About April

I'm a librarian, reader, and writer whose main goal in life is to be able to swim in books the way Scrooge McDuck swims in money. Although my reading choices will always be wildly eclectic and I never plan on leaving any genre unexplored, my favorite reads tend to be Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Gay Romance, or Historical Fiction. You can e-mail me at inspector[dot]librarian[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Wow! These look excellent….if you don’t mind saying….how do you get so many review copies? Cheers 🙂

      They do. Hopefully I’ll get around to a lot of them soon! For some review copies, I try to contact publicists. For others, it’s just that publicists have added me to mailing lists and I get sent books for various genres.

        How do you find/contact publicists? If you want me to go jump that’s fine…I’m just curious. I love YA books and would love to get review copies as it takes a while to get them in the library. Cheers 🙂

        I just look at publisher websites for contact info and e-mails. Then I let them know about my blog and ask if it’s possible to get an ARC or review copy.

        Good luck! 🙂

        Hey thanks April, I’ll try that! You’ve put me onto a bunch of great series/books. I really appreciate the advice! Cheers.
