Review Policy

Everything posted on this blog is my opinion (save guest posts, guest reviews, and interviews). I always post my 100% honest opinion. A review is not influenced by the fact that I received a free/discounted item, nor do I ever change my reviews based on seller/supplier requests (If a seller does contact me and ask me to change my review, I add to the review that they did so, but I do not change the review).

I cannot review a book if it is a continuation of a series or a sequel, and I have not read the first book(s). Please contact me about series reviews.

Books are given priority by publication date, not necessarily on a first-come first-served basis. I will review all unpublished books first, and published books second.

I will send the review to the publisher, author, source etc. as soon as I have finished it, but if the book publication is not scheduled for some time, I may wait to publish the review on the blog until closer to the publication date. With my e-mail, I will include a date the review will be live on the blog. I will send a link only by request.

I will usually post a review for every book I read. I cannot guarantee that I will finish the book, and I cannot guarantee that the review will be positive, but if I read it or any part of it, I will review it. Some exceptions may apply.

Please do not e-mail me and ask when a review is coming.

I will post a rating in a basic format of #/5 stars, give a synopsis, critique the characters and plot, and touch a little on the writing and prose. I will always mention sexual content, violence, and language, and leave a recommendation of the age group the book will appeal to.

I will always post my 100% honest opinion.

My opinion is founded with the presuppositions of the Christian Berean nondenominational church. This may or may not affect my opinion of the book (see my disclaimer).

Contest Policy
For physical prizes, I ask for mailing addresses for contests so I can forward them directly to the publisher (see privacy policy) or mail the prize myself.

For digital prizes, I send you a link to a page where you can download your prize. Your prize will be password protected, and will only allow one download, so please make sure you're ready to download it when you go to the page!

There is no refund/exchange for prizes lost in the mail.

Any contest/giveaway winners under the age of 13 must have parent/legal guardian permission to enter a contest.

If you are interested in having me host your contest, please email me.

Privacy Policy

I will never under any circumstances give/sell your information to anybody.

FTC Disclaimer
Because of the FTC Regulation put out in December 2009...
The FTC will require that writers on the Web clearly disclose any freebies or payments they get from companies for reviewing their products.

I am posting this disclosure as an all encompassing disclaimer.

My posts before November of 2016 may not have disclaimers in the post text itself, due to not fully understanding the nature of this law. I am currently working to go back through and add said disclaimer one post at a time (but that is over 1000 posts, so please be patient with me).

My posts after November of 2016 all have a disclaimer in the body of the text.

Where do I get my Products

I receive items to review from various suppliers, publishers, and authors for free or a discounted price.  I do not keep track of the source of the item, which helps me remain unbiased.

After I review them, the items I receive are used as prizes for giveaways, given to my local library , brought to my used book store, or kept in my own collection. Items are not sold for profit, but are occasionally donated for tax credit.
I reserve the right to post whatever I want about whatever I review on this blog, because of my rights as a U.S. Citizen, which include Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press.

I reserve the right to post a negative review.

I reserve the right not to review a book I requested or received.
