REVIEW POLICY

FROM OCTOBER 2018

Whats Happening?
I will still be reading and will continue to add my reviews to Amazon US, Amazon UK and Goodreads. Will I continue to add them to this blog? That is my intention, though how popular my blog will be without giveaways and promotional posts, I don't really know yet. Dependent on the issues listed below I may join in a few Blog Tours but not on the scale I was doing before.

The reasons why its happening. . . 
My dad now lives with me and has officially been diagnosed with mixed dementia, which is vascular dementia & Alzheimers so now I am 24/7 to him as well as continuing to care 24/7 for my mum who lives with me (my mum and dad are divorced). I am also continuing to try to help my daughter get her Nail technician business busier. Annnd then there's the list of my own health issues, EDS(thought to be type 3), Menieres Disease, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Migraines and  Rhinitis, Allergies etc etc.

It is my hope to continue reading (as relaxation "me" time).

I have had my reading, reviewing, blogging time drastically cut down but I am still reading and reviewing as well as adding my reviews to my blog but at a much slower pace. 
At this time I am not doing promotional only posts, though do occasionally join in with a Blog Tour or two! 
I can no longer 100% to specific timescales as I never know when a health issue, either my own, or my daughters, mum's or dads will occur and I hate promising to do something and then not being able to follow through with the commitment.

So you still want me to read and review your book?
First of all, thank you for still being interested me  solely as a reader, please take a minute to read my review policy below.....

MY REVIEW POLICY

GENRES I ACCEPT
  • YA
  • Paranormal
  • Sci-Fi (Not Star Trek/Star Wars)
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian/Post Apocalyptic
  • Paranormal Romance (including mildly steamy- will be post with a warning for young people).
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Zombie (like Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan or Generation Dead by Daniel Waters )
Even though the genre of your book may be listed above it is not a "set in stone guarantee that I will read it". I mean lets be honest here, not every book "grabs" you even if it is in a genre you usually read. If your genre is not listed above please ask me to take a look at your book, but please do not be offended if I say no, I would rather be honest about what I will and will not read. Also just because I may not read and review your book, it doesn't mean we can't do a promotional spotlight (my followers may still like your books) and of course we could also do an Author Interview, Cover Reveal, Guest Post or Excerpt.

GENRES I DONT ACCEPT
  • Religious books
  • Graphic Novels/Comic type
  • Anime or Manga
  • Middle Grade
  • Erotica
FORMATS I ACCEPT:
  • ARC'S / Galleys
  • eBooks (mobi or pdf or prc)
  • Bound books, ie paperbacks, hardbacks. 
  • Smashwords Coupons
  • Amazon Gifted Books

WHERE DO I POST MY REVIEWS?
  • Amazon UK & Amazon US 
  • Amazon CA (if requested to)
  • Barnes & Noble (if requested)
  • Goodreads
  • Netgalley (where applicable)
  • Edelweiss (where applicable)
  • Smashwords (if applicable)
  • On my blog of course!
If there is somewhere else you wish me to place the review, please request this and I will happily try my best to oblige.

PLEASE, KEEP THESE THINGS IN MIND
  • If you have sent me an e-mail to request a review and I don't answer, it is not because I don't want to read and review your book. It could be that I am ill or "busy with other commitments"
  • I read as much and as fast as I can. If you need a special date just let me know and we can try to arrange it, though I admit I am trying to be more relaxed in scheduling my reading due to my health & family issues.
  • I cannot guarantee that I will write a review within a set time limit or even at all. I do occasionally have a "Did Not Finish", when that happens I do still review what I read and explain the parts I did like as well as the explore the reasons why I couldn't finish the book. As yet being unable to write a review for a book I have read or classed as a DNF has never happened, but I need to add this point just in case it ever does occur.
SUBMITING A REVIEW REQUEST:
  • By far the best way to contact me is via email jeanz@btinternet.com 
  • Or via Goodreads my name/profile is Sandra "Jeanz" Richardson 

As always if you have any questions the best way to get in touch with me is via email and that email address is jeanz@btinternet.com


Finally thanks for dropping by!
