Review Set Up and Time Frame
Blog tours, book blitz and daily posting (up to six times a day), styled photos,  while reading the book will accompany your detailed review package.
 
The total time for a review depends on a number of factors such as number chapters and/or pages, my personal life and full-time job. This time frame doesn’t take into account any emergencies that may happen.
Books must be received on time in order for your review to be posted within the time frame agreed upon.
Late books will go in the next available time frame. Please take into account carrier issues may happen beyond our control. I will try to stick as close to the time frame as possible. Please note this may not happen.
Please ensure that any hardback or paperback books are sent via USPS or UPS with a trackable method.
 
My reviews are 100% honest regarding characters, setting, plot, format, story line, outcome, and writing style of the book. I do not pad reviews for anyone.
 
If I am unable to finish your book due to an emergency or I cannot generally get into the book, I will notify you via email within 24 hours. 
I would love to respond to every review request, however, that is just not possible. I will do my best to let you know if my time schedule permits me to review your book.
 
Once you review an estimate fee sheet and it is return signed by you or your authorized representative, you agree to my review policy.
 
Update
This Review Policy was last updated on: Saturday, June 30th, 2018.
 
Should I update, amend or make any changes to my book review policy, those changes will be posted here.
