The Blog and the Blogger
My name is David Hebblethwaite, and I’m a book blogger from Yorkshire, now resident in the south of England. I mostly talk about fiction (both novels and short fiction) on here, with the odd bit of non-fiction. Most of all, I appreciate good writing and books that go their own way. The type of book is less significant, but, if there’s a speculative flavour to much of what I read… well, that’s what I like. This year, I am aiming for two-thirds of my reading to be either in translation, or English-language writing from outside the UK and US. I’m also interested in exploring the work of new writers.
If you’d like to contact me, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m happy to accept review copies – but do please note the following points:
- I run this blog in my spare time, on top of a full time job. I try to be timely, but can make no guarantees as to when, or at what length, I’ll cover a particular book.
- I read many types of fiction, but would be especially interested in hearing about speculative fiction, works in translation, or short stories. No pitches for poetry, graphic novels or YA, please.
- I don’t have an e-reader. I’ll accept PDF copies of works up to novella length, but anything longer has to be a print copy.
If all that is fine with you, feel free to get in touch.
