Review policy.

I read and review novels, mainly by female authors. I love what has recently been termed as "Grip-lit" tense, twisty, psychological chillers, and Domestic Noir thrillers. I also enjoy quality historical fiction and literary fiction.

I publish my reviews on my blog and Goodreads and regularly post them on Amazon uk where I'm in the top 500 reviewers, as well as having an active Twitter account @Beadyjan with over 1,000 followers. I enjoy interacting with folk 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 Tweet enthusiastically about proofs and arc's I receive, usually with accompanying photos.

If I accept a book for review this means it will be added to my TBR (to be reviewed) shelf, but I can't guarantee to review each and every one. I usually tweet about 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 do it for fun and for free.

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 book itself, on their website, or Social media, as long as I am credited and notified.
