Review Rules

Terms and Conditions

This review site is for Baby Boomer authors, expecially those who are just getting started and could use an impartial review of their work. Because I wasn’t able to find sites which I would consider a good match to review my own books, I decided to offer this service myself.

If you are a thirty-something author with a great fantasy, please — it won’t be a good match. There are lots of sites willing to review your novels. If you are a fifty- or sixty-something author with a great fantasy, it won’t work either. But if you are a baby boomer, and you have written a novel in any of the below genres, then we may have something to talk about.

  • Boomer Lit
  • Women’s Fiction
  • General/Literary Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Memoir
  • Mystery/Thrillers
  • Short Story Collections
  • Non-fiction (so long as I have some knowledge of the topic)

I do not review in these genres:

  • Formula Romance
  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Erotica
  • Inspirational

This service is a voluntary effort. I can accept books and ARCs from small presses, self-publishers and traditional publishers but at this time I can’t accept manuscripts. I am attempting to focus on Baby Boomer literature, also known as boomer lit. At this time I can commit to one full-length novel per week (up to 150,000 words) or two novellas (up to 70,000 words).

All Baby Boomer authors are welcome to request a review but be advised that it will be an honest review. I do not expect a review of my books in return; thus it is not a “review swap” opportunity. I do not charge for reviews.

You can contact me at lynn@lynnschneider.com or from the Contact page. I will keep the Review Queue current with books that will have upcoming reviews created. Reviews will be posted at location(s) of the author’s choice, Amazon, Goodreads, etc.

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about the arbitrary removal of reviews from Amazon if the review does not fit within their “guidelines”. This is Amazon’s attempt to eliminate sock puppet reviews, but has had an adverse effect on their review process. If they choose to remove my reviews for any reason, I will have no recourse. So let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
