I’m starting to get emails from authors requesting reviews. I keep on reading that authors must read as much as they write, and so I’ve said yes to a few requests. So many authors write about how they never read anymore as they’re too busy writing. However, if nobody reads at all because they’re all too busy with their job or hobby, then what’s the point of writing books in the first place?
I’ve always enjoyed reading, but to be honest, only certain genres appeal to me. If you’ve got a fantasy or Sci-fi book, horror story, erotic or vampire novel or anything based in the future where characters are ‘shifters’ and have other-wordly names, then I’m afraid I’m not the reviewer for you. Also unfortunately I’m not too keen on detective novels/mysteries but some of these do appeal, usually the ones written by British authors (I don’t understand some of the American vernacular).
I like to read autobiographies, women’s fiction family dramas, contemporary romances and witty novels, coming-of-age stories, and psychological suspense/thrillers. If your book fits the bill then please send me an email (details below) and I will consider adding it to my TBR list. All I ask in return is that you sign up to my mailing list. The subscription form should automatically pop up on this WordPress blog – please let me know if it doesn’t.
So… Stevie is going to read more. Apart from blogs, I’m all written out at the moment and what with going back to work as well, I feel that I’ve written enough to be getting on with. I’ve got it all out of my system, and when the inspiration strikes, then I’ll write another novel. Until then I’m not going to worry about it. I’m going to type my clinic letters 2 days per week, write my blogs when I think of a subject, and sit on my decking when I can and read your lovely books on my Kindle!
Yes, I only want copies sent direct to my Kindle, but first I have to authorise your email address on my Amazon account before you can send it. So send me a request and details of your book to firstname.lastname@example.org (please put Review Request in the subject box), sign up to my mailing list if you’d be so kind, and we’ll take it from there. When I’ve got enough books to be getting on with, I’ll stop taking on any more until I’ve read them.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Regards, Stevie. x
