Review Policy

The aim of Crowvus is to bring good quality literature to the public's attention. This blog will concentrate mainly on self published works, or books from Indie publishers.

Genres

I'm very open about what I like to read, but I generally prefer MG, YA, historical fiction, or something with a Scottish theme.

That being said, I will read all genres if the book sounds like something I could get my teeth into.

I don't mind a bit of swearing, but if there's a swear word on every page, I probably won't gel with it!


How to Request a Review

Firstly, I'm very sorry if we don't get back to you quickly. We all have other jobs and cannot always spend as much time as we'd like on Crowvus.

If you would like to request a review, send an email to the_team@crowvus.com (Clemency) and write "Book Review - [book title]" in the subject.

In the email, please send:

Book title
Author's name
When it will be/was published
Genre
Blurb
Links to where the book is for sale
Book format (is it an e-book, or hardcopy?)

If I can review your book, I will then get in touch with you and ask for a copy, and a picture of the front cover (for the blog post).

Occasionally, I won't be able to review a book. Usually this is just because of time constraints, but if this is the case, I might contact you about an author interview. This would give a bit of extra exposure and might even introduce some new fans to your work!

If you are needing any more book reviewers, please check out the Indie View. It's a great website specifically for authors who are self- or independently published. We need to stick together, folks!


Format

I will accept paperbacks and e-books (I do have a kindle).


Where will it be Posted?

I will post the review on this blog, on Amazon, and on Goodreads. If you'd like me to post it anywhere else, let me know!

Check out the books I enjoy writing at my website: www.clemencycrow.co.uk


Happy Writing!

"Through Time to London" by Brindy Wilcox

What started as a normal day for Brandy & Brinkley changed beyond anything they dreamed of when Jed visited. The two spaniels were used to having little adventures every time they left the house, but nothing prepared them for that morning. 
1665 London was a dangerous place for dogs, so when the two brothers found themselves suddenly in the middle of the plague-ridden city it was a race against time to escape the clutches of the street dogs, the perils of the rats and the dangers of the dogcatchers. 
Would they be able to survive in their new surroundings and would they be able to find their way back to the safety of their own home?
Through Time to London is the first in a series that follows the adventures of Brandy and Brinkley, two time-travelling Cavalier Spaniels, who are met with new challenges in their search for the way home.



Firstly, I love dogs! I have a spaniel - a cheeky Sprocker by name of Orlando - so I love reading and hearing about the adventures of other dogs, fiction…

NANOWRIMO - Beginnings

Friday 1st November 2019 - Beginnings
No matter what anyone tells you, your beginning is spectacularly important. No pressure or anything, but if a reader doesn’t gel with your first line, your second must be amazing.The general rule of thumb is, the further a reader is expected to go to find the story, the easier it will be to lose them.
Starting a book can seem a bit like a rocky, uphill struggle - but it's worth it!


One of the most well-known beginnings:
In the beginning was the word
It’s difficult to rival that one!
But it’s a statement of truth (let’s leave fact out of it, as most of use NaNoWriMo writers are in the business of fiction), and that’s what most of my first lines are.
Petrovia Lodge was all that could be expected of a country house for a family of a not inconsiderable income.
Day’s Dying Glory

In a country at peace, men of war are confined to their homes and families.
Beneath Black Clouds and White

The springy heather underfoot was the only thing which coaxed on the falte…

Book Tour - Total Blueprint for World Domination by Jolene Stockman

It's great to part of this book's journey!

When my parents bought me my sewing machine many years ago, the gift tag read "believe in your ability and this will become your best friend" or something to that ilk. This book reminded me a little of that - it gives you the matter-of-fact motivational speech needed by some many youngsters.



"Total Blueprint for World Domination" is an inspirational book for young people. Young people need to think big, and believe in themselves, and this book certainly helps with that!

There are motivational speeches and activities gallore. Some of the activities have been seen before, but others are new to me. Occasionally, books heap activities onto the reader like nobody's business, but this book gets it just right. Not too many, and not too few. The reader is left feeling like they can take part without worrying about the time!

And did I mention the graphics? The design of the book is eye catching and, in itself, inspirat…
