Hello Nenia. Hi! I'm Mariachiara Cabrini, an italian author, and this year I've made the huge decision to translate in english two of my novels: Imprinting love and Dreamwalker the girl who walks in dreams. I'm so exicited for this new experience, but also fearful because I don't have any contact with book blogs or book sites outside of Italy. So I would like to offer you an ARC of my novel Dreamwalker.Dreamwalker is a story of love, rebirth and courage, that utilizes the dreams of the protagonist as a methaphor of her view of the world, that is outside of wah we consider "normal" because of her mental illness. To write about an illness like schizophrenia, something people don't want to see or consider, is difficicult, but I have tried to do it with a positive attitude, to let it been seen that sometimes the end of our life as we know it can be the beginnin of a new life that can be as fullfilling as the first, only in a different way.It's not true that we can overcome anything if we apply ourselves. Some problem are impossible to solve. But with courage and will, we can accept our limits, and create new goals and new dreams that we will be able to achieve. Our life can change so much to become unrecognizable, but it's still our life, and it has always a meaning. It doesn't matter what it your limit, what has pushed you to resize your expectations o your goals, no dream will be less important than the first, and nothing will prevent you from redisigning yourself. Happiness is something we build and we can build to reflect ourselves andthe changes that we will undergo.Diana the protagonist of the novel in the beginnin sees helself as defective because of her illness. Not worthy of so many things. But at the end of the book she will finally learn her worth, and that she is just what she was meant to be, also with the help of an amazing man. So amazing I nick name him, privately, Mister Poppins, pratically perfect!If you are interested in reading my novel please let me know at this mail: weirde@libero best regardsMariachiara Cabrini

Handsome and darkly mysterious, Saul leaves a charm-stone in her safekeeping. Only, what appears to be a humble Hag Stone--used by folk to ward off evil spirits--is in reality a powerful talisman. One that a secret brotherhood has spent five-hundred years searching for.Life will never be the same for Lilia again.Her shadow begins behaving strangely--and when The Shade Brotherhood come after her, Lilia must leave her sleepy isle to embark on an epic journey into danger, discovery ... and love.The shadows are deepening and an ancient evil risks being unleashed upon the world.

I came across your website, reviewed your site and liked your honest style. I thought you'd enjoy my debut novel, Last Exit to Montauk. It’s won a few awards, and is a current finalist for 2017 Novel of the Year with Underground Book Reviews, and on the short list for CHATELAINE Book Awards is a division of the Chanticleer Reviews International Book Awards for Women’s Fiction & Romantic Fiction 2017. According to my readers, Last Exit to Montauk had them laughing and crying in the beat of just a few pages. It’s a coming-of-age romantic tale of young love, set in the 1980's and summertime on Long Island. Though the main characters are in their late teens, this is not classified as a new-adult novel, though it certainly could appeal to readers in that category. Instead, I see it as a love story for any age. And my readership thus far attests to that, talking about memories of first love, or Long Island, or summertime anywhere, or the icons of the 1980's—or all of the above. It’s also received endorsements from some heavy-hitters in the book industry as well.The novel is available in digital format. Also, I am willing to participate in an author interview.

Hi Nenia,Are you interested in reviewing the bestselling book Peter Green and the Unliving Academy?It's the story of 14-year-old Peter Green, who can't remember how he died. Spirited away to Mrs. Battisworth's Academy and Haven for Unliving Boys and Girls, Pete is granted spooky superpowers in this unusual life-after-death and meets a host of extremely colorful (and extremely dead) characters, some of whom are dead orphans just like him. But even as he adjusts to life as a dead boy, Pete can't shake the feeling that he's forgotten somebody he left behind in the land of the living. Somebody he loved very much. Somebody who's in terrible danger. If you're interested, I'd be happy to send you a free eBook or paperback review copy. We also offer some free copies for your audience if you wanted to do a giveaway. If there’s anything else that I can do to help, just let me know.Thanks!All the best,MariaAuthor Support Specialistwww.firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Nenia. Since you're a fan of Grace Draven, I'm hoping to interest you in my new novella, SWEET POISON. It's a fantasy romance that pretty evenly balances steam and story. Quick blurb: when a duke's daughter is poisoned with a diabolical love potion, a the mysterious mercenary is hired to lead her through hostile territory, in hopes of finding a cure. It's available through KU.

