Submit a book review!

June 18, 2012 1 comment

Have you written a review of a fantasy or sci-fi book?  I’m willing to consider publishing it.

PLEASE!  SERIOUS REVIEWS ONLY!  If the write up is nothing except you gushing with repeated OMGS, endless praise for how it the novel was “the best book ever!!!!” or, on the other side of the spectrum, needless bashing, I don’t want it.

What did you like?  What didn’t you like?  What were the strengths?  Were there any weaknesses?  Be honest, not a kiss ass or jack ass.

If you have a blog, twitter account, facebook page, etc I’ll give you a link back to you sites.  Within reason of course.  I’m not going to link to 10 different pages and profiles!  So let’s keep the links back to three or less ok?

I am especially interested in helping to promote independent and self-published authors.

Authors, please don’t review your own books and submit them!  Please!  I’m begging you NOT to do this.  But if you know someone that read it and like it, then by all means encourage them to submit a review to me at [email protected]

I am not promising that I will publish all reviews I recieve, simply soliciting them.  Nor am I saying they will go up within a minute, an hour or even a few days of them hitting my inbox.  What I am saying is that I will consider them if you want to submit them.

And in case anyone is wondering, no, I WON’T hold you to my stringent grading standards for books whereby almost nothing gets five stars.  You can have your own opinion on that matter.

“Outlines, like rules, were made to be broken. No plan, or plot outline, survives first contact with the enemy (i.e. myself). And when all else fails, just write.” – Mathias Cavanaugh

See, this is why I picked Mathias Cavanaugh

Why did I pick Mathias Cavanaugh for my pen name? Well, this is why.

This site has not even been up for a whole day and it is already #1 in Google for the name out of nearly 1.6 million results (without using quotes). But I figured it would be that easy. Now I just need people searching for me.

Thanks for stopping by. In the coming days, weeks, months and hopefully years, I will be posting here to discuss my progress in trying to get my fantasy and science fiction works published.

I am an established author, although all my previous work is in other fields of writing and is under other names.

Yes, it is true. “Mathias Cavanaugh” is not my real name. Listen, if you had a name as common and boring as mine you would use a pen name too.

To learn more about me and this site, please visit my about page and do not forget to check back often to see what is going on with my pursuit of being a published author in the genres of fantasy and science fiction.
