I am not fond of overly dystopian or apocalyptic stories, blood, guts and gore, and excessive foul language. I do not want to read cliffhangers.

I prefer to review struggling indie authors. If you are desperate for a review, let me know. But be warned, your book must be free of grammatical errors and typos, well-formatted, and have a sufficiently professional cover, or I will not review it.

I rate the book on the following criteria:

Is the writing style easy to read and appealing?
Is the plot well-crafted and free of holes or gimmicks?
Are the characters well-rounded and emotionally engaging?
Does the story move along without bogging down?
Does the story come to a satisfying conclusion?
Did I like the book?

5 Stars Book met all the above criteria. I thoroughly enjoyed it - couldn't put it down - want to read more.
4 Stars Book met all the above criteria. I liked it.
3 Stars Book may be lacking in some of the above criteria, but it is still worth reading.
2 Stars Book lacks some of the above criteria and doesn't hold my interest - I abandoned it partway through.
1 Star Book is obviously lacking in the above criteria. I didn't make it past the first few pages.
NOTE I will not post 1 and 2 star reviews. I will tell the author why I abandoned the book..

I will post the reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barns and Noble. I also post the reviews on the SciFiOne and Romana Drew websites and put links to those reviews on several Facebook groups, Twitter, and Instagram.

The length of the review will depend upon what I want to say about the book. I will not reveal significant spoilers.

If you want to request a review, email me at romanadrew1@gmail.com.

Available Formats available - I accept mobi, epub, PDF, and hard copies.

DO NOT attach any files. Unsolicited emails with attachments will be deleted unopened. If I want to review the book, I will request a file.

I will respond to all requests, but it may take a week or two to get to yours. Do not send repeat emails.

My time is limited. I cannot review every request. If I choose not to review your book, please don't take it personally. Feel free to submit another book in the future. Occasionally, I pass a book along to a friend who also reviews books.

I only review books that I have purchased or have been gifted to me by the author. I do not receive any compensation for these reviews. All opinions are mine and are not influenced by the way I acquired the book. I will not change or remove a review.

I wish you all the best in your writing career.