Hi Nenia,I saw the review you wrote of Ready Player One by Ernest Cline in 2016. If you enjoyed the high-stakes gameplay in that book, I think you’d like my grown-up choose-your-own-adventure novel The Friar’s Lantern.In The Friar’s Lantern, you may win $1,000,000. And you will judge a man of murder.If you’re interested, I’d love to send you a free ebook copy in exchange for an honest review. Just email me at greg[at]greghickeywrites[dot]com and let me know what ebook format works best for you.Thanks,Greg Hickey
Hi Nenia!I came across your blog and followed you on Twitter after reading your reaction to Throne of Glass. Your review particularly stuck out to me because I began writing (angrily, I’ll add) The Soulstealers after reading that specific book. In response, I decided to create an I’m-not-like-other-girls character, Arnaka Skytree, who learns that other girls are actually pretty damn amazing! The Soulstealers is basically a redemption story for a “chosen one” girl who’s been brainwashed. Here’s a link to the book on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/44170570-the-soulstealers Readers have taken issue with the pacing at the start (I have flashbacks). I should also note that the book doesn’t gloss over the negative aspects of repression, and a few readers have had to put it down for that reason. The book also focuses on how women support patriarchal societies; the main villain is a woman. That said, the vast majority of the feedback has been very positive. Readers enjoy the fact that Arnaka is a complex, flawed MC who struggles throughout the book. Her decisions—good and bad—have real consequences. Readers have also appreciated the diversity in The Soulstealers. There is asexual, lesbian, and bisexual rep. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please let me know! You can reach me at Jackeeroh@gmail.com.
Oh wow, that sounds awesome!

Hi Nenia,My name is Kelsey Quick and I am currently seeking out reviewers for my vampire dystopian novel, A Violet Fire. Not set to come out until December of this year, A Violet Fire has already: 1. Garnered four 5 star reviews from Readers' Favorite (not yet published, waiting on the fifth review)2. A wholly positive review from Kirkus Reviews3. A 3.89 overall average on Goodreads with most of the ratings coming from NetGalley and unbiased sources. A Violet Fire is my debut novel, and I'm doing all of it on my own. I nearly got taken up by an agent who agonized over his decision to reject, and I have been told by a few unbiased sources that I should have been traditionally published with this work. I would love and appreciate your honest feedback on my novel as I know you love vampires, and you tend to stray from the hype. I can offer you your choice of ARC: NetGalley widget, MOBI, EPUB, PDF, or Physical Copy(complete with character cards!) And the hard date needed is not until the first week of December. :)I appreciate your time. Please feel free to email me at the address provided below. Best,Kelsey Quickkelseydquick@gmail.com
Nenia,I know you get a lot of requests to review books, but ever since reading your review of Children of Blood and Bone I have been intrigued with what you might think of my book, a historical novel set in ancient Egypt that tells a unique story about the day Moses was taken from the Nile by the sister of Pharaoh. I know historical fiction is not on your list of favorites, but I can see you pull no punches, and I am looking for a critical review by someone for whom this type of book is outside their normal area of interest, which would tend to make them even more critical of everything about the book. It would have to be good to keep their interest and I think my book is good, very good in fact.My reviews on Amazon have been exceptionally good and I am working on the subsequent titles, but I need a critical eye to show me my weaknesses and where I need to improve and I am sure you could provide that (about that I have no doubts). I can send you reviewer's copy (printed) or give you a Kindle version, if you don't have Kindle Unlimited.Thank you for even reading this far, and I appreciate that you might even consider my request. That said, I think you will enjoy the book and the see the story of Moses in a radically new light, one that fits the historical record and is true to the Egypt into which he was born.Here is the Amazon link to the book. https://www.amazon.com/Beginnings-Book-One-Chronicles-Lawgiver-ebook/dp/B00JMAP0ZY/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=meisheid&qid=1569607657&s=books&sr=1-1Regards,William Meisheid

