Welcome to our tiny corner of the world. Here you will find brief reviews and opinions on books we read. You will also find interviews with authors to gain insight into the mind behind the works. Enjoy your time here and hopefully you’ll find a new treasure.
We get a bit of help reading and reviewing certain books. Who best to tell you if a book geared towards children is actually interesting to a child’s mind, but a child?
Where do we get these books? A variety of places including publishers, authors, publicists, Goodreads and NetGalley. We are never compensated in any way in return for an honest review. These are opinions freely given. In accordance with FCC guidelines: Every post should include a line stating we received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, or that we own the book, but being human we sometimes forget to include that line with the review.
Every review is our intellectual property. I herby state that our reviews are not to be copied or shared unless you have my express permission.
If you have a book you would like us to review, feel free to send one. We can promise we will consider reading your book and if accepted, we can promise it will be read and reviewed. We cannot, however, promise the review will be favorable or provide a set timeline.
If you would like a review and would be willing to donate a physical copy of your book for our local library please send your book to the address above. Physical copies are highly appreciated as budgets are very limited and there is always a large population of patrons eagerly awaiting that next great book.
Why donate to a library? If my word isn’t enough that it’s important take a fellow author’s word for it. Michael Ransom, Author of The Ripper Gene: A Novel, during an interview had this to say…
- Reviews are important, but what about public libraries?
“They’re similarly important. I recently ran a book giveaway and was impressed by how many people were going to get their copy of The Ripper Gene through a library if they didn’t win. The libraries have to purchase their copies, so if you’re book is in high demand, it generates sales and the revenue necessary to sustain future books. More importantly, having your book in libraries helps simply by amplifying word-of-mouth… which is that often-cited, poorly understood phenomenon that seems vital to almost all the successes in this industry today.”
We do not accept payment or any sort of compensation beyond the free copy of the book to be reviewed. At times a book might be part of a series. In that case we will accept (and prefer) copies of the previous books in the series in order to better understand and enjoy the current book.
You can buy some of the books we review at the Deeper Shopping online store as well as read more reviews.
