Please do NOT contact me offering revenue making opportunities. This blog is a hobby and I do not intend to make money from it.

What Happens If I Accept Your Book For Review?

I will confirm receipt of books chosen to review, via email. I will also contact you when I begin reading the novel, and link you to the review once it’s posted. My book reviews are cross-posted, at a minimum, to this blog, Twitter, and Goodreads. I try to ensure my reviews are as timely as possible, posting on or before the publication date.

Before sending me a review request please understand that by accepting or receiving a book, I do not guarantee that it will be read immediately or posted on the blog immediately. I also reserve the right to NOT post a review of your book should I not feel comfortable doing so. I am not a professional book reviewer.  I am just a person that loves to read and enjoys reviewing, blogging, and posting about books. So, I want to keep this fun.

What If I don’t enjoy your book?

All of my reviews will be my honest opinion and it is possible that I won’t enjoy your book and my review will reflect that. Please know that I will not write a glowing review just because you sent me the book. However, I will not tear it apart in a disrespectful manner, but rather I will respectfully state the reasons I may not have liked it. I do understand that the book provided to me is a labor of love and hard work.  Again, my reviews are honest but always respectful.
