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:

  • Literary Fiction

I am also open to the following genres but understand that I am pickier with these:

  • Children/Middle Grade
  • Romance
  • Erotica

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 format (mobi for Kindle OR paperback/hardcopy)

Email Subject: Book Review Request

Email to : prettypeonybookreviews@gmail.com

I will reply to your email within 24 hours 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. It’s not that I don’t have any books to read. I have a pretty long list of TBRs, but will put them aside to give your book a chance. All reviews are my honest opinion. If there are issues with your book such as grammatical errors, no clear storyline, difficult to read, etc., I will not post a review on it. I will instead, contact you and let you know the reason why your book was not read or reviewed.

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 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 self-published stories. I have a master’s degree in creative writing with an emphasis in creative nonfiction (memoir) 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 editor for three years until I decided that I preferred to write and had to let that go.
