Submission Guidelines - Review Policy

I review books of all genres, fiction and non-fiction, that are considered clean reads—no explicit sex, no profanity, no excessive violence and no paranormal themes, such as ghosts, the occult, or vampires. Although I prefer clean reads, I do not review Christian fiction whose overall theme is religiously inclined. If you are uncertain if your book fits this description, please send me a synopsis of the book, and I will determine if it is a book I wish to review.

I reserve the right to accept or decline books for review. Please note all my reviews are an honest critique of your book. I read the whole book and I take the time to note character, setting and plot development. I aim to write a well-balanced professional review. I never sell any books I receive for review, however, I may host a giveaway, or pass them on to friends.

I only accept hard copies: galleys and ARCs are fine, no pdf files. If your book is an e-book, you may send me a hard copy of it, printed and bound. Self-published authors are welcome. Please do not send your book if it has not been professionally edited or proofread. I do not read manuscripts.

You will notice that I rate the books I review, however, this rating is not an indication of whether the book is poorly or well-written or if it's a good or a bad read. It is simply to guide readers who are seeking clean books to read. You will see a letter and perhaps a note next to the book title. The letters reflect the subjects being rated:
C = clean
S = sex
V = violence
P = profanity
PA = Paranormal
For example: A book may be rated as (P mild) for a few vulgar words.
