Book Review Request Policy
I often boast that I could just about read and talk about anything—and I can—however, with this past year of book-slinging and reviewing, I’ve come to realize that there are specific books, genres and narratives—well-known and not—that matter more for me to speak/write about and share than others.
Now with that said, this review policy will not affect previous authors or publishers I have worked with or reviewed books for in the past and whom would like to work with me again.
Secondly, I had the misfortune of being pushed off of my normal reading/review-posting schedule following my last move, and in order to prevent that from happening again, most review request will be arranged in a first come, first served manner. However, I am not obligated to answer and accept all requests submitted.
Books I Will Accept:
Diverse Books ie:
- Books with POC Leads
- Culture rich books
- Books by POC authors
- Books by LGBTQ+ authors, LGBTQ+ themed/content books
- Books by POC female authors specifically
- WIT Books (books written by women in different languages from all around the world that have been translated into English)
- Rom-Com (35% of the time)
- Contemporary Fiction
- Action Adventure
- Comics/Graphic Novels
- Non-traditional /Non-Western material like Fairytales For Lost Children
**Genres not specified from this list will most likely be ignored.**
Age Range: Middle school & up. I love reading and sharing material with my younger cousins 🙂
Note For Self-Published Authors:
As a writer myself, with a number of other writers friends who are self-published, I get it. And I wouldn’t mind considering/accepting a review request or two by self-published authors, but please be advised that this does not mean I will accept or respond to all requests.
eBooks, Print and Audiobooks are all welcome, though I will only accept ePub formats for eBooks and audiobooks via audible.com.
I appreciate honestly and I should hope that those who reach out to me for my honest opinion on their work do as well. Regardless of the fact that a book fits into my preferred reading perimeters, it is important that the author know it does not guarantee a five star review rating or a favorable review.
Thank you so much for considering me to read your work.
