Please read this before contacting me with a request!
I also welcome guest posts, author interviews, cover reveals, book cover blurbs, beta reading, and more. I am not currently charging for any of these. I am happy to do speaking engagements (schools, book clubs, homeschools, mental health advocacy, etc).
If you are a younger or debut author looking for help with any step of the writing, editing, or marketing process, please reach out! I'd love to help.
I mostly read YA (young adult), and especially love the following:
Mental health themes
Characters who actively drive the plot/conclusion
Contemporary, with or without romance
LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, OWNVoices writers and characters
Tension or characters that keep me turning the page
Young authors (especially 25 and under!)
I will consider all YA, some MG, and some adult, especially if it includes the aforementioned characteristics. I am also open to:
Non-fiction related to self-help, psychology, health and wellness, business, marketing, baking, sports, mental health, or dogs.
Psychological thrillers or mysteries.
I am a TheIndieView reviewer, meaning I accept both traditionally and independently published books. (Find more reviewers who accept indie works on their website).
Not for me, ever:
Promoting of diets, fatphobia, xenophobia, sexism, transphobia, multilevel marketing schemes, religious conversion, or anything related.
Glorifying or stereotyped portrayal of mental illness.
Adult science fiction or fantasy or erotica.
Children's books for ages below MG.
Books from the point of view of an abuser (unfortunately, I do have to explicitly say this one...)
If you're unsure if I am a good fit for your book, feel free to reach out to ask.
**I reserve the right to decline any book, or DNF/not finish any book, at any time, for any reason.**
I rate books out of 5 stars, usually using whole numbers. Occasionally I will use half numbers and will round on sites that require full numbers. I post reviews to my blog (which are sent to my subscribers), Amazon, and Goodreads (see my profile here). I am open to posting other places as well, if you let me know. Ratings are usually 2+ paragraphs.
If I DNF or denote the book as 1-2 stars, I will reach out to you to see if you'd like me to go forward with posting the review or not.
What to send
When pitching a book for me to review, please send a link to Amazon or Goodreads, the blurb, the genre, and why you reached out. (Tip: I'm much more likely to review your book if you subscribe to my blog, plus you'll get a notification that I posted the review).
I prefer physical copies or PDFs, if possible.
I am currently *OPEN* to review requests.
