Review & Giveaway Policy

Updated: October 26, 2015

Request Status: Not accepting new requests at the moment. I AM accepting Blog Tour Requests that are NOT for reviews (Guest Posts, Promo, Author/Character Interviews etc). I am also accepting requests from authors that I have previously worked with. I am also looking for guest reviewers, if you're interested please e-mail me.

Authors and publishers,

In order to have a suitable balance, I will only be accepting 4 review requests per month in order to allow me to give attention to my personal reading choices. However, blog tours that are not reviews (spotlight, author/character interview, guest posts, etc) will still be looked at, as will cover reveals. My policy for blog tours differs from review requests so please make sure you read them.

I will no longer be posting cover reveals, release blitzes or anything that has generic material on the blog anymore. Sorry. I WILL share them on Facebook though.

** Note: I have a certain way I like to do interviews in order to make them more interesting and engaging to viewers. I will send you the interview questions and when you send them back I will add my own commentary and then send it back to you for you to add your own commentary. So please make sure you have time to do this.

Please be aware that:

  • I only review romance novels (contemporary, paranormal, historical, erotic etc). However I do not review BDSM (if your book contains only mild BDSM then I may accept your request, please contact me). Another genre that has a love story in it does not count as a romance novel. If your book cannot/would not be found in the romance section at Barnes and Noble or Amazon, I will not review it. It wouldn't be fair to you if I did.
    FOR BLOG TOURS: I will host blog tours for BDSM romance as long as you are not requesting a review. Spotlights, excerpts and giveaways, along with author guest posts and author/character interviews are welcome on my blog. Just because I don't enjoy BDSM romance doesn't mean others don't.
  • Reviews are done in the order requests are received, with exception to ARCs. They will always be bumped up to the top of the list according to their release date. If you absolutely must have a review done by a certain date, let me know and I may be able to work something out.
    FOR BLOG TOURS: I need more than a week to review a book in time for the author's blog tour. I have other requests to get to for both this blog and I Smell Sheep (As a guest reviewer) and a life outside of blogging. I would prefer at least a month in advance but I understand that it isn't always possible.
  • I accept physical copies of books as well as epub, mobi, kindle books and pdf. Other formats I may have an issue reading but ask and I'll check or we can work something out. I now have a Kindle so I can accept books via amazon as well.
  • I would love to interview you/have you guest blog in addition to reviewing your book. Please let me know if you are available for one or both (see top note about how I conduct my interviews).
    * If I accept your request and we are doing an interview/guest post I will e-mail you and ask for a short bio, author photo and social networking links.
  • I would like to have a giveaway(s) of your book(s). It doesn't have to be the book I reviewed (in case it is an ARC), but I've found that including a giveaway in the review/interview generates more visits to the post and therefore increases exposure to your work. So please consider allowing me to host a giveaway.
  •  Authors and Assistants: Please note that ALL reviews will be posted on the blog FIRST and then on Amazon, Goodreads etc. the following week unless otherwise arranged. Also, please do not tell me how to write my reviews. I try to write them first and foremost for other romance novel fans. Being a fan myself, I know what I want to read in a review and try to include as much as I can without spoiling major plot lines. I am NOT accusing everyone of doing this but I have had run ins with one or two assistants/authors who have tried to tell me how to write, when to write, and where to post first. I've also had one person tell me not to post a review if it was three stars or lower. Three stars is still a good rating! And even if it wasn't, the review still goes up.
If you have not heard from me (with an acceptance or rejection) within a week, chances are, I did not receive your request.

If, after reading all this you would still like me to review your book or participate in a blog tour, just send me an e-mail with the subject line: Review Request or Blog Tour Host Request.

Thank you for your interest in my reviews.
