For Authors

Read about our Review Request, Guest Post, Excerpt, & Giveaway policies

Review Request Policy
Genres Reviewed: Young Adult, Mystery, Paranormal
There is not a "I only review super new books" policy, so feel free to submit your latest release as well as any previous releases.

Time Frame: It currently takes us 1-2 months to read and review your novel.
If you have an upcoming release, please submit your review request in early so we can reserve a review date for you in advance.

Rating System: All books are rated on a 5 star scale.
However, we only post book reviews that have received 4 stars or higher. This blog will remain a positive place that showcases fantastic novels from outstanding authors. If your novel falls below four stars, you will receive your review personally via e-mail and can decide if you would like to post the review on Hypnos.

Accepted Formats: PDF is preferred, print is accepted.

Series: We review books in a series in order.

Associate Reviewers:
Your novel may be reviewed by an associate reviewer. Associate reviewers are intelligent and, more importantly, love reading books. I approve each review before it is posted online. All associate reviewers have been advised that any book sent to them is for review purposes only, and it is illegal to share or sell any book received. Piracy will not be tolerated.

Reviews will be posted on Amazon and GoodReads. Twitter tweets and Facebook posts will also be made about your review.
