Contact & Review Policy

Authors & Publishers: I would love to read and review your crime fiction, thriller, or mystery novel! Please read my Review Policy first, then fill out the contact form, including a brief synopsis of your novel, and I will respond as soon as possible.

Readers: Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or comments! I always love meeting fellow crime fiction fans and discussing current reads.


CBTB accepts review requests for crime fiction, mystery, suspense, and thriller titles. Review requests may come from publishing houses of any size, agents, and authors. To be considered for coverage on CBTB's Instagram, I do request a physical copy - ARCs are needed for scheduling purposes. 

Sending me a review copy does not guarantee that I will post a review, but I do evaluate each book I receive. I do not charge for book reviews. Please also note that due to the high volume of requests I receive, I may not be able to respond to every email - but I do read and evaluate every single review request.
