Welcome to Pass Me That Book!
My name is Ria Potter and I am a prolific reader/blogger/reviewer. I attempt to post a review of a book a day,. I review anything from fantasy to romance to lgbt fiction. I’m an honest reviewer, indie supporter, and book blog supporter. This page is meant not just to be a bio, but also a contact page and a review policy page for publishers/authors searching for a description of what I’m interested in, if I’m accepting of arcs at the moment, and how to get into contact with me.
I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING ARC COPIES.
This means if you wish to send me arcs, you may. That does not mean that I will automatically accept or review your book, though generally I do if it is interesting to me. There are just too many requests coming in for me to accept each and every one of them, sorry.
FORMATS I ACCEPT: PDF, Mobi files, Hardcover, and Paperback, as well as through Amazon
Shipping Address for Physical Copies:
3211 South 163rd Road,
Bolivar, MO, USA
Favorite Genres (these requests will go to the top of my consideration pile): Fantasy, YA (Young Adult), and Science Fiction
Secondary Genres: Romance, Historical, Graphic Novels/Comics, Middle Grade, Mystery/Thriller
I DO NOT ACCEPT: Self Help, Christian Fiction, Westerns (unless it’s a weird fantasy western: i.e. The Dark Tower by Stephen King can be classified as weird fantasy western), Religious Fiction of any kind, Poetry, Nonfiction, and/or horror
I’d Most Like To Read: I really loved Martha Well’s Murderbot books, and I’m a big fan of happy endings or books that feature HEA (happily ever afters). Lately I’ve found myself reading quick menage romance books that have a large science fiction element, but I also enjoyed The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James, Arabella of Mars by David Levine, and City of Lies by Sam Hawke. I love stories that feature LGBT characters in a positive manner, as well as disabled characters and ownvoices. Send me your highlanders, your non-sparkly vampires, and your ‘fans of Sarah J. Maas will like this strong female lead book’. I’m generally not a picky reader, and will sometime even suggest if your book needs an editor or more beta readers to help with plot as well! (Note: I am NOT an editor, nor beta reader. I spot errors, but am terrible at editing my own books, I highly suggest not letting me edit yours, lol.)
Time Frame for a turn-around of a review really depends on how long the book is, and if I really enjoyed it. If I liked/loved it, I’ll review it very quickly within the week that I got the book. If I hated it, then I will still review the book, but it might take a bit longer to post the review. Apologies, but I’m still working out the kinks in regards to reviewing. Typically I try to post reviews within a month of receiving the book at the very least.
Do I Respond to Every Review: no, because I receive an insane amount of emails regarding review requests. It’s simply too much to try to respond to each and every author/blogger/publisher/media rep to keep up with. I try, but then it just makes me cranky and annoyed, especially when they assume that I’ll automatically respond to them/you. Sorry, but this is a firm decision. You may send another email requesting again, and I might change my mind and respond, or I might not.
PLACES I POST REVIEWS: I primarily post reviews here on my blog because they remain firmly attached to my blog and don’t get deleted like Amazon is wont to do. I still post to Amazon, as well as Goodreads, and I promote books on my Facebook page and Instagram. But I do not post reviews anywhere else, because it is too much hassle in keeping up with multiple accounts at once. If you wish for me to post elsewhere that isn’t listed here, you may have spend money in doing so. I have not reached a firm decision in that regard as of yet, however.
Please visit here to contact me or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m also available through my blog of course.
I look forward to seeing your requests!
Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
