Book Review Policy

To authors/ publishers/ publicists/ and anyone else
...and a little wine... features book reviews on literary fiction, graphic novels and sports writing, though I'm willing to consider any title. I accept galleys and books for review at my discretion.

Please be aware that if you are submitting a book for consideration and my acceptance of a review copy is not a promise a) that I will review the book or b) that my review will be positive.

Format: I do not have an e-reader at this time. I am happy to wait for finished copies of a book, but will also accept ARCs. I love audiobooks, either on CD or as electronic files. I'm not picky about freshly published books, so I'm happy to review backlisted titles if they're available.

Coverage: If I do not finish a book I have accepted for review, I reserve the right to blog about my reasons for not finishing a book. I do not aim to, nor enjoy, writing negative reviews, but I enjoy the exploration of why certain books affect us as readers. That said, I would rather not address a book that wasn't for me than to write about it.

Pitches/Queries: I am selective in my acceptance of galleys and review copies, and I am not able to respond to every request. If you don’t hear from me regarding a specific title, please feel free to contact me again in the future. As my schedule allows, I also enjoy featuring author interviews, guest posts, and other creative content that gives my readers a unique look at a book, author, or aspect of publishing.

To get in touch with me regarding reviews, recommendations, questions, or anything else, please email me through my contact form. If you are promoting a book, please include the title, author, a synopsis, and a link to the publisher and/or author website.

I look forward to hearing from you.
