Dear Publishers, Publicists, and Authors:
Please Read Before Sending Me a Review Request:
Thank you for reading my review policies before contacting me with review requests!
I will accept physical book copies (galleys), as well as e-ARCs and a small number of audiobooks; please, no pdf files. Although I would love to be able to accept all requests for book reviews, that is just not possible. Thank you for understanding. Also, I have the right to decline any review books at my discretion.
If you are contacting me to solicit a review, please let me know a little bit about the book, preferably attach a book description or link if possible.
Also, if you are a publisher or author and you are requesting a review for an upcoming new release book and have a specific timeframe you want the book reviewed, please let me know that as well in your email request. I will try to accommodate your review request date as much as possible for all accepted review copies and typically do have all my reviews posted prior to or on a book’s publication date.
Writing My Reviews:
I promise to give you a completely honest and unbiased review and all opinions are my own.
I use the 5 Star rating system, and you can find my rating system here.
I reserve the right not to finish or review any book review copy that I have accepted or requested if I find that I cannot finish it.
It is my policy on my blog not write reviews for any book that I did not finish or that I gave a rating that is 3-stars or below although most of the time I will post the book’s star rating (never a review) on Goodreads. If I DNF’d the book, which I very rarely do, I will neither rate nor review it. Also, if for some reason I DNF’d the book or if I can’t review the book, I will contact you as well.
Also, although I would like to be able to respond to every email book review request that I receive, it is simply not possible for me to respond to each individual review request. I do check my email if not daily every other day and try to respond as I can.
If I have not answered your review request in a timely manner, usually within two weeks, then I’m more than likely not interested in your book. However, you will get a response if I am interested in reviewing your book. Thank you for understanding.
These are the genres that I prefer to read and review, and I will always give a fair, honest, and unbiased review that is entirely based on my own opinions and thoughts:
- True Crime
- Psychological Thrillers/Mild Horror
- Crime Fiction
- Women’s Fiction
- Fantasy/Paranormal (please no fantasy or paranormal involving aliens or other planets)
- Some Young Adult
- Historical Fiction
- Some Romance
- Some Memoirs
I will not be able to properly review the following genres of books since they are not books that I typically read, so please do not ask me to review them as I will automatically say no:
- Science fiction
- Religion, Spirituality & New Self-help
Feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions!
