Policies

Review Guidelines:

  • I accept ARCs and finished copies of physical books and e-books for review. If the book is part of a series I may request the previous books to write a well-rounded review.
  • I’m open to reviewing self-published titles, but titles received from a publisher take priority. I am also open to reviewing audio books.

Genres:

Literary Genres I Read

Ratings and Review Style:

ratingsI will make every effort to post a timely review for any books I accept, usually within one month after the publication date (where this is possible). My reviews are not literary critiques, they represent my honest opinion of the book, which may not always be positive. I may also post my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and other online sites. If I do not finish a book I may write a post explaining my reasons for not finishing and if I intend to read the book in the future.

Ratings are based solely on my personal opinion and enjoyment of the book at the time of reading and can not be easily compared between books, especially if not in the same genre. 

I’m interested in guest posts, Author guest posts, Author interviews, giveaways and cover reveals!

Giveaway Policy:

I love hosting giveaways! I’d like to think posting giveaway “rules” isn’t necessary, but just in case… Each individual giveaway post will state the guidelines/rules for entry, but in general:
  • Giveaways will state clearly if they are open internationally or not
  • Opening and closing dates of entry will be clearly displayed in the giveaway post
  • You must be 18 years or older, or have your parents’/guardians’ permission to enter
  • All entries will be disqualified if it is discovered that any of the entries are forged
  • The winner will be notified by email when the competition closes, if the winner does not respond within 48 hours a second winner will be chosen (please check junk folders!)
  • In some cases the item will be sent by me, in others it will come directly from the publisher/author. I am not responsible for items sent by publishers/authors. In the case of items sent by me – I am not responsible for any items lost in the mail.

  2. Hi
    I’m hoping you will consider reviewing my series St. Barts. There are two books out now and the next two will be released on Monday! Way ahead of schedule but my very small UK publisher wants to strike when the iron is hot. It’s a contemporary romance series based on the Caribbean island of St. Barts which is paradise, and a hot spot for the rich and famous. The series follows an incredibly optomistic young woman called Sunny O’Hara and her relationship with an actor called Sven Larsen. It deals with celebrity and fame, money and power and how life always throws you a curveball…or three. I would be more than willing to send you the pdf or mobi copies of the books.

    Let me know if you’re interested.

    Thanks so much for your time

  3. Hi Rachel – Just found your site thanks to some love you got from another blogger/reviewer – and I will be thanking her shortly! I was published with Liquid Silver Books last November for my novel, Updrift, and would love to offer it to you for your review. Here’s a link in case you’re interested, and I hope to hear from you soon! (If you don’t hate it, I’ll be happy to do a giveaway on your site, too. 🙂 )
