I know that lists are lazy makers in the world of blogging, but I’m doing one. The intention behind this list is to use as a reference guide for all of the people submitting to me for a review. Below are a list of genres and styles that would actually get me intrigued to read your book. 10 would be the highest. Say if you had a combination of 3 of the tens I would be more inclined to read it. On the lower scale though… good luck.
 
If I have not included the genre that your book is about, say a sports themed book, then it doesn’t even rank, i.e. it would never occur to me to pick it up. Sorry, ’tis true. I know where my priorities lie.
 
(Also – stop submitting religious thrillers. Not going to happen. I can’t even pretend to care.)
