We would be happy to accept books for review. For submissions can contact Anachronist by sending an e-mail to:
portiabridget (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk.
Before you send anything, though, please read some of our reviews to know the style and find out whether you like it or not. Depending on the book and the amount of time currently at our disposal, we might end up writing mini reviews or full length reviews.
For your convenience here you can find two linked examples here: a positive review and a negative review.
If you want to know more about our rating system (or rather the lack thereof) please kindly consult this post.
As it is an international blog we will review books only in English. We accept published books (self-publishing included) and ARCs. We are not compensated for any reviews on this site - it’s enough you send us a book free of charge, but it also means you will not be able to influence the review in any way. In other words, no matter whether we like or dislike your work, we will always state it loud and clear, without sugarcoating or fawning. If you find it hard to accept candid criticism, think twice before submitting. If you do submit, however, it is stipulated you got acquainted with the terms and accepted them in full - no regrets or complaints afterwards.
Be sure, however that:
• The review will represent an honest opinion.
• Reasons for liking or disliking the book will be given and explained.
• Any ebook copies will not be circulated on any site or peer2peer network.
• We will not spoil, especially when it comes to ARCs.
If you wish we can include :
• Links to Publisher/Author website
• Links to Amazon, Kobo, or other credible online bookshop to buy the book
• Images of the Book, video promo etc.
If you have a specific request like e.g. when you'd like the review to go up, please make sure to include this in your message. Anachronist reviews e-books as long as they are in pdf, mobi, or lit (Word or Microsoft Reader) formats. Rameau prefers epub, mobi, or pdf formats.
Genres we usually read and review:
- Urban fantasy
- Science fiction
- Contemporary fiction
- Historical fiction
- Paranormal romance
- Paranormal romance
- Crime and mystery
- Historical romance
- YA adventures
It is definitely not a full list and it might change.
We reserve the right to refuse to review any book without stating the reasons.
You will be notified if we agree to review a book and if we write a review you will be sent a link and given an opportunity to comment.
One more remark.
This blog is being written in our free time. It is neither a job nor a family nor both. It might happen that we accept your book for reviewing and then don't have time to read and review it at all due to real life problems. Sorry but that's life. If you don't want to take such a risk, don't contact us at all. We can't promise ANYTHING 100%. Tomorrow we might even be dead and so might you.
Thank you for your visit!
Edited to Add from Anachronist:
After contacting me do make sure your e-mail box won't block my reply or treat it as spam. It's happened several times that, after sending my acceptance I was informed that my e-mail simply "bounced". Pity.
