Review Policy

A Book and a Short Latte is a book review website focusing primarily on the fantasy and young adult genres. However, I read and review books in a number of genres including: Urban Fantasy, High Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Steampunk, Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, and LGBT.

As I am the sole reviewer at A Book and a Short Latte, it is possible that I might not be able to accommodate every request.  I will respond to requests within one week of receiving an email.  While I prefer print editions when possible, I also accept EPUB and PDF copies; I do not accept copies for Nook or Kindle.  I accept both ARC’s as well as current releases.

Please note that if I accept your book for review, I will endeavor to get a review posted at least one week before the release date.  I post reviews both here and on Goodreads.  I am an honest reviewer and, as such, my reviews do not always contain only positive feedback.  However, I always take care to be respectful and professional in my comments.

To request a review, please contact Shortlatte directly at with the following information:

  • Name/Position and Email
  • Title and Author
  • Genre
  • Description
  • Series Number
  • Publication Date

  1. Hello
    Mike here, for author Alana Jewel Mousseau. Another blogger suggested that I make contact with. I am setting up promotions for Alana’s book series. “The Scars Saga” a Young Adult Sci-Fi, action adventure, paranormal romance, fantastic novel that is being compared to “Hunger Games;” “Divergent;” and “City Of Bones.”
    I am asking for help with promotion and a book review, (PDF format ok?) and I was hoping you would post the covers, a few promo pictures, and get in on the blog tour scheduled for March, 2014.
    “Scars of the Bifrost” book one description: Freya Catten has lived on the fringes of society her entire life, growing up in hiding with her mother in the deepest, wild places left in North America, National Parks and Forest. Freya’s mother taught her how to live and survive, away from civilization—mysteriously warning her of the dangers of getting involved with society and leaving her DNA behind. Freya is about to do what her Mother told her not to do and as she runs for her life she finds the answers to her deepest questions.
    “Unlocking Brisingamen” book two description: Trapped in separate universes, against all odds, Freya and Theron desperately try to reach one another. 
Meanwhile, Freya learns that the U.S. has been thrown into war with the Takers. Morag having succeeded in obtaining Freya’s DNA has infiltrated the United States’ most secured military bases to obtain their weaponry. Thousands of people have been kidnapped, cities evacuated, towns abandoned and still no one knows who the Takers really are except for Freya and Theron. Freya’s secret burns within her, and she wants desperately to warn her friends about the Takers but if she tried to reveal what she knows, would anyone believe her? And what if they discovered her true identity?
    “After All, Society Has A Tendency To Eliminate What It Does Not Understand”
