What Books Will We Review?

I love to hear from authors and I always promise a completely honest review on GR, Facebook, my blog and on Amazon..

  • We DO read contemporary romance, YA, adult romance, paranormal, and thriller novels.
  • We accept mobi, epup, pdf and LOVE to accept print though it might take me a little longer to read. (I’m blind and have to wear reading glasses lol)
  • We DO NOT accept audio books
  • We can forgive almost any wrong-doing as long as it is in the name of love.
  • We don’t mind having my heart ripped out as long as I feel satisfied at the end of the book (this does not have to mean a happily ever after)

We will rate and review your book according to what we feel my blog followers will enjoy and how we felt about the book, so please only request a review if it is the kind of genre my review team and I would enjoy. My top priority, when reviewing, is to be honest with my blog followers.




My reviews are typically written in a relaxed humorous manner as if I was telling someone what I just read. I am not a English major, just someone that has a love for books and wants to share my opinions.

I write honest reviews, and therefore I cannot guarantee a positive review. My reviews are my opinion. I try to make sure I explain why the book in question did not suit me personally. I avoid writing nasty/offensive commentary. If a review is, by chance, ever offensive I want to know.

For books I do not finish reading This is a VERY rare occurrence but if I do, I will state that I did not finish the book, why I did not finish and how far through the book I got.

If I receive a books specifically for a review from author/publisher and my review is not positive the party who gave the book has the right to ask for promotion spot instead or a review posting. Please let me know in the request. I will not sell any ARCs or Galleys, however I may swap or give to other bloggers or my review team.



Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover art
  • Book stats: Title, author, series status, Genre(s) as most often categorized as on Goodreads, publication month/year
  • My review: What I liked and didn’t, some self-written re-summarizing, may include quotes I liked, etc.
  • Rating: on a 5 star scale.
  • Author Bio

To receive an 4+ rating: They moved me emotionally or made me think deeply about a topic, They were beautiful stories or have great characters. Most of the time they were the books that I really want to own (or do own) and will reread over and over again because I love the characters and story.

Ratings are based on my personal enjoyment of the book and are not meant to be objective ratings for the most part.



Giveaways, Blog Tours, Promos, Interviews Etc.

I would be more than happy to host events such as a blog tour stop, author interviews, or contests, giveaways, etc. My only request to doing so is that I get a copy of the book the event is for before the event takes place. This is so that I can be prepared for making it fun, successful and interactive for everyone.

  1. Hi, there. My name is Anthony David Mitchell and my book is a crime thriller titled “Who You Work For.” Here is the blurb:

    Reclusive assassin Thomas Moore dreams of joining his love,Dearest, in his private world he calls “Detour.” Moore’s father, Partner, has left him for the past year which Moore believes is his toughest lesson on growing up to being a man. All seems in place when Moore is confronted by his boss who he has never met who offers him a deal to get three times his usual money to kill a small-town mayor. Moore has only killed men guilty of murder and while his boss tells him this man is guilty, he cannot be sure. He will have to choose between grabbing the life he wants and sparing the life of a good man. Suspenseful, darkly humorous with a deep look at a man who sees this world as a technological hell, Who You Work For will have you rooting for a man who could only be wrong in a world where all is lost.

    I can send the copy in MOBI, EPUB, PDF or in paperback version. Thank you for your time and happy reading.

  2. hello, my name is Gary Hope, my book is “Abbey” which I’ve attached. I hope you have time to read it. It already has several reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It was self-published this past April, 2016. Here is a short synopsis:

    “Abbey” is a story of love you didn’t think possible….a story you wish had happened to you. It’s a story of love that is so overwhelming that hearing the sound of her voice in your ear fills your senses with her completely. You inhale her, you taste her. Your life begins with her and without her, it must surely end. The pessimist in you is certain a love this fulfilling and unending is improbable at best, except in your dreams. But Abbey lives this dream for us. He enables us to imagine what love could be.
    thanks for taking the time and I truly hope you enjoy the book. Thanks, Gary
    also, I think it’s still free on Kindle, and it’s available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble

