If you are interested in having your book reviewed please read this page for more info and contact me at: ODbookreviews (at) gmail (dot) com. You may also e-mail me for guest posts etc. View promotional options here.
Our Reading queue is currently very long (years) with a shorter short-list (months).
- I can not guarantee that I will review the book.
- I cannot promise a positive review in exchange for a review copy.
- When reviewing books I try not to rate based on personal feelings and instead analyze the good and bad features of the book. For example I wont knock off a star for gore just because I don’t like gore, but I will knock off some rating for a weak plot or poor character development.
- I do not review books I haven’t fully read but I also do not review every book that I have fully read.
- I don’t knock off rating for minor spelling and grammar issues only frequent ones.
- We accept the following formats: kindle, e-books, .mobi, .epub, paperbacks and hardbacks. I can accept PDFs but I do not prefer them because they don’t display as well on my device.
- Signed physical copies get bumped to the shortlist. E-mail me for O’s/D’s mailing address and if you include a digital copy of the book in the e-mail I can jump on it quicker. Authors who go this extra mile while submitting their book get priority reading. We are creating a wallpaper photo of all the signed books we have received. (Current draft photo at the bottom of the blog. It will be updated.)
- I will never share or reproduce your book. It will only be downloaded onto O’s and D’s devices.
- I receive a lot of submissions so you may have to wait a while for your review. You may experience a long wait on the e-mail response as well (sorry).
If you would like me to host a giveaway contest for your book feel free to e-mail me. I do month-long giveaway contests with lots of coverage for your book(s) and sites. I use rafflecopter and participants gain entries by visiting/following your various sites and social media. Contact me to be included in our next giveaway contest!
