Edit 4/22/13: I am no longer accepting review copies. That does not mean I don’t want to hear about your book. If you have something you think may appeal to me as a potential discussion on this site, drop me an e-mail and tell me about it. I can’t guarantee that I will read anything, but if it sounds up my alley, I will buy a copy and read it and discuss it at my own pace.
The only exception are authors from the New Bizarro Author’s Series from Eraserhead Press. Don’t send me copies of your books – just let me know about them and I will buy them myself. I will, however, read NBAS books in a timely manner, given the nature of series.
So keep me in the loop! I still want to hear from you authors with weird books and I want to spend my own money on them so as to be able to give the most honest review that I can. All books sent before this date will be still be reviewed though I can give no guarantees on when that will happen.
I am honored so many writers trusted this site with their works. It is truly humbling.
Edit 2-6-13: I am accepting review copies again.
The short answer is yes, I will. I have my mailing address on my contact page and my e-mail address is there as well – never hurts to send me a message letting me know to expect a book. I can also accept PDFs and MOBI formats via e-mail. If you need to gift me a Kindle copy, my Kindle address is anitadalton_92@Kindle.com. Again, it is a good thing to let me know you are sending me a review copy via Kindle or I may not accept the gift. I have a tendency to read paper books sooner than e-books but it’s expensive for new authors at small presses to send me paper books so don’t use your money on a paper copy if you have an e-copy. Even if it takes me a bit longer, I will still read your e-book.
Keep these more “long answer” elements in mind:
1) Though my site is likely riddled with errors, I am a pedant where grammar and usage in books are concerned. If you are considering sending me a book that is not cleanly edited yet, don’t! I will comment on the editing even if you ask me not to. There is a tradition that one should not take mistakes in advance reader copies too seriously, but in the age of electronic publishing, it has become all too tempting to send out less then polished work. I am not a person who will cut you slack if you send me work with a lot of errors.
2) If I tell you I will read and discuss your book, I will. It may take me longer than you would like (it will take me longer than you would like), but I always read what I say I will read. The only exception to this is if there is something so egregious about your book that my conscience would bother me if I gave it as bad a review it deserves. This has only happened once, and I can’t see it happening often, but keep it in mind.
3) I am terrible about online communication. I really suck at returning e-mails in a timely manner. So if you have to nag, I understand it. Just know I am that Weird Sort of Adult Who Is Bad About Communications. If you think it takes me a long time to return e-mails, just be glad you aren’t trying to get me on the phone.
4) I crosspost reviews and links on Goodreads, LibraryThing, Twitter, Facebook, and my LiveJournal. I will never place reviews on Amazon. I find Amazon reviews to be a hive of dumb and villainy. I have left one Amazon review and it ended up with me being e-stalked in an amusing though irritating manner by a weirdo with a Black Dahlia fixation. So you can ask me to review your book on Amazon but I will never do it.
