Unsolicted Books: I cannot guarantee reviews of unsolicited books. I would prefer to be contacted before you send unsolicated books. I would be willing to spot light unsolicated books either as a In My Mailbox post or as a post with the book and about the book.

Review Schedule: I do have a schedule that I try to keep in regards to the blog. I try to post at least 5-7 post a week. I will be willing to adjust it should you require a review sooner.

Reviews of ARCs/Galleys: I have to say upfront that I don’t post any reviews of ARCs/Galleys until the book is published unless otherwise stated by author or publicists.

Review Timeline: If you are sending me an ARC/Galley of a soon to be released book my review will only be posted once the book is published either that day or within that month. As for everything else I try to get my reviews up as soon as possible.

Compensation: I do not receive compensation for reviewing books. If you would like to advertise on my blog then please feel free to contact me at the above contact form.

Book Formats: I will read finish copies, Advance Readers Copies, and Galleys. Depending on the ebook  I might be willing to review ebooks.

What happes to the ARCs/Galleys once I have finished reading them?  I do not sell the ARCs/Galleys that are sent to me for review, but I do pass them on to fellow bloggers or I keep them in my own personal library.

Blog Tours: I currently take part in First Wild Card Tours, TLC Book Tours and publishers book tours.

Guest Posts & Author Interviews: If its something of interest I do allow this on my blog. I prefer unique guest posts.

PLEASE NOTE:
I have noticed lately books seem to be getting lost in the mail (either within Canada Post or coming across the border) if you have sent a book and haven’t seen me post a review or show cased it in a In My Mailbx post then please contact me to see if I have received it yet.

PLEASE NOTE:
That I also except prducts to test as well. If its something that I am interested in or I think my readers will be interested in then I will agree to take part. Please feel free to contact me at the above address with “Product Testing” in the subject line.
