Official Review Request Guidlines

As much as I'd like to help all of you, I cannot.  Apologies if any of the below seems harsh.  Reading time is precious and sifting through review requests cuts into my reading time.

Here is what I'm NOT looking for:
  • The first book in an epic fantasy series
  • Any book after the first book in an epic fantasy series
  • Zombies
  • Vampires
  • Young Adult
  • Books featuring an ex-government agent, soldier, or hitman
  • Conspiracy thrillers ala the DaVinci Code or Brad Thor's crap
  • urban fantasy/paranormal romance
  • short story collections
  • historical fiction
  • steampunk that is really fantasy or paranormal romance with gears and goggles
  • literary fiction full of navel gazing that nothing actually happens in 
  • Thrillers with the word Gone, Girl, and/or Train in the title.
  • Books over 500 pages in length
I guess you could say I'm looking for something different, not the same product in a different wrapper.  I can find plenty of those on my own.

I'm only interested in the below-mentioned genres at this time.  Originality scores big points with me, particularly with science fiction and fantasy.  If you can't be bothered to use correct grammar when you send me your request, guess what happens.

Note to self-published authors: EDIT YOUR SHIT!  

Fill out the form and I'll get back to you within 24 hours if I'm interested.  Because of volume, I DO NOT LOOK AT REVIEW REQUESTS THAT DO NOT COME THROUGH THE FORM.  I also do not take ARCs that are weirdly formatted.  Specifically, if your eARC has headers in the middle of the page or your print ARC looks like you've never read a physical book before, I'll chuck them unread.
