In the beginning of 2015 when I restarted KEEPER BOOKSHELF I didn’t set up a Review Request Policy… the blog was new and I really didn’t think there would be much need for it, yet — but I was wrong. So with apologies for the delay here is the official:
Review Request Policy for Keeper Bookshelf
While I do accept review requests, I cannot guarantee that I will pick your title to read and review… I may simply say “this isn’t something I’d be interested in but good luck”, it’s not meant to be rude but my time is important as well. I’m a reader who absolutely hates to leave DNF or 1 star reviews for any book… that said, I will go as low as 2 stars for something that simply wasn’t worth my time. Reviewing is a personal opinion, not everyone will agree with me – that’s okay.
Should there be a time frame when you absolutely must have a review done, please tell me that upfront so that I can make a decision based on my own schedule if I can accommodate your request. I try to get reviews up within a short period of time – but life happens. (I recently had my computer “blow up” on me and that delayed so much, so yes life does indeed happen)
However, “IF” you do not have a time frame of when your book must be reviewed by… then I’ll gladly read and review – on my time, and as soon as I can. That is the honest truth. I understand how important reviews are to authors. If you do not mind a delay of several weeks then send me the information through this email:
The genres that I read and review are:
Historical / Regency Romance
(some) MC or Military Romance
I operate several genre specific blogs so not only will your work be reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf – when it makes sense I will occasionally re-post a review about a week later on the genre specific blog that your book falls under.
This policy page will be revised once I am back to a realistic blogging schedule.
