As of 21 October 2012.
As much as it pains me to say this, I am currently not accepting any offers for book review. I am very backed up and these last months of 2012 will be so hectic that I might not have time for anything else other than my job and home life. I truly am trying my fastest and hardest to work through all these books and I appreciate the trust you put on me. I feel bad that I am failing to fill these requests but sometimes, life happens.
I hope you understand. See you in 2013!
If you are an author or a publisher and you have a book that you would like me to read and review, kindly read this page before sending me a message. I am not known to refuse a free book. But I am very behind in my reading list right now so I may have to say no to some offers. I prefer physical books over digital copies but if your book only comes in ebook form, I prefer PDF or EPUB format. I like to read books from many different genres. However, as with all people, I have preferences that may influence my opinion of your work. The current reviews posted here do not fully reflect my taste in reading. These are my preferred genres: Historical Fiction (especially if they are set in Renaissance Europe) Mystery/Thriller Short Stories True Crime Military History Contemporary Fiction Zombie Horror Children’s Literature I am open to reading Young Adult, Self-Help, General Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, Erotica, Poetry, etc. as well but I will be very selective when it comes to those genres. But I am sorry to say that I will not read any Christian Literature, Western, YA Paranormal, and YA Vampire Fiction. I always give an honest review, whether I am being compensated or not. And yes, I will still review your work even if I did not like it. But I will never ever insult or demean a book/author that I did not like. These are personal opinions; constructive criticism that I hope the author will honor. Titles that have yet to be released have priority over the other books that I receive (provided they are in my possession BEFORE the release date). Also, books that I receive directly from the author have priority over the ones I get from GoodReads First Reads and LibraryThing Member Giveaways. I do not have a fixed reading schedule so do not fret if I still have not reviewed your work. I will get to it… eventually. Unfortunately, I do not host guest bloggers, book tours or author interviews simply because I do not have time for them. I may have a giveaway in the future but right now, this is a book review blog (with a few discussion topics here and there). I do have a nine-to-five job. The only time I get to read is after work and the weekends. So I apologize in advance if I take a while. All reviews will be automatically cross-posted to GoodReads, LibraryThing, Smashwords (if I got it from there), Amazon.com, and Shelfari. Other sites can be included by request. If you have any other questions, just leave me a comment. Make sure you leave your e-mail address so I can reply to you privately. Or you can contact me on GoodReads! Kindly give me a day or two to get back to you. Thank you very much and I am very much looking forward to reading your work!
All the best,
PS: Authors, readers, and follow bloggers! If you liked what you see, a little donation would be a big help. This will not at all affect my reviews but this is one step closer to my own webhost (and WP.org) and more good books to read. Thank you so very much!
