We know authors need to have their books reviewed, and to do this they need reviewers, that brings you to us!!
Here at My Cat Reads we make a promise to always give an honest review. Now that means if we don't like something we will, in a respectful and tasteful manner, say what we don't like. We will not give a glowing review to a book we did not find satisfactory. If you want that kind of review we are sure there are many reviewers out there willing to give them, we just aren't one of them.
Now, if we got past that part, it brings us to what genres we will review. Here is where things get a bit tricky, we have kinda unusual taste in the books we read, but here is what we will accept:
-Historical Fiction (specializing in WWII themed ), also love to read anything having to do with the 1920s era, bring those on!!
-Psychological Thrillers/Mystery-now we don't really do the cozy mysteries unless there is a cat involved (gee, wonder who made that rule?), seriously if there is a cat will consider, if not strictly dark psychological thrillers please.
-Literary Fiction-by this we mean something with deep meaning, no fluff pieces please. Good coming of age novels are included if they are along the lines of A Separate Piece or Catcher in the Rye.
-Women's Fiction-same standards as Literary Fiction, no wishy washy please!
-Non-Fiction: anything dealing with WWII, memoirs, biographies dealing with it, or anything dealing with the 1920s-1930s eras are welcome.
-WHAT GENRES WE WILL NOT ACCEPT:
-will not accept Sci-fi
-will not accept fantasy
-will not accept romance
-will not accept erotica
-will not accept self-help
Now the types of books/formats we accept:
- Physical Books: We prefer these only because they are easier on the eyes, we are a bit on the older side and the computer screen does bother after awhile.
-e-books: if a physical book is not possible we will do e-books, we accept them for Nook & Kindle format, some PDF if I can get it downloaded to my Nook or Kindle, they will work sometimes other times they won't.
-We will not accept Audio books at any time, to us this is not reading, this is strictly our personal opinion and no one else.
-Scheduling: e-mail us with your request, when we come to an agreement we would like to have at least 30 days from the time we receive the book till we post. So if you want the review posted on or about the book's pub. date we need to have a copy in whatever form, 30 days prior to that date.
At the present time we are accepting review requests from Indie authors and self-published authors, as well as the larger presses. In the future if we get too bogged down this may change.
Every possible effort will be made to post your review on or around the agreed upon date, sometimes things happen and this isn't always possible, we promise it will be as close as humanly possible .

We hope to hear from you soon. Thank you, and happy reading!!
