How to get reviewed

If you'd like to have your book reviewed here on Erotica For The Big Brain, please read and follow these simple guidelines:

1. Understand, I cannot accept every request. There simply aren't enough hours in a week, and I have other committments as well as a regular daily writing schedule of my own to maintain. Thus, I reserve the right to limit the number of books I will accept for review in any given month to no more than two. (I may take more or fewer as the demands of my schedule dictate.)

2. I will only review titles for which I can give an honest three stars at minimum.

3. As such, I am looking for stories that are exceptional on many levels. For a start they must be well written, displaying proficiency in grammar, spelling and punctuation. Texts need to be properly formatted for fiction with standard paragraph indentation and consistent margins. Beyond that, there should be a compelling story with relatable well-rounded characters in a vibrant erotic atmosphere. I am consistently impressed (and very often turned on) by originality, craftsmanship and professionalism. Dazzle me!

4, If your book has been published on Amazon Kindle, send me a link to its product page so I can check out the "Look Inside" sample. You can reach me via e-mail at

5. Assuming I like what I see in your sample, I will ask you to send me the .mobi file for the book so I can forward it to my Kindle. This is important; I have a visual impairment and it is extremely difficult for me to read PDF files and some small-type hardcopies. I prefer to read on my Kindle Touch as I can easily adjust font size, Also, since I take copious notes while reading, the Kindle's bookmark feature is a huge time-, labor-, and life-saving device.

6. I will notify you when the review goes live, Generally, I post reviews simultaneously here on Erotica For The Big Brain and the Amazon site. I can also post the review (with additional editing) to the Barnes & Noble site, depending on the title's availablity there. (Apparently B&N will only calculate star ratings from people who buy the title on their site. The text of the review, with the star rating appears on its own, but the star-rating is not counted in the book's total.)

7. Authors may freely quote, copy or repost any of the reviews appearing on Erotica For The Big Brain in whole or in part for promotional or educational purposes. Please be sure to make proper attribution of any quote or repost (e.g. "review by Terrance Aldon Shaw, Erotica For The Big Brain").

So, if this sounds reasonable, send me your links and we'll see what's what.
