Request a Review or Editing/Proofreading of Manuscript

I am happy to review any books with the exception of extreme violence, excessive profanity, or promotion of hate. I request you send your books in the epub format.

I do this part-time, so my TBR list for reviews of both published and unpublished work is quite lengthy. So, I am now giving estimates of late-spring, 2020, to read and review books.

I do not accept .pdf versions of books because:

I cannot make notes or highlight passages on a .pdf, which means I need to keep a pen & notepad handy while reading. Then I have to transcribe my notes for you. It really slows down the reading process.

For authors who desire proofreading and/or editing of manuscripts in progress:

I will accept the work by electronic mail, and request that it be in a Word document, in Times New Roman, 12 point font. I will make my corrections/suggestions in red for your ease in finding them. I will provide a Letter of Agreement (LOA) stating the number of days or date by which I can get the work product back to you. I require a money order or cashier’s check for one-half of the funds owed to accompany your signed LOA.

To request a review or proofreading/editing of a manuscript, please contact me at grumpybookreviewer@gmail.com.

Please do not leave links to any website or promotional material in the comments below. They will be removed.
