I don't mean to be nasty, but if your e-mail was written at all like your post (and the thread title), I can see why.

Ivory_Wolf, have you done your research? Have you made sure that people you have emailed read whatever the type of book you write is about? I don't know what you have written, but for instance if you just emailed anyone you may have missed out on your target audience. If it is a fantasy novel, but you have asked people who predominately read crime then they won't necessarily be interested. Just a thought.

Take a look at this website:-

I think it is self-explanatory. Copy and paste into your browser.

You might find this site useful too. I don't know which category your book fits into but if you hold your mouse-pointer over the words "Fiction Book Blogs" on the black bar on the title page you will find a list of categories which will take you to a list of book review blogs for, hopefully, the type of fiction you write. You may find some you haven't approached yet. Good Luck.

Thanks to all for comments and help...

@Ryan, my unfortunate spelling error has been pointed out to me, so I now see where you are coming from! Typing too fast at work... not a good idea...

Most authors love to read as much as write. It's like hand in glove. Chasing reviews is like banging your head against a brick wall, so don't be discouraged in any way. Just get reading good books that you enjoy, interact with readers and writers and gain knowledge along the way. You will meet people who are interested in your work and might offer to review and that will be a bonus. Best of all you feed the need to read. We write because of an urge, and read because there's a yearning.
Sometimes you get a review and it's good, but they tell potential readers the entire story! Anyway Gareth, goodluck with your book and forge ahead regardless of any hiccups along the way.
