift an eBook, the recipient receives a redemption code and can choose to accept your eBook gift by redeeming the code.
    • PDF or mobi attachment*

*For PDF and mobi as an email attachment, I will charge a small fee (for requests starting May 2021). The reason is, it takes me more time to work with PDF and mobi files than physical books or an ebook directly through Amazon. If you’re an avid reader like myself, you’ll understand that anything that gets in the way of a smooth read is pretty…annoying. Also, Kindle will no longer be using mobi files this year. They’ve gone to PDF so future requests will not include mobi because they won’t exist anymore.

Email Subject: Book Review Request

Email to : prettypeonybookreviews@gmail.com

I will reply to your email within 24 hours or up to three days. If you do not hear from me with the given time, please resubmit. Be informed that reviews can take from a few days up to two months depending on length of story and my schedule.

Book reviews will be posted on this blog, Amazon, and Goodreads. I may also share your book cover on my Instagram.

Disclaimer: I do not get monetary compensation to review. I am doing this as a courtesy.

If you are interested in a beta read, contact me at the email above with subject: Beta Read Request.

Include the following:

  1. Author’s name
  2. Title of Book
  3. Genre
  4. Blurb
  5. Total word count

Once approved, I will request a sample of your manuscript. This will be a 1,000 word piece or a chapter around the same amount of words. It is for me to get a feel for your writing style. If I determine the style is something I would read, then we’ll move forward. The sample and manuscript must be in Microsoft Word and double spaced.

Note that for beta reading there is a $15 fee after the first 5,000 words (so, a short story or flash fiction would be free). I will do a thorough read-through with feedback on plot, character development, setting, theme, conflict, and anything else you would like feedback on.

Credentials: I love reading and I want your book to be a success! I am also a writer with two published stories. I have a master’s degree in creative writing with an emphasis in creative nonfiction and literary fiction. My strong area is sci-fi and fantasy, but I enjoy other genres just as much. I’ve been a beta reader for over five years now and have also been a freelance copy editor (with some proofreading experience) for three years until I decided that I preferred to write and had to let that go.
