About Mostly Mysteries

I post mystery book reviews and recommendations, and occasionally review literary fiction, memoirs and poetry. If you are a self-published author, published through a small or indie press, or even a large publisher (and don’t think you’re getting enough exposure), check out my Book Review Policy page. Then use the contact form to get in touch with me about doing a review of your book. I do not review erotica, romance or science fiction.

I am an enthusiastic reader. All my life, reading has been a major hobby of mine. Books live everywhere in my house, even the garage. One of the reasons I started a blog was to have a conversation about books and pass on recommendations when I found ones I really liked.

My best book loves are cozy mysteries, some literary fiction, poetry, and anything pertaining to Sherlock Holmes (including pastiches, modern reinterpretations, and even nonfiction discussions about A. Conan Doyle’s most famous work).

Although I focus on mystery reviews, I look forward to reading, and then posting a review about, your work. I review previously published works as well as those about to be published.

I am generally booked up for a few months in advance, so I may not get to your book right away. Please be patient with me.

I am a poet, short story writer, and photographer. 

Indie authors, take note! If you’re seeking proofreading and light copyediting services for your manuscript, visit Cairns Creative Services. I might be able to assist you.
