I'm always humbled when authors approach me to review their work. That being said I do have a few policies.
1. I only review print copies. No ebooks, epubs, etc. I want a physical copy because I roll old school.
2. I need at least 4 to 6 weeks to publish a review. Usually, it's way sooner than this, but I like to have some cushion in case I have a backlog.
I post reviews to my blog, goodreads, librarything, pinterest, and amazon. In the past year I have received over 70 books from publishers for review and about 12 books directly from authors. Let me know if you have any further questions.
