Book Reviews for Indie Authors

I’d love to do book reviews for indie authors or authors that work with small publishers. If you have a book you’d like me to review, contact me using the form on my Contact Me page. In your message, please include a short synopsis and what genre your book falls in as well as your name and email. You’ll receive a reply if I am interested in reviewing your book. I’ll give you further information about forwarding your book to me. Generally, if you do not hear from me within three to five business days, I will not be reviewing your book. (However, I may contact you outside of this time frame depending on my workload.)

Reviews appear on my blog. Other places where I leave reviews are Goodreads, Twitter and Facebook. Also, reviews occasionally post to Litsy (a smartphone app for readers), and Instagram. I do not post reviews on Amazon.

I review books in the following genres:
• Mystery and Suspense
• Literary Fiction

I occasionally review poetry. But I do not review erotica, romance or science fiction.

I try to review books within a month or two, but this lead time may lengthen as I interact with more authors. When I respond positively that I want to review your book, I will give a tentative time frame about when I will read and review your book.

Pass the word about my blog to your author friends, editor, or publicist – anyone with a stake in getting book reviews for indie authors or from small presses.

I’m on Twitter as @JaneACairns and Instagram as janeacairns.
