For book reviews, please note that I would read almost anything but prefer horror, post-apocalyptic, fantasy, western, literary fiction, thriller, mystery and historical fiction. I may read the occasional YA or even romance, but I’m not a fan of the genre so that’s a wild shot. Usually I can tell after a few pages if I’m going to like a book or not and I will tell you right away.

  1. Dear Delia,

    I would like to submit my novel THE VAGABOND VICAR for you to review. It is a newly released regency-set historical.

    I’m including details about the book below. If you would like to read it I will send the file through in whichever format you require, or email the .mobi file to a Kindle email address.

    Yours sincerely,
    Charlotte Brentwood

    Title: The Vagabond Vicar
    Author: Charlotte Brentwood
    Release Date: 15 October 2014

    William Brook is an idealistic young cleric, desperate to escape dreary England for a mission adventure in exotic lands. It’s his worst nightmare come true when he is posted to a parish in a small backwater village, populated with small-minded people and husband-hunting mamas. He’s determined not to form any ties and to escape the country as an independent single man.

    A free spirit, Cecilia Grant is perfectly content to remain in her family home in Amberley village – when she’s not wandering the countryside at all hours painting. Marriage options are few, but that won’t stop her mother from engineering a match with one of the ruling family’s sons. Cecilia attempts to win the man, but what is it about the new vicar and his brooding ways that is so appealing? Could he be the only one who has ever really understood her, and can she discover what he is running away from?

    As William struggles not to fall in love with the lady’s intoxicating beauty and mysterious eccentricity, he finds himself drawn into the lives of the villagers, despite their best efforts to alienate the newcomer. When he makes it clear he’s not sticking around, Cecilia strives to restrain her blossoming feelings for him. Just when it seems love may triumph, dark secrets are revealed in Amberley and a scandal from William’s past may see the end of not only his career, but his chance at finding an everlasting love.

    The Vagabond Vicar is an unashamedly romantic historical novel you’ll fall in love with. If you love Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, can’t get enough of Downton Abbey or Cranford, or just prefer old-fashioned boy-meets-girl stories, try reading Charlotte Brentwood.

    Sensuality level: sweet (only kissing)
    Please note, although there is some mention of religious subject matter due to the hero’s occupation, this is not an “inspirational” novel.

    Author bio:
    Charlotte developed serious crushes on a series of men from age fifteen: Darcy, Knightley, Wentworth and Brandon. A bookworm and scribbler for as long as she can remember, Charlotte always dreamed of sharing her stories with the world.

    Earning a degree in communication studies, she was seduced by the emerging digital world and has since worked with the web and in marketing. She lives in beautiful Auckland, New Zealand.

    When she’s not toiling at her day job, writing or procrastinating on the Internet, Charlotte can be found snuggling with her cat Sophie, warbling at the piano, sipping a hot chocolate or enjoying the great outdoors.

    Hello Delia,

    I like your blog! I noticed that you are a Reacher fan. So I thought that you might be interested in my new series that comes out Friday, May 8th (with special permission from Lee Child). It’s called Get Jack Reacher and the first book is Gone Forever. I think that fans of Jack are going to love it!

    I want to send you a free copy so you can take a look. If you like it then maybe you can mention it to your followers and friends.

    Would a PDF copy be okay for you? If you aren’t interested then feel free to pass. No hard feelings. Before you decide; take a peek at the book trailer and there’s a little blurb about the book below, along with the cover.

    C​ameron Reacher. A new generation of Reacher. Cameron learns on his mother’s deathbed that his father is a mysterious drifter named Jack Reacher.

    Jack Reacher is out there somewhere. In order to know his father; Cameron follows in his footsteps—literally. With one thumb out, he hits the road to track down Jack Reacher, but what he gets instead is a town with a deadly secret and a distraught husband fighting to find his missing wife.

    The need for justice drives Cameron. Like father, like son.
    On my site there is a book cover and here is link to a book trailer.

    Hi Delia,

    Thanks for your comment on my story “Eternal Sleep.” I have an e-book I could send if you’re interested. Also, I’m editing another story of mine for the Onyx Neon Shorts Horror Collection, which has a main character called Delia. Weird…and perhaps wyrd?

      Hi Jarl,

      Eternal Sleep was really great, I love the title too, very Poe-like.
      Well, what do you know, I’m famous. 🙂 I would love to read more of your work, will send you an email soon. And I will check out your new story.

  4. Looking to get our new horror fiction collection reviewed. You reached out to one of the authors and editors for the collection, Jarl Nicholl, about his short “The Birth of Venus” came out, so we figured you might be interested in the collection as a whole since he was such a guiding force on it.

    Shoot me an email if you’d be interested in getting a copy. Jarl made sure I contacted you.

    Have a wonderful day, Jeffrey
