Review Policy

Thank you for taking a moment to read my review policy page!

At the moment, I am not accepting review requests but I am open to collaborating with fellow bloggers on other projects. Please read my collaboration policy for more information and then, if you’re interested, send me an email through my contact page.

I Review The Following Type Of Books:

  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Non-SFFH Speculative Fiction
  • Speculative Young Adult
  • SciFi or Fantasy Romance
  • Non-Fiction
  • Books On Writing
  • Geeky Cookbooks

Non-fiction reviews found here at Eclectic Little Dork are always framed in terms of writing and researching stories that fall within the realm of Speculative Fiction. Cookbooks are always framed in terms of how much someone who is a fan of a specific Speculative genre is likely to enjoy them.

Please note that I do read stories in the Romance genre, but I do not review ones without Speculative elements.

I Won’t Review The Following Type Of Books:

  • Non-Speculative Historical Fiction
  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Christian Fiction
  • Most Romance

I have nothing against the genres listed. In fact, Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres. And one of my favorite books of all time is an Inspirational Romance featuring a gay couple. But Eclectic Little Dork is a blog dedicated to Speculative Fiction. Writing it, reading it, and geeky lifestyle.

My Reviews Generally Include:

  • The post title as [book name] by [author name]
  • The title of the book
  • The author or editor of the book
  • The Publisher and release date/year
  • The genre of the book
  • How I got the book and the format in which I read it
  • A purchase link
  • A summary from GoodReads or the back of the book blurb
  • A picture of the book
  • A feature image relevant to the book
  • A Pinterest ready image
  • A witty review title
  • A short review on GoodReads
  • What I think of the plot
  • What I think of the characters
  • What I think of the prose or writing

It should be noted that the elements of the book review may change somewhat depending on the type of book being reviewed. Reviews of NonFiction, books on writing, and cookbooks include the everything but my opinion on the characters and plot. And reviews of anthologies or collections include a summary of my top three stories.
