Review Policies

1. My reviews are always my opinion and should not be understood as fact or the opinions of the authors whose book I’m reviewing.

2. While I try to point out positives, I will always be honest in my reviews. That means that sometimes I can sound harsh. It’s not to be mean, just honest. At least when I say I love a book, you know I’m being 100% honest.

3. I do my best to avoid spoilers, but if a book is in a series you should expect details from previous books to show up in the review. Otherwise, you should be safe.

4. I do not receive any monetary compensation for my reviews. I do accept copies of books in exchange for honest reviews of them.

I’m sorry – I’ve had to stop accepting reviews for a little while. I will update this page when that changes. These will still be my policies though. Thanks!

To  Request A Review

Either fill out the Contact Me form or mail me at: with the following information:

2. Please attach a link to your book on Goodreads, Shelfari or Amazon so that I can look into it.

3. Tell me why you think I would enjoy the book AND why you think it’s a good fit for Fantasy is More Fun. I want to make sure it’s in both our best interests that I review your book – you want a review from someone who will like it and I want to enjoy what I read 🙂

4. When do you need the review done by? If you’re flexible let me know, as sometimes my calendar may be the biggest factor in why I can/cannot review your book.

5. Where do you want the review?  I’ll obviously be posting it to my blog and I usually post my reviews to Goodreads as well. Shelfari, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble are a bit more hit and miss for me, but if you want it there let me know.

6. OH – and if your book is part of a series (and not the first book), let me know. Have I reviewed the earlier books on my blog? If not, will you provide me with them?


Thanks for following these procedures to help me answer your requests more quickly and efficiently!

    Hello Berls, one of your tweets caught my eye, and I followed the link to find your site. I agree 100% with your review policy, and when and if you have the time – and the inclination – I’d be delighted if you could review “The Griffin Cryer”. I can supply in mobi or PDF. Here’s the Amazon link, – it tells the story of a young girl who discovers she has a very unusual talent when she accidentally summons a griffin from another dimension.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Best wishes,

      Hi Julia,
      My apologies for not getting back to you earlier. Somehow I didn’t get a notification of this comment and I don’t check this page often. I think The Griffin Cryer is the sort of book that I could really enjoy and it would be my pleasure to review it. Can you send me an email at so we can work out scheduling and details?
