Review Policy/Contact

revpolcon

If you are a publicist, publisher or I am already on your mailing lists then PLEASE get in touch about review books, features and/or blog tours!

I read Fantasy, Post-apocalyptic, Zombie, SFF, Horror, Crime, Thriller, Mystery, Graphic novels and anything else that catches my eye or interests me but I don’t read Y-A, Erotica or Romance!

Indie authors please note that I am closed to review requests.

I write honest reviews on how much I enjoyed the book and stay away from spoilers. Reviewing instead with the aim of showing whether or not I think the book is, in fact, worth your time and effort as a reader and saying what I liked and disliked without spoiling the actual story.

All my old reviews are rated with a standard 5 star system (1 star through to 5 stars) with 1 being the lowest (the book was unreadable), 3 middling (the book was just an OK read) and 5 the highest rating (a cracking good read/highly recommended).

As of May 2017, my new reviews will be rated under a new system. I changed how I rate from the standard 5-star rating to a simplified version. I felt that too many people pay attention to the rating rather than the actual review content and the reasons for the rating. My new system will feature a choice of three reviews as detailed below:

  • Hell No Book Review (1 star to 2 star review).
  • It’s OK Book Review (3 – 3.5 star review).
  • Hell Yeah Book Review (4 star to 5 star review).

I read for the love of it and as a hobby. I will review the books I’ve read after I’ve read them (obviously I can’t review them while I’m still reading). I try to read each day but sometimes life and other things get in the way and I can’t. I much prefer proper books than e-books.

I will consider all requests but I reserve the right to decline any request.

Please note, I am a UK based blogger.

If I agree to have you on my blog for a book excerpt, guest post, etc then, please along with the specified content make sure that you send the required information for the post too. Contrary to what some of you believe it isn’t my job to gather the information (you are the author, promote yourself and your work) for you and while I’m happy to get the odd bit (after all, we all forget things at times) I won’t get it all if you make no effort to include any! 

Information required for posts is:

  • Book cover.
  • Book blurb.
  • Purchase links.
  • Author biography.
  • Author picture.
  • Author social media links.

For quotes any authors and/or publishers who wish to use part of a review for a quote/quote are free to quote from my reviews but please include my blog name too, thank you. 


Feedback, advice about the blog, general book chat, recommendations, guest post, book spotlight, book excerpt and cover reveals by both publishers and authors are all welcome. As well as blog tours for books.

I’m also more than happy to consider hosting guest posts from any other bloggers out there. 🙂
