Lilaina Osborn's Review Policy


I am an avid reader and have tried my hand at writing as well. I am moving into the world of reviews and if you would like me to review something please read the following criteria for what I will and will not review.

I accept the following genres (or any mix of the following)
- Fantasy
- Historical fiction
- Military
- Horror
- Post-Apocalyptic
- Mystery

I do not accept:
- Children's/Middle Grade
- Poetry
- Erotica
- Romance (books with romantic elements are fine, but if it is a purely love story I will not accept it)

Initial Inquiry
If your book falls into one of my accepted categories the next step is to send me an email at Emails should be formatted with the title of the book in the subject line and the name of the author as well as a synopsis of the book in the body of the email. If you are looking for a pre-release review or a specific date review please indicate this along with the date in the body as well. At this point do not send a copy of the book.

Once I have received your request I will email back with a yes or no. If it is a yes I will then ask for a PDF copy of your book. At this time this is the only file type I am accepting so please convert your book to a PDF file or I will not review it.

I publish reviews to, Goodreads and of course this blog. If you would like your review published elsewhere you can ask and I can accommodate the requests up to a maximum of 2 additional sites.

A good rule of thumb is to give me about 1 month from the date you send your book to me to review it. I do get many requests and I try to complete them all in a timely manner but there will be times when I have hit my limit for the month and will not be able to complete your review for that month. I will email you once I have the review finished and have posted it

I do cover reveals so if you have a cover you would like to post in anticipation of your book release let me know and I will work with you on posting it. I also do author/character interviews and teasers as well, just email me to inquire more about this and see if its right for you.

Also if you have a website send it to me so I can include it in my post, that is of course if you want to!

I do not accept money for reviews

  2. Greetings!
    My name is Wendy Saddler, with Authors Large and Small. We help promote up and coming authors, ranging from historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, Christian fiction, YA, suspense, and much more. We would like to introduce you to a very brilliant up and coming author, named John Fischer, entitled Fearless Faith: Living Beyond the Walls of Safe Christianity.
    Christian radio, Christian television, Christian schools, and Christian activism have created a cushion that protects believers from a world that often ridicules Christian beliefs and values. Is this the life of faith Christ's followers are called to? Christian leader and musician John Fischer challenges believers to break out of the safety zone and share Christ through acts of love, intelligent conversation, and genuine compassion. Readers will discover how they can...
    • meet and connect with the lost
    • face danger with excitement by depending on Jesus
    • understand what it truly means to be "set apart"
    Fearless Faith offers the encouragement and tools Christians need to step out in faith and point people to the salvation found in the Jesus.

    About the Author
    John Fischer has been mixing his unique combination of singing, speaking, and humor for a variety of audiences for more than thirty years. A bestselling writer, John is the author of Fearless Faith, 12 Steps for the Recovering Pharisee (Like Me), Real Christians Don't Dance, and the award-winning Saint Ben. Fischer graduated from Wheaton College and later served as Artist in Residence at Gordon College in Massachusetts.

    Given your web site/blog's focus I think a review of these books would be a good fit. Please let me know if this interests you and I'll have the authors send you a copy. If you have any questions, please contact me at, or
