NOTE: I'm rejecting way more books than I'm reading these days. I'm a huge stickler on somewhat decent writing. If I find a crap-load of mistakes in your first few chapters I simply quit reading.
EVEN EASIER: I am still publishing guest posts from any and all indie authors. So if you have written a METAPHYSICAL HORROR book on the theme of vampires, werewolves or zombies and want to write a unique article for the Vampire Review readership - then, please, absolutely send me your guest blurb and I will do my best to publish it.
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR GUEST POSTS AND BOOK REVIEWS:
#1. Include any links to where your novel is available for purchase. Also include links to your blog - where you are promoting your work. Also feel encouraged to publish links from your web pages back to your guest post here, when it appears here on Vampire Review.
#2. YOUR BOOK MUST BE FOR SALE (not offered for free). While reviewers traditionally expect a free copy of your eBook, because you're gaining free marketing exposure, those readers can peruse FREE books at no risk to them. They don't need my review to save them money.
#3. My name is Tami. I'm a living and breathing person. Please do NOT send inquiries to me and address me as "Dear Reviewer." (I hate that and will instantly reject your email.) My email address is SunTigerMOJO@gmail.com.
#4. I REVIEW VAMPIRE NOVELS, paranormal horror and dark fiction ONLY. Please don't query me about a new Barbie themed romance work and expect me to wanna read it.
Many thanks. I look forward to working with you. OH! If you're a reviewer yourself ... this blogger is also an author: of Ravena & The Resurrected. Talk to me. Let's see if we might be able to reciprocate with promotional favors!
NOTE TO AUTHORS SEEKING REVIEW:
I prefer NOT to read erotica but will consider such if the book has a very strong plot and romance doesn't suffocate the theme. Hate porn, bestiality, defecation, pedophilia, violent sex or rape scenes. So please don't send your book to me if it includes such content.
VAMPIRE REVIEW DOES NOT CHARGE FOR PROVIDING BOOK REVIEWS OR FOR HOSTING AUTHOR TOURS:
