Book Spotlight Guidelines

I no longer accept review requests, so please don't ask.

If you are an author and would like to have your fantasy, horror, paranormal or sci-fi book (I will also consider poetry collections, and crime or spy thrillers) spotlighted on this blog, please follow these guidelines:
  • Put the words "book spotlight" in the subject line and the name of this blog in the body of the email.
  • Submit a short book synopsis/blurb, the book's genre, a jpg or gif photo of your book cover, a short author bio (written in the third person) and an author photo. Note: please try and keep your photo files on the medium to small size. 
  • Please put the name of your book, your bio and book synopsis in either the body of the email or a Word .doc, .rtf or .txt attachment (please, no other files). Attach your photos separately to the email. Do not put them in the .doc, .rtf or .txt file.
  • Do not send me a PDF attachment unless you have ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER OPTION OR ARE UNDER THREAT OF DEATH.
  • Add links to where your book can be found.
  • If you have a book trailer, you can include the video embed code or the link.
  • If you wish to send an excerpt to be added to the spotlight, that's fine, but please make it short; around 500 words or so is ideal. 
  • Do not send me your book, review blurbs or any other promotional files.
You can contact me at:

Please Note: I don't feature giveaways, unless you wish to include them within the book spotlight.

If you have a book you would like spotlight in a genre not listed above, I do spotlight other types of books at my secondary blog (please check out the guidelines there before emailing):
