ABOUT RCR

ROSE CITY READER
(aka Gilion Dumas)



I can't resist a list! Prize winners, Must Reads, Big Reads, Top 100s -- if it's on a list, I'm tempted to put it on my TBR list. If I really like an author, I'll add the bibliography to my list of lists. And once I read a book, I add it to my Books I've Read list. Arguably, I burn up valuable reading time playing with my lists. I know this.

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.


REVIEW POLICY

Unless we already have a bookish relationship, please ask first. I am particularly pleased to promote Oregon and other Pacific Northwest authors and publishers. I also am generally interested in literary fiction, memoirs, travel, food, and cookbooks.

If I accept a book, I will post about it here on Rose City Reader when I get the book (Mailbox Monday), the opening lines (Book Beginnings on Fridays), a two-line teaser (Teaser Tuesday), and an author interview if the author is interested. All blog posts cross post to my Rose City Reader facebook page and my twitter feed. I also will post at least a short review on amazon, Goodreads, and LibraryThing.

Because I spend so much time in front of a screen, I don't read ebooks. No hard feelings if you only have an ebook to offer. I understand you can't be sending paper books out to everyone. But I only accept paper books.

Otherwise, I'm just not that into review copies. My TBR shelves are already groaning and I don't like the guilt of another reading obligation. You can always ask, but don't take it personally if I politely decline. I will decline offers of YA, fantasy, romance, paranormal, or anything scary.

You can contact me at gilion at dumaslawgroup dot com.


DAY JOB



When not reading, I practice law in Portland, at my own firm, the Dumas Law Group. Much of our work involves helping people who suffered sexual abuse or other abuses as children. We represent abuse victims in lawsuits against their abusers and the organizations that allowed the abuse to happen.
