Book Reviews for Indie Authors

I love to do book reviews for indie authors or authors that work with small publishers. If you’re published through one of the major publishers but feel that your work isn’t getting the attention it deserves, feel free to contact me using the form on my Contact page. In your message, please include a short synopsis and what genre your book falls into as well as your name and email. I will reply to your email if I am interested in reviewing your book. In my response, I’ll give you information about forwarding your book to me. Generally, if you do not hear back from me in five business days, I will not be reviewing your book.  (However, occasionally I may contact you outside of that time frame depending on my workload.)

Reviews appear first on my blog.  Other places where I may leave reviews are Goodreads, Amazon, Instagram, BookBub, and Barnes and Noble. Also, I post a few reviews to Litsy (a smartphone app and website for readers).

I review books in mystery, suspense, memoir, literary fiction, poetry and historical fiction. I do not review erotica, romance or science fiction.

When I respond positively that I will review your book, I 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 state in getting book reviews for indie authors or from small presses.

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.