Lauren SevierEmail: Lauren.email@example.comWebsite: www.laurensevier.comDear Nenia,I have read several of your reviews and found them to be honest, comprehensive, and really dialed in to readers expectations. I would love it if you would consider reviewing an ARC of my debut YA Fantasy novel 'Songs of Autumn' that explores themes of climate crisis, tragedy and rebirth, the effect absentee fathers have on youth. It features a strong romantic sub-plot and turns the 'chosen one' trope on its head by making it a curse instead of a blessing. I'm including a link to the goodreads page in case you may be interested. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/49204479-songs-of-autumn?from_search=true&qid=VdBEzJZXO6&rank=5ARCs will be available in 4/2020 in several formats and I hope you'll consider reading/reviewing. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely,Lauren Sevier
Hi Nenia,We're more than a little obsessed with your Goodreads reviews. We want to tell you about our newest release, The Meat Hunter, a book that's a cross between Dexter and the kickass female vigilante we all deserve.What people are saying about The Meat Hunter by Megan Allen:“Allen’s charming female-Dexter will seduce you, excite you, terrify and change you.”— The Novel Reader“Allen has the plotting chops of someone with five thrillers under her belt”— Kirkus ReviewMolly Bishop grew up on a farm and was horrified by her father’s indifference toward the animals they raised. Now a seductive and cunning young woman, Molly seeks out the cruelest members of the meat industry and offers up her own brand of Dexter-style redemption.MEGAN ALLEN is known for her controversial Tarantino-esque novels. She has been compared to Steinbeck for her use of empathy and compassion while examining the darkest corners of modern society. Megan refers to her books as “thrillers with a social conscience.” Her first novel, The Slave Players, gained the attention of a vocal chapter of the KKK and inspired over 22,000 readers and librarians to chant her battle cries.We would love to send you a copy of The Meat Hunter for your review. If you feel drawn to collaborate from there, we would love to talk further. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!Thank you for your time,Burn House Publishing
Dear Nenia,My name is Sameer Garach, and I noticed that you're a Top Reviewer and Vine Voice on Amazon. "The Bull Option" is an adult commercial financial thriller/comedy that combines the high-rolling world of hedge funds in Norb Vonnegut’s "The Gods of Greenwich" with the cunningness of Steven Soderbergh’s "Ocean’s Eleven."When Kannada Khan, an investment banker turned homeless man, saves the life of Robert Prosperi, a struggling hedgie, he is repaid with a unique yet risky job offer that could change his fortune forever.With plans for a theft on Wall Street, Robert aims to undermine his rival, the head of the New York Stock Exchange, and Kannada seeks to return to a life of normalcy. They recruit a motley crew from Main Street—a bartender, a stockbroker, an attorney, a computer hacker, a pilot, a boxer, a confidence man, and an upscale luxury companion—to carry out their scheme.Three weeks is all they have to infiltrate the heart of American financial power and steal the proceeds from the biggest Initial Public Offering in recent history. However, money isn't the only motive driving Kannada. Chasing his past flame is his game. Now she's working for and dating the very Wall Street titan they're trying to rob.Here are some reviews:"This book is written in a fast-paced style. Although there are many people involved in the plot, each one is aptly described and easy to imagine. Each character has distinguishing aspects, such as the computer hacker who eats Cheetos constantly. While the main plot is the unfolding financial heist, and whether or not it will succeed, the love relationships in Kannada's life add another suspense element to the story. This book is a page-turner, and the reader is engaged from the first page to the last. Author Sameer Garach has crafted a captivating and realistic story in 'The Bull Option.' It is a thrilling read!"