A Bastard's Current Reading


Short Instructions but please read:

I am  mostly interested in reviewing novels and short stories from indie writers (my favorites are non-fiction and coming of age stories)  ; however, I will consider reviewing other genres on a select, case-by-case basis. However, here are the genres I WILL NOT review under any circumstance:

  • Genre Romance

  • Erotica

  • Fantasy


I will write a brief, concise and to-the-point review as I don't believe in reviews that summarize the entire novel.  I only accept mobi files or PDF files.  I will be honest but constructive in my reviews. 

I check all submissions and emails currently I am on Beijing time.  I will consider each submission, but I will not guarantee I will review your book or reply to your submission.  Open for past, present , and future publication dates. My limit will likely be two or three per month.

Jan/Feb Current Reading Queue. 1) Imitatore by A. Rose 2) The Usurper King Zeb Haradon 3) GUNPOWDER WITCH by Jordan Williams 4) Open submission P.S. Reviewers wanted


Guess Reviewers Are Welcome (Send an Email)

I will rate your novel on a 5 star scale as follows:

5 stars - Excellent

4 stars - Good

3 stars - Average

2 stars - Not great

1 star - Bad. Really bad
