Are you an author, publisher, publicist, or some related entity who’d like to pitch me books, book reveals, giveaways, or similar book blog events? If so, here’s my basic information:
Reader group: Children’s, Young/New Adult, Adult – any age group
Genres: Science fiction, Fantasy, Graphic novels, Non-fiction (medicine, psychology, science, history)
Author and format preferences:
Format: I prefer e-books (kindle format, if possible) – print or audio is also acceptable (For print, know that my address is not in the US)
Authors: Self-published is acceptable (so long as your book matches my other preferences)
How Fat Robot reviews stuff:
I use a 1-5 rating scale where 5 is highest. I try to put books into a wider genre context, comparing and contrasting with other authors and titles in the relevant genre/sub-genre. My text will usually aim for an audience similar to myself: Speculative fiction devotees who are more than likely to participate in other aspects of geek culture with matching t-shirts and hand signs.
Outside of the I, Fat Robot blog, I post book stuff on Goodreads and Twitter. I may also do amazon/audible reviews, or post to tumblr and instagram.
- I don’t read erotica or explicit romance
- I won’t spend my time on something that needs a proof-reader more than it needs an actual reader
- If, by any chance, you happen to be looking for a Scandinavian genre reader/reviewer: Yes, hello, I read Norwegian/Danish/Swedish.
