Reviewing Policy

in libris veritas (3)

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my reviewing policies. Make sure to read everything!

General Info:

I do support and read independent and small publisher authors.

I am currently working through a backlog of books and living a pretty hectic life, so I am not currently accepting books for review.

I am not currently open to participating in Blog Tours, Cover Reveals, and Blitzes. Nor am I open to guest posts and/or guest posts.

I accept both print and ebook formats for review. I prefer Kindle (.mobi) format, but I can also read PDFs. I also accept audiobooks for review. I prefer an audible code in which to download it, or a physical disc set.

If you would like me to review your book by a certain date you should contact me at least a month in advance!

Genres I Accept:

  • Young Adult, Middle Grade, New Adult, and Adult
  • Fantasy (High/Epic, Paranormal, etc.)
  • Science Fiction (Futuristic, Dystopian, Post Apocalyptic, etc.)
  • Horror
  • Contemporary (Only Young Adult and New Adult)
  • Mystery
  • Erotica

Genres I DO NOT Accept:

  • Religious Fiction
  • Non-Fiction

What To Expect in My Reviews:

  • Book Cover
  • Book Info (page numbers, publisher, genre)
  • Purchase Links
  • Summary (From Goodreads)
  • My Review (At least 3 paragraphs)
  • Rating (.5 to 5 Stars)

All reviews will be honest and true to me. I will list things I like and dislike in each review unless under very rare circumstances I can’t find things I dislike or like in the book. I do NOT bash or insult authors, fans, or publishers. I reserve the right to DNF (Did Not Finish) any book, and to write a review based on that.

Where It Will Be Posts:

  • In Libris Veritas
  • Goodreads
  • Amazon

If you would like me to post the review on a site not listed please let me know.

How Long Will it Take Me:

This will vary depending on the book, how many review books I have, and whatever is going on in my personal life. However, if you do have a time frame for me to have it reviewed by I WILL get it done, provided you get the book to me in a timely fashion.


  • Send unsolicited ebooks for review – If you send your book attached to your request, please note that I have NOT agreed to review your book and you should wait until I have before sending it.

Please label your email correctly, for example – Book Review: My Book Title Here

It may take me up to 2 weeks to respond to your email, however, if you receive no reply it is safe to assume I am not interested in reviewing your book or I have no available spots on my blog.

Please make sure you read this whole page before sending a request.

  1. Do you do reviews of horror anthologies in ebook form? I have three collections of horror short stories I’d love for you to review.

    Thank you!

    Hello! I was wondering if you review audiobooks? I’d love to have you review some of my narrations?

    • Hi Meghan! I do review audios! It’s something I started doing at the end of last year and just haven’t thought to update this page with that info yet. However, I’m not taking individual review requests right now because I have a lot on my plate at the moment.

      I see you requested an Audavoxx review for one of your audios though so if you continue to request through that outlet I may be able to get around to your audios there! While I can’t guarantee a review from that sign up sheet if I do review it I will post it here 3 to 7 days after the review goes live in the newsletter. (It should be noted: reviews will be posted here, audible, and my goodreads page even when not approved for the newsletter, as they are my personal sites where I keep up with my own reading).

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
