  1. Hi Melissa! So pleased to find this blog! I am a Greek and my debut novel is a fantasy set in Athens, an adventure of Greek myths and time travel. I will email you shortly to request a review. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration 🙂

    Hi Melissa,
    What email could I send a review pitch in on? Thanks in advance.

  3. Dear Melissa,

    Would you be prepared to read and review my latest book, ‘All Quiet on the Midwestern Plains; a Tale of Deception, Betrayal and Vindication’?

    It falls in the category of literary fiction, and describes academic skulduggery, romance, the activities of the American Nazi party and the vagaries of the Nebraska climate as all these affect a visiting Israeli academic and his family.

    The ebook is available for free download on 1 and 2 May. If you prefer, I can send you a PDF of the book, or even the paperback version, if you let me have your address.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Dorothea Shefer-Vanson

    Good morning, Melissa, I hope all is well… I came across your blog website online while searching for poetry book reviewers… Are you currently doing any reviews right now? Please let me know at your best convenience. Thank you kindly.

  6. Am I correct in understanding that you are not taking books for review at this time?

  7. Hello. By any chance, have you changed your position about not taking any books for review?
