Meet our group!
I will review anything that is well-written. I keep in mind what the target audience would like and review towards them. My favorite genre is romance and erotica. My pet peeve is weak writing, and if I see it a lot, I will stop reading and move onto the next book. For more information on what I mean by weak writing, please see this article – Stronger Writing Made Easy.
I like anything but religion, poetry, political, memoirs. In a 5 star book, I look at prose, writing style, clarity, movement, character development, and description. I don’t like to get bored.
I will review anything that is well crafted: I strive to assess how well the work meets the desires of the target audience; how well the work meets stylistic goals; and general genre conventions. While I have a slight personal preference towards Science-fiction, there is not a genre that I have not enjoyed works from.
Elkin will be sharing his reviews on his Facebook.
Tinker Publishing (Terence Vickers)
I began to read when comic books cost a dime and it is still a favourite Pastime. Some of my favourites are westerns, detectives, science fiction, and fantasy. My favourite authors are Lois LaMour, RA Heinlien, Peirs Anthony and many more. I will read and give an honest review of virtually any book, any genre although I don’t really care for zombies, Vampire Romance, or erotica.
I’m open to reading anything across all genres, but my favorites are historical fiction, romance, family saga, and children’s lit. (including picture books, MG and YA) I love reading solid stories with strong characters, interesting plots and lyrical, literary writing.
Madi is 8 years-old and reviews all of our children’s books.
I like to read books with lots of good pictures, and lots of action, and fun. I like funny books and superhero books.
At this time Madi is not old enough to have social media.
The naked Reviewers would like to give a special introduction for our next reviewer. She does things a little differently, and we like diversity. When she reviews your book, you will need to hang on tight. She never takes off her SPaG hat (spelling, punctuation and grammar). Just sayin’.
Corinne Morier (aka The Discerning Reader)
I enjoy a lot of different kinds of books, though my favorites are romance and fantasy, particularly high fantasy and sword-and-sorcery with romance elements. Think Ella Enchanted or the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede.
Some books that have really shaped my reading tastes are Eragon, the Abhorsen trilogy, and the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, which I continue to rave about to this day. My favorites (aside from those) are Lord of the Rings, Where Carpets Fly by Elise Edmonds, and The Golden Compass, though I have been known to dabble in non-fantasy genres including mystery and literary-ish fiction in the style of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, The Thief Lord, or Memoirs of a Geisha.
Bonus points to you if your story is set in Japan, features dragons or mermaids, or is a fairy tale retelling because I just eat those up. If you’ve got a healthy, swoon-worthy romance, a world of magic and nonhuman creatures, or even the next If You Follow Me, I’m probably going to be reading it, and of course, reviewing it with lots of memes and GIFs.
Give me a story that pulls me into the world the writer created and words that make me swoon, and I am a happy reader. Un-polished writing and a disregard for structural norms will do the opposite. My favorite genres are romance, women’s fiction, and literary fiction.
I’ll read anything that holds my interest. I like light-hearted reads with dry humour. I love historical fiction and of course anything with an environmental theme. I prefer not to read erotica or anything with blood and gore in it. I don’t normally read Sci-fi but I’ll happily give a critique a shot. I’m not into zombies.
Genres I prefer to Review: Paranormal Romance (No ghosts or zombies though, please.), Fantasy (all kinds), and Sci-Fi.
Flexible – I love fiction, if your book does not fall into one of the genres above but manages to grab my interest based on your short description, I’m likely to read it.
Genres I do not Review: Erotica, Non-fiction, and Children’s books.
BONUS POINTS: If a story has a strong female protagonist (or antagonist for that matter) and non-cringey romance (think ANTI-TWILIGHT), then I will have a hard time not reading a story.
