Navigating the Blog:
Go to our static Home page (or you can use our header menu above) for reviews that are split by reviewer, author alphabet or genre – if you’re not sure about genre/subgenre just type what you’re looking for into “Search For” which will help you locate it if we’ve read it.
The Home Page also gives you a choice between blog tours, interviews, excerpts and giveaways. Books of the Month can also be easily accessed from our Home page as well. Featured books and Books of the Month are also linked images down the side of the page when you enter any post. If you click onto a featured book it will lead to a publisher, Amazon or review.
Submissions and Contact:
There is a fairly extensive post outlining reviewer preferences under Submission Details (on the header menu) above. There is also a contact form for submitting a review request, or we can be contacted on our highlighted email.
On Top Down Under has high reader traffic flow, and a highly visual book blog. We also use Pinterest, Tumblr – depending on the book – Facebook and Twitter to shout out your book. Attract traffic to your book, your next cover reveal will look stunning on our blog. You can contact us via the Review Submissions Form (under Submission Details on our menu) or email us at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know about your cover reveal details and timing.
On Top Down Under Book Reviews does not ask for advertising revenue from any author or other entity. Any books you see as Featured Books down the side, or in Books of the Month, are there because we select books we have enjoyed and we think our subscribers or fellow reader’s may well be interested in reading. We are purely a not-for-profit readers blog. We love reading, we love reviewing, and we love feeling that our opinions are unencumbered by expectation. Yes, we accept ARC’s or review copies – which we note at the bottom of the review – but only under the full understanding that a favourable review is not expected. Our reviews are known to be honest. We always attempt to be constructive and informative.

Please keep in mind that this is an adult blog and that you have to deliberately press enter to come in here in the first place. That warning is there for a reason. There will be pictures of an adult nature on the site somewhere. Always assume this site is never suitable for work.
In August 2012, under incredibly unusual circumstances – a book, the planet’s aligning, mercury in retrograde, someone special who is no longer with us, and any number of events we cannot explain – Cindi and Kazza K met as fellow readers on Goodreads. Despite living over 9,000 miles apart, we clicked instantly. We bonded over all things book-related, family, and the universe; and since that fateful day in August 2012 we have continued talking all things book related, and so much more. In October 2012 Cindi and Kazza K finally made it official. Yes, we joined our Kindles as one and we formed On Top Down Under Book Reviews… and we have never looked back.
What works so well for On Top Down Under Book Reviews is that Cindi and Kazza write different reviews and have (mostly) different tastes in books, even within genre. Our mission statement is honesty and quality reviews. While everything is our opinion, and all is subjective when it comes to reviews, we attempt to have an informed review site. We encourage both reader and author comment but bear in mind reviews are opinions. Bad behaviour and rude comments will not be tolerated. This blog is about reading, a few observations, and our shared love of the written word.
More individual reviewer information can be accessed from The Reviewers on our header menu.
