Review Policy

I read mainly using a kindle, so please could you ensure a kindle version (.mobi file) is available, or alternatively a paperback copy, before submitting a review request. Thank you.

I'm happy to consider review requests in the following genres and their sub-genres:

  • Horror
  • Action & Adventure
  • Crime & Mystery
  • Thriller
  • Science Fiction 

I've always been a big fan of Horror fiction and more recently Psychological Thrillers. Requests in these two categories are particularly welcome.

I don't accept Young Adult books unless from authors I've previously reviewed. Please also note that I have no interest in Erotica, Historical Romance or Poetry.

In addition to Barnsey's Books, my reviews are published on:

  • Amazon (UK)
  • Amazon (US)
  • Barnes & Noble (US)
  • Bookbridgr
  • Goodreads
  • Twitter
  • Waterstones (UK) 

I publish privately to my timeline and in various book groups on Facebook. I save public 'pins' of all the books I've reviewed on Pinterest. These link back to my blog.

I'm happy to consider review requests from publishers, publicists and authors (including self-published authors).

I don't share books with any third parties and I won't reveal plot twists or spoilers. All reviews are my honest opinion and given freely without payment.

I'll contact you by email within a maximum of 3 days if your request is accepted.

As much as I would like to, it would be impossible to accept every book submitted. Please don't feel offended if I decline a request - it's usually due to time constraints or considering myself unsuitable for your book's content or genre. Unfortunately I'm unable to send emails for declined requests due, once again, to time constraints so please accept my apologies.
