My Review Policy

Dear fantasy and sci-fi authors! I'm ready to dive into your worlds, but fair warning: I'm a mood reader who savors every page.

About Me

Hey there, I'm Boe, the founder of SFF Insiders.

SFF Insiders

What originally started off as a discord community built by 4 friends with a burning passion for reading, has now slowly but surely turned into a platform where fellow bibliophiles can ramble about all things bookish. Initially launched in June 2023, this community strives to connect authors (both indie and traditional alike), to readers, bloggers, reviewers, and book lovers from all across the globe. Step into a place where readers can connect with other readers and get lost in a never-ending conversation about their favorite pieces of literature; a place where bloggers and reviewers can voice their opinions and share their reading journeys and experiences with the world; a place where authors can interact with their fellow counterparts, and open up a new chapter in their writing careers by launching their works out in the open...So, dear book lover... Yes, you. What are you waiting for? You could be someone just starting out on their very-first fantasy adventure, or someone diving into a brand-new sci-fi world, or even a scaredy-cat looking for even more spooks! Be it an amateur, or a professional; be it a debutant, or a seasoned veteran; be it a new blogger on the block, or an individual who has their way with words... this community has a place for each and every one of you! So come join us in this wonderful journey of spreading the joy of reading and writing... together!

My Review Policy

Dear fantasy and sci-fi authors! I'm ready to dive into your worlds, but fair warning: I'm a mood reader who savors every page.Here's how my review process works:

  • I read at my own pace, which can take a few days to a few weeks. No deadlines here, just pure bookish bliss! I believe every story deserves my full attention, without the pressure of a ticking clock.

  • Physical copies get priority, but I'm a true bookworm at heart and always happy to cozy up with an eBook too! I strive to strike a balance between the tactile joy of physical editions and the convenience of digital formats.

  • Every book I accept gets my full attention, and I'll share my reading journey on social media. Whether it's the satisfying feel of turning a page or the late-night glow of my Kindle, I'll immerse myself in your world.

  • Honesty is my policy, so if I can't finish a book, I'll reach out to you directly to explain why. Open communication is key, and I believe feedback, whether positive or constructive, can be valuable for every author.

  • I mix in personal reads to keep the spark alive, but your book could be my next great escape! I believe in the power of serendipitous discoveries alongside curated selections, so your work might just be the next one I reach for.

  • I'll do my best to respond within a week to let you know if I can accept your request. Thank you for your understanding
