Book Review Policy

Please note that at this time I am not accepting any book review requests. Thank you!


I am delighted to accept books for review consideration on The Merry Wife of Windsor. If you are sending me a book request, you acknowledge and accept the following terms.

The eReader that I utilize is the Kindle Voyage and, as such, I will require kindle-compatible files (.mobi).


I, as the book reviewer, possess the right accept and reject books on a trial-by-trial basis. Please be advised that if you do send me a request to review your book, that does not guarantee that I will review it.


Please be advised that if I choose to read your book, that does not necessarily mean that the review will be a positive one. As a book reviewer, I owe it to my readers to speak honestly and as clearly as I can. The Merry Wife of Windsor (and all book reviews written therein) is by no means a vehicle to advertise you or your book.


If I choose to review your book, please be advised that I review books on my own time. I will not accept deadlines and I will not be rushed. With a busy schedule, my time is precious. If I receive a proposal with a deadline date, it will automatically be rejected.


I prefer for all proposals to be sent through the contact form on The Merry Wife of Windsor. However, I will accept proposals through my email Wifeofwindsor@gmail.com.


The genre that I best prefer is Historical Fiction. I prefer Historical Fiction with a female protagonist. Please see the list below of preferred literary genres:

  • Historical Fiction/Historical Women’s Fiction
  • Historical Mysteries
  • Autobiographies
  • Biographies
  • Cozy Mysteries
  • Cultural Fiction
  • Historical Nonfiction
  • Memoirs (Particularly ones including different religions and different cultures)
  • Religious Fiction (Amish-centered novels)
  • Time Travel
  • Young Adult Fiction

I would be happy to take part in a book blog tour but I would need at least 8 days (after receiving the book) to write up a review. In addition, if you are interested in my joining a book reviewing team, I welcome those opportunities but that does not mean that I will automatically accept.


You can find me on Goodreads, Netgalley, and the Historical Novel Society.


I am very receptive to Audiobooks as I enjoy them immensely. In addition, they speed up the reviewing of a book considerably.


Thank you so much for your interest in The Merry Wife of Windsor!
