Do you need a Book Review?

Do you want book reviews for your magazine or online publication?
I write reviews on most kinds of dive or underwater photography related books. Long or short - just get in touch!

Posted on Apr 12, 2012

Even in this online era, many divers still enjoy reading a real book about their favourite subject - and book reviews in magazines are always popular.

Finding time to actually read the books in question is often a challenge for busy editors or other staff. But help is at hand! I write long or short book reviews on almost any kind of dive related books in English or any of the Scandinavian languages:

     • Scuba diving and dive training
     • Marine biology, marine life, fish and reef guides
     • Underwater photography, PhotoShop training
     • Travel and destination guides
     • Wreck diving and war history
     • Documentaries, biographies, accounts
     • Novels and works of fiction

After working as an editor for a dive magazine for five years, I am experienced in writing book reviews.

Please get in touch if you would like to offer your readers some good book tips but don't feel you have the time to focus on it. All you need to do is send me the book and let me know when you need the review!

I write reviews on many kinds of dive related books - including books about marine biology.

They have up to 40.000 hydraulic tube feet, and are able to regenerate lost limbs. These are just two of the remarkable traits of some of the most adaptable inhabitants of the sea - the starfish.