  3. Hi
    Hope you are doing well! Let me first introduce myself. I am an upcoming indie author specializing in the romance genre. I am keen on getting reviews for my books from people who love romance as I firmly believe that constructive feedback (positive or negative) shall help me get better at my craft.
    I have previously ghostwritten scores of short stories ranging from regency to contemporary billionaire romance but now I want to go the self publishing way.
    My stories are typically 8-12 thousand words in length and are intended to be short reads that you can enjoy during a break or while commuting or waiting for your turn at the hairdressers!
    The book that I’d like you to review is titled “His Innocent Sweetheart”. It is a short romance novella that explores the relationship between a small town girl and a popular Hollywood action hero. The novella is 10,423 words long and is a clean, contemporary romance story.
    I am willing to send a free copy of my book “His Innocent Sweetheart” (pdf/mobi /epub format) with the hope that you’ll enjoy reading it and will leave an honest review on Amazon, Goodreads and Smashwords. Thank you so much for taking out the time to read this mail.
    Kind Regards

Along the way they find hidden treasures, and epic secrets both wonderful, and terrible, but the biggest and most terrible secret of them all, nobody could have ever fathomed. The Earth is now heading towards certain destruction and only Alex and his father with the help of a very special friend have figured out how to save it. Unfortunately to know this secret carries with it a great and terrible price.

  5. Hello
    I am looking for book reviews for my thriller ‘Falling in Death and Love’. It’s about 103,000 words, roughly 300 pages long.
    If you’re interested I can provide a pdf or a mobi file

    This is the book on amazon

    and below is the official pitch. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you require any further information
    Many thanks & best
    Magnus Stanke

    Love hit when they met. Murder came later
    The year: 1977. No internet, no mobile phones; tablets cure headaches not boredom.
    The place: Mallorca, Spain. The Dictator is Dead, Long Live Tourism
    David falls hard for Aurora and vice versa, but the holiday is over. When she returns she isn’t alone, the deadly chase already underway.
    First the hitmen then the police.
    ‘Falling in Death and Love’ is a hard-boiled, heartfelt thriller, a breathless ride through times of change.
    Love, guilt, paternity, murder – probably not in that order.

  6. Hello,

    I’d love to be reviewed by your awesome blog!

    My paranormal romance/urban fantasy The Trickster’s Lover is an independently published contemporary romance with the Norse god of lies, Loki. The synopsis is below. Please let me know if this sounds like something you’d like to read and review! 🙂

    Surviving Graduate School ~ Falling in Love ~ Preventing Ragnarök

    Graduate student Caroline Capello has always been more comfortable with books than people. She’s just moved to the University of Chicago to become the world’s foremost authority on Norse mythology, making her the only member of her family to leave San Diego, and the family business.

    But she’s wondering if she’s just made the biggest mistake of her life.

    When the enigmatic and irresistibly sexy Norse god Loki appears in her studio apartment, Caroline is forced to question everything she’s learned.

    Do the gods exist? Are the legends about Ragnarök, the apocalyptic battle that destroys the gods and ends the Nine Realms, actually true?

    Or is she losing her mind?

    Thank you for your time!

  7. Hi there!

    I stumbled on your blog via The Indie View, and was hoping you’d be interested in reviewing my book, Avalon Dreams.

    ~They say what you don’t know can’t hurt you.. They’re never been more wrong.~

    “It was impossible they had met before – of that she was certain. Yet his hold on her was undisputable, an irrational pull to the utmost recesses of her soul.”

    Vivienne du Lac has everything she could wish for – a normal, peaceful life, a good job, cushy nest egg, and a semi-social nightlife. The only problem? She’s clueless to being the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake, Merlin’s apprentice.

    Sebastien Dubois is the bad boy you wouldn’t take home to mom and dad – quite the opposite. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling from the start – but there’s more to the tall, dark and handsome stranger. When a magical past tumbles into her orderly reality, he is Vivienne’s only hope at survival.

    Caught between darkness and light, a battle she has no intention to fight – let alone the knowledge to win – Vivienne quickly finds out not even closest allies can be trusted.

    Can she look within and become the enchantress Merlin meant her to be… Or will she lose it all over love, for Sebastien’s salvation? This is a battle between good and evil you don’t want to miss.

