Well, hidy-ho there, reader! If you’re looking at this page then I assume you want to know a bit about me. My name is Emi, and it’s nice to meet you. By day I'm grad student studying publishing at Rosemont College and by night I'm an obsessive reader. I started blogging in July 2010 as a way to learn more about books, the publishing world, and social networking. Though I love all kinds of science fiction and fantasy, I'm particularly fond of medieval-based fantasy. What can I say? I have a thing for swords, castles, knights and wizards. My favorite series is The Immortals Quartet by Tamora Pierce. Those books literally changed my life. 

I do a lot of writing in my free time. When I'm not writing, I like to watch tv, play Poke'mon, hang around renaissance fairs, obsess about Walt Disney World, eat Japanese food, and occasionally draw in Photoshop. Oh, which reminds me--all of the graphics on this site were drawn and colored by yours truly, and the octopus' name is Gregory Valiant.

I'm a publisher/author/blogger/loving internet stalker. How can I contact you?
The easiest way to contact me is to email me at I usually respond within a day or two unless I'm drowning in schoolwork or on vacation. 

Do you accept requests? 
Absolutely. For more details about the kinds of books I review, please check out my Reivew Policy page. I will accept physical and digital copies of a book, as long as the file can be read (or converted to be read) on a Kindle. Turn around time for review requests is 1-2 months, unless special arrangements are made to accommodate a blog tour schedule. 
AS OF 2/26/14:
 Requests are closed. 

Would you be interested in participating in a blog tour and/or giveaway?
Sure! Contact me with the details and we'll work something out. I'm always happy to help authors spread the word about their book.  

Where are your reviews posted?

Reviews are posted here on my blog, on goodreads, and if requested. Links to my reviews are posted on Twitter, Tumblr and on the Oktopus Ink FaceBook page.

If you have any other questions, concerns, or comments that weren't addressed on this page, feel free to send me an email. I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for visiting my blog, and haaaaaappy reading!
