Grea Alexander (greaalexander) Yay you! You’ve already passed the first criteria in becoming a Grea Alexander reviewer! (Clicking into this post.)

While I am slowly but surely gaining notoriety, er, popularity, on GoodReads & Twitter, that notoriety is unfortunately not spreading across my vendor sites (where they actually do me the most good). The more reviews I get, the better my ranking, the better my visibility & the better my sales. The better my sales, the more time I can devote to writing and thus spreading the joy of my Grea-ness throughout the world….kind of like a Grea-gue.

That being said, I am looking for some reviewers to read my books and spread their reviews about like confetti. (Oh, Joy!)

I am requesting reviews be posted on these sites and/or any other sites you can think of/frequent:

Amazon (which ever applies to your country)
Barnes & Noble

You can also post on any of these retailer sites that carry my books: and/or
Library Thing

You are not expected to be a copy editor or a beta reader. (I already have people chained up in my basement for that specific purpose.) You simply download a free copy via Smashwords to read and review with both stars AND words.

I know. I know. It’s scary using your words; but rest assured, your words don’t have to be Shakespearean or in the format of an SAT/ACT essay. Just a few sentences minimum with your honest review will suffice. However, if you are bard-esque or scored at least a 3 on your SAT essay, please feel free to pontificate.

Your smashwords code will be individualized so yes, I will know when you redeem it. You will have 1 week from the time I send the code to “buy” the book for $0.00. You may NOT share the code I give you nor post in whole or in part any of the content of any of my books without my express written permission. If you violate these terms you will be promptly ejected from this program, thoroughly shunned and subsequently smote by forces beyond both of our control.

If you like me and I like you, we will continue with future titles. If we don’t like each other, there is no reason for you to continue on with me or me with you.

I will not now nor have I ever paid anyone to review any of my books. You get a free copy and the satisfaction of a job well done. In the future, should I achieve some level of success, rest assured that those who knew me back when will not be forgotten (but rather blackmailed to keep quiet about all they know).

I am a very happy, silly, sarcastic person; however, my books tend to be more on the darker, angsty side…. with elements of black humor. I write historical fiction and horror. My historical fiction contains various levels of historical accuracy – from ridiculously accurate (Amarna) to simply set in historical times with nods to historical events/customs. My horror is dark, gory and campy with a tendency towards the supernatural. I am a very to the point writer focused more on events and character development than the color of the fabric on the killer’s favorite easy chair. Most everything and every character in my stories has a purpose.

I write novellas and series primarily so, if you are not someone who enjoys short stores or series, run away screaming now. I don’t write children’s books. My books are adult in nature and contain very adult content including foul language, sexual situations, blood, torture & gore. If you are faint of heart, I am probably not the writer for you either.

On the bright side, you do not have to read everything I write but you do not get to request what you want to read either. I will put up a title for review and if you want to read and review that title just let me know.

If you review a book that is part of a series or you just want to read another of my titles, just let me know and I’ll hook you up with a discount or, dependent upon your efforts, a free download copy. Same rules as above apply.

Other than that, me and the Backstreet Boys don’t care who you are, where you’re from or what you did… long as you love me.

Here is my lovely goodreads page:
Here is my website:
Peruse away to see if we might just be a match made in cardboard.

Still interested? Send your resume to or you could just say, “Hey! I’m interested in reviewing (insert genre here)” and include a link to previous reviews you’ve written. If you haven’t previously completed any written reviews, simply amuse the hell out of me.
