Review Policy

I get sent hundreds of books to read every month and I simply cannot read them all, no matter how much I’d like to.

If you truly think your book is just the kind of book I’ll adore, you may send it to me and see if it ever makes it out of my tottering ‘to-be-read’ pile. If a review of your book doesn’t appear, it means it didn’t catch my fancy and I’ll have donated it to charity.

Please don’t email me and harass me – it won’t make me like you or your book any better.