    Thanks for your time,

  8. Hi!,

    My first book Impossible to Love (The Starlite Heart #1) would love to get reviewed by your blog.

    Genre-Romantic Fantasy (High/ Medieval/Mythopoeia)

    Short Blurb-Prince Neal has many secrets to hide, the most shocking among them is his love for a starlite. Untouched by the royal secrets and unaware of the human’s love, Sophia grew up believing that nobody can love a starlite. While Sophia is busy protecting the humans from life-threatening seducers called nymphs, Neal is determined to make her fall in love with him. But he doesn’t know that destiny’s plans are always a step ahead of him.

    Long Blurb- There is an age old story – some call it a myth, some believe it to be history. Nevertheless, the fact remains that there exist three different species who look alike. First are the underwater dwellers – the nymphs. The myth says that they are cursed never to find love. They are all females and mate with humans, killing them after the act. Second are the starlites. They can fly, and their hearts are cold as the snow covered peaks they live in. They are cursed never to feel love or get loved by anyone. The third is the human race. Humans can feel love, get love, cherish it and hence are considered worthy to rule everyone. The guardians are a group of starlites whose job is to protect the humans from the nymphs and they have got a new member- Sophia Antofurota.
    Sophia gradually finds out that the royalty is hiding many secrets but never suspects that she can have any part to play in their schemes. Will she find out that the crown-prince is in love with her or will the world keep believing that starlites are impossible to love?

  9. Hello,

    Would you be interested in reviewing my contemporary fantasy DREAM WATERS? This is my debut novel & it is the 1st in a series. DREAM WORLD (Book 2 in the Dream Waters series) will be released on October 31st.
    I would be happy to provide a print copy of Book 1 for review. I’d also love to do a giveaway if you are interested.

    Summary of Dream Waters:
    All his life, Charlie Oliver has watched the people around him morph into creatures that no one else sees. Unlike the rest of the world, Charlie remembers the Waters that transport him to the Dream World each night. And he sees glimpses of people’s Dream forms in the waking world. Condemned to spend his waking hours in a psychiatric facility because of his Dream Sight, Charlie doesn’t expect anything to change. But everything starts changing the day Emma Talbot walks through the door in the middle of a group therapy session.

    Haunted by memories of the events that led to her admission, Emma plans to end her life the first chance she gets. But something about Charlie stops her. From the moment they shake hands, his friendship feels safe and familiar. As Emma begins to let down her guard, Charlie catches a glimpse of the fiery-eyed dragon that lurks behind her Dream form. Each night, as Emma dreams of the man who’s been banned from visiting, Charlie searches the Dream World for the monster that shadows her. But when Emma’s suppressed memories begin to surface, Charlie finds more monsters than he bargained for.

    Thank you for your time,

  10. Greetings Amy,

    I found your name on the list of The Book Reviewers Yellow Pagers. I would like to submit a review request per your guidelines.

    This is an ambitious series of adult fiction and romantic novels, meant to engage the more discerning taste in the fantastical. It relates the evolving relationship between a 500,000-year-old culture and humanity and serves as a setting for the passions and battles of the 6,000-year-old Protectress.

    This book is genre specific but ranges broad in storyline and characterization within both ancient Khemit and present-day. From the boardrooms of global finance and private jets to the sands and mountains of Northern Africa and the Sahara, the books explore the struggles of the ancient warrior Meretneith, The Protectress. Weaved in retrospect, she and her brother the god Ptah relate in stunning detail the evolution of wars. There are surprising undercurrent twists in erotic relationships and LGBTQ romance that makes for an enticing read.

    This series of works are unique but in my opinion enjoyable. I tried to keep close to my research on ancient pre Ptolemaic Egyptian time lines while weaving fictional accounts involving strong characters.

    If you are interested, please reply to this email and see my links for sample pages.

    Thank you.

