  1. Hi
    I'm Croatian award winning horror, SF and children's fantasy writer with more then 30 books published. My real name is Sanja Petriska, but I write under the name Viktoria Faust. My first novel in English is out, Beauty of The Beast. It's vampire horror novel (not vampire romance novel, but horror). It was first published in Croatia 15 years ago, and readers loved it.
    Would you be willing to review it?

    blurb
    Viktoria, a young and not particularly talented painter, comes across war vampires in the middle of war torn Croatia in 1992. She becomes obsessed with them. But socializing with vampires is dangerous. One of them attacks her and infects her with what she believes is AIDS. To save herself she leaves with Damian, the oldest of the vampires, on an adventure that will prolong her life forever … or end it.
    Looking forward for your answer

  2. I found you on Tweet Your Book, and then followed you on Twitter. You say you're interested in historical fiction, so perhaps you'd be interested in Gold Rush Deluge.
    http://www.amazon.com/Gold-Rush-Deluge-California-Argonauts-ebook/dp/B00MQ6MDMY/

    Gold Rush Deluge, Book Two of The California Argonauts is:

    · A novel based on historical events in gold rush Sacramento.

    · The story of a young, single woman determined to become a doctor in an era when women were not accepted into the medical profession.

    · A murder mystery.

    · A love story.

    · A glimpse into the Wild West of 1850s mining life.

    I’m delighted to connect with you and send you a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I realize the time you take to review books is quite valuable, so I’d like to make getting the book into your hands as simple as possible. I can send you a gift of the Kindle book which you can redeem on Amazon. If you prefer PDF, epub or another format, just let me know.

    Not sure if you'll like my writing? You can try out my free short story in the series and get to know Lucinda and George. Gold Rush Wedding is permafree everywhere online.

  4. Hi Julie,

    I saw your name on Author Resources and see that you are a trusted reviewer. Thank you for helping out authors. I know it takes time to read and review books.
    I was wondering if you would consider reviewing my newly released book Annoure and the Dragon Ships. It's historical fiction with a strong romance. The story is set in 794 A.D. about a young noble woman who is kidnapped on the second Viking raid on Saxon England. The book is accurately researched and takes the reader to England, Norway and the steppes of Asia. Along the way there is adventure, vengeance, redemption and love.
    Below is the Amazon link.

    My Best,

    Heidi Skarie

  5. Hello!

    I am an author from former SCP, now re-published with Roane Publishing. My name is Iryna K Combs.

    Are you still accepting reviews?

    I would like to submit my dystopian sci-fi fantasy novel Black Wings. It has a touch of sweet romance and was enjoyed by readers who read romance genre mostly. I will be honored to provide you with an e-file of your choice. I saw that you are not a big fan of sci-fi but please give this one a chance, you will enjoy it since there are so many twists, turns and a happy end. Let this new creatures take you to their world!

    Here is more info about it:

    Blurb: A new time. A new planet. A new world. New technologies. Two new humanoid species. A new war.
    The two species separate, but in the removal, some of the best are left behind among the worst. Captured and held as slaves, they are treated cruelly for entertainment. Torture. Pain.
    Annabel, endures a year of such cruelty, kept alive only by way of syringes which, while healing, cause a greater agony. She discovers a secret held by their leader, and decides to help her own kind by escaping–even if it means a final death, preferable to the life she has endured.
    Her escape succeeds, and she joins her own kind at the other end of the planet. Among her new friends she meets many who help her adjust to their happier life. Will Annabel find romance? Or will another war break her down?

  8. Greetings GPangel-
    I enjoyed browsing your reviews on your site. I am nearly ready to release a new fantasy novel with science fiction elements and I wondering if you would be interested in reviewing it?


    Author: Lars Teeney
    Number of published books: 4

    Title: The Shackled Scribes

    Synopsis:
    Futharkia is a city built upon the layout of an ancient rune shape, and a foundation of slavery. The Broxanians have been enslaved by the Olgoikhorkian Masters to exploit the Broxanian talent for rune-scribing. In exchange, the rune-scribes are compensated with the sweet, golden liquid, Ichor, that the giant worm-like Olgoikhorkians secrete from their glands. The Ichor also happens to be highly addictive and psychoactive. The system has worked for millennia. However, the Great Fern Jungle that surrounds Futharkia is dying, being bleached white by some unseen force. Coupled with the fact that the simian-like Fern Lice have been hunted to near extinction to provide for Futharkia's ever-increasing demand for food, the ecosystem is near collapse. It is amid this setting that Cyesko Limariar, an aging rune-scribe makes one last attempt at greatness to lift himself out of poverty, even if by fraudulent means.
