Review Policy (as of January 6, 2012):
Thank you for considering The Book Junkie’s Bookshelf to review your book(s). I really appreciate the opportunity. Also, thank you for stopping by my blog in the first place.
Here on The Book Junkie’s Bookshelf I am very selective about the genre’s I will accept for review. So books in ONLY the following genre’s will be considered:
- Romance – Historical, Contemporary, Suspense, Paranormal
- Urban Fantasy
- Bound Books
- E-Books (.pdf and .epub formats only)
At this time I only accept self-published novels on a limited basis. I do accept Independently Published novels but I will be very selective.
I am also interested in posting Press Releases on the blog if they are about a book(s) in any of the genre’s that I review. These Press Releases will be listed under my “News from the Shelf” posts.
I am also willing to host giveaways for books in the genre’s that I review. I DO NOT need to read and review your book(s) in order for the giveaway to take place.
I am also open to guest posts, author interviews, blog tours, etc.
Where will my reviews be posted?
In addition to the blog, I post my reviews on Goodreads.com mainly. NOTE: If you would like my review of your book to be posted anywhere else please include this information in your review request.
What additional information do I include in my reviews?
- Book Cover
- Author web presence (Facebook, Twitter, Website, etc.)
- A link to purchase book on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com and Bookdepository.com
- The Actual review
- Book Trailer – if it is available
Will I review every book that I receive for review?
If I am able to read the book in its entirety it will be reviewed. If I am unable to finish a book or I’m not able to get far enough into a book to feel comfortable writing a review, it will not be reviewed.
Can I promise a date a review will be posted by?
At this time I can honestly say no. Unless there is a date made in the initial review request. ARC’s – I promise to do my best to get the book read and review posted before or within 3 days of the books release.
