Review Policy

I currently review fiction for both my blog here and Dead Head Reviews. The focus for Dead Head is on horror, dark fantasy and sci-fi fiction, and for the blog, I will happily read anything, whether it’s fantasy, romance, mystery/thriller, historical, etc.

Please see status below to check if I am currently accepting books to review.

For all genres, I am happy to accept either .mobi ebooks to read on my Kindle, or paperback copies. All I ask is that you don’t send ebooks directly to the e-mail address below, but enquire first.

You can contact me either via Twitter (@elleturpitt), as my DMs are open, or you can e-mail me at In your e-mail, please include a short blurb for the book and whether you’d like it to be reviewed on this blog or on Dead Heads. (I will also review books on Goodreads)

If you have a specific date you would like the book read and reviewed by, please let me know in the first instance. I will try to accommodate it, but I would rather let you know straight away if I am unable to.

Please note, I reserve the right to DNF a book. It’s not something I ever really do, but if for whatever reason I cannot continue reading your book, I will let you know.

If I agree to review your book, please let me know if you would like to be tagged, or if you would only like to be tagged if the review is positive, and if you would like me to contact you when the review is up. (Again, you can let me know if you only want this if the review is positive)

I post honest reviews. I try to be as kind as possible, but please be aware my reviews aren’t all glowing praises. I do try to consider what others might be attracted to in a book, and please be aware sometimes what doesn’t suit one person might ensure someone else picks up the book! I’ve seen plenty of one and two star reviews which made me keen to read the book being reviewed.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I do like to know why someone might think I’m a good fit for reviewing their book, so in your initial enquiry just let me know if you follow me on Twitter, seen the blog, seen Dead Head Reviews, etc.

STATUS: Closed to digital arcs. Open for physical arcs.
