  1. Hi Lisa,

    I see that you’re open to receiving books to consider for review! Would you be interested in a copy of “High Heels to Hormones: A Woman’s Guide to Spine Pain,” by Christina Lasich, M.D.?

    Dr. Lasich is open to the possibility of book giveaways, contests, author interviews and guest posts on your blog.

    If you’d like a copy may I have your mailing address? Advance review copies are coming in next month.

    Thank you!
    Kathlene Carney

  2. may i forward a query for your consideration on my latest book, Down to a Sunless Sea?
    thank you

  3. Would you be interested in receiving a copy of a new book about Angeline Beloff, a successful artist who lived in Paris at the turn of the last century?
    She married Diego Rivera and allowed herself to be overshadowed until she met the women who helped her to reclaim herself.
    It’s about women’s issues, art , travel and philosophy and takes place in Paris, Bruges, southern Spain and Mexico. It’s a great read on vacation

  4. oops! sorry about the repeat. thought the first query was lost!

  5. Would you be interested in receiving a review copy of Cardboard: A woman left for dead?

    The novel is a ficto-critical account of one woman’s life-threatening eating disorder and her eventual hard-won recovery. Author Fiona Place has created Lucy, a narrator who is capable of taking the reader inside the dark and often puzzling experience of anorexia nervosa. . . You can read more about it on the author website!

    Please let me know if it seems a book that would interest you and I will send you a an ARC copy.

    Best wishes

  6. How do I submit a book to you for review consideration?

  7. I would be thrilled if you would consider reviewing my book, Muted Grey. I will have Advance Review Copies this week, and will gladly send you one should you be interested. Also, if you are willing, I’d like to provide additional books for a giveaway should you be willing. I’d be happy to pay any shipping costs, etc.
    If you are interested in learning more about my book, please feel free to visit my website at:
    I look forward to hearing from you!

  8. I should probably delete this page. I never update it anymore.

  9. Hello. I stumbled across your site. As a new indie author of my debut novelette I would be so honored to have a book review of my story, Before the Legend from your site. It’s an alternative/historical novelette taking place in a fictionalized setting, in the backdrop of the Roman Empire. It’s written from a fresh, unique perspective of a 4 year old royal boy. Here’s a brief synopsis to give you a taste for the story.

    Life couldn’t have seemed so simple for young Troy, the son of a king, who rules over a mysterious island. However one nightmare shatters that illusion, leaving him questioning what he always thought about his parents. Now the four year old is left with questions he wasn’t meant to understand yet. But he doesn’t realize something far bigger is coming and it promises to rock the island to its core. There’s no turning back now.

    Please let me know if this would be something you would be interested in reviewing, so I can obtain a copy for you. It’s available in print and e-book format at the moment. (Amazon and Smashwords)
