Review Policy

I focus on feminist and multicultural writing, especially immigrant fiction. Do get in touch with me if you think your work fits my interests. I may be contacted at niranjana (dot) iyer (at) gmail (dot) com. Please note that I charge a small reading fee for full-length blog reviews. The fee is for my time and energy spent in reading the book, and does not guarantee a positive review!

I do not review poetry, prescriptive non-fiction, chick lit, erotica, thrillers or inspirational/religious work. As of 2018, I’ve begun focussing more on Young Adult and Middle Grade writing. I usually do not review books I dislike, as I prefer to spend my energy promoting work I admire 🙂

Please note that I  do not usually participate in promotional book tours. I do not conduct author interviews for my blog; I publish them in Bookslut. Authors I’ve interviewed include Minal Hajratwala, Camilla Gibb, Sheela Chari and Saladin Ahmed. (Update: Bookslut has now ceased publication 😦 ) I sometimes write feature articles about authors for Herizons, a Canadian feminist magazine. Canadian authors I’ve interviewed include Nalo Hopkinson, Dorothy Palmer, and Ava Homa.
