I suppose this was long awaited. I should have done it a long time ago, but it's better late then never!
I love to read. That is obviously. So this will be a few guidelines of how I work my reviews and how you can send me reviews and everything else you need to know.
Let's start with my stats. As of December 2011, I have about 33,000 pageviews. I have 332 followers. I started my blog on January 21, 2008, for about two years I was running a very successful blog. On December 14, 2009, just about a month shy of my 2 year blogversary, I decided to take an indefinite break from my blog for personal reasons. On November 27, 2011, I returned to blogging. My blog was successful before and continues to be successful with each passing day.
I love to review books. LOVE to. You can email me with the email address given in the sidebar and I can get back to you really fast as I stalk gmail. I will only read Young Adult (YA) books. I will occasionally read adult or tween books, but it depends on the characters ages. Yes, I'm a little picky of what I read.
I love romance, any kind. First love, gay/lesbian, affairs. I love any kind. Now, I could name all the types of books I like, but it would be easier to name the types of books I don't like. Which is fantasy, I don't like fantasy at all. Now here's where the confusing part comes in. I don't like Fantasy, but I love paranormal. If you don't know the difference or aren't sure, contact me and I'll let you know. :) I am also not such a big fan of historical fiction.
As of right now, I accept review copies. I don't like self-published books, sorry. I will take books that are from a large publisher or small. I will not accept e-books though, sorry! My vision is already poor.
This is important: I cannot guarantee a review. There are some books I just get bored with so I don't see the need to keep going unless other reviewers say it's worth it. Or other stuff that I just can't get through. At other the year and one month I've been doing my blog, it's only happened once. I tried really hard to get through it too.
If this still works for you email me with the email address given in the sidebar! I will get back to you soon enough!
Interviews or Guest Blogs or On The Outside:
I love to speak with authors! I will gladly do an interview/guestblog or my OTO feature with one.
Interviewing: For interviews I require that I have read the book. If you want to offer a copy for me to review to do an interview, that would be awesome.
Guest Blogs: I love having authors do guest blogs. If you contact me wanting to do a interview and I haven't read your book or you don't have a review copy to give me, then you for sure can do a guest blog! I have no problem with that. Though you might need to come up with the topic of it on your own as I don't have a great imagination for that. :)
On The Outside: OTO is a feature I've been doing for a few months. I post these every Monday unless there is a holiday. OTO is a feature where authors talk about the outside of their books. Like how the cover and/or title came to be, what they think of it, or whatever! I have a schedule for this so you might not get a spot that works for the release of your book if you have one, but I try to schedule them closes to any important dates you have.
I will gladly hold a contest for you! Whether its a signed book, or a gift, or anything else. I'll need to know the exact prize, the mailing restrictions, and if you have a preference for the time the contest is. Just email me!
Fellow YA book reviewing bloggers or authors with blogs, you you want your link on my blog leave a email or a comment and I'll get it done!
Hope this helps!
