Scott (Bookblogger) Hello everyone,

My name is Scott and I have been running a book review blog for about 7 months now. I have reviewed about 75 books so far and am always looking for more books to read. I decide what to review on a case by case basis with erotica being the only genre I have no interest in at all. I am also not a huge fan of romance, but will read the samples and decide based on them. I also host giveaways on Mondays and guest spots on Saturdays. Stop by and say hi.

If you would like a review you can leave a comment on my review sign up tab or message me through Goodreads. My reviews are posted on my blog, Amazon, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, Shelfari, and Goodreads.

Thanks very much! I wish I had a better eye for color an design, but when I try to get fancy or make it look nice I just destroy it. I am going for content right now and trying my best to write good reviews.

Thanks Anne-Mhairi, Patti :)

Mhairi Simpson (mhairisimpson) | 106 comments @Scott: You're welcome, and it looks fine. Maybe a little on the basic side, but personally, considering it's a review site, I'm more interested in the content than its appearance.

@Patti: You're welcome :D

Colin Taber Hi Scott,

Let me know if you'd be interested in The Fall of Ossard which tells a coming of age tale styled as a dark fantasy. It's more a story of brooding and layers than an action packed adventure.

Most reviewers have been impressed with the world building, main character's development and the unique feel of the story. The Fall of Ossard broke into the Borders Australia top 20 not long after release.


message 7: by Scott (new)

Scott (Bookblogger) Hiya Colin,

I actually already have both your books. Congrats on the high ranking so soon after release. That is a great accomplishment!


message 8: by Colin (new)

Colin Taber Wow.

I didn't expect you'd already have them!

They seem to be going well, both finding their niche amongst the multitude of genres.

Thanks for the kind words.

P.J. Johns (PJJohns) | 26 comments Hi Scott,

If you're interested in steampunk fantasy, you might like Liberator's Ruin.

It's available on Kindle and Smashwords. Let me know if you're interested in reviewing it, and I'll be happy to send you a copy for review.

Description:
In a world at war, three people will decide the fate of an entire country.

Nathaniel An’Rieyr is the captain of the airship Storm Brother and profiteer extraordinaire. He dreams of making his fortune in the lucrative southern trade routes. But to achieve that, he will need to get involved in a war he has made a career of avoiding.

As the last surviving member of the Illysian Royal Family, the war is all Anna has left. The Rhivellian Empire took her family, her throne and her country. Unable to compete against the might of the Rhivellian war machine, Anna enacts a plan to retrieve a mighty artefact from a long-forgotten time. With it, she will finally have the power to force the Empire from her land; a goal for which she will sacrifice anyone, even her closest ally.

Thomas Ras’Kar, High Inquisitor of the Rhivellian Empire, has been sent to the capital of Illys in disgrace, where he will be forced to contend with the incompetent Thane Charles. Three years of occupation has seen the people of Illum cowed and the Thane’s interest turned to his own pleasures. A fate worse than death for a man of honour and action such as Thomas. But the Princess is returning to Illum, and she may be the key to Thomas’ redemption.

Scott (Bookblogger) Hello Phillip,

I have to admit that steampunk is a pretty new genre to me, but I am really enjoying what I have read so far. I will check out a sample of the book and let you know for certain about the review. Thanks for the info on the book!

Libby (LibbyHeily) | 16 comments Hi Scott!

I have a very short collection of flash fiction entitled Twist Turn and Burn. It's less than 20 pages long and I released it as a way of introducing myself to the reading community. I'm working on my debut novel and I post new flash fiction on my blog every Friday. Twist Turn and Burn hops genres and styles. I don't know if this fits the format you prefer as it is a much shorter work and not truly a novel, but I figure there is no harm is asking. I'll leave the link to the free ebook available via smashwords below:

Thanks!

Libby

Scott (Bookblogger) Hi Phillip,

Your book looks interesting and I would enjoy giving it a read. My email can be found on my blog or send me a private message on Goodreads and we can get the details figured out.

Scott (Bookblogger) Hi Libby,

I picked up a copy of your short story collection. I enjoy short stories as they can give me a break from the 600 page novels that I read on a regular basis. It's nice to be able to sit down and knock a book out in a single sitting. I'll let you know when I get to it.

Scott

Michael, We have not started that part of our web site yet but feel free to email my team a synopsis of your book to info@editioselfpublishing.com. Make your you title it "Book Review" So that it makes it into the write hands. Then when we get that part up and running we can contact you.

Julian White | 3 comments Hi Scott

Perhaps you'd be kind enough to take a look at my horror novel, The Diviners. It's chunky, multi-stranded and somewhere between Stephen King and Clive Barker -- I hope! I can let you have a Smashwords coupon if you're interested.

Thanks!

Julian

Thanks for the opportunity.

Kerem Mermutlu | 1 comments Hi Scott,
I don't know if you'd be interested in reviewing my YA contemporary novel My Last Summer. On Amazon it's been described as a 'Cather in the Rye for Asia.' Don't know if this would interest you!

Really enjoy your reveiws by the way!

John Zunski (JohnZunski) | 2 comments Hi Scott,


I'm just another clash of cymbals in a long parade - but if you can hear through the noise you may hear music. I have a realistic contemporary entitled Cemetery Street that I would love to have you review. It's a tearjerker. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/... Enter code ng85x for a complimentary copy.

Thanks,
John Zunski


message 26: by Scott (new)

Scott (Bookblogger) Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay in responses. I wasn't getting any emails about people posting in this thread. I thought it had died!

John thanks for the coupon I picked up a copy of your book this morning.

Kerem I'll check out a sample of your book ASAP and let you know.

Julian I got a sample of your book as well. I'll try to get a message to you guys by Tuesday at the latest.

Chris Parker (ChrisParker) | 6 comments Hi Scott,
If you are interested I would love to get some honest feedback of my first book 'The Vanishing Cyclist'.
It's a suspense / thriller, and you can see a sample from 'search inside' on Amazon. If you like the sound of it you can download for free using the coupon code JF44S on Smashwords, or I can email a copy if that doesn't work.
Thanks,
Chris

Scott (Bookblogger) Hi Chris,

I picked up the copy of your book from Smashwords. It will take me awhile to get it read, but I will try to remember to let you know when I do.

Hi Barbara,

I checked out your book listing and you have a ton of books! Which one do you think best represents the land that you have created?


message 30: by Steve (new)

Steve Vernon (SteveVernon) | 8 comments Hi Scott,

I am trying to drum up reviews for my latest release - Two Fisted Nasty

This is a collection of one novella - LEFTOVERS, and three short stories. Each of these four yarns are written in a tough noir/horror style and are definitely NOT for those gentle readers who are easily offended.

The collection is available in Kindle format and I would happily provide you with a review copy if you figure you'd be interested.

yours in storytelling,
Steve Vernon

message 38: by Greg (new)

Greg | 8 comments Hi, Scott. Would you be willing to take a look at my horror novella Lucifer's Sword? It's $1.99 on Amazon Kindle. My pen name is Greg Tom.

When Jesse Knight, his family, and friends go to Intermediate Lake, they expect it to be their usual summer trip, but things aren't at all as they seem. His family encounters several supernatural creatures, and along the way Jesse gains his own abilities. Jesse learns about his family and heritage, discovering that everything he's been told his whole life was a lie. He must find a way to face his fears, while dealing with scuba divers and monsters who are all trying to find Lucifer's sword. If Lucifer's sword is unleashed, it threatens to destroy the entire world, and his group must do everything they can to stop it.
