  1. I enjoyed reading your review of https://bookreviewstoday.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/forget-me-not-by-mandasue-heller/ and was wondering whether you would consider reviewing my book, Samantha which tells the story of a young girl forced into prostitution by her brutal pimp Barry in the city of Liverpool. If you are interested please let me know and I will send you a copy. Many thanks, Kevin

      Hi Kevin, I am sorry to have taken so long to reply. I would be happy to review, “Samantha”. I have several books still in my pile, so it may be the end of May before I can complete reading the book and publish the review. If that time scale suits you, please send me a copy of the book. Could I ask you for a couple of “likes” and/or comments on my site?
      All the best

      • Many thanks Valerie. The end of May is fine and many thanks for agreeing to write a review. Can you please provide a contact email address so that I can send through Samantha?

        Kind regards,

        Kevin

      Hi Pete,
      I have a bit of a back-log! It would be next month before I would get to your book. If that time-scale is acceptable, please feel free to send me a copy.
      All the best. Val
