Hi, my name is Kim and I’m an attention whore. I write! I read! I slither on my belly like a reptile! Okay not that last one.
Formerly a reviewer for Nocturne Romance Reads, I decided to forge ahead on my own. My interests run mostly to historical, contemporary, and erotic romance novels when reading. When writing I generally stick to “unfinished” as my genre.
I have one published novella, Harry of Crack(opens new window to Amazon). Being a book reviewer, I fully expect to be ripped to shreds so have at it.
I am a grown up and have a real job. I am in my 40s so I’m no longer weird. I am now officially considered eccentric and I’m embracing it. If you see me speaking netspeak, I’m mocking you and/or my subject. In classic fashion, I have two cats – Zoe and Penny Lane. I had planned to become a crazy cat lady, but then the cats brought fleas into the house and I’ve decided two were enough for one household. Same reason I only had two kids. I got married in 2015! I hear my husband in the other room talking to the cats about how they can’t leave their toys laying around wherever they feel like it and I know I picked the other half of my heart out of the crowd.
Anyway, here I am. Here you are. Let’s not let it get weird, yeah?
Want me to review your book? Well, I can’t make any promises. I don’t read anything with werewolves or vampires in them (ask me about the unfortunate incident involving my college aged brother when I was 12 and Sammy Terry sometime). I’ll make an exception for ghosts, but they have to be nice ghosts not stabby ghosts. I’ll read a fantasy or a science fiction occasionally, but it’s got to be super special.
That said, I don’t publicly trash books (there was that one time in college….). If I like your book, I’ll post a review here. If I don’t like it, I’ll probably put the appropriate number of stars on Amazon and Goodreads and call it a good job. I’ll occasionally point out stuff that really irks me if I think other readers will have a bad experience, but not here. I live by the Grandma Rule. Grandma said if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
Since I’m not getting paid for reviewing anything, my time is my own. If you send me a book to review, I’ll get to it. Don’t nag. If you have a special circumstance I’ll take that into consideration as to where to put it in the line up. I try to review on a first come, first serve basis. At any given time I can have up to five books in my Kindle “Review” folder. Patience.
