Disclosures & Policies

Books ~
I receive copies of books (ebooks, digital, Advance Reader Copies/ARC's, and final print copies) from authors, publishers, blogger programs, and publicity tours. Occasionally, I receive multiple copies of the same book at different stages in the publication process, like an ARC for an endorsement or a publicity tour and then a final copy from a blogger program for review or as a gift from the author. I will always note at the end of my reviews if I've received a complimentary copy of the book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Otherwise, the book is from my personal library or borrowed. I am not required to post a positive review, and I am not compensated for my reviews. I do NOT sell any of the books I receive. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Reviews ~
I always aim to write honest reviews. However, as an author myself, I always try to be positive with my reviews. If I dislike a book so much that I do not feel I can write a review, and I am not required to write a review, then I will contact the author about the situation.
Review and Tour Requests ~
At this time, I have to be very conscientious about the amount of reviews and tours that I commit to due to my own writing schedule! If I have to decline, I'm so sorry! *sends hugs* It's really not personal! Currently, I am only set up to review print copies of books, but occasionally I will agree to read a manuscript in a Word document for endorsement. You may send your requests by filling out the "Contact Me" form found at the top of the page.
