Authors and Publishers

If you would like to send me a book to review, then I would love to read it.  I try to ensure that my reviews are always constructive, comprehensive and fair, even if they might be critical; after all, I have spent a fair part of my adult life so far painstakingly researching and writing lengthy works in order to have other people judge and criticse them.  However, while I will always try to be nice, I am not prepared to be dishonest: if I do not like your book I will say so and I will say why.

As a rule, my reading is ecclectic and I will try anything once.  The only genre that I personally loathe is paranormal romance, largely because I have yet to read one which isn’t insipid, poorly written or thinly disguised softcore porn.  By all means, you are free to attempt to change my mind, but be warned that these books are not my cup of tea (and I’m very particular about tea) so it will not be an easy task.
