Requesting a Review FAQ
I offer honest reviews in exchange for ARCs or free copies of books. I review books which I’ve purchased with the same honesty that I do for gifted books. Good or bad, after reading reviews here, you’ll know what I really think.
Do you accept copies of books for reviews?
I have a plethora of books on my TBR list that I still need to read and review, but I do accept books for review in both digital and print formats.
What format of books will you accept?
I prefer holding and feeling a book when I read it, so a paper book is very welcome, but I understand that printed copies are expensive to provide. I also accept EPUB, and PDF, if that is all you have available. Audiobooks are a possibility for me as well.
What genres do you review?
I am a multi-genre author, and likewise a multi-genre reader. Feel free to ask me for any genre from the list of genres I am open to below. I like to be surprised. I usually don’t enjoy literary fiction or self-help books, but I’m not afraid to try anything new!
Can I expect a review on your blog if you accept my book?
I don’t accept every review request that I getI write a review for every book that I accept.
Are you going to be nice in your blog if you dislike the book?
Nope. If I can’t give it at least three quills, I will decline to review it. It doesn’t make me feel good to trash another author’s book, so I just don’t do it.
What’s the best way to contact you?
You may use the page “Contact Form” below to send me your request.
Do you always respond to requests, even if you’re not interested?
I try to at least acknowledge receipt of every book, but I may not get a chance to evaluate it until it comes up for review. At that time, I will either read and write the review or contact you to decline.
Are you going to write about the book somewhere else?
Yes. I post my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and Bookbub. I promote my reviews on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and LinkedIn. These tasks are time consuming and I’m a one woman show, so please be patient.
I offer honest reviews in exchange for digital (.epub is my prefered format. Bookfunnel is my prefered method of delivery.) or print copies. If you are an author/publisher/publicist who wants to promote books on Writing to be Read, read on: I accept all kinds of books for review. Once I receive the book, it can take me up to 3 months to review it depending on the length of my TBR list. If you want a review published at a specific time, please state it up-front.
I cross-promote my reviews across Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub to support authors in all of their writing endeavors.
