Review Policy


As a self-published author, I’ve found it difficult to find book reviewers who will take a chance on self-published and indie authors. I did find a few who would, but often times the reviewers were swamped with books sent to them by traditionally published authors (or small publishing houses), publishers themselves, or even their own TBR list that they didn’t prefer to get those requests.

So I’d like to extend a hand to all those self-published authors. We work hard for what we do and deserve to get credit for it! So I’d love to read your work. If you have a book you want to be reviewed, I’d be more than happy to read it and give you an honest review, as well as some publicity! I’ll post the review on Amazon, Goodreads, and a short snapshot on Instagram and Twitter. If there is any other location, please specify and I’d be more than happy to accommodate!

Only accepting LGBT+, Romance, and Contemporary YA.

I prefer physical copies, but will accept PDF’s or .mobi files. Send email to, if you’re interested!

Accepting book requests for February and March 2018.
