Review Policy

Current Status: CLOSED. I am not accepting any new books for the foreseeable future; I have a lot of catching up to do and my life is going through a lot of changes. This includes Expedited services. I will delete any emails I get unless I’ve worked with you in the past.

Review Policies

I’m happy to accept review requests, but please be sure to read my policy thoroughly. I offer both a paid Expedited Review option that guarantees an unbiased review within two weeks and I do still accept books unpaid for review consideration, though there is no guarantee of a review (see General Review Policy).

Expedited Review Service

I am now offering an Expedited Review paid option that guarantees a review published on this site within 2 weeks for $40 for up to 400 pages. Please see my Expedited Review Service policy for details.

Beta-Reading Service

I am also offering a similar beta-reading service. For $40 I will beta-read your manuscript (up to 400 pages) and give you chapter-by-chapter feedback.

  • If you are in need of a beta reader, for the same pricing options I will read your manuscript and provide chapter-by-chapter feedback on characters, world-building, and plot. I will also provide notes on wording and typos as I find them, but don’t guarantee I’ll catch them all.
  • To request an Expedited Beta Read please email anya (at) onstarshipsanddragonwings (dot) com with the subject Expedited Beta Read: Book Title.

General Review Policy

I am accepting sci-fi and fantasy books for review consideration currently (any sci-fi or fantasy subgenre is great). This includes age ranges from middle grade to YA to adult (but no erotica). I love short fiction as well, so all length stories are welcome. This is a free review option, though I do not guarantee a review. For details on my reading preferences and all other relevant information, please see my General Review policy page. I will not consider your request unless you have read my review policy.

Titles may be mailed to:

Anya Johnson
324 Washington Ave #513
Grand Haven, MI 49417

I will not sell any ARCs I receive, and  I will be very careful with your digital galleys and delete them when I am done reading. Piracy sucks. I do however frequently hold giveaways for physical ARCs and I’ll assume that is fine unless told otherwise.

Books I am specifically very interested in and would happily accept for review consideration:
