Review Policy

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.

  1. Hi Jamie,
    If you like True Blood or the Twilight Series, you’ll love Teale Moon by Vivian Hartley. Below is a link to the book. If this is to your taste I can email you a free copy for you to review. You don’t have to have an ereader to view it. Let me know if you’re interested. I had to read it because I was commissioned to do the book cover. I loved it, so I thought I would pass on the info to you. Thanks,
    ejcharbonneau@aol.com
    if the link does not work just go to amazon.co.uk or amazon.com and type Teale Moon

  2. I love Teale Moon! I was so sad when Charlaine Harris finished her Sookie Stackhouse series, but I have found that Vivian Hartley’s Teale Moon has filled that void. I’m looking forward to reading Violet Moon.
