Review Policy

I am open to accepting books for review from publishers, publicists and authors.I will only accept those books that I think I will enjoy reading, although the range of genres I enjoy is relatively wide. I am very picky about self-published books; nine times out of ten, I won’t read them. Friends and people whose work I’m familiar with already are pretty much the only exceptions to the no-self-published-books rule.

My reviews will always reflect my honest opinions. In the event that I accept your book for review on my website, I will give my honest thoughts in my review, even if that means saying that I did not enjoy your book. I do try to find something good in every book so even if I don’t enjoy a book I will point what works well and what didn’t for me.

I read a lot of books and this is a personal project in addition to my full-time non-reading-related  job, so I cannot guarantee I will read and respond to your book as soon as I receive it. However, I will do my best to read it and review it as close to the release date as possible, but there are no guarantees. If you have a specific time frame in which you would like your book reviewed, the sooner you contact me before the date you’d like it reviewed, the better.

If you’re interested in sending me your book for review, please feel free to use the Suggest A Book page or email me at books@geoffwhaley.com. Your email should include a summary of the book, the release date, and any links that may give me further information about the book or the author.

I cannot guarantee a response to every email, but please note if I decide that the particular book you’re contacting me about isn’t something that I would enjoy reading, or if you don’t hear from me, please don’t let that deter you from contacting me about other books in the future.
