As of January 2016, I am no longer accepting books for review. Pressure of work means I can't devote the time I'd like to them, so rather than see-saw between guilt and resentment, I will do the occasional review, but of books I've bought myself.
By all means tell me about books you've written or published. I always like to know what's coming up, as who knows what I'd miss otherwise?
I prefer not to be given books, because I do then feel the pressure to be nice to the person or organisation who's given them to me. If I am sent any, they'll go to my local schools, if I feel the books are appropriate.

No change on the policy here. I don't do them.
