I already have peer reviews from fellow authors, editors, and homesteaders, which I opted to put in a "Praise For" section on the first two pages, rather than do blurbs on the back cover. Of course, I have staff here at Permies willing to do reviews for me, plus a few specifically chosen homestead bloggers of influence as well. That seemed a better route to go than Reedsy, which doesn't seem to have anyone geared toward my niche. I thought for this book I'd expand on what I've done in the past and see if I can get something to add under "editorial reviews" on this book's Amazon page. I could use my peer reviews there, which I may end up doing, but wanted to see if I could add some other kinds of publications to my list.

Also what time of year would those of you who live there believe would be best for visiting? I had never heard of the midges you describe.

If small amounts were used, you would be constantly opening the door to add more. That's a pain, and it's not good for your indoor air quality either.
If larger amounts were used, I would worry about them burning so fast and hot that it could warp or crack the stove. In a fully airtight stove, you would have some control over that; but modern wood stoves aren't just a steel box -- they're pretty carefully engineered for the intended fuel, which is split wood.
In an emergency, if that was the only fuel available, I would take it slow, observe and adjust, and make it work.
