Review policy.

I read and review novels by female authors. I especially love discovering tense, twisty, psychological chillers, mysteries and Domestic Noir thrillers and family dramas. I also enjoy some quality historical fiction, literary fiction and selected romantic fiction.

I publish my reviews on my blog and Goodreads and regularly post them on Amazon uk where I'm in the top 2,000 reviewers, as well as having an active Twitter account @Beadyjan with nearly 1,000 followers, most of whom are involved in the literary world including publishers publicists and lots of authors. I'm a member of several lively book discussion groups on Facebook including #bookconnectors. I'm on the reading panels for Netgalley, Bookbridgr and Lovereading.

I am happy to accept print copies as well as ebooks for review and once I've agreed and accepted a book from you or your publisher I'm happy to accept further speculative submissions by post as long as they fit into my preferred genres, in fact I LOVE surprise bookmail and always Tweet about proofs and arc's I receive, usually with accompanying photos.

If I accept your book for review this means it will be added to my to be reviewed shelf, but I can't guarantee to review each and every one as my blog features the best of the crop. I usually tweet about all physical books I've received and plan to read, but acceptance does not guarantee a review.

I read for pleasure - I get a huge buzz from enjoying a book and then sharing my thoughts and all my reviews are my own thoughts and feelings.

I'm sorry but I DON'T read or review paranormal romance, erotica, religious, police procedural, espionage, CIA or political books and if that sounds a bit picky - Yeah I am choosy! I'm aware of the time authors have spent pouring their heart and soul into writing a book and when I spend my time with a book I want as great a chance as possible to be able to rave about it to the world and for it to be something which will enthrall, entertain and stay with me.

I'm happy for you to email me to offer me an advance copy of your book (or other items) for review to make sure your book is something I want to read so I will finish it and give a fair and objective review.

I am happy for the author, publisher or publicist to quote any part of my review of their book, in the ebook itself on Twitter or Social media or anywhere, it would be nice if you let me know.
