Review Policy

Thanks for stopping by here at A Storied Soul! I’m happy to have you. I accept queries for possible book reviews. If you are an agent, publisher, publicist, or author, and would like to submit a query for me to possibly review your book, please read the following before filling out the contact form below:

The genres I review:

  • Literary Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Short Stories
  • Narrative Nonfiction
  • Young Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy/Dystopia
  • Science Fiction & Fantasy
  • Cultural Fiction
  • Crime/Thriller

The genres I DO NOT review:

  • Westerns
  • Romance
  • Erotica
  • New Adult
  • Religious Fiction
  • Religious Nonfiction
  • Political Nonfiction
  • Self-help
  • Chick-lit

I only accept queries of book reviews from the big house publishers (Random House, Penguin, Hyperion, Bloomsbury, etc) or small and indie publishing houses. I do not accept self-published works/vanity presses (these include platforms including but not limited to CreateSpace, Smashwords, Wattpad, etc).

Please be aware that sending me a query or a book does not come with a guarantee that I will post a review of it on this website. I try to offer a review for every book I read, but sometimes that isn’t possible, for many reasons. So, I do not promise to do so.

When sending me a book for review, if your query is accepted, I do not guarantee a favorable review. I review books and offer opinions on them honestly, which will reflect whether or not I liked it and why. I will always be fair, mature, and constructive in my reviews and opinions.

If you believe that your book will interest me (see my reviews list for past reviews to see what I generally read), and if it meets my guidelines above, or if you have any questions about my review policy, you are welcome to fill out and submit the contact form below. I do not promise to reply to your query as I usually only respond if I am interested in your book, it fits my policy, and I plan to [possibly] review it.