    The Protectress

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

  11. Hello,

    I am emailing to request a review for my new book, Sunlight, a paranormal romance of 79k words.
    in a fast-paced tale of one girl’s faith, the price of true love, and an epic battle with a stunning reveal, a young woman, Jo, heads to a forest with friends for a weekend. She prays Mike will fall in love with her, but the forest reveals a terrible secret once the sun goes down and Jo is hurled into a fight for her life. Her bravery and unrelenting faith do cause Mike to see her differently, but Jo’s feelings have been changed by another, whose hidden identity will break her heart.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  12. The book I wish to have reviewed is in the genre of Vintage erotic romance, but I see it as much more than that description covers. An abused housewife in 1944 gains relief from her abusive husband and finds a life, she had only dreamed of, with a wealthy sexually knowledgeable man. He lovingly teaches her that sex is more than an enjoyment for men. Sarah Barnes is the main character. She helps another abused woman gain freedom from her sadistic husband. Amazon is the most well known source for the inexperienced reader and I wish to have a review done there, BUT Lovers Lies and Lilies is also published on Smashwords. Each has reviews with Amazon having more than Smashwords. The coupon for Smashwords is AK97D It is not case sensitive. I grew up with an abusive father and I based the book on that aspect of my life. I suppose as revenge in the only form available to me. Sexual scenes are moderately prevalent in the story as it shows Sarah’s sexual development and experiences.
    The page count on Smashwords is 139 with 61,180 words. Part two of Lovers Lies and Lilies is in the process of editing. I expect it to be available before the end of this month as it is more than half done now.
    Thank you for considering my work. I do hope you review it and that you also enjoy reading

  13. My latest thriller novel, When the Reaper Comes, was released on November 4. I hope you’ll consider reviewing it.

    As the NSA gets a strong lead on one of the most prominent faces of ISIS, the Islamic State embarks on a bold course of action: an attack on American soil. Former Navy SEAL Adam Taylor, on a break between assignments for a paramilitary global security firm, is visiting his folks in his home town when he gets a new mission – provide security for a controversial rock star who is in town to give a concert. Unknown to Adam, a team of American ISIS soldiers will soon arrive, determined to wreak havoc on the Jersey Shore, and Adam will get caught up in a deadly battle of wits between the terrorist menace and those tasked to protect the homeland.

    If you’re interested, I have a pdf copy to send you.

  14. Beautiful Delusions: The Pride and Honor Series is a Romantic Suspense that is set to release on March 8th 2017. I am also putting together my own blog tour and was wondering if you might be interested in hosting a tour stop as well!

He finally gets his chance to make amends for his horrible behavior, but is it too late?
    Neither one of them expected the attraction between them would be so great. Now the only thing Griffin wants more than Kaylee in his bed, is her safe from the man who wants to take her away and torture her.

  15. Hey! I came across this blog from the Indie Reviewers Page, and I’d love it if I can interest you in my new series, The Rosamond Series. It’s a coming of age story of a young girl who has to start her life again away from home. The story is categorized as a Victorian Contemporary Romance Saga. And to be fair, there isn’t much romance at the very start; she’s, like, 12, guys. LOL! But, if you’re willing to take the ride with the storyline, you might be pleasantly surprised. Here’s the blurb from Amazon:

    “I must… learn to be proper. To be good.”

    Immersed in a new way of life and surrounded by strange faces, a journey far from home begins for a girl who must make amends for her…behavior. Too naïve to fully grasp her exit, she is away to a place where the comforts of the society which she once knew—comforts that she took for granted—are entirely stripped away. Before her lies just one path, and those she has left behind are left with memories of a girl who no longer exists. Somehow, she is gone without a trace, without any sign of where she could be, and without any sign of returning.

    Can such a disappearance be put to rights? Perhaps it was all just some sort of… misunderstanding.

    The eBook is permanently free on Amazon. You can download it at ANY time!

    I really hope to hear from you! Thanks for your time! And thanks for all you do!

  16. I’d love it if you could review my book, Betting On Kincade by Devon McKay. It’s a 218 page standalone, contemporary romance due out on February 15th. Below is the blurb and an excerpt to see if you would be interested in reviewing my book.

