Petros is the creator & owner of BookNest. He lives in Patrai, Greece, where he works as a betting agent.

In his free time you may find him reading books, watching TV, and participating in Roman orgies (not really). 

He also has an infatuation with sloths that others might call unhealthy.

Hello, and welcome to

SPFBO 6 commences tomorrow, and we're proud to announce that BookNest will return as a Judge for the fourth year in a row in our continued efforts to support self-published authors. Many thanks to Mark Lawrence for this opportunity!

We are here today to reveal the process we will follow to choose our Finalist. This year, our team consists of eleven people! In the first round, our Regular Reviewers, Katerina, Max, Janelle and Natasha, as well as our two Guest Judges, Dyrk Ashton & D.M. Murray, will read and review 5 books each and pick their favorite as Semi-Finalists. You read that right - we will read and review all 30 books assigned to us, as we've always done so far. When we have our 6 Semi-Finalists, myself (Petros) and C.T. Phipps will read all of them and pick the best one as our Finalist, which will then proceed ti the Second Round of the SPFBO, to compete against the other 9 Finalists. In the Second Round, our Regular Reviewers, Gary, Jordan and Drew will read and review 3 Finalists each. Bellow, you can see the books assigned to us, and who will read what. We will keep this page updated everytime we review a book, or when we pick a Semi-Finalist, so you may want to bookmark it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to! Today we are lucky enough to reveal the cover of Incursion, first book in The Necromancer's Key series, by Mitchell Hogan, one of my favorite authors. Mitchell Hogan is the author of the Sorcery Ascedant Sequence, The Infernal Guardian duology, and Revenant Winds, an excellent standalone novel. He also recently joined the Jaberwocky Agency, and he is now repped by Joshua Bilmes, the agent of Brandon Sanderson, Myke Cole, Michael J. Sullivan & Peter V. Brett! Incursion will be self-published as a paperback, but the audiorights have been directly acquired by Audible. Here's what Mitchell himself has to say!

Mark Lawrence is considered by many (myself included) as one of the greatest fantasy authors of our age. By often treading a thin line between prose and poetry, his writing compliments and further elevates an already compelling story, resulting in books loved by many and appreciated by all. The Girl and the Stars is no exception.
