Thank you for visiting my reviews.  

Please return often as I continue to add more reviews.


If you have an original published, or soon-to-be-published, work that you would like for me to read and post a candid review, please leave your request and contact information on my CONTACT PAGE and I'll get in touch with you.  Thanks!

NOTE about the REVIEWS that I write:   

1.   By posting reviews, my focus reflects a commitment to a select portion of doctrine from my Christian faith of choice.  

".....If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." 

(Articles of Faith #13) (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints)

2.   My reviews are entirely and only of my opinion. 

3.   My reviews, whether unsolicited/unpaid or solicited/paid, are my original writing, and as such, are under Copyright protection, with all rights reserved. 

4.   An image copy of the book's cover art may appear with my review solely for the purpose of identifying the Author's published, or soon-to-be-published, work.  

5.   Whenever possible, I will notify the Author(s) of the reviewed work regarding my posted review, and I will inform the Author(s) that he/she may use any or all of the review in any way they would like, so long as my identity as the 

Reviewer remains intact.  

6.  Unsolicited reviews are free of charge.

7.  I retain the right to grant a solicited review to be free of charge. However, solicited reviews will usually be considered to be a paid professional service with a negotiated contractual agreement between me and the Author/Publisher/Agent or other promotional entity seeking a review of the published or soon-to-be published work. The contract will specify the terms of permission for the solicitor to utilize/publish/promote my written review.  The solicitor will provide me with a free copy of the work for review, and I will have the right to retain that copy afterward. The solicitor will also promptly provide me with proof of any publication/use of my review.  This proof may be either electronic or hard copy.  

8. If I acquire a free book through a Giveaway or similar public random drawing, whether in exchange for an unbiased review or not, a statement stating this will be attached to my review of that book.

9. Non-paid reviews may appear publicly on my Reviewer/Writer's website, various electronic purchasing/marketing sites such as,,,, and others.  

10.  Solicited/paid reviews will appear publicly as per terms of the contract. 

11.  I retain the right to grant permission to educators to utilize copies of my reviews for educational purposes in the classroom setting, such as in the study of literary reviews.  This agreement is granted free of charge. 

12.  I may use portions of my reviews in dialogue/discussion whenever I participate in a panel discussion.