    Betting On Kincade Blurb:

    Everyone Cassie Wilcox loved is gone. And now, thanks to her drunken stepfather, her house and family business will be taken from her, too, unless she can find a way to buy back the ranch from the new owner. With less than two months to come up with money she doesn’t have, her options are running out, and apparently, her common sense as she rents out rooms to an eclectic group of strangers.
    Returning home for Dalton Kincade is bittersweet. Not a damn thing has changed. Two years on the rodeo circuit weren’t able to shake free the memory of the feisty redhead who’d broken his heart into a thousand pieces. Nor the sting of her parting words…Never trust a Kincade.
    Winning her beloved ranch in a drunken bet is the last thing he expected to happen, but at least he saved it for her. Now, he has to figure out how to break that news to a woman who never wants to see him again. Renting a room in the house he now owns might be a risk, but it’s nothing compared to betting his heart on winning back the love of his life.

    Betting On Kincade Excerpt:

    “Are you going to play or just sit there?” Gary Evans slurred in drunken angst as he kicked back his chair and leaned over the table. Not waiting for a reply, he picked up the crisp piece of paper lodged between them, waved it in the air, and then, slammed the deed to the Wilcox land back down on the hard pressed wood.
    Cautiously, Dalton stationed a deadly stare on the intoxicated fool and noted the shimmering of glee highlighting the steel gray of the man’s eyes. Tapping the top card, he slowly trailed his finger along the swirled red print.
    He was a loser no matter the outcome. Should’ve just walked away. Ignored Gary’s foolish bet and the taunts that followed once the hook had been set. It wasn’t as if Cassie would appreciate his effort anyway. Regardless, he couldn’t walk away and let her lose it all.
    Clenching his jaw, he folded his fingers around the squared edges and paused before picking up the pile.
    “Read ‘em and weep,” Gary squealed gleefully as he tossed his cards next to the deed. “Four deuces.” He stumbled from the end of the table, closing the gap between them in one stride, before managing to shove a quadruple of stubby digits in front of Dalton’s face. “Four.”
    Dalton studied his hand with guarded fury, then stifled the drunkard’s premature victory with a flick of his wrist.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. Hi,

    I work for Reverse Entropy Publishing and we are looking for people to review our first ever book Regolith! The book is here on Amazon:

    Regolith is a dramatic pop-fiction/sci-fi crossover based around the birth of artificial consciousness. It brings together a variety of different characters including Elle, the woman in charge of this huge discovery.

    I hope you’re interested in the book, if you are let me know and I can send you a copy to review.

  18. First off, thank your time. I understand that you are busy and I appreciate the time you are taking to read this.

    I am looking for book reviews and came across your site. My book, St. Matthew’s House, was released in July of 2016. It was featured in a virtual book tour but what it really needs is more reviews posted on Amazon and Goodreads.

    St. Matthew’s House is a paranormal romance novella. Approximately 118 pages on Kindle/166 pages in print. I hope that you will consider that while thinking about your decision.

    Here is the description. (As of writing this email, the description is being updated on Amazon so if you looked the book up, you might see the old version.)

    “An enchanting story that leaves you breathless and wanting more all the way through. This story is one that is a mix of romance and paranormal that arouses and heightens the senses. There are unforeseen surprises at every chapter, and this book is a true page turner. The ending draws you in and leaves you wanting more.” – A Paranormal Romance Reader

    15 years ago, Adam walked through the doors of St. Matthew’s church. Obsessed with his ex-girlfriend, TaShena, he vows that if she won’t be his; she won’t be anyone else’s either. Adam murders her as she walks down the aisle. In front of the crowd of screaming family and friends, he then puts the gun to his head.

    Sounds of footsteps, and cries from a woman, causes the attendance at St. Matthew’s to drop. The Catholic diocese then closes the church. Years later, a local man, looking to make a buck, purchases the abandoned church and converts it into a house. The St. Matthew’s House.

    Sophia Demitri moved to Greenville to escape her obsessive ex-boyfriend. After renting a house she found through an online classified, she learns that her new home used to be that same church.

    Frankie Everhart lives his life carelessly until visions of his deceased bride, and a mysterious engagement ring, sends Sophia straight into his arms.

    Things are going bump-in-the-night in the St. Matthew’s House and Sophia thinks she’s going insane. Her and Frankie are falling in love….but the St. Matthew’s House has a mind of its own.

    Move over TaShena, Adam has a new obsession! He killed for love once but will he be able to do it again?
    St. Matthew’s House is a stand-alone novella. But… you never know if ghosts will return or not.

