General Policies and Sponsorship and Affiliate Disclosure
This blog is written and edited by me. I take pride in giving my honest opinion and assessment of all the products that are submitted to me and experiences I may be given. For questions about this blog, please contact me using the contact form below.
I reserve the right to opt out of publishing a review if I do not feel that I can be fair about my opinion. As the owner of this blog, I may accept forms of cash advertising, or sponsorship. There might also be affiliate links within posts. (It takes time and effort to create and maintain this blog – no one likes to work for free.)
I will and do accept and keep free products, services, and other forms of compensation from organizations and individuals. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.
I believe in honesty and integrity; therefore, I will always give my personal opinion-whether or not it shows a product or company in a favorable light. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The views and opinions expressed in this blog are purely and entirely my own. I do not claim to be nor make an effort to be an expert on a certain topic, product or service. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement. All product or service claims should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
If / When you make a purchase after clicking on my links, I do not receive any information about what was purchased, how much was purchased, or who even made a purchase at all. That information is kept between the service (i.e. Amazon, Book of the Month, etc.) and the purchaser. The only information given to me is that someone made a purchase of some kind after visiting my site.
Your privacy is important to me and I will not participate in anything if I think that privacy is being violated in any way.

Books Submitted for Review
Please take a moment to look at my previous reviews to get familiar with my style of reviewing as well as the books I like to read.
Understand that this blog is not magic – it takes a long time to create content, produce graphics, engage with my readers (to keep them coming back), not to mention time to read the books. If I’m going to put your book on my precious ‘to read’ list, please respect my time and effort. I will take you seriously as an author if you will take me seriously as a content creator.
The following are my terms for receiving and reviewing books:
I much prefer real, physical copies of books, I find I can read them faster and appreciate them more. However, I do have a tablet if an electronic copy is all you’re able to send.
As an aspiring author myself, I do not wish to post any negative reviews of books sent to me. If I do not like your book, I will simply just not post a review. I think it’s much better that I say nothing than to say something that could damage your career and future book sales.
*That being said, if I like the book, I will also leave a review on Goodreads and Amazon.
I am a member of Amazon, Barns & Noble, and Books-a-million affiliates, so upon reading and reviewing the book, I will encourage people to buy it from those vendors, through my links, in order to earn a small commission to further support my blog – no one likes to work for free.
*If your book is not available to purchase on these sites, please suggest another means of directing people to purchase that benefits us both.
After reading and reviewing, I will promote both the review and the book itself on various social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest) so I would greatly appreciate it if you’d return the favor by at least sharing links to the review to your followers.
Check the sidebar for links to all of my social media pages.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
