My interview over at The Art and Craft of Writing Creatively is HERE

Purchase my book Images of America: Detroit Lakes HERE


In accordance with new FTC guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials for bloggers, I would like to let you know that all books reviewed by me were purchased personally or I was given the book by the publisher/author for the purpose of a review. If the book is an ARC I will indicate that in the post. I receive no financial compensation for the reviews I provide.

Just because I receive a book for review does not persuade me to write a good review and I do reserve the right to not review the work.  I review these books because I love to read and like to share my opinion with everyone. If I feel that the book isn't something I will finish I will find try to find someone else to review it.

I love to read paranormal romance, urban fantasy, paranormal young adult, horror, historical fiction, mystery/thrillers, biographies/memoirs, and some chick lit. I do read just about every genre, but those are the main ones.


If you would like me to review your work, you can contact me at kopsahl48 AT gmail DOT com. I am open to receiving advanced reader's copies and non-advanced copies in the genres list above and swag to give away. I accept digital galleys/ARCs for review. My preferred method of receiving e-galleys is through NetGalley, where I am a listed Review Organization Accepting NetGalley Titles, or edelweiss.

My time-frame is normally within 3-6 months, depending on how many books I am reviewing or the content of a book.  If you have an urgent request, I will do my best to accommodate you but I would prefer to have at least 2 weeks.

After reviewing I will post the review to my blog, GoodReads, Paperbackswap,  LibraryThing, Amazon and if applicable several other outlets. I will also post a link on my Facebook page, Twitter account and Pinterest and email you that the post is up with a link to it. Please let me know if there are other places that you would like me to post the review and I will do my best to accommodate you.

I am always willing to do interviews, guest posts, and contests/giveaways.
