Author Spotlight

Sometimes, I will pick an author to spotlight. If you want to see a particular author spotlighted, send an email to with the subject Author Spotlight and the name of the author. Please include a link to where I can find more information about the author. Like the Book of the Week feature, this is a free service and not all authors will be featured.

Book of the Week

Promoting and marketing your books can be a chore. I decided to add a Book of the Week feature to the blog.

Sometimes, I will pick books at random. Other times, I will accept submissions from authors and readers. If you would like to have a book featured, send an email to with the subject Book of the Week and the title of the book. Include a very short blurb (no more than 180 characters) for use on the website and any other information you might want. This could be anything from a short guest blog post to your bio or anything else you think will help you sell your book.

Note: The book be available for the Kindle. Not all books will be featured. I reserve the right to refuse any book or author. Currently, the Book of the Week feature is a free service.

Submission Status: Open



This information is listed for when (and if) submissions re-open. I only review review science fiction and fantasy ebooks available for the Kindle. If you are interested in having your book reviewed by me, email me at Please put the title of your book in the subject line of the email and the word “Review”. If you are a member of Kindle Boards, you can send a private message to Kyrin with your request.

After I receive a request, I will download a sample of the book and read it. I will then post my first impressions based on the sample. If I am interested in reading more, I’ll let you know and add the book to my list. Once I am done reading it, I will post a review here and on Amazon.

Keep in mind, I am not a professional book reviewer. I read when I have free time. I have a long list of books to read so it might be a while before I can get to your request. I do accept review copies and Smashwords coupons. I can’t guarantee that I will read and review everything sent to me.

Tips and Tricks

If you have a kindle tip that you would like to share, email me at Please put the “Tips and Tricks” in the subject line of the email. If you’re a member of Kindle Boards, you can send a private message to Kyrin.



The best way to support this blog and my Kindle book habit is to purchase one of my books. That said, spreading the word about this blog and my books goes a long way. If you like one of my books, please leave a review and let your friends know about it.

Thanks, Richard
