If you are interested in having me read and review a book, feel free to contact me, but first please check the answers to some critical questions.
Which books will I consider for a review?
The only genre I will accept for review is Speculative Fiction. That means fantasy, science fiction, urban fantasy, fairy tales, alternate history, dystopia, steampunk, horror, time travel and post-apocalyptic.
What formats am I willing to review?
I prefer to read ebooks on my Kindle. I’m also a member of NetGalley and Edelweiss, so I can accept eGalleys via their service.
It does not matter if a book is an ARC or a finished copy. But be aware that spelling errors will affect my rating.
Where will my review be posted?
Please inform me if you would like me to post the review anywhere else and I will do my best to accommodate you.
What should you include in your review request?
- Book title
- Is it part of the series?
- Release date
- A time frame for when you expect the review to be posted
- Any other special requests
How far in advance do I need a book?
I am usually able to read and review a book within two months of receiving it. If you are a publisher or author I already cooperated before, I may be able to squeeze it in sooner.
I will not accept any monetary compensation from publishers or authors to write a positive review of a book. All reviews on this blog are my personal, honest opinion.
A positive review of your book cannot be guaranteed. But even if I write a negative review I can promise to do it respectfully, with a list of things that did not work for me and a list of potential things that other readers might like.
Do I participate in blog tours?
First of all, I have to have an interest in the book that is being promoted.
As a part of your blog tour, I am willing to do a review, playlist, dream-cast, guest post, interview or whatever format comes to your mind but it will have to be exclusive and unique content.
I do not do cover reveals. Sorry, but I do not want to be one of many bloggers that will reveal it on the same day. Unless (of course) you are willing to do a cover reveal exclusively on my blog.
Am I willing to publish a guest post?
Yes. But again unique content catch – I will not accept to publish pre-cooked guest posts. Guest posts text should be original and not published before. The topic should be relevant to the other topics covered on this blog.
