Review Policy

Nightcap Books is not currently accepting books for review.

I primarily accept requests from authors and publishers that I have previously worked with.

What I review:
- thrillers
- crime fiction
- cozy mysteries
- contemporary
- young adult

What I occasionally review:
- children's
- middle grade
- graphic novels
- science fiction
- fantasy
- horror
- women's fiction
- historical fiction

What I don't review:
- nonfiction
- audiobooks
- poetry

When considering books to review, I look at the title, genre, blurb, and cover... yes, I judge books by their covers.

I accept both print and ebooks for review. I read ebooks on a Kindle, so please send books in a format that is compatible (mobi or pdf).

I will post a review on Goodreads, Amazon, and my blog. I promote books on Twitter and Instagram, but I don't include all reviews on those those social media sites.

I do not promise a positive review. I will review the book honestly, and sometimes that results in a negative review.

Due to my current reading schedule, it takes me 4-6 weeks to review a book from the time I receive it. For books not yet published, I will try my best to post a review on or before the publish date.

I only post reviews for books I've read. I don't participate in blog tours or post author interviews, book excerpts, or giveaways.
