We are a loose collective of fantasy-loving authors and readers who love staying on top of (and digging way back into) the changing genre of fantasy. We make no money from affiliate links, accept no sponsorship from publishers or authors, and guarantee the opinions are our honest take on the book (though these can vary from reviewer to reviewer!). We don't normally post reviews of books we don't like, though we might post a stub of why we stopped reading. Just because we didn't like it doesn't mean someone else won't, and it's much more fun to talk about books we loved than ones that felt like a waste of our reading hours.
Awesome. We want you here--we're always open to new authors, especially indie authors (you know, the ones likely to be contacting us asking for reviews). First thing is to make sure you fit these guidelines:
1) Somewhere in the fantasy genre (we skew towards epic and away from urban, but read it all)
2) Released in the last year, preferably last six months (yes, we're serious about the 'new' part)(and no, we don't read unpublished things, in case you never get there. As long as you're on Amazon we're good.)
3) Not a spammer--that is, you've actually looked at the site, actually read the guidelines, etc. The fact that you're reading this is a good sign.
4) Standalones or first in a series--it's hard to give a fair review to book seven when you haven't read books one through six.
If that all sounds kosher, send us a blurb, sample, download link or manuscript, at authorlevijacobs at gmail.com
The process from there? We read your blurb, sample, or first few pages. If it sounds good, we'll keep reading. If it is good in all the particular ways we love, we'll read the whole thing and put a review up. If we don't love it, we won't post a review.
