This form is for those interested in signing up to be on my review team. Understand, in doing this, there are a few things I will expect from you. However, I will not expect you to read any book you are not interested in or are unable to put the effort toward, but kindly say so ahead of time. Please read the following points before filling out this form.
-Give honest, respectful opinions.
-If you receive an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy), keep materials you see pertaining to my books secret until I'm ready to announce them to the public. Be mindful of spoilers too.
-Please do not trash-talk me or my work if you don't enjoy it. We are adults, and I know my writing may not be what you are interested in, or what you consider "good." That is okay, and I respect that everyone has their own likes and dislikes. There are ways of letting others know your opinion without being mean.
-I know that things happen in life, and my book is the least of your worries, but I ask you to stick to our discussed deadlines, or let me know when you can't. It is frustrating to wait for a review someone promised by a certain time, only to have them blow you off when the time comes, especially after giving them a free novel.
-It is against book site policies to pay for reviews, not to mention it feels unethical to me. Because of this, I do not pay for reviews. However, if you sign up to be on my team, you will receive the eBook you want without charge.
-You must be able to post your review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble, without restrictions, at the very least. You can read Amazon's review guidelines at https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201929730
. I would also ask you to post it on Goodreads.com, your blog, or social media if possible.
-If you are interested in reviewing a series of mine, I ask that you read and review each book of the series in sequential order to receive the next one released.
-If you agree to read and review one of my novels, but don't without giving me a reason, I will take you off my list. Again, I don't have the funds to feed people's reading habits for free.
I'm sorry for sounding so harsh on some of these points. I appreciate the time and effort reviewers put toward helping authors. Our success and growth depends greatly on your feedback. And, though I won't pay for reviews, I will supply you with free books in return, as well as help on your blogs if I'm able to. I'm always interested in takeovers, interviews, and other events you may need assistance with. Often times, I give swag too.
If you agree to the above expectations, I invite you to fill out the form below and join my team! None of the information you submit will be shared. Please read Amazon's review etiquette as well, to eliminate the chance of you reviews getting deleted by them.
Thanks for all you do, and I look forward to working with you,
