Contact Me

PLEASE READ the following information before sending me a request for a review.

I am accepting review requests on a very limited basis. (Currently scheduling three and four months out though)

My Preferred Genres are:

  • Christian fiction
  • historical fiction
  • mystery/suspense
  • romantic suspense
  • clean romance
  • contemporary romance

I occasionally will review:

  • nonfiction
  • Christian living
  • fantasy (think along the lines of fairy tales, Harry Potter, Sarah Addison Allen)
  • YA
  • children’s books

I am not at all interested in reviewing:

  • erotica
  • books which contain prolific amounts of sexual situations or explicit sexual situations
  • books which contain a good deal of profanity
  • horror
  • paranormal (I may make exceptions for angels or even ghosts but please don’t send me your vampire book.)

I promise to consider every book I receive (it may take a while though). In my reviews, I strive to always be courteous and find something positive to say but I will be honest. If I didn’t like the book, I will say so but I will also encourage readers to decide for themselves.

If, after enduring that mega-long (but necessary) discourse, you would still like to send me your book, I would be so happy to take a look at it! Thank you in advance for reaching out to me. I consider myself extremely blessed to be able to do this “book thing” I love so very much 🙂

I had a nifty contact form here. But then I discovered it was being (not) helpful and filtering out some of my messages. So… until further notice … please message me at :

    I’m so glad I found your blog! You read almost all the same books as I do and when I saw you reviewed The Pathfinder’s series by Lori Benton (AKA my all time FAVORITE books), I was sold. I’ll be reading/following your blog from now on.

    Dear Carrie,
    I very much enjoy entering your giveaways via Raffle Copter. I don’t do Instagram, Twitter, etc. etc. Does this cut down my chances on entering?
    Also, if Raffle Copter would only do 10 entries, that would be fine with me. Anymore than 10 and I don’t have the time to sit and do each one.

    • Carrie

      Hi Janet, thanks! I can’t control (unfortunately) the Rafflecopter giveaways hosted by tours so sometimes there are more than 10 and many more Instagram/Twitter entry options. On the ones I host myself, there is only one entry that increases your chances by having Twitter – and that’s tweeting about the giveaway. Otherwise, you have many other chances that don’t require those 🙂

  12. Marti

    Carrie-I appreciate the offer of a free book- but I am not set up for that. Please pass it on to the next in line. Thank you. God bless

  13. emilee

    Hi Carrie, I try to enter as many giveaways as I have time for. When I come back to the giveaway to tweet and post on any social media besides Twitter the Giveaway always says I have 25 out of 27 total entries. It will go up that day to 27 but the following day it goes back to 25. So my question is, am I getting credit for returning to the giveaway daily and if not could you let me know if I’m doing something wrong? I hope this question makes since. Thanks!

    Dear Carrie,

    Our blog tour has been postponed and lengthened; it’s now from November 1-15.

    As the Christmas season approaches, most of us think of the birth of baby Jesus, and we try to make it more meaningful for us and our families.
    Here’s how you can help your readers with this.

    Would you please be willing to review this 26 page booklet from Cedar Fort Publishing about the Nativity and post it on your blog during our blog tour, November 1-15? If so, please tell us your choice of days. THANKS! Neilkjohnson2@gmail.com.

    We’ll send you a complimentary copy. We’ll also furnish a “giveaway copy” for the winner of your readers. Your other readers may purchase this booklet online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, plus at bookstores. Its cost is only $4.99.

    A New Dramatization of The Nativity Pageant
    Would you rather read the nativity story or be a part of it? Using simple stage directions, easy-to-find props, two narrators, and a script that’s straight from the scriptures, this book helps you act out the familiar story of the first Christmas for your church, family, or friends. Start a new tradition this season with a simple pageant you’ll look forward to performing year after year.

    Brief Summary
    The Nativity Pageant starts with Angel Gabriel visiting Mary and ends with Joseph following the angel’s warning and taking his little family to Egypt, where Jesus will be safe. It takes about 15 minutes to perform, plus it has the lyrics to four traditional Christmas hymns, if people wish to sing them.

    Brief Endorsements of The Nativity Pageant

    “Easy to perform and impactful in its simplicity and beauty.”
