    My name is Nicole Gsell and I am the illustrator and book designed for “The Tremendous Pagoda Tree of Martha’s Vineyard”. We have our book up on Net Galley and are looking for reviews. I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing the book for us.

    Please let me know if you are interested, and check out the book on Net Galley here: bit/ly/pagodatree.

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Nicole!
      Thanks for contacting me!
      I am a member of Net Galley… so I will for sure go and take a look at your book right now and determine if it would be something I’d be interested in reading and reviewing.

    • A children’s book! Perfect!
      Yes – I will go download it right now.

    • I finished and posted my review…
      I notice that you have a Facebook page for this book too.
      I would love to post a link to my review on Facebook but due to my privacy concerns, I am unable to do that myself. If you wish to post a link though… please feel free to do so!
      I adored your illustrations – simply fantastic!

  2. Good Morning,

    My name is Jackie (Jacqueline Lorraine Conwell), and I’m the author of a book I published in late 2012 titled “Jax & Marbles”. It can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million. I was wondering if you’d review my book if it looked like one you’d be interested in reading.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Have a great day,

    • Hi Jackie!
      Thanks for considering me to review your book.
      I’m going to have to pass though… my TBR pile is getting out of control right now!
      I don’t want to over-commit myself and end up disappointing.
      I did take a peek on Amazon and read the synopsis.
      Just the title – Jax & Marbles – lured me there!
      Like the cover too!

    Hi Jackie,
    I am the author of the novel Beauty Rising and since its release, it has garnered a lot of positive reviews (4.5 stars – 60 reviews). It’s a cross-cultural read of contemporary/literary fiction, and I would like to offer you a copy to review. You can find it on Kindle or many other retailers via paperback. I’ve included the novel’s pitch below. Thanks for your consideration.


    “Beauty Rising” Pitch:
    “My heart sank. I dumped my father’s ashes in the heart of communist Vietnam – over a thousand miles from the death of his comrades – over a thousand miles from the smile of that girl. How could I have been so stupid?”

    Only the bumbling, overweight, thirtyish, stay-at-home Martin Kinney could have mistakenly flubbed his dying father’s request with such gusto. This thousand mile mistake awakens the ghosts of long-held family secrets and puts Martin on a fateful course with an unlikely romantic interest – a young, beautiful, yet troubled Vietnamese woman named My Phuong.

    With its cross-cultural setting and unlikely romance, the 61,000 word novel Beauty Rising creates a powerful, unique voice in today’s literature. In a swift-moving, dialogue-driven prose which is funny, honest, tragic and unpredictable, Beauty Rising explores the depths of culture, family, and love as the Vietnam War, a generation removed, continues to hang on the periphery of society, cursing families and causing destruction.

    • Hi Jackie,
      Your book sounds super interesting but at the moment I am not accepting any new books to review.
      If my life slows down a bit… I hope I can contact you and see if you’d like me to review for you sometime in the future?
      Thanks for considering me!

    Hi, my name is Yuki Maki. I recently published my first ageplay centric book called “Adventures of Penny Pan,” now available for Amazon Kindle. It is the first in a series of revamped fairytales with an ageplay twist. I’d love to have you review it, but it seems like you might have a full plate at the moment?

    I’d love to have you review it when you have a little more extra time on your hands.

  7. Hi! I would love if you had a chance to review my book, and I can provide you with a physical ARC copy. Here is a link to my book on Goodreads:

    Summary: When divorced single-mom Carrie Lucas moved to Seattle she knew it was time to start living life on her own terms, and stop playing by the rules of everyone else. While exploring her new city she falls for Sayid, a charismatic lawyer who has life figured out. But one traumatic night, Carrie discovers evil doesn’t come in the package she expected. Afterwards, she struggles to make sense of what’s real and understand ultimately who is at fault for the tragedy that unraveled her life.

    In a gripping and powerful narrative, Carrie tells the true story of how falling for the wrong person can cause so much more than heartbreak. Where Fault Lies is a chilling exploration of memory through trauma, trust in humanity, and a captivating story of strength and survival that appeals to the heart of fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, and men and women alike.

    Let me know if you’d be interested in review my book, and contact me to let me know how I can send you a copy.
    Thank you!

    I am looking to organize a blog tour from September 21 – October 4. I was hoping you could participate. If those dates don’t work for you, I would love for you to review my book any time!

    My memoir, Who Am I? How My Daughter Taught Me to Let Go and Live Again, was released on August 2, 2014. My book is about my journey into post-partum depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, stays in the psych ward, divorce, domestic violence, law school, how I managed to graduate from law school and a beautiful little girl who emerged from all of this chaos. There are two extremely important messages I would like to get across:

    One: Postpartum Depression still has a negative stigma attached to it. Women shouldn’t be afraid to seek treatment if they feel something is wrong.

    Two: Emotional abuse is a form of domestic violence and is not to be taken lightly. It took 10 strangers in a group therapy session in the hospital psych ward to tell me that I was in an emotionally abusive marriage and that I needed to get out for the sake of my daughter.

    I am looking for hosts to review my book, feature an author interview or just copy and paste my media kit. Please let me know if you are interested by replying to this e-mail. I REALLY appreciate this!

    • Hi Meg. Yes – I would be interested. Especially since I also suffered with post-partum depression and had been involved in an emotionally abusive marriage.
      I only review paperback (or hardback) copies of books. No E-books, as I have a difficult time reading from a computer screen for any length of time.
      Please let me know if that is an available option.
      Thanks for thinking of me!

  9. Hi Jackie,

    My name is Gilbert Ohanian, the author of “Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied.” This book is about my experiences being bullied as a child and now most recently my son. More importantly, it sheds light on what bullying is and how to combat the crisis. If you think you might be interested in reading it and perhaps providing a review on Amazon, I would greatly appreciate it and I will send you a complimentary copy if you’ll respond with your mailing address. There is no obligation of course. I am also sending you a link to Readers’ Favorite for your review and consideration. I can also send you the book in these formats, pdf, epub, and Mobi. Thanks.
