I am starting a review blog for gothic novels. I've got one small press novel reviewed, and I'm about to do a second, and then I'm going to launch it. Probably in the next two weeks. Here's my dilemma: I want to focus on small press books and self-published books, but there aren't that many small press or self-published gothic novels that I know about. Also, I don't want to support some of the small presses with reviews because they are unscrupulous, and some of their books and the books of self-published authors aren't suitable for review because of poor quality. Do you think it's better to focus solely on small press and self-published books, or to focus on gothic novels in general from big names and small names? What is a better strategy for me as a new reviewer? I appreciate your input on this, and if you write gothic stories and have a novel coming out, please PM me and let me know. I definitely want to give priority to gothic novels published by authors in this forum. I look forward to your comments. Edward G.
