Review policy

If you have a book published, whether through a large publisher or small indie press, and would like me to review it, you can email me at:

Please include the title, author, publisher, date of publication and ISBN, and if it’s an ARC (i.e. final print or not). Sometimes I have a long To Be Read list, but I’ll let you know if I can’t get to it in a reasonable time.

PLEASE NOTE that I don’t accept self-published books (either print or ebooks) for review for two reasons; first, because I already have more than enough to keep me busy and second, I have no idea how I would possibly choose between titles and there are only so many hours in a day. There seem to be so many self-published books it feels like I’d drown in a sea of attempted reviews. So, this is one way for me to keep sanity in my life.

However, I love good books, so am always happy to hear from authors of indie-published books, particularly if you’re an Aussie author with a debut novel. That goes double if it’s a YA novel, and triple if its sci-fi or fantasy, or any speculative fiction genre except splattery horror.

    Hi Sheree,

    I just tried sending you an email, which was bounced back to me, so now I will try this form instead. I am contacting you to see if you might have an interest in reviewing my novel, The Last Gods of Indochine (Signal 8 Press, released on 9/20/2016).

    Briefly, The Last Gods of Indochine (422 pages, excerpt below) was nominated for the Man Asian Literary Prize (“The Booker of Asia”), making me the only non-Asian to have been nominated for Asia’s most prestigious literary award. It was also designated an “Editors’ Choice” in the current issue of the quarterly magazine, Historical Novels Review.

    From the novel’s back-cover summary: “Jacquie Mouhot and Paaku the Lotus-Born are divided by six centuries but linked by a common curse. In medieval Cambodia, Paaku is an orphan whose community believes he may be a reluctant incarnation of a god, causing sectarian turmoil for the kingdom’s leaders. Meanwhile, in 1921, Jacquie follows the footsteps of her grandfather, a famous explorer, to Indochina, where she becomes immersed in the tragedy of Paaku’s history: a story simultaneously unfolding in the intertwined present and past, a story in which she still has a vital role to play.” The protagonist is female and the story includes romance.

    Here is the Amazon page:

    We greatly appreciate your time and consideration. If you so desire, let us know if we can send you an e-book (or hard copy if preferred).
