I am not accepting most 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 horror, erotica, poetry ( unless it’s kid’s poetry), memoir, or excessively violent books. I don’t want religion, self-help, or politics as well. You must be a blog follower.
I rate on a scale of 1-5 stars. I will give 1 or 2 star reviews but explain my evaluations and give suggestions on how to improve. Read some of my tougher reviews and be sure you can handle honest feedback. I expect the same standard from indie writers as from traditionally published so make sure you’re submitting a well-edited book.
