Book Review Requests
I am currently accepting requests, including indie and self-published books! However, I am only taking books for consideration.* That means, even if I do accept a copy of your book, I do not guarantee I will end up reading it.
*This does not apply to blog tours, author review groups, or any other situation in which a review has been expressly agreed upon.
Genres I Accept:
– Science Fiction
Within Those Genres, I Accept:
– Young adult and adult (I have no problem with sex scenes, strong language, violence, or dark themes/content)
– Regular novels and graphic novels
– All types of romantic relationships (including LGBT+)
– I do enjoy a romantic element, but it’s not required
Formats I Accept:
– mobi for ebooks
– audiobooks (I generally use Audible, but let me know if you use another site or have another way of distributing)
– for comics / graphic novels, I’ll accept PDF, but I’m more likely to accept if you have print copies because I have a head/eye problem and cannot look at computer screens too long (I live in the US)
– I love series! But you will need to provide any previous books I have not yet read.
How Soon I Post:
– I cannot give a time frame right now.
Where I Post:
– Audible if I listened through Audible and you ask me to post there
– I may or may not post a review on my blog. I’m more likely to post reviews here for books I give 4+ stars to.
– Currently I do monthly updates where I share brief thoughts on all the books I’ve read that month.
– I may also mention your book(s) in other types of posts, like recommendations based around a topic.
If I Dislike the Book:
– If I rate the book less than 3 stars, I may or may not post a review anywhere.
– If I don’t finish the book, I will not post a review.
In Your Email, Please Include:
– Description of the book
– Link to the book on Goodreads and/or Amazon
– If the book is part of a series
– What format(s) you’re offering
If you’re interested in having me review your book, email me at kristenburns.contact (at) gmail (dot) com
I can’t respond to every request, but you should hear from me within a week if I’m interested in receiving a copy!
Game Review Requests
If you have a sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal (or something in that general vicinity) game or visual novel, I review those! You can find all my gaming blog posts and reviews here to see if yours might be a good fit.
If your game is a visual novel or other text-based game, please let me know if it has accessibility with some sort of text-to-speech mode (e.g. Ren’Py self-voicing mode). I may still accept games that don’t, but it helps me to know ahead of time.
If you’d like to offer me a copy for review, email me at the address below, and I’ll respond to let you know if I’m interested!

*Please note, I do not accept demos for review, only full games.*
If you have other opportunities or offers you think would be a good fit for my blog, email me at kristenburns.contact (at) gmail (dot) com
