Review Policy

Nightcap Books is currently accepting books for review.

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

What I review:
– crime fiction
– cozy mysteries
– thrillers
– psychological suspense

What I occasionally review:
– children’s
– middle grade
– young adult
– graphic novels
– horror
– science fiction
– fantasy
– contemporary
– 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 try to post a review the week of publication.

I only post reviews for books I’ve read. I don’t post guest reviews.