    Would you be interested in a copy of St. Matthew’s House?
    Thank you for your time,

  21. The most interesting book review request you will get this microfortnight.


    As a successful blogger, I am certain you are overwhelmed with requests for reviews. HOWEVER, I have covertly been perfecting a quiver of enticing approaches to ask you to perform a review of my book on your blog. I can beg, bribe, intimidate or impress.

    Pretty pleeaaassseeee……. I will give you $100…. that my hired muscle will beat out of you, if you will agree to read my chef-d’oeuvre. Are you now suitably enticed?

    For your consideration, TORN: The Story of an Undeserving Wallaby Drowning in a Septic Tank. The first book of the TORN trilogy.

    After suffering an unimaginable heart break, a dejected man suffers through depression and frustration. After four years of misery he considers ending it all.
    What began as a suicide note then turns into a hilariously sarcastic, disruptive and unapologetic book series.
    Only when we start to die, do we stop apologizing for who we are and what we go through.

    If now intrigued, petrified for your safety, or in desperate need of money please request whatever format you prefer and I will happily send it to you.

    Thanking you in advance,

We are particularly interested in getting more reviews on Amazon, though cross-posting on your blog and sites like Goodreads would also be a great help!

    I have Disconnected available in multiple different digital copies, so please let me know if you are interested in receiving one and which format works best for you!

    Take care,

  25. Dear Harlow and Jolene,
    I’m writing today on behalf of Mad Muse Studio, a small press publisher that has recently released its first book. We have read some of the reviews you’ve done on Home Is Where The Wine Is and enjoyed your insights, and were hoping that you would consider reviewing Monsters I Have Known, our flagship book by award-winning author, Jess Hartley.
    Monsters I Have Known is a collection of 13 short stories, connected by the titular theme. They range in genre from urban fantasy/paranormal romance to steampunk to creepy-but-not-gory horror, offering readers a broad selection of fictional taste-temptations. Ranging from under 2K to novella-length, each tale is prefaced by an insightful and informative introduction from the author (many readers have expressed enjoying these as much as the stories themselves!). Some of the stories in the anthology have been previously published by other small presses, while many make their world-debut in this collection.
    Monsters I Have Known is 185 pages, and was published by Mad Muse Studio earlier this month, under ISBN 9780692913994. Although our debut offering, Monsters I Have Known has already received several 5-star reviews on, and is available in both trade paperback and epub formats.
    We would love to send you an electronic copy of Monsters I Have Known, so that you may give it a look at your convenience.
    We at Mad Muse Studio realize that book bloggers like yourself have an overwhelming selection of books available to you. We appreciate you taking time to read our request, and look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions about MIHK or our company.
    All Our Best,
    Mad Muse Studio

  26. Hi Home is where the wine is,
    Thank you for following me in Twitter. Can I request a review? A BURNING IN THE DARKNESS is a compelling crime drama and poignant love story about a devoted man who confronts the painful legacy of his war torn childhood to make the world a better place. The devoted Michael Kieh is wrongfully convicted of murder at one of the world’s busiest airports where he is a full time faith representative. A series of brief encounters with a soul mate has eased his loneliness, but ultimately he chooses to protect a young witness who could prove his innocence. As a boy, Michael witnessed appalling abuses of power, including the killing of a missionary priest who refused to betray young Michael. But there was a first love that he left behind in the brutal confusion of war. When she and Michael cross paths once more, they battle to prove his innocence in a foreign, hostile country.

  29. Hi,

    I came across your details on, ‘Indie Book Review’. I read through your website which says that you are interested in reviewing the books and are accepting submissions. I have written a novel, ‘Awake Under the Night Sky’, which has been recently published. It is a cross between Romance (not Erotica) and Women’s fiction. Below is the short blurb along with the link to the book.

    Witness to the ravages of poverty and neglect, Vivian is driven by a purpose, in a world that seems to have lost its conscience. In the fires of loss, a young and fierce Andre has forged an iron will to succeed. His journey halfway across the world does not deter him, but only strengthens his determination.

