*Updated 23 May 2017
PLEASE NOTE THAT I’M CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING ANY REVIEWS. I WILL READ AND REVIEW ANY CURRENT BOOKS I HAVE ALREADY COMMITTED TO AND THAT’S IT. MY SCHEDULE IS A BIT HECTIC AT THE MOMENT. THANK YOU.
I do accept offers to review from authors and publishers. If I decide to review the book I usually state in the review where I got it from italicised in the post. I do accept requests from self-published authors and indie publishers. Please note that by emailing me, I’ll take it as you having read and understood the terms of my review policy.
I can choose whether or not to accept or decline requests regardless of my policy. It all depends on a time frame. If you need a review to be up by the first week of April for e.g. and it’s the last week of March, chances are that I’ve already filled up a spot as I only post twice a week at this current time.
Genres I do accept:
- Young Adult Fiction
- New Adult Fiction
- Historical Fiction
- Realistic Fiction
- Science Fiction
- Biographies (of Historical Figures)
- Comics/Sequential Art
Genres I do not accept:
- Non-fiction (excluding Biographies of Historical figures)
- Novels where the main feature is Romance
- Religion and/or Spirituality
Formats I accept:
- eBook: mobi. and epub are preferred (If I’m really interested in the synopsis and PDF is the only format you have I’ll accept that as well)
- Physical copies
If a book review needs to be up as soon as possible I try to get to the book and have the review posted within a month. Please take note that I have other books to review as well and won’t always say yes even if your book does interest me.
If I absolutely cannot fit your book into my schedule I will tell you so in a reply email. If I’m not intrigued by the synopsis and the book does not seem like it’ll be my cup of tea, I’ll tell you. I’m not too strict in my accepting and declining process and I am here as a reviewer to help authors get their books out there.
I only check review requests that come through to my email: email@example.com. Do not send requests via my Instagram or Twitter.
Places where I review books:
- On this current blog (diminishingthoughts.wordpress.com)
- Goodreads: DiminishingThoughts
I post links to my reviews on twitter: @d_m_thoughts
See my rating system here.
I’m honest in all my reviews and the author has no influence on what my rating will be. I account for writing style, plot and whether the story as a whole appealed to me or not. If I disliked a book I will state it in my review and I try not to be mean or disrespectful to the author.
Many of my reviews are of books I own or borrowed unless otherwise stated.
I am not open to doing Blog Tours, Giveaways, Author Interviews or Guest Posts.
