Thank you for your interest in Books Speak Volumes! I am currently open to accepting books for review consideratoin. If you are a publisher, publicist, or author interested in having me review your book, please read these guidelines.
Genres I WILL review:
- Literary fiction
- Short stories
- Historical fiction
Genres I will NOT review
- Chick lit
At this time, I cannot accept e-books for review.
I do not accept self-published works, but I am happy to consider books from small or independent publishers.
Please note that sending me a book does not guarantee that I will review it on this blog. I try my best to review each book I receive, but I cannot promise to do so.
Sending me book for review consideration does not guarantee a favorable review. I always give my honest opinions about a book, positive or negative. Whatever my opinion of the book, my review will be thoughtful and mature.
In accordance with FTC guidelines, my review will include the disclaimer, “I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher/author in exchange for my honest review.” I will also note the source as “Provided by publisher for review” in the review’s header text.
In addition to posting the review here on my blog, I usually post my reviews on Goodreads.
If you believe you have a book that may interest me or have any questions about my policy, please send me a message via the contact form below. Thank you for your interest!
