Review Policy & Contact

Updated Spring 2020

For all requests and enquiries, please send me an e-mail at 
stephforster@live.co.uk
Thank you.

--------------------------------
I am only able to accept hard-copies (hardbacks or paperbacks) at this time!
Whilst I appreciate the thought, please do not contact me if you are unable provide a hard copy of your book as I simply will not be able to review it.
--------------------------------

Thank you for reading my review policy and considering me to review your book, I really appreciate it. Whether your books are traditionally or self published, I'm always honoured when personally asked to review a book.

The easiest way for you to request a review from me is by emailing me at stephforster@live.co.uk

I am located in the United Kingdom, so wherever you are, please ensure that you are able to ship your book to me.

I will now consider both fiction and non-fiction books for review. I especially enjoy any books regarding mental health and crime  and have a particular interest in both fiction and non-fiction books about both World War One and Two, especially history regarding the Holocaust

Unfortunately, I can not books that belong to a series (out of order). If your book belongs to a series, please check that I have read the previous books in the series or provide the previous books. You can discover this by visiting my Goodreads or by e-mailing me.

When I agree to read your book, I will guarantee to review it. However, I can not always guarantee to review the book within a certain time-period due to the amount of requests that I have. If it is necessary to have the book reviewed before a certain date, please enquire about this first. If I am reviewing an Advanced Review Copy (ARC), it will be up to you when the review will be posted (i.e. before or after release) if I read the book before general release. 

My review will include a synopsis (via Goodreads) and book details such as the publisher credits, release date and genre(s). I will give your book a star rating, ranging from 1-5. I will always give a honest, but fair, review for the books that I read. My reviews cover my thoughts and feelings on the book and usually include comments on the plot, characters, setting, realism of the story and more. You can check out examples of my reviews by looking through the A-Z list of my reviews [here]. 

As well as on this blog, my reviews will always be posted on Goodreads, where I currently have hundreds of friends and followers. I am an active member of Goodreads, using it every week and gaining a steady amount of likes and comments on my reviews. I am in the list of the top 100 reviewers in the UK and have retained that position for several years. I have reviewed over 400 books on the site.

I can also post my reviews on Waterstones, Amazon and The Book Depository - if you would like the review to be posted on these sites or elsewhere, please feel free to enquire.

This blog and my reviews are promoted through my Twitter account which has over 1,000 followers and my Facebook page and sometimes on Tumblr, where I have over 3,000 followers. I am very active on social networking sites and continuously looking to gain more followers.
