Authors and Publishers
Update as of January 2014: I am no longer accepting new review requests. This does not apply to current authors/ publishers that I have a currrent working relationship with.
Attention Indie/ Self-published authors: I am no longer accepting indie/ self-published works for review.
If you are an Australian author and would like to be included in my weekly Wednesday feature for a Q&A, interview, guest post or giveaway, please contact me.
Welcome to The Australian Bookshelf blog.
What can you expect?
I post honest reviews about books I have read whether I highly recommend them or find them underwhelming- these are just my opinions and I strive to provide my readers with an honest account of my experience so they can make an informed decision about whether to purchase a particular book. I try to review books in a timely manner, but at times this may not be the case. My reviews include a brief synopsis of the story, an image of the book cover, link to purchase and what I personally think about the book. Please see my book review page for examples of my work.
The Australian Bookshelf is a voluntary, part-time blog written by an avid reader. Read my about me page to learn more about my interests. I do not receive any compensation for my reviews other than review copies from publishers. The Australian Bookshelf generates a minimal income through affiliate links which supports the running of the blog e.g. giveaways and postage etc.
What do I review?
I review books from a range of genres including: literary fiction, ‘chic lit,’ paranormal, fantasy, historical romance, non-fiction, travel memoirs and young adult fiction. I will not read horror stories (I am too much of a scaredy cat!). In particular strive to support the Australian book industry and these titles will take precedence over international titles.