    Two people on the threshold of their lives, touched by love but driven by duty, following separate destinies. He has a past to restore, she has a future to change. Are their paths destined never to converge, or might the vagaries of fate unlock the buried dreams of two proud hearts, and offer a new beginning?

    The book has about 76000 words and was released on the 04th of September.

    If you would be interested in reading and reviewing the book, please let me know. The book goes free on Amazon from the 24th of November to 25th of November. I am planning to start a marketing campaign and before that wanted to get some reviews in place.

    Looking forward to a positive response.

    Many thanks

  30. Hello,
    My name is Marco Etheridge, and my novel The Best Dark Rain: A Post-Apocalyptic Struggle for Life and Love has just been published on Amazon. I am seeking reviews for my novel. Given your site’s focus upon Paranormal Romance, I thought it might be of interest to you.

    The Best Dark Rain is a story about two people trying to survive while keeping their relationship alive. There is precious little room for love in a dead city, a dead world. For not quite everyone died. Better if they had. Armed bands stalk the streets. In the shadows worse enemies prowl, horrible enemies. At the center of this bleak urban waste lies a makeshift fort. It is the refuge of Liz Walker and Pat O’Shea. They are the last living couple in the shell of what was once Seattle.

    Here on these dead streets a woman and a man must learn to love and fight. They bear weapons scavenged from the dead. Each of them carries the shadow of a past that could threaten their future.

    Amid murderous survivors and unlikely allies, the threat of hunters and the danger of trusting, Liz and Pat must battle for their lives. The stakes are high. For they must protect their new-found love as well as their lives. To lose either means to face alone this horrific world.

  33. I’m Bellamy Westbay and I would love for you to review my new book, Revelations (The Infinity Series, Vol.1). This book is the first in its series. It’s a combination of contemporary romance, fantasy, and science fiction that will lead readers on a journey of love, lust, revenge, and betrayal. Book one is an introduction of sorts, bringing all the players together, in a complex yet steamy plot. Books two through four will send them out into the universe on an exciting adventure. This book is filled with plot twists, and characters I’m sure you’ll love.
    I’m self-publishing this book and intend to publish around February 28, 2018. With your permission, I would love to send you a digital copy in whatever format works best for you.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    -Bellamy Westbay

    From the back cover of my book:
    When modern-day twists with the old texts from the creation of time, you find a story that leads a group of friends on a journey, one that will change their lives and possibly the world’s….

    Gwen Adams was faced a tough decision. On one side there was Alexander, the rich, powerful, devastatingly sexy man who intoxicated her with his very presence. On the other, the poor, hardworking, and gorgeous Ky, who’d earned her friendship and stolen her heart.

    Alexander Prescott was bored with the predictability of eternity when his world was rocked by a beautiful woman who looked exactly like his long lost love. Despite the fact that she was human, he knew he’d found the woman destined for him. That was, until he met Gwen.

    As outside forces push Alexander and Gwen together, another more sinister force lurks in the shadows, determined to destroy him.

    Torn between the woman destined for him, and the one he desperately desired, what would he do?

  35. Good afternoon,

    I love your book review page and would like to send you a book I just read! It’s called The Divorce Era by Angel Salinas Cantu and is about relationships and divorce these days. I found it entertaining and would love to hear your opinion on it. If you’re interested, could you please respond with your mailing address?

    Thank you in advance! I hope to hear from you soon and read your thoughts on the book soon after.

    Your biggest fan,

  36. Hi Ladies!
    I would be honored to submit my novel, Talk to Me, to you for your consideration. It’s a 70K word romance with comedy, “feels,” and a touch of mystery. I have included the blurb below for your review.

    Getting what you want isn’t always what you need.

    Austin is rebuilding his life after a car accident shattered his leg and his self-confidence. He wants nothing more than to gain his independence. Figuring out why he now hears voices would be an added bonus.

    Laura can’t fathom losing yet another loved one. The death of her brother and business partner still has her reeling, although it seems he might not have completely given up the ghost.

    When Laura plays the reluctant heroine to Austin’s caffeine emergency, they form a bond neither of them was looking for. As tough love makes way for real sparks, Austin’s newfound ability helps Laura gain closure. Unfortunately, her brother’s well-meaning words may be the very thing that causes her to pull away from the man who finally sneaks past her defenses.

