Review Policy

I am currently accepting books for review.

I accept Fantasy, Sci-Fi and Cozy Mysteries, though not Dystopian or post-apocalyptic. I review Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade.

I accept ARCs, finished copies, and ebooks. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books.

I am NOT accepting self-published books, or indie press books at this time. If they are already on my to be read pile, they will get reviewed, however I am not accepting more. The only exception to this is if I have already reviewed a book of yours and it has gotten 4 or 5 stars.

Review Policy:

I write reviews for every book I finish, and they will be posted to this blog as well as Twitter and Amazon.

My reviews will always be my honest opinion. If I like the book, it will reflect that. If I didn’t like the book, it will reflect that as well.

That said, I try to explain in my reviews why it did or did not work for me.

If I did not finish the book, I may still review it up to the page I read. I will clearly state why I did not finish it, if I plan to pick it up and try again, and where I stopped reading.

Review Structure & Star Rating:

All reviews will have the following format:

Book cover
Author
Book Length
Published Date
How I got my copy (purchased, author or publisher gift in exchange for a review)
A summary from the book, or my own words if no summary can be found.
My review
A star rating

Stars:

1 Star: I really didn’t like this book.

2 Stars: Significant number of things I didn’t like that negatively impacted my overall enjoyment, though I may still have liked some parts of this book.

3 Stars: I liked this book over all, but there were still enough factors I didn’t like to affect my enjoyment.

3.5 Stars: A book that is above average, though didn’t quite fit the “perfect for me”. It’s still a good and solid rating.

4 Stars: I really liked this book. It wasn’t a “perfect 5” for me, but I still really liked it.

5 Stars: I loved this book! It’s a “perfect 5” match, and means it is something I must have a copy of at all times so that I can re-read it over and over again.

Thank you for reading the entire page, if you are still interested in my reviewing your book, you may now contact me at: LadyLark at hotmail dot com.

    My name is Andy Malone and I have recently published my first novel. A science fiction mystery thriller called The Seventh Day. It’s a fast paced thriller which has been described as Highlander meets Angels and Demons with volcanoes. So far folks seem to be really enjoying it and at the moment I’m hard at work on the sequel.

    For myself the important thing is to get it noticed and this is why I’ve contacted you, as I would really value your opinion. I’ve enclosed a synopsis of the story below. I would be happy to make myself available for Q&A, interview, blog post etc.
    I have some cover art that I can send. In terms of availability, it’s published by Dark Nebula Publishing and distributed via Ingram and is available to order from most booksellers and websites worldwide. I‘m of course happy to provide you with copy in either paperback or eBook, whatever your preference.

    Anyway I do hope that you will consider my request and should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks again and kind regards

    Andy

    Synopsis

    Beginning in an eighteenth century Scottish village. The Seventh Day is a tense and atmospheric science fiction thriller, written in the vein of classics, such as Highlander, The Da Vinci Code and the Day the Earth Stood Still. Moving through a number of international locations, the action takes our characters on a rollercoaster journey from Alva in Scotland, to London, Rome and eventually to Iceland where the story concludes with a cataclysmic battle between good and evil.

    Meet Dougie Allan. An eighteenth century Scottish silver miner who accidentally unearths a plot by a group of sinister beings called the keepers. Disillusioned with the human race and of its apparent love of violence, these creatures set about resetting the planet to allow a less aggressive species to evolve. As a consequence of his discovery, Dougie is catapulted 300 years forward through time into our modern world.

    Arriving amidst a backdrop of catastrophic natural disasters. Dougie befriends a local man, Tom Duncan and a feisty reporter Kate Harding who agree to work together with the authorities to uncover the truth. Unfortunately, their investigation is hampered by a series of seemingly unrelated murders. Now they must battle for their lives against a ruthless assassin. One who appears determined to stop at nothing to protect a secret so shocking that it lies at the very heart of world power itself.

    As a conspiracy unfolds and the world teeters on the brink of disaster. Dougie receives a cryptic message from one of the creatures. If deciphered he hopes that this olive branch could somehow save humanity. But as world leaders assemble in Iceland for a vital conference, everything is not as it seems. Now it’s Dougie who must face his greatest challenge yet and somehow prevent the destruction of the human race.

      Unfortunately, your book doesn’t sound like a good fit for me. Thank you for contacting me about it, and I hope you are able to find other bloggers who would be a better fit for your book.
