To whom it may concern,
Thank you for checking out my review policy page.
Before we go into any farther into the details of my terms please note: My acceptance of your book does not guarantee a review. It simply means I am agreeing to consider it for review.
I have the right to not give a review if after twenty (20) to thirty (30) pages I do not find interest in the said book.
The reason for this is that I will never give out a bad review. I find this bad marketing for the author and publishing house and overall embarrassing, instead, should I not like the said book, I will email the given contact and deliver said contact my thoughts, etc.
The order in which I review books, when I do review them, is at my discretion (unless otherwise whished by author and/or publisher).
Formats I will accept:
What book I will review:
YA (romance, fiction, fantasy, etc)
Some Historical Fiction
Middle Grade Fiction (fantasy, fiction, action adventure, etc)
Adult fiction (thriller, mystery, women’s fiction)
What I will not review:
How I review: I write honest reviews that are given a star-scale rating. I try to keep the audience in mind when rating a novel. This includes release date, publisher’s blurb of the book, and a rating.
The ratings are as follows:
1 Stars – The book was tolerable and may be enjoyed for a quick and easy, fun read …
2 Stars – The book was ok and may be best suited for readers who like and are familiar with the author…
3 Stars – The book was good and may be for readers who like…
4 Stars – The book was excellent and will most probably interest the reader to want to visit the writers other’s work/ next in series
5 stars- The book was beyond brilliant and will make readers highly interested in other works/ next in series..
Because of the sheer number of book I receive/ choose to review/ have on my own book shelves, I make no promises to respond to all of them.
If I am interested in discussing your novel further, rest assured, I’ll be in touch. How you will know if I reviewed: I confirm receipt of all books via email unless given an arc through NetGallery, etc.. I will also contact you when I begin reading the novel, and link you to the review once it is posted. When I do review, I post them here on the blog, as well as on goodreads. I may also post the review on Amazon.
If I make a twitter account I may also post a link to my blog.
This is a non-profit review blog! I do not receive any compensation for my reviews, and the reviews I write reflect my own personal experience with and opinions of those books.
In place of a review… I may offer to invite the author or publishing company to participate in one of the blogs features or series upon/in place of reading the novel, and will post links to the feature or series on the above-mentioned web pages. I also host Author/Reader Discussion (Q&A) I look forward to working with you, and becoming a part of the book promotional process! I am open to working with various authors, publishers, publicists, and literary agencies.
