Welcome to the Book Review Policy Page. This policy page applies to my writing business J.P. Kyle’s Literary Services and it also applies to Ambiguous Pieces, which is my personal blog. While, at the time of writing this, I am not currently being paid to read and review books, however, my time is a valuable resource and the only person who is entitled to my time is me.
If you would like me to review your published novel, then you will need to be willing to provide contact details (name, website, link to your book), you will also need to send me a free copy of your book (PDF format preferably). Unsolicited requests to review books that require me to purchase the book in order to complete the review will be discarded.
