Find-us-on-Facebook-logoWe’d be delighted to hear from you over at our Facebook page where you’re welcome to comment on books, films, TV shows and anything else weird or wonderful. Please ‘like’ the page and share the details and let your friends know where to find us.

If you’d like us to review a crime / thriller / mystery / supernatural / sci-fi book then please post the details on that Facebook page and we’ll read it and review as soon as we can. Just be aware that we can review around 50 indie books each year, and we’re asked to look at three or four each week. There isn’t time to do justice to each book, and it may take many months to actually get around to reading your book and posting a review. We’ll try to include your title in our semi-regular ‘ripping reads’ round-up, which means we’ll also share its details on FB.

We do give preference to indie authors and small publishers, and prefer to read crime, thrillers, noir Nordic or otherwise, Eurocrime, hard sci-fi, urban fantasy, world crime in translation and the like, but can be tempted by modern mythology and weird things of almost any stripe. Fluffy romance and girly twee domestic dramas don’t get much of a look-in.

Feel free to let us know if your book is on promotion and we’ll definitely help spread the word. PLEASE RECIPROCATE: it’ll help us and other indie authors if you share / tweet our posts and reviews. Help to promote other authors and you’ll be contributing to a virtuous circle. Reviews are only useful if people see them, so don’t be shy in sharing and spreading the word.

For anything else, feel free to drop a mail to info at but it may take us a little while to respond…

  1. Hi Rowena,

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve just set up a site sort of like NetGalley
    where you can review free books online. It’s here to help self-published authors
    get a little more attention than they’re getting, but I hope it’ll do nice things for you too. Let’s see:
    – you can post your website in your profile so you can get some backlink love from Google
    – I’ll help tweet your reviews
    – you can make some coffee money by adding your Amazon Associates ID to the book reviews and get commissions
    on any purchases made through your reviews
    – …and it’s a new place to make a name for youself. Plus, I can imagine there’s a slight prestige in reviewing obscure books.
    Good reviewers will be loved on this site and if you’re into being loved, come check it out. If there are other benefits, things you,
    as a book blogger, are looking for, please let me know and I’ll see if I can build it into the site.
    Many thanks for taking the time to read this. The site is and you can sign up with your Twitter or FB account.
    Hope to see you on the site!

    Best regards,

    John Khoury

  3. Hello Rowena

    I am a real fan in that, I appreciate your unique and witty reviews. I know that you are probably inundated with review requests, but I’d like to offer my debut for the pile.

    The book is about Ahmed who is accused of the London terror attacks. Please follow the link for the blurb.

    If you agree to an honest review, please do not hesitate to inform me as to your preference: e-book, paperback or manuscript which I shall gladly supply.

    Thank you so much for your consideration and for your support of authors like myself.

    Kind regards.

    Toni Michelle

    • Thanks for letting me know about your novel, Toni. I’ll certainly take a look, and if it’s somethign that grabs me then I’ll gladly buy a copy for my Kindle.
      All the best,

  4. Hi Rowena,

    I would like to recommend a short-story ebook of mine. It’s called “Environmentally Friendly” and is an action-thriller. I saw on your profile that thrillers are one of the genres you read and review, so I thought you may be interested in this short story. If not, that’s also cool!

    It basically centres around a highly unstable army veteran hell-bent on waging his own personal war against Mother Nature. He is the number one target being hunted down by the police in the city of Los Angeles as he rampages through the city in an attempt to provoke such a powerful and overwhelming force as Mother Nature into a highly personal battle. Out of that entire police, only one officer has gone against the grain and become intent, almost to the point of equal obsession in helping that army veteran to do the impossible and bring Mother Nature to its knees.

    I’d be more than happy to send you a free mobi/kindle file if you wish to read and/or review it.

    Kindest Regards


  5. Hello

    My name is Robert Skuce. My latest Thriller/Crime story “Kiss of Death” will be released soon. I am currently looking for reviewers to provide an honest review in exchange for the book for free. It will be available in all e-book formats and I can send you the format you prefer. My book will be available at online retailers.
    Here is a brief overview of my book:
    Bruno Norcross is a detective who never got over letting a serial killer get away. Now that Kiss of Death has re-surfaced; he is determined to close the case. The death of another young college girl has sparked outrage in Charlie Lassitor, the police Sargent, whose daughter was killed by this very killer. Bruno feels compelled to close this case, but the details get blurred when a new name enters the list of suspects. Can Bruno catch the killer before his killing spree ends and he vanishes again? Or will Kiss of Death once again elude him?
    You can read more about it on my website or on goodreads The book is currently on pre-order set to be released March 1st, 2017. I have no preferred date to have a review up by. I am hoping to have the majority of reviews done in and around the early summer.
    If you are interested in reviewing my book, doing an author interview or just reading my book for discussion, I would love to hear from you.
    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me:
    Robert Skuce
