Review Policy

{ Updated January 19, 2014 }

Passages to the Past is currently open to receiving review requests.  We review Historical Fiction and History/Non-Fiction titles. 

We receive a good number of requests and can’t respond to them all, though we do try. If we are unable to respond to you please don’t take it personally and know that you can always reach out again for future pitches. 

If you'd like to be hosted at Passages to the Past or inquire about a review please email Amy at

Unsolicited review copies

We don’t mind receiving unsolicited review copies, but please know that since we did not agree to review the book then it will be at our discretion whether we do so or not. If it is a title that we are not interested in we will either host a giveaway or donate to a local library. It is always best to reach out first before sending!

Virtual book tours

Not only do I like to participate in virtual blogs tours, but I coordinate them for historical fiction authors at Historical Fiction Virtual Book  Tours.  If you are interested in receiving more information and pricing, please email Amy at

Lead time/post date

Ideally I'd like to receive the book at least three to four weeks in advance of the agreed upon review date (if applicable).

If you need the review posted on a particular date please let me know, otherwise it will be posted at my convenience.

I accept print and digital review copies.

  1. Hi, Amy:

    I've been traditionally published since 1990. In Sept. 2013 and March 2014 my two-volume Civil War/Reconstruction saga, "Of Blood and Brothers" was published. The story is based on a true family that lived near where I grew up along the FL panhandle coast. Although the primary focus is on two brothers from the same family who fought for opposing armies, there is a strong love interest running throughout both volumes. I would be honored to send you either printed books or PDF copies of both books. My personal e-mail is: -- full info on the books can be found at my Amazon author page:

    I appreciate this opportunity, and look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

    Michael (E. Michael Helms)
