* We're really sorry that we have to limit this offer to the UK & EU - it's just because of the time the postage takes between here & the USA.

We’re looking for some keen readers/site Members to help review the Nominated novels this year – this might help people to decide which of the Nominees to purchase & read, and maybe who gets their votes.

Here’s what you need to do:

Browse the listed Nominees so far & decide which of them you might like to read and review.

Let me (Debbie) or Dros, know which book you would like (one book at a time, per person, please) and let us know your postal address.

If we have it in from the publishers already, we’ll send it out asap. If we don’t have it yet, you can choose to wait until the book comes in, or choose another…

Send us back your review by email as soon as you can.

Here’s a few guidelines:

• A one-word review is not acceptable! (No matter what the word is!)

• We understand you might decide you DON’T like the book, and that’s okay, but please do give your reasoning/ideas as to why, rather than just saying the book is no good.

• Remember, you are reviewing the story, not the author – try to assess the book on its own merits, even if you have read everything the author has ever written!

SPOILERS: If possible, try to not give away important plots points over and above what is given on the book-jacket. However, if you do feel the need to expand, please clearly state there will be spoilers ahead, and people may want to stop at this point. If you’re unsure, just let me or Dros know & we’ll peruse your review first.

Of course, the book is yours to keep, FREE! HUZZAH!

And if other Members like your reviews, we’ll send you another novel to review on request.

There seems to be a slight issue with the Message system, so if you've sent a message to me in the last 10 - 15 mins, please be patient - I'll get back to you as soon as poss!

Kayla - I've got your message & will send you out "Heart's Blood" when it arrives from the publisher - thanks!

Hello Debbie,

great idea. I would like to add another proposal. As you may know there are also blogger member of DGLA who write and post reviews. Maybe it is worth to ask them whether they would like to add their reviews. In this case you could also include people who live outside UK & EU. And as "payment" you can offer a link to their blog.
Anyway I look forward to read the reviews.

I'm not sure if my messages to you are sending! They keep failing. If not could you let me know?

Hello Deborah,

of course I would like to review a book. I will send you a message with details as soon as the message system is available.

I've already read/reviewed a number of these books already for my blog, and have a number of others waiting to be read. Would that be helpful at all?

As you can see, the Message system is still down - I'll be contacting everyone via their pages... [sigh] of all the times for it to go...
