If you have a historical novel or non-fiction work set in the medieval period (by my definition, 500-1500 AD), please disregard the following and send me an email.
First off, I’d like to thank you for considering me to review your book(s)! I very much enjoy reading and reviewing and I will do my best by your publications. I consider reviewing for you a tremendous privilege. I do, however, have some guidelines for your consideration before you contact me directly so that we can both make the most efficient use of our time.
Genres: I will review historical fiction, literary fiction, non-fiction history, craft books, cookbooks, memoirs, historical romance, young adult, fantasy, and science fiction. I will happily accept any of the above in ebook format as long as it works with the Kindle.
I will not review erotica, thrillers, mysteries, or chick lit. I can no longer accept self-published books for review as I do not have the time.
Time frame: If you are sending me an ARC, I will do my best to read and review the book within one week of its release date. If that is not possible or if your book has already been released, I will review it 1-4 months from the day I receive it. When you email me, I will be able to give you a more realistic estimate. Review copies can be sent to either my address in the USA or my address in the UK, where I currently live, depending on your preference. I am a legal resident of both countries.
My reviews: When I write a review, I endeavor to provide my readers with my honest opinion. I will not needlessly criticize your book, but I will say if I did not like it. I will do my best to point out its good bits and find its target audience if that audience is not me. In my reviews, I include a picture and links to both LibraryThing and Amazon for more information and purchase of the book. I will include other links on request. I review every book I read.
If I cannot finish your book, I will do my best to give it away to another blogger who will read and review it. I cannot force them to do so, but I will try. I will not sell review copies.
I will always post my reviews on LibraryThing. I will post them to Amazon upon request. I do these in batches. If you would like yours posted at a specific time or on another website, please specify in your email.
Other posts: I love hosting authors for guest posts or interviews. I am also happy to host giveaways.
All requests and further questions should be sent to my email address, meghan at medievalbookworm dot com.
