Review Policy 

Currently, I'm accepting books on an individual basis. Had a huge reading slump and slowly getting back into the groove. I tend to avoid non-fiction as I find those are harder to get into. 

I love fiction just about anything as long as it captures my attention. 
I don't charge for my reviews. I write open honest reviews. 

Thank you for understanding

  1. Hi Mandy,

    If you are available to consider it, I would like to request a review of my new science fiction novel 'Lifeliners'.

    When everybody is against them, it is tough being a lifeliner, as Nash Bannon found out. Lifeliners are ordinary people…almost.

    They can draw energy from another person; they live longer and are smarter. Scientists claim that Western high-pressure living and growing sterility in developed countries has triggered the rise of lifeliners, and homo sapiens will replaced by homo renata within ten generations. So, what’s not to like about lifeliners? Protest marches by extremist groups, riots, attacks against lifeliners, repressive laws enacted by governments everywhere, were portents of a dark future. Young, successful, Nash Bannon did not like what was going on, but he thought he had the world at his feet and life in Australia was good, provided no one found out he was a lifeliner.

    A chance encounter with Cariana during a lunchbreak develops into something he considered important. The Australian government calls a snap election, and Nash stands as a Senate candidate on the Lifeliner Party ticket. Unless lifeliners rise up and fight for their rights, they can expect sterilization, incarceration, and possible extermination as democracies everywhere turn into autocracies. To survive, the Lifeliner Party must employ the same dirty tricks the government used against them, but they were not prepared for what awaited them.

    The book is available in PDF and Mobi.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi, Mandy, I've got a pitch here for you:
    I’ve read your guidelines and abide and honor your requirements. I know you must be swamped, and I’d like to just take the time to thank you for your unselfish service and dedication to us writers. I always ask first.

    Well, what makes this tome standout? I think my book Screamcatcher: Web World is unique in that I have never seen a dream catcher used as a prop or device in the plot or theme of a book on the Internet. My book has shades of Indian lore in it, and I think the characters are diverse and well-drawn. It has a slow-burn sweet romance. I see this as a mash-up between (a serious) Ghostbusters and The Hunger Games. I've included the blurb in this email for your perusal. For a deeper probe, you can click on Christy's website (included) in the sig line below. I hope you like this idea.

    Most Kindly Yours,

    Christy Breedlove (pen name)