—Deborah Lloyd, Readers' Favorite (5 Stars)"Hedge funds, insider trading, stock markets, IPO－there was an initial concern that I wouldn't be able to fully appreciate the story with my layman knowledge regarding the mechanics of the financial world, particularly Wall Street. However, 'The Bull Option' is not excessively weighed down by too many monetary details or financial terms. Non-technical readers will be able to enjoy this financial thriller just fine...Overall, this is a solid debut from Garach."—Lit Amri, Readers' Favorite (4 Stars)"Sameer Garach's work reads like an upscale 'Ocean's Eleven,' bringing the complexity and elegance of New York's financial world into the mix alongside everyday Joes who want to make some money and make it fast. What really sold it to me was the down-and-out Kannada Khan, whom any reader would empathize with and root for despite the huge financial crime he's planning. Author Sameer Garach puts great empathy into Kannada's dialogue and ways of thinking, offering a unique and intimate perspective of the lengths that people will go to get themselves out of the gutter, in this case, literally. Garach strikes an excellent balance between the well-described ensemble cast and the plot, which wasn't overly complex. Overall, I recommend 'The Bull Option' to fans of crime fiction, suspense novels and heist movies in general."—Debjani Ghosh, Readers' Favorite (5 Stars)If you would like a complimentary review copy, please contact me at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.Sincerely,Sameer Garach, Authorwww.sameergarach.com
Hello Nenia,Ah, how I adore your Goodreads reviews!I'd like to request a review for my Paranormal/Mythological Romance novel My Song’s Curse publishing through City Owl Press on August 31, 2020.Here’s the blurb… ***Ultimate control has its downside, especially when it comes to romance. But will it be enough to keep them together?As a siren, Lula Aglaope can bend anyone to her will with the smallest whisper, but she’d give up her power for one meaningful, honest conversation.She wants a normal life, like the open, true connections the humans seem to pull off with such little effort. When she meets Alexiares, God of Warding off Wars, all thoughts of normalcy fly out the window. The beautiful demigod cannot be controlled! He’s frustrating, irresistible...and utterly off-limits. Alex has watched Olympus slowly fall apart. The old gods continue their archaic control of the Universe, denying the progress of humans and other deities. But Alex has plans to repair the damage, and Lula is a major player. She just doesn’t know it yet.Falling for her is the worst idea. And just when things move in the right direction, danger arises that no one expects, plunging the sirens into the deadly Olympian spotlight. With Lula’s sisters missing, and a pile of broken laws surrounding them, will Alex and Lula change the Universe for the better or destroy it? ***If My Song’s Curse sounds like something you’d be interested in checking out, I’d be happy to send you a complementary ARC.

Hi Nenia,My name is Madeline, and I’m the marketing assistant at Crooked Lane Books!

For fans of Kathleen Barber and Julia Heaberlin, this chilling story features a woman who discovers her late mother had a decades-long secret correspondence with a serial killer, begging the question: how well do we know our own family and even ourselves? Williams deftly explores nature vs. nurture, with a side of eerie folklore.We are sending out a galley mailing next month and would love to include you on our mailing list! Please let me know if you would be interested and, if so, where we should send your package. I can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.orgBest,Madeline

Hi Nenia,My book doesn't fall within the genres you tend to concentrate on, but I decided to reach out anyway after seeing your review of Byron Lane's "A Star Is Bored", a book I haven't actually read but which struck me as conceivably maybe somewhat similar to mine."Revolution" is a lighthearted but cynical novel about a bunch of loosely interconnected people living in present-day Southern California, centered around one middle-aged couple, Bill and Yvonne Smede. It blends realistic "slice of life" storytelling with elements of satire, irony and farce. More info, including excerpts, here: https://revolutionnovel.comI'd be honored and grateful if you were interested in giving it a try, and will happily furnish you a complimentary copy in whatever is your preferred format.Thanks for your time and best wishes,Daviddorroughdavid@firstname.lastname@example.org
