Your Shelf Life Book Reviews –– Review Policy

3 Dec

I’ve gotten so many requests from authors to review their books that I feel it necessary to write a bit explaining Your Shelf Life’s review policy. First off, I am a writer, not a reviewer. Book reviews do show up on Your Shelf Life. These are reviews of books I’ve found myself or which good friends have recommended. I do not take other books for review.

I’m sorry to have to refuse your request. I know how hard it is to have your book reviewed in the beginning, but I’m a writer, not a reviewer. My time–like yours–is very valuable. A search of the ‘net will reveal many reputable sites that do take books for review. Some may even specialize in your genre. Keep looking for reviewers! You will succeed.

I had no idea what a forensic accountant was until reading this novel. (Such an accountant tracks down missing money in cases of financial wrong-doing.) I certainly had no idea that a story about a forensic accountant could be exciting, suspenseful, and scary.

Forensic accountant Katarina (Kat) Carter is called in when five billion dollars goes missing from a Canadian corporation mining diamonds. She can’t figure out why they called her. She’s the least important investigator of her kind in town, and everyone believes the missing CFO did it, anyway. But Kat needs the money, so she takes the job.