    As Austin reconnects with his past, can Laura put hers behind her?

    I have various forms available for your convenience, including epub, mobi, pdf, and hard copy.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Roseanne Beck

  37. Hi Amy,
    I hope you are well. I read your website/blog with interest after seeing your name in The Book Reviewer Yellow Pages. I’m interested in submitting one or possibly two books for you to review—if they appeal to you. They are both British Historical Novels based on true stories. They are also suspenseful, action adventure, showing people’s struggles against the hands they are dealt.

    The first: The Ghost of Captain Hinchliffe 240 pages (paranormal themes/womens’s fiction), published August 2017.
    Editor: Lauren Dennington

    The second: The Airshipmen, 660 pages, published January 2016.
    Editors: Steven Bauer, Director of Creative Writing, Miami University, Oxford, OH. &

    I guess the easiest thing to do is send you the link to the 30 second video spot and Amazon book pages.



    AMAZON: THE AIRSHIPMEN*Version*=1&*entries*=0#reader_B01AAVZ1T8

    Please let me know if these books are of interest and I will send files and more details.

  38. Hi. The following is a press release for my new novel, “Fresh News Straight from Heaven,” which is about the life and lore of Johnny Appleseed. In harsh and violent times, Johnny was a pacifist, preacher, vegetarian, animal lover, tree-hugger, and overall legendary oddball. This is the first adult novel with Johnny as a main character published in many decades. I think that, these days, we could all use a little Johnny Appleseed in our lives. I’d love to send you a review copy.

    Gregg Sapp

    Fresh News Straight from Heaven:

    a Novel on the True Mythology of Johnny Appleseed

    by Award Winning Author Gregg SAPP

    Evolved Publishing ( and Gregg Sapp of Tumwater, WA announce the release of the novel, “Fresh News Straight from Heaven,” which is based upon the history and folklore of John Chapman (1774-1845) – aka, Johnny Appleseed.

    Almost everybody has heard of Johnny Appleseed. Whether from a children’s book or a history course from long ago, or just from images and stories embedded in folk culture, the character of Johnny Appleseed is an enduring piece of Americana. Wherever he went, strolling barefoot through the frontier of Ohio and Indiana, with a mush pot on his head, a pack of seeds on his back, and a Bible in his hand, he declared that he was bringing with him “Fresh News Straight from Heaven.” Today, he is remembered as gentle and loving as he was eccentric.

    “Fresh News Straight from Heaven” takes place in the brutal and lawless Ohio and the Indiana territory between 1801 and 1812. This land teems with soldiers, scoundrels, freebooters, runaway slaves, circuit riders, and religious cultists. Meanwhile, a reformed drunkard emerges among the Shawnee as a Prophet. Along with his brother, the war chief Tecumseh, the Prophet begins building an Indian coalition to take back their land. As the tensions mount, Johnny skates blithely through the crossfire and turmoil, spreading his message, impervious to the mockery and derision being heaped upon him. When the War of 1812 breaks out, Johnny, in a desperate act of faith, promises the people he can save them. Thus, he dashes off on a midnight run, seeking to spread peace across a land on the brink of war. With so many lives at stake, Johnny must confront the ultimate test of his convictions.

    “Fresh News Straight from Heaven” is the first adult novel with Johnny Appleseed as its main character published in decades. Based on many hours of research, it depicts actual historical events and characters, along with plot twists consistent with the rich oral traditions associated with him.

    Gregg Sapp, a native Ohioan, is a Pushcart Prize nominated writer, who has published humor, poetry, and short stories in Defenestration, Waypoints, Semaphore, Kestrel, Zodiac Review, Marathon Review, and been a frequent contributor to Midwestern Gothic. Reviewers of his first novel, Dollarapalooza, called it “…an outside-the-box tale too good to be missed” (Library Journal) and promised that “[Readers]… will find themselves thoroughly entertained by the wacky tale of a failed prodigal son who becomes the unsung alter ego of his family” (Booklist).

    Evolved Publishing is an emerging small press publisher, founded in 2011 and dedicated to giving readers high quality, compelling, interesting, fun, funny and heartwarming entertainment.
