  1. Hi. I left a review for Tilting At Time by G Tome. Did you get it? I think the site was down?

    • Dear Bruce,
      Thanks for your message. We don’t take book reviews through the website. Our usual practice is to have email communication with reviewers before a review is undertaken, not to take unsolicited reviews. I don’t recall such a conversation with you. The book in question is now with another reviewer. Perhaps you can post your comment again when that review is published later in the year.
      Kind regards,
