7/22/13 - ***Update*** Due to a huge backlog of review books, I am currently not accepting any new books for review unless you are an author, publisher, or tour group I have previously worked with.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi, if you would like me to review your book, I read and review young adult, new adult, some adult novels, and occasionally middle grade novels.  I currently have a really, really huge backlog of books to review, but will be happy to take your request and add it to my list.  Please be aware that it may be some time before I can get to it.  Please note that if I don't get back to you, I do keep the requests in a file and respond when I am able to get to the review.

If you would like me to feature your book in a book spotlight with an interview and/or guest post, just let me know.  If they are a fit for my readers, I can get to that sooner than the review.  Thank you for your understanding.

Author's and Publishers I have previously worked with will be given first preference and will be pushed towards the top of the list.  

I post all reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Noble (if applicable), Goodreads, Shelfari, and Librarything, and my blog, of course.  I also post on NetGalley and Edelweiss if I have requested your book from there.

I would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions or comments. 

Just fill out the contact form below or e-mail me at



  1. Hello there, Ellen!

    My name is Vari Shaw. I'm a new author and I've recently self-published a collection of YA fiction called The Lady of Chains and Other Stories. I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review? The tales are a mix of fantasy, horror and a fairy tale retelling. A novel extract is also included.


    “Remember; you have seventy-two hours to do the deed and not a moment longer. Cut her throat and
    remove her heart. That, my girl, is the only way to destroy the wretched creature.”

    Greylock. A city supported by a network of scaffolding, bleeding rust and wheezing steam. Patrolled by an army of ‘metal men’—creatures who’re designed for nothing more than to kill and destroy. Nothing grows. Nothing truly lives.

    The tower stands like an ice-pick, pushing through a snarl of thorns, resting upon the outskirts of Greylock. Its shadow is cast across the city like an elongated clock-hand, chipping away the hours, the days. The years.
    It is home to the Lady of Chains, a woman incarcerated without a sentence. A woman who almost single-handedly destroyed the world . . .

    Viola, a young orphan girl, has been thrust into this nightmarish world by the devious Mrs Casket, caretaker of the tower and maid to the mysterious lady. She’s been given a task which could either see her demise or be her salvation.

    But who is the Lady of Chains? And why does she insist that she is connected to Viola? With the clock ticking and the metal men drawing near, Viola is about to learn that not everything is what it seems . . .

    A spellbinding fantasy with elements of steampunk.
