Review Policy

I accept review requests in the following categories for consideration:
  • Horror
  • Action & Adventure
  • Crime & Mystery
  • Science Fiction
  • Thriller
Books from other categories will also be considered so please enquire if yours isn't listed.

Where my reviews are published:

In addition to Barnsey's Books, my reviews will be published publicly on Amazon, Goodreads and Waterstones websites.

I post public links on my Twitter account to books I have reviewed on goodreads. 


I publish privately on Facebook. 

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

Books are not shared with any third parties unless permission has been granted from the author or publisher. 

I will not reveal any plot twists or spoilers.

I do not accept payment for my reviews.  

As much as I would like to, it would be impossible to accept every book submitted for review. Please don't be offended if I decline a request - it's usually due to time management issues or considering myself unsuitable for your book's content / genre.

Review copies are accepted in paperback, although my preference is for mobi files compatible with the Kindle. I also use Adobe Digital Editions and pdf files.

Reviews are my honest opinion. This can be either positive or negative. Occasionally I may not finish a book if it becomes too tedious; in which case an honest review of the pages completed will be published.

Please use my contact form to request a review.
