Something to note: I never just go on a blind rant about a book and tear it down with no useful advice. I try to offer constructive criticism that might be useful to the author. I do reserve the right to negatively review your book but as I said, it will be as respectful as possible. If you’re an author who prefers no review over a “negative” one (2 or less stars), please just let me know.

Another thing to note is that your review will be posted to Amazon and Goodreads shortly after completing your book, but may take weeks to be posted to my blog. Depending on various factors, your review may have a stand alone post, be included in a “Mini Reviews” type post, or may not be posted here at all. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this.

 

Deadlines

I’m often very busy with work so if I accept your book, I may not end up reading it right away. By acknowledging this, you understand that I may take some time before getting to your book. I’ll try to finish it as soon as possible but sometimes that’s easier said than done. If you for some reason need a deadline for the review, please let me know and I’ll confirm whether or not I can take it on.

 

Blog Tours, Promos, Interviews – OPEN

I enjoy doing blog tours and am opening to taking more on. If there is little time before the tour starts, I may have to decline due to time constraints. If there is sufficient time and the book falls into my accepted/favorite genres, I should have no problem accepting the tour invite.

As for interviews, if you’re an author who might want to be interviewed and featured here the please make sure I’ve read at least one of your books before. If I haven’t, I’ll request a copy of one of your books to help me come up with some decent questions. The same goes for if you’d like me to promote a book of yours. I’m also open to having authors do guest posts to promote their book.

 

Sponsorships/Paid Posts – OPEN

Any posts that are sponsored or paid for will also be tagged as such in a blurb at the top of the post and will be completely unbiased. I’m only looking for partnerships that I think will benefit my readers and offer something I can get behind as well. If you’re interested in partnering up for anything or would like to request a post, please feel free to e-mail me with all relevant information.

 

Giveaways

Any and all giveaways we may do are NOT affiliated with any platform I’m on, such as twitter, instagram, etc. Giveaways are solely our responsibility. If you’re a winner of a particular giveaway, we will ask for certain information simply to give you your prize. This information will not be stored by us, nor will it be sold or shared with any third-party sites. If the giveaway is a joint effort between myself and an author/seller, I will disclose this information at the top of the post.

 

I’m also open to group giveaways or pairing up with another person to do a joint giveaway. 🙂
