Submission Policy

Reviews on this site are on books I have personally collected for reading unless notated per the FTC’s ridiculous guidelines for further details.


I am currently accepting Review requests/submissions but reserve the right to be selective in which books I choose to review. Selective reviewing provides me the flexibility to experience a book and accurately compile my feelings toward it. Selective reviewing also allows time to read books from my own "To-Be-Read" pile with out fear of being overwhelmed or risking a "hurried" or sub-par reading of submitted work..

Should I choose not to review a submission, this should be recognized as a positive choice. Most books located here have high rateing/positive due to the fact I opted to read the book/graphic novel. This "opt-in" relationship with the work makes all the difference. As a reader, we all know that reading something you don't want to is a chore and taints the experience. If I believe I am not going to enjoy a submission, I just won't read it. It is that simple.

Reviews may not be exclusively positive, but they are guaranteed to be honest.

Genres I typically prefer:  General fiction, Historical Fiction, Literary Fiction, Thrillers, Horrow, Graphic Novels (not genre specific), Mysteries, Historical Non-Fiction, Memoires, a nice range of Chick-lit (not the gum :)) and a bit of YA fiction.

Preferred formats: I love pulp and love receiving actual books. It is a nice surprise in the mail that breaks up the humdrum of water bills and junk coupons. I read a number of eBooks, but ony use MOBI format. If you a book cannot be read on my Kindle, it will be discarded unless. Graphic Novels in PDF is perfectly appropriate.

Self published books are encouraged, but please do not be offended if my first statement to you is a reply email asking you to consider a 3rd party editorial service. This lack of external insight is the largest problem with home publishing. Editors are awesome, they exist for a reason.

Timeframe: Reading is not instantaneous nor guaranteed. I have a lot to read, so state your case and sell me! Get me excited! ARC copies given in advance will be given prioritization based on release timeframe. I will do what I can to have reviews completed prior to release, but the closer the deadline, the less likely this is to occur. I would be glad to participate in virtual book tours.

All reviews are typically published to my site, goodreads, librarything. Common alternate crossposts will be sent to amazon, Powells, and abe. Alternate locations will be considered if you ask in advance.

Other: Feel free to supply multiple copies of books if you are interested in promotional giveaways! I also like beer, drinking beer while reading, reading while drinking beer, and beering while beering.

Please contact me if you have additional questions.

Thanks! Jason.

AbyssRium (IDLE Idea Factory) + Strategy

Tap games are a dime a dozen in the mobile world. Most (as is AbyssRium) are free with ad-supported revenue and/or provide efficiency cheats in a store.

AbyssRium sets itself apart from other tap games by leveraging a unique concept. In a Synthetic ocean, you are the ever loving caretaker of a talking 'Coralite', which to the best of our perceptions is an underwater volcanic vent. The point of the game is to build strength and vitality for your volcano and its surrounding wild life; evolving animals and fortifying new types of coral. As each element of your world is enhanced, you elicit more vitality from the creatures for use in evolution.
It is easiest to think of your mobile device as the side of a giant fish tank, and you are going to be tapping on the glass. While you were told in life this was bad for an aquarium, in AbyssRium, your Coralite considers this loving attention. It smiles at you, gives on screen hints, and makes a slightly disturbing orgasm face every time y…

Renegade- Martin Luther, The Graphic Biography: Not about the awesome Styx or JayZ songs

October 31st, 1517: Young monk, Martin Luther nails documents to the front door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. On the pages were printed 95 theses defining man's relationship with God and religion. These were tumultuous times and blasphemy is a dangerous game for renegades and suicidal fools anxious to receive the lash.
2017 marks the five hundredth anniversary of this event.  Martin Luther rallied against the Pope and started a revolution in thought that shook the cornerstones of known Christianity. The writing and distribution of Luther's 95 theses, caused ripples in our social structures still in evidence.
