We love to read! Have a book to review? Send an email to nbmars AT yahoo DOT com.
We are happy to hear from publicists and authors about review opportunities.
Our favorite genres are non-fiction – especially history, biography, law, and religion; literary fiction;, science; science fiction; and mysteries. One of us is also very fond of books for children and for young adults. We generally do not accept self-published books or erotica for review. If you are in doubt, please contact us and we will be more than happy to let you know if we are interested in the book you want to publicize!
We are currently scheduling reviews two to three months in advance, but are flexible.
We try to review all books received unless we just can’t get into a book. (There are two of us, so your chances are doubled at least one of us will like it.) We also generally try to follow our mothers’ injunctions to find something nice to say about people, but we will not say we liked a book if we didn’t.
If you’re interested in having us review the book you are publicizing or have any other questions, please e-mail us!
