Review Policy

I publish my reviews on this Blog, Goodreads and Amazon. My aim is always to publish my reviews as close to the publication date as possible and/or in a timely manner after receiving the review copy, but my family and paid work come first.

I will not accept any monetary compensation for my reviews. All reviews are my thoughts and mine alone. I will be honest with every book I read and review, regardless of whether I purchased the book or if it was given to me to review.

I do accept review copies *see note below*, but books that I have requested get first preference in terms of reading order.

Unfortunately, as hard as I try and as much as I would like, I can’t guarantee when/if reviews will be posted. Two small boys and a full time automotive admin job can eat away at all my waking hours some days – So unsolicited review copies are unlikely to be read in a timely manner.

*NOTE* What I’m willing to accept (at the moment):
– Physical copies only (I stare at a computer screen all day for work and then again to write my reviews. I do not want to have to stare at a screen to read a book).
– Any YA by an Aussie Author.
– Any MG by an Aussie Author.
– Children’s picture books (keep in mind that I road test these on a four-year boy).
If you are an indie Aussie author and I like the sound of your book, or I’ve read your work before, I may bend the physical copy rule and accept and eBook – especially if it is LGBTIQ+ friendly and has dragons.

If you would like to contact me to review a book please fill out the form below. Please include the review time frame you are hoping for and the book’s synopsis.
