First of all, I do review books, but rarely outside the speculative genres (science-fiction, fantasy, horror, paranormal romance, superheroes, alternative history, fairy tales, time-travel, etc.) and literary fiction with magic-realist elements.
I used to accept normal book-review requests. I don’t any longer because the demand is overwhelming. Given the requirements of parenting, working a day job, and doing my own writing, I only have time to review a few books a year. Yet I was receiving upwards of twenty requests a day. Wading through all those blurbs and bios ate up what time I had to actually read and review — and then some!
While I don’t accept actual review requests, I do like getting “ticklers” about new stuff as it comes out (or older stuff I might not have encountered). So, if you’d like to call a spec-fic book to my attention, “tickle” me: use the form below to send me the URL to the book’s Amazon page. Please keep in mind that this isn’t a formal book-review request. You won’t hear back from me. It’s just a way of calling something to my attention. If the book grabs me, I’ll buy it and read it; if I love it, I’ll review it. (I don’t review books I don’t love.)
