Review policy Instructions ...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:

  • Romance

  • Erotica


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. All accepted books are placed in order of queue  and reviews are written as quickly as  humanly possible ( I have a full time gig and projects of my own)   My limit will likely depend on my availability. Accepted Science Fiction Books  will be review by International Sci-Fi Guru David  "Magnificent Bastard" Ramirez (Guest Reviewers Are Welcome,Send an Email).
