Review policy


So you’re looking for a review – well, first of all congratulations for writing a book! To put things in perspective, I am already reviewing books for the following publishers in Australia:

These publishers send me catalogues and I choose books that appeal to me for possible review. See here for the types of books I like to read.

Reviewed books have links posted on:

  • Write Note Reviews (this website)
  • Facebook pages – my own and the publisher’s
  • Twitter
  • Goodreads

Links are also sent to the publisher and in some cases, the author. Some reviews are sent to my local newspaper and/or online magazines for consideration.

Still interested? Here’s what you do:

  1. If you would like your book reviewed, please ask your publisher to contact me at writenote1@gmail.com or using the contact form below to offer me a review copy.
  2. If the book appeals to me, I will ask for a copy.
  3. If I agree to review a book, it can take some time to appear on the site. Please be patient and do not email me to see when the review will appear. I will let your publisher know when the review is online.
  4. At times I will decide not to review a book, even if it initially appealed. I may have too many books at that  time, or I may be unable to give the book a “good” review, which has happened from time to time. Please don’t be offended – we all have our preferences. Like all of us, I am juggling a lot in life – my “balls” to juggle include a loving husband, four kids, three pets, a home, a part-time job, freelance work and occasionally jutting down notes for my own book dreams. This is a hobby, not a paid job.

Most important – please ask your publisher to get in touch. It’s much easier for me to keep track of. All reviews are sent to them following uploading and/or publication in other media.

Best of luck with your writing… and now it’s time for me to get back to reading.
