Hello!
I don't do reciprocal or paid reviews; I feel that they're unfair to readers. While I do review other authors, my interests lie mostly in fiction and I don't generally read autobiographic or historical work.

If you're looking for honest reviews I recommend the Review Group here on Goodreads. Best of luck to you in your writing and publishing endeavors!
