BOOK REVIEWS and PODCAST APPEARANCES

BOOK Review Services

Genres Reviewed

While some of my Friday Fun reviews go outside these genres somewhat, it’s usually because I’ve read a book I like, not because I’m seeking them out. So, please note the genres and the demographics. My readers and listeners are not YA or younger, so I don’t usually review books that are YA.

  • ADULT romance (subgenres include: rom-coms, contemporary romance, paranormal, fantasy romance, sci-fi romance, some historical)
  • Adult chicklit and women’s fiction with romantic elements (some call it relationship fiction–to me that’s a broader category, but whatever)
  • Adult fantasy: see my review for Bethanie Devors’ Seadrassian Chronicles
  • Adult sci-fi

“Friday Fun Reviews”

For a review: Fill out the contact request form below with: your name, email, the book’s info, dates of release or marketing campaign dates . If I choose to review, I will request an ARC (scroll down to the “Arc formats” section.) I read and review and decide if I want to do a Friday Fun Review on a book, which means it’s usually 4 stars or more. I don’t publish reviews 2 stars or under for someone who’s requested a review from me. Friday Fun Reviews are a Goodreads review that I post to my blog and send to my Nerdy Romantics Newsletter subscribers (and advertise on social media). To see examples, go to ymnelson.com/tag/book-reviews/

Book Chat Episode on Nerdy Romantics Podcast

I have 2 types of review episodes:

  1. Review in a book chat (episodes 5 and 10 are good examples)
  2. My own personal review–usually tied to a Nerdy Romantics theme/topic or a personal theme/topic (Episode 2 is a good example)

Want to have your or your client’s book reviewed? See “Want to be a Guest?” below.

Want to review someone else’s book? See “Want to Guest Host?” below

**ARC formats: Kindle eBook copies are great for me, but I am okay with paper copies as well. For book chats, my book chat friends like to be able to get selections from KU if they can, so they don’t have to pay a lot. They are just my friends reading because they want to read and talk about it, so they are purchasing on their own.

Want to be a guest (authors)?

Right now, I’m doing 2 types of episodes that involve guests:
  • INTERVIEW SPOT with author/about their book (haven’t done one of these yet)
  • GUEST SPOT/LISTICLE SPOT: Discussing another topic with a book promo mention (episode 15 is a good example.)

Please note the genres and the demographics. My listeners are not YA or younger, so I don’t usually review books that are YA.

  • ADULT romance (subgenres include: rom-coms, contemporary romance, paranormal, fantasy romance, sci-fi romance, some historical)
  • Adult chicklit and women’s fiction with romantic elements (some call it relationship fiction–to me that’s a broader category, but whatever)
  • Adult fantasy: see my review for Bethanie Devors’ Seadrassian Chronicles
  • Adult sci-fi

To be a guest on the podcast: Fill out the contact request form below with your name, email, the book’s info, dates of release or marketing campaign dates you want the podcast episode to release, and what type of episode you’re hoping to do. Ultimately I decide on the type of episode and release date, but it’s good to know what an author is envisioning if they’re requesting a review. **Please know that I’m currently scheduled about 3-4 months out.

Want to guest host (podcasters and enthusiasts)?

Right now, I’m doing 2 types of episodes that involve guest hosts:
  • CHAT SPOT: review a book, movie or TV show (episodes 5 and 10 are good examples)
  • LISTICLE SPOT: recommend a book around a topic or trope (episode 13 is a good example)

If you want to be on an upcoming show or have an idea about a show, fill out the request form below with your name, email, show idea or show you’d like to be a part of, contributions you can make during an episode (provide related topic products, provide expertise on a topic, etc.), any related podcasts or content streams, and availability for recording. Nerdy Romantics Podcast currently releases one episode per month (around the 15th), and I am scheduled about 3-4 months out right now.

All guests must sign a guest release prior to recording any episodes.

Let’s build something great together.
