Review Policy



At the moment I'm temporarily closed for review requests due to the length of my review list. Once I'm on top of things I shall be open once again. Please come back and check.  
First and foremost, before submitting a book for review, may I respectfully ask that you view my review list to see how many books I currently have queued and if this works with your timescale.

I'm happy to consider review requests in the following categories:

Horror
Action & Adventure
Crime & Mystery
Thriller
Science Fiction

I don't accept Young Adult books unless from authors I've previously reviewed and I don't review books whose main theme is child abuse.

My reviews are published publicly on:

Barnsey's Books
Amazon (UK)
Amazon (US)
Goodreads
Twitter
Barnes & Noble (US)
Bookbridgr
Pinterest (my 'Top Rated Books' only)

I publish privately on Facebook

I'm happy to consider review requests from publishers, publicists and authors (including self-published authors). Although review dates cannot be guaranteed, priority will be given to books I have accepted from these sources. 

As much as I would like to, it would be impossible to accept every book submitted for review. 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. After all, you want someone who enjoys your genre to review your book.

If I accept your book I'll contact you by email within a maximum of 10 days. Unfortunately I'm unable to send emails for books I haven't accepted due, once again, to time constraints. Please accept my apologies.  

I don't share books with any third parties unless permission has been granted from the author or publisher. 

I won't reveal any plot twists or spoilers and I don't accept payment for my reviews.

Reviews are my honest opinion.  

I accept review copies in paperback, mobi (Kindle), epub and pdf formats. My preference is a mobi file for the Kindle if this is available.

Please use my contact form to request a review.
