Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek & Dave Philpott #BookReview #BlogTour

A collection of hilarious letters to iconic pop and rock stars with fantastic in-on-the-joke replies from the artists themselves: Eurythmics, Heaven 17, Deep Purple, Devo, Dr. Hook and many, many more…

For more than a decade, Derek Philpott and his son, Dave, have been writing deliberately deranged letters to pop stars from the 1960s to the 90s to take issue with the lyrics of some of their best-known songs. They miss the point as often as they hit it.

But then, to their great surprise, the pop stars started writing back... 

Dear Mr Pop Star contains 100 of Derek and Dave's greatest hits, including correspondence with Katrina and the Waves, Tears for Fears, Squeeze, The Housemartins, Suzi Quatro, Devo, Deep Purple, Nik Kershaw, T’Pau, Human League, Eurythmics, Wang Chung, EMF, Mott the Hoople, Heaven 17, Jesus Jones, Johnny Hates Jazz, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, Chesney Hawkes and many, many more.

I'm delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Dear Mr Pop Star toda…

Review Policy

Thank you for taking the time to read my review policy. I am UK based blogger, but am very happy to consider books reviewing published worldwide and will accept submissions from publishers, PR companies and authors. I can read either print or ebooks. I love crime fiction but also enjoy SFF, historical, contemporary and women's fiction, YA, and some non-fiction, particularly memoirs. I'm also willing to read outside my preferred genres should the blurb entice me! I enjoy sharing books with my youngest daughter so I can also review books aimed at the 9-13 year old market; she prefers exciting adventure and/or fantasy stories with strong protagonists. I occasionally read romance but no erotica please. I love taking part in blog tours and can usually provide a review but am also happy to feature guest posts or to host a Q&A with the author.
I usually have several books lined up so if you would like a book reviewed by a certain date I will require at least three months' notice. If you don't have a date in mind I will add your book to my tbr list but please be aware it may be several months before I'm able to read and review it. Blogging about books is a hobby I am passionate about but I also have a job and a family so I may not be able to accept all requests. Please note if I don't reply to your request within two weeks then regretfully I'm unable to review your book. If you require a post for a particular date but I'm unable to offer a review, I am happy to feature an original guest post of your choosing or an extract from your book.
My reviews are always honest but I prefer not to post negative reviews so if your book is not for me I will contact you to explain this. I believe all books have their audience and sometimes I'm just not it! I will never ask for any payment for my reviews and I am not part of any affiliate program.
I can be contacted through the form in the sidebar on the home page of this blog, via email at hairpastafrecklebookreviews@gmail.com or via @karlou on Twitter.

Title and author of book

  1. You've certainly read some best-sellers! Your Review Policy is clearly set out, and I think it is kind of you never to post negative reviews.
