I write reviews on novels that have not yet been made available to the public. I read an average of one to two novels per week, mostly in the mystery/thriller and sci-fi/fantasy genres. I have never received payment for any review, so trust that what I put out is influenced by no one.
My rating process is fairly subjective, (as they should be) with some quantitative discernment given to: story-line, character development, scene development (visualization ease), cover art (relevance) and prose. Novels that have more than 45% internal-dialogue after 50% of reading, will not be finished, and usually get a zero rating. I create 3 reviews (or more) that I continually edit as I read a novel in order to give a fair assessment of the author’s body of work. Mostly in part to my over-reactive nature to positional authors.
I live in the mountains overlooking Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
