I only review historical fiction on this blog, focusing on self- and subsidy-published books; but, as you can see, I also review mainstream-published books that I can’t resist.
Favorite topics: sagas, stories set in England and Europe (all time periods), less familiar historical settings or subjects, WW1 and WW2, and international titles.
Please do not offer military fiction, alternate history, mysteries, Westerns, or nonfiction.
I prefer finished, bound books but will accept ARCs and galley formats as well. I no longer accept e-books. I can host guest posts and giveaways if requested.
My reviews are honest and may at times include constructive criticism. I take editing quality, layout, and design into consideration for self- and subsidy-published works; however, if the content is excellent, those elements will not preclude a review. I try to limit my acceptance of books for review to SP historical fiction that would appeal to the general public.
Submitting a work for review does not guarantee a review. I read at least fifty pages of each novel before deciding on review suitability. I only review books I’ve read in entirety. I will not sell review copies, and I will clarify if the book is a review copy at the end of each post.
Time frame: I would eventually like to review two books per month, but for the time being, I will review one per month. I will do my best to stick to this schedule, barring unforeseen events.
