No thanks to crowd-funding or kickstarter campaigns.
I am accepting paper books for review at this time.
I mostly review children’s picture books (85%), middle grade books, and young adult books. Please follow this blog to familiarize yourself with what I do. I do review the occasional adult book, especially those I think parents would be interested in. (I do not review books that have horror, erotica, religion, politics, excessive violence, born again, amateur self-help, true paranormal, angels, or saved by something. No animal exploitation, cult membership, racism, homophobia, misogyny, or hate literature of any kind. I will promote very few memoirs. They must have something exceptional to say. No poetry, unless it’s kid’s poetry.
You must be a blog follower.
I also accept picture books for review from the artist. I am not an arts major, so the review will not be an intensive analysis of the art work although I always comment on the art in books I review. For an example of how I review an artist’s work, go here on or after March 27, 2017.
I am accepting requests for reviews. Interviews are presently scheduled every Wednesday up to July 2017. I am running a series called “Three Random Questions.Please follow to familiarize yourself with my interviews. I do not send a canned list of questions but research each author and tailor the questions to them and their work.
A promotional page for a book can be requested at any time. I will only run a maximum of one per week. You must send me a printed copy of the book for my Little Free Library. A Promotion page may include 3-4 pictures, links, a blurb, and other information. No more than 800 words please. Unless I have reviewed at least one of your books (favourably), a promotion does not mean I will endorse your work. If your book captures my eye, I will probably review it. If it receives 3-5 starts, I may ask you for an interview.
Guest posts are welcome to a maximum of one per week. Follow my blog to get an understanding of what I publish.A guest post should be 900-1200 words.These are suitable topics:
- Book reviews of picture books, early chapter books, and young adult books.
- Information, inspiration, education, and creation pertaining to children and families.
- An article about writing for children or with children. Make this helpful and relevant to my readers. This should not be an account of your books.
- Tips for reading to and with children.
