Review Policy

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
  • Non-fiction
  • Memoir

Genres I will NOT review

  • Romance/erotica
  • Chick lit
  • Religious
  • YA
  • Sci-fi/fantasy
  • Poetry

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!
