Review Policy

My REVIEW POLICY
-I AM currently not accepting books for review, thank you for understanding.- 

Genres I Read:
  • Young Adult: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Romance, Contemporary. 
  • Adult: Paranormal, Romance, Historical Romance, Urban Fantasy, Erotica, Contemporary,
  • New Adult
  • Historical Fiction
(Really: a little of this & a little of that)
  • I do accept  self published novels! Shoot me an email and I will gladly take a look into your book! If it doesn't appeal to me, I will let you know. I would appreciate after that, you do not ask again. No, usually means no the 2nd time around for me to. 
I will only accept books that I really think I will enjoy.  I always try to post my reviews in a timely manner, but if it's awhile before the book is released than I will wait until closer to release date. I generally post the week of the books release date unless you request otherwise. If you want your review posted sooner, or later please specify.
  • If the book Does NOT appeal to me. I will let you know & I will tell you why. I will not finish, nor will I write a review for a book that I DNF'd. Only if I finished and rated the book, accordingly.
I will post a very honest review. (honest being the key term here. I will not sugar coat my review. This meaning, if I did not like the book, but I strongly like you as an author. I will tell you the truth [even if I don't know you] I feel that is what we are here for. To rate. Sometimes we might offend. I mean nothing in a negative way to you. I will be honest.)  I will take the time to read, and love your book. To get the best review that I can. And promote it as well. But, if I do not like it. I will not bash your book, or you. I understand that this is your work. Your time. Your love. I will honestly state why I did not like it. Or why I did not finish it. Honestly. Sincerely.
  • PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE ME A BOOK TO READ IF I HAVE SAID NO. I WILL NOT READ IT. I SAID NO, FOR THE REASON I WOULD NOT LIKE IT. I WAS HONEST. I FEEL DOING THAT IS A LITTLE PUSHY. I WILL NOT READ IT.
I post every review I write on Goodreads & Amazon/Amazon UK, Book Depository. I also use Twitter. Where I post links to my blog. Where the review can be seen. @Loretta_Lynn86
  • I am also a member of Book Blogs 
  • do not read outside of the five genres stated above. If I do, ever. It is not a review book I try new genre's on. I think that would be unfair to you as an author, because I had not read that genre, or liked it before!
  • Any books that I receive are from promotional purposes. I should not be charged any fee's. 
  • I will never sale your arc. ever.
  • If this book, is used for a tour, I will very much take care of it. 
Some things to consider when you email me for a 'Review Request':
  • Courtesy. Remember I am a person too. I have a life outside of blogging. This is not my JOB, but it is my Passion. I love reading. Understand - I do have life to live as well.   
  • Please include links to your book. Amazon | Goodreads | Something. Please It helps when I want to look into your book more.
  • Deadline: If you NEED your book reviewed by a specific date SAY so. Or I will not be reviewing it until I have the other review books, that were before you, read. This will also help me in deciding to review it or not! Example: You book may sound like something that I want to read. BUT you need a review by ____ date. I would look at my schedule. Factor in Life, and then make my decision. I would also state WHY I will not review your book. RATHER it be your -time frame- or I am just not -interested-. PLEASE do not be offended if I say NO, due to not thinking I would like it. I mean, I would not want to read it, even though I would not be interested in it just to NOT LIKE it. I stick to my genre mainly. So please understand this.
  • Contact me via EMAIL for a REVIEW REQUEST: I will not answer Goodreads Comments | Twitter @Mentions | FB Wall Posts | No. I will ignore you. Email me. Personally.
  • MY NAME: My name is not: Hey | Blogger | What's up Blogger Girl (YES, this has happened) | Yo, | It is: Loretta | Between The Pages | Mrs. Davis - Respect & courtesy. I would NOT address you as "Hey you author that wrote this book".
If you would like for me to review your book, or have any questions, PLEASE contact me at:
Lorettadavis@suddenlink.net
Please use MY NEW Blog account Email.
BTP_Reviews@yahoo.com
