How to Request a Review

Now in our 16th year. Over 1,300 books reviewed!

If you’d like to have your book reviewed, please contact us at the following email addresses with a synopsis of your book. Please use the subject header “Review Requested: Title of your book” so your request doesn’t go to our spam folder.  Don’t send a file copy of your book as an attachment – it will not be read.  We only review print books. No e-books or electronic copies of any kind will be considered.

We normally only respond if we’re accepting your book.  Follow-ups can be made after two weeks to be sure we’ve received your email.  If we don’t respond at that time, you can assume we’re not interested.  Once we have agreed to review your book, we will provide a mailing address.

This is a review website only.  We don’t promote any crowd funding campaigns and we don’t post articles from guest authors.

We are conservative Catholics and we don’t review books that include the promotion of “alternative lifestyles.”  We are also pro-Trump and we’re very tired of being asked to review books that disparage our President.  If you pitch anti-Trump books or anything regarding “pride” month, we will request to be removed from your mailing list.  NO exceptions!

Outdoors and nature books, especially Christian focused.

** It’s been a great run, but it’s no longer fun reviewing books.  I loved seeing children’s books that let kids just be kids and have fun, but nowadays, it seems like all kids books have a hidden agenda.  Kids don’t want to read books that preach at them, and neither do reviewers.  I will only accept occasional books that actually look like a fun read.  If you’re trying to preach some kind of message, don’t bother to email about your book – I am not interested.  **

Cozy mysteries, Christian fiction / non-fiction, and motivational / inspirational audio programs and music.

Unfortunately, I am no longer accepting children’s books from any new sources.  Since too many publishers are pushing their “woke” agenda, I don’t have the ability to properly screen incoming books, and I don’t want to waste my time reading a book that I will not review.  If you have a long-standing review relationship with me, please let me know, and confirm that your books are consistent with my conservative values.  Thank you.

Due to the large volume of requests we receive, we may not be able to fit your book into our schedule. We are only two people, so if we do accept your book, please anticipate at least a six month wait for your review to be posted–we follow a “first-in, first-out” schedule.  We have day jobs, too, and this is a free service we offer to authors.

Acceptance of your book does not guarantee a review.  At this time, we will consider self-published works on very limited basis, and only if they are accompanied by a favorable and trustworthy review.

For a complete listing of all books reviewed, please see the Catalog.  All books featured on this site have been provided free of charge to the reviewer.  Amazon affiliate links help keep the site running.  Thank you for clicking to purchase.
