Review Policy

I am not currently accepting review requests. 

I only accept requests for contemporary fiction and historical fiction (but please don’t send me requests for historical romances).

I do not accept review requests for Romance, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal fiction, or Chick-lit. Please don’t send me requests for these, they just get deleted.

I will very occasionally accept crime fiction and YA requests.

If I have read something by an author before I will look at review requests for other books by them, but cannot guarantee to accept.

If you would like me to review your book please send me an e-mail at Please include a synopsis in your e-mail and be prepared to send me either a hardcopy or kindle copy of the book you would like me to review. You can also find me on netgalley and edelweiss

Unfortunately I can no longer guarantee that your book will be the next I read as my pile of review books is constantly being added to, however if you have a release date approaching or other reason you would like a review by a certain date I will take this into account.

You can find me on Goodreads, , Twitter, Facebook, AmazonBookmooch, tumblr and Bookcrossing. I will not however accept requests sent through these sites.

    How Bible Prophecy Gives Us Perspective
    by Pastor Greg Laurie

    “God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the time is near.”
    —Revelation 1:3

    Have you ever wondered what will happen in the future? Have you ever wished you could see what will take place? In some ways, I’m glad I don’t know the future. God knows the future, I know Him, and that’s enough.

    The book of Revelation, however, gives us a glimpse into the future. In fact, the Bible says there’s a special blessing promised to those who hear and keep the words of this book (see Revelation 1:3).

    Revelation means “the unveiling,” because it is not God’s desire to conceal but to reveal. And one thing I’ve learned from studying this great book is that God has a plan, and everything is right on schedule. I’ve also discovered that the best is yet to come, and as followers of Jesus Christ, we win in the end.

    When we study Revelation, and Bible prophecy in general, we gain perspective. When we learn about the future, it motivates us to live righteously in the present. And how we view the future is important. If we believe that Jesus could return at any moment, it will affect the way that we live.

    For instance, when you were a child and did something wrong, maybe your mother said, “Just wait until your father gets home!” Did you look forward to his arrival?

    No, you didn’t. When you heard his car pull into the driveway and knew he was walking up to the door, you were afraid.

    On the other hand, if you were good and didn’t get into trouble that day, you could hardly wait until your father got home.

    Now let’s apply that to the Lord’s return. If we’re right with God, then we’re looking forward to it. But if we’ve disobeyed Him, then maybe we’re dreading it.

    Our belief in the imminent return of Jesus has an effect on us and on the way we live.
