I only review historical fiction on this blog, both mainstream and Indie.
Favorite topics: stories set in England, Europe, Russia, China, Japan, and India (all time periods), sagas, biographical HF, less familiar historical settings or subjects (off-the-beaten path), WW1 and WW2, and international titles.
Please do not offer military fiction, alternate history, mysteries, Westerns, or nonfiction.
I will accept finished, bound books, ARCs, and galleys; however, I no longer accept e-books. The pleasure of reading for me is in the feel of crisp paper, not a cold device. 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 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: My reviewing time is limited at this point, being a full-time editor and mother, as well as volunteer reviews editor for the HNS. I read as often as I can, however, I cannot promise a review in any particular time frame.
