About Me & Review Policy

About Me
I'm an Australian blogger who lives in Melbourne, Victoria. I don't have any pets, vices (apart from books), and am committed to life-long education. With this in mind, my official qualifications are a BA in Literature and Religious studies and a BS/BBS in Biochemistry and Genetics (H1 Honours). I am currently undertaking a PhD in Genetics at Monash University.

I started this blog way back in 2012 because I wasn't reading all of the novels I was buying. Three years on, I hardly ever buy books, and receive most of my reading material from publishers and indie authors. I also enjoy the occasional talking book borrowed from my local library.

Review Policy
I accept almost any genre of book for review, non-fiction included. My special interests are in fantasy, queer (LGBT), young adult, mental health disorders and real-life crime, with a smattering of other genres. I generally do not review short story collections or graphic novels.

I review paperback novels, and I am NOT ACCEPTING EBOOKS at this time. If you would like me to consider your novel for review purposes, please email me at thecosydragon (at) gmail (dot) come.

I can promise a 2-3 month turnaround time, and an honest review on this blog and any other sites you may require (Amazon and GoodReads by default).

I receive novels for no other compensation other than a free copy of the novels from:

  • Scholastic
  • HarperCollins
  • Allen and Unwin
  • Random House
  • Pantera Press
  • Macmillan
  • Vivid Publishing
  • Simon and Schuster
