Review Policy

NOTE: If you’re a reader seeking a review copy of any of my books, you can skip the steps below and send me an email: dontusethethreestones@gmail(dot)com If you are an author seeking reviews, keep reading …

I have decided to make BOOK REVIEWS a regular thing here on my blog!!!

Rating system is as follows:

5_55 STARS: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I WILL READ IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN! YOU HAVE TO READ IT TOO SO WE CAN FAN-GIRL TOGETHER!

4_54 STARS: I REALLY LIKE THIS BOOK AND TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT BUT PROBABLY WONT RE-READ IT.

3_5

3 STARS: LIKED IT AND RECOMMEND IT

2 STARS: THIS BOOK IS WELL-WRITTEN, BUT NOT FOR ME.  

1 STAR: DID NOT FINISH THIS BOOK


I will be taking formal requests for book reviews from Indie and self-published authors via this email: dontusethethreestones@gmail(dot)com. Please include any pertinent book info, i.e. blurb and category. Once I’ve had a chance to read about your book, I’ll contact you to let you know if it sounds like something I might like.  

My preferred genres are . . . well, I like lots of different kinds of books and am interested in expanding my literary horizons. I’m trying to get into Science Fiction, but have little interest in full-blown fantasy where there’s oddly-named contraptions or creatures. It can get to be too much to wrap my head around. I haven’t read many period-pieces or historicals, but wouldn’t mind if someone happens to send me one. I have read some erotica in the past, but won’t be posting reviews for any. Sorry. Steamy romance is fine. I don’t care for excessive use of foul language either, but if it’s part of the character and necessary to the world they live in, I might consider it.

*I will post my reviews here on my blog as well as amazon, smashwords, or goodreads if you provide the links!

**All of my reviews will be honest and respectful, and my own opinion. 

***I will contact the requesting party if the book review is fewer than 3 stars, so that you may decide if you want it posted or not. 

****Parties requesting book reviews must provide a copy of the book at their own expense.

Game ON!
