My name is J. David Core. You can call me Dave. I will be reviewing one new book per quarter. I can accept ebooks in either pdf or mobi formats, and I can accept trade paperbacks through the US mail. Please query first with a synopsis in the body of the email, and if I am interested in the project I will make contact about the best method for you. I will try to post my review within six to twelve weeks. I used to send a note if I was passing on a project or if the book lost my interest. I no longer do that, sorry. Please do not be discouraged by a rejection, and feel free to query again with future projects. Not every book is going to appeal to every reader or every reviewer.My review will consist of a brief synopsis, and my personal reactions to the story, writing style, character development and my overall impression. Reviews will include a cover image, a short excerpt, a picture of the author if available, and a link to the author's website, facebook page or online store. Trade paperbacks will be donated unless accompanied by a SASE.
I am not interested in non-fiction. Genres that I am interested in include:
- Sci-fi (of the hard genre — no fantasy,)
- Political intrigue,
- and Heist.
One more thing, I prefer to review self-published authors. I began this blog to help those who need the most help. This is not to say that I will not accept a submission from a publishing house, but first priority goes to indies.
