Review Policy

Please read the entire review policy before submitting a request.

As an author, I understand the importance of those reviews, especially verified reviews. Be warned, if I agree to review your book, I will post an honest comment. All reviews written by me will be posted here and on Goodreads. 4 and 5 star reviews will appear here, Goodreads, Amazon and I’ll even Tweet about them!
I DO judge a book by it’s cover in addition to many other things. If your book needs proofreading, don’t ask me to review it. If it has not been edited, please do not send it to me.

Here’s How I rate the work

1 star: I struggled to finish it.

2 star: It needs some work.

3 star: It has a lot of potential-Liked it

4 star: I really liked it

5 star: It was perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

Genres that I like to review:

Paranormal Fiction

Historical Fiction


Others . . . you can always ask

Genres that I will NOT review:



Young Adult

Christian Fiction


Children’s Books


Queries with attachments will be deleted immediately. Please do not send a PDF of your book with your query.

In the subject line please type,

Review Request; Title of Your Book

Please add your blurb, bio and buy links in the BODY of the email. Tell me why you are sure that I am just going to love it! Sell it to me because if I agree to review it, I am going to buy it! That’s right, verified review baby!

If I decide to review your book, I will let you know . . .if you don’t hear back, I either could not get to it or I chose not to, so there is no reason to resend your request.

Send queries to carolyn (dot) holland (underscore) author at yahoo please!

Happy writing!
