While not frequent, I have had a few direct inquiries from authors to review their books, so I thought it would be a good time to put up a standard set of policies for anyone who might be interested in having me check out their work!
- If you’re on NetGalley, feel free to send me an email with the title of your book and I’ll look to see if it might fit into my review schedule. My TBR list changes frequently based on how much time I have and what I’m in the mood to read, so this is the absolute best way to make it onto my reading pile. (Plus, they track your stats, so it’s not a good idea to agree to review a book on NetGalley if you’re not going to follow through!)
- If NetGalley isn’t an option, but you have a publisher, have your publisher send an email with a short synopsis of the book and reviewer’s format options (mobi file, paperback ARC, etc.) and I’ll look it over and get back to you.
- If you’re self-publishing and not on NetGalley, send me an email! I’m happy to read self-published/indie books, but because this blog is a hobby (and therefore my time is limited) I’ll want a bit more information before I accept a title for review. In addition to a synopsis, I’d like to know what stage of the process the book is in (first edits done, final copy, etc.) and whether you had an outside person proofread it for content and/or copy-editing.
