I will gladly accept books for review on my site!
I am only accepting hardcopy (aka a book), but this will eventually change to include ebooks once I get a new ereader (poor thing died from overuse). Please read the following, as contacting me means you understand and agree to the terms and conditions I have stated below.
I will usually only review novels. I am willing to try any genre of fiction, with a strong preference to romance, young adult, scifi/fantasy, chick lit, and inspirational/christian. I rarely read thrillers, mysteries, westerns, or military fiction unless the main plot is a romance. Non-fiction would need to be geared towards writing, dance, acting, or of similar relation to the arts or happiness. Children’s books and plays are a possibility, poetry less likely, and textbooks not at all.
I will try to be timely. I will always attempt to review ARCs before the book hit the shelves, and post already published books as near to their release date as possible. I also try to gear themed books towards whichever holiday they most fit (Valentines, St Paddys, Christmas, etc). I cannot promise to always be successful, just that I will do my best.
I cannot guarantee reviews. I work and travel, so my schedule does not always allow me to do as many reviews as I’d like If I receive one of your books I will review it as soon as I’m able. While this has not yet occurred, I will follow Thumpers sugguestion that “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.
I am connected. I use social media such as Twitter @JaimeKristal, Facebook, Goodreads, Instagram, etc. I will try to spread the word of your upcoming books to the best of my abilities.
I will tell no lies. I will be as truthful as I can when writing a review. My posts will not pretend that every book I read is fantastic, but neither would I bash any authors or books. As well, the reviews are based upon personal opinion and are by no means to be considered a professional review.
I love giveaways. If you want me to host a contest on your behalf, I will gladly do so. At this time I am unable to help with any costs included in said events, therefore I would pass the winner’s mailing address to whomever I am asked to contact.
I do interviews and guest posts. If you are interested in doing an interview, a guest post, or even a book review please let me know. I can email you either my Writerly Questions or my requirements for a review, or you can send me a guest post 400-600wrd about practically anything that relates to writing, publishing, or books.
These policies may be adjusted and added to at any time.
