Random Musings' Book Reviews

Whether you are an established author or releasing your first book; published professionally or independently; hardcover, paperback, or ebook - I'd love to read your book and share my opinion.

I offer Reviews, Spotlights, Cover Release Announcements, Interviews, and Guest Posts to Authors of (virtually) all genres and publication sources. 

All reviews are posted (on Tuesdays and Fridays - Only, as of 01/01/2013) to my blogAmazonGoodreads,Shelfari, and (starting 01/14/2013) Book Blogs. All I ask, in return:

  • Review my policies: Ad & Review Policies before submitting your book;
  • I do not review erotica or accept guest posts containing 'questionable' topics or language; Random Musings is a family-friendly blog, attached to my personal business.
  • You must provide a review copy of your book: print or Kindle-compatible ebook; I do not charge for reviews, please don't 'charge' me to review your book.
  • Include any media: book cover, purchase links, author bio, etc. which you would like included with the review. I can hunt them down, but would prefer to receive them from you.
  • Review time is, currently, 3 months from receipt of book.  If you are on a tight schedule - let me know immediately; I can (probably) rearrange my schedule to accommodate a rush review. (April & May 2013 are currently closed; June 2013 is tight.)
  • If your book has not been carefully and thoroughly edited (filled with typos and grammatical errors) - before posting an extremely negative review, I will allow you one (1) opportunity to withdraw the review request or update the book.

 

If you are interested in submitting your book for review, or have questions, please contact me at Gmail.com. Include 'Review Request' in the subject of the email.

Like for Like is Useless, Link for Link is Priceless

In Google's eyes at least, follow for follow and like for like carry almost no weight. However, every site that links back to your page lends your site more weight, thats SEO. Blogrolls that link back to your page and vice versa, are what the Google bots pay attention to. Each blog that links to yours becomes part of a web that will push you up in page ranking on Google and increase your traffic.So, let's do it! If you think my website (a show of…See More

Hi Julie, my name is Larry Rodness and I am inquiring about receiving a review on my newest YA novel entitled, "Perverse", published by Itoh Press in both print and electronic formats. Synopsis as follows:

19 year old Emylene Stipe is a 2nd generation Goth who, like every teenage girl, is trying to find her place in the world. One night she comes upon an old painting in an antique store and is compelled to purchase it. When she brings it home an image of a young woman appears in the sketch and then magically materializes in her apartment. Emylene nick-names her 'Poinsettia' and they soon become fast friends. But Poinsettia has an ulterior motive for her sudden and strange intrusion into her host's life which causes Emylene to question her whole belief system.
If there is interest I can forward an E Pub or PDF.

Hi Julie, 

I am most often found on Facebook, so if you are on there I would love to connect. I will be using this  site more though as I am a Social Media PR Agent in addition to blogger and author. I do run a social media tour group, Around the Universe Social Media Tours and I am always looking for more hosts willing to provide open & honest reviews. 
Let me know if you are interested. No pressure. 

Peace, 
Penelope Anne
