Do you get paid for your reviews?

No. I love to read and help publishers and authors get their book out to readers so I review and spread the word without getting paid.

Where you do get the books you review?

I get review requests from authors themselves or their publicists. Sometimes, I also review books that I bought on my own.

What should I do if I want to request a review for my book?

I’m not a fan of every fiction genre, so please read about me, the books I have reviewed in the past, and the Review Policy to check if this blog is a good fit for your book.

Do you accept books from indie/self-published authors?

Yes. As long as it fits my genres, and as long as it captures my attention.

How long does it take you to post a review?

As this is not my job, I won’t be able to post quickly. If you really need a book review on a specific date, I will do my best, although I do adhere to deadlines on the blog tours that I have signed up on.

Policies may change at the blog owner’s discretion.
