Book Review Policy-Revised 1/10/16

 BOOK REVIEW POLICY REVISED 1/10/16

Greetings,

Revised  1-10-16

UNFORTUNATELY I’M NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW REVIEW REQUESTS AT THIS TIME. REAL LIFE OBLIGATIONS HAVE BEEN OVERWHELMING AND I HAVE VERY LITTLE FREE TIME IN WHICH TO DO REVIEWS.  I APOLOGIZE AND HOPE TO POST REVIEWS AS I FIND TIME TO. DANIEL IS STILL ACCEPTING A LIMITED AMOUNT OF REVIEW SUBMISSIONS, HIS PILE IS CURRENTLY OVERFLOWING AS WELL.

I’m Heather, proprietor and webmaster of Earth’s Book Nook. At the moment, I’m extremely behind in reviews and I have no idea when I will get to my current review submissions. All I can offer at this time is for new books that catch my interest to be put on my overflowing TBR pile. If you are under a strict deadline and need it reviewed sooner, all I can promise is to look at your book and see if I am able to review it in the time-frame you request. I will try to answer your rush requests as quickly as I can.  I also do blog tours, hops, author interviews, guest posts, book promos, character interviews, cover reveals, and other related marketing in lieu of a review. I host for several blog tour companies.

FOR THOSE SEEKING A REVIEW: AS OF 1/10/16

Due to the overwhelming demand for our book reviews, here is an addendum to our book review policy.  We are excited that so many authors and publishers are interested in our reviews and our Facebook page is over 1000 followers now. Please bear in mind that we do not get paid for our reviews and do them on our free time. We generally try to answer all emails with an approval or denial in a timely manner. 

HEATHER’S APPROVAL/DENIAL POLICY

AS OF 1/10/16

UNFORTUNATELY I’M NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW REVIEW REQUESTS AT THIS TIME. REAL LIFE OBLIGATIONS HAVE BEEN OVERWHELMING AND I HAVE VERY LITTLE FREE TIME IN WHICH TO DO REVIEWS. CURRENTLY MY REVIEW PILE HAS OVER 1000 BOOKS RIGHT NOW. I APOLOGIZE AND HOPE TO POST REVIEWS AS I FIND TIME TO.

I’ve accepted an executive research assistant position at BTS Book Reviews, now under new ownership, and would love to see some of my followers check them out.

Please check out BTS BOOK REVIEWS

They have excellent reviewers there as well as several promotional opportunities at reasonable prices.

If I say I will put you on my review pile, I’m not going to make a guarantee that I will get to your book, it just means that I find your book interesting enough for my review pile. At this time, I’ve got over 500 books that interest me on that pile. I have had to become very genre specific with the books that I add to my pile due to the overwhelming amount of non genre requests that I get. For future requests, I will only be accepting books of the following genres:

Fantasy

  • Epic
  • Historical, if the time period interests me
  • YA
  • Urban
  •  Contemporary
  • Paranormal and paranormal romance
  • Dark

Steampunk

  • I accept most of these if they tickle my fancy

Horror

  • Psychological
  • Some zombie if they have a good plot line

At this time, I WILL NOT be accepting the following genres. If I receive any requests of these genres, you will be sent a respectful decline. And believe me I receive these all the time.

  • ROMANCE-except for paranormal.
  • THRILLERS
  • MYSTERIES
  • SELF-HELP
  • CHRISTIAN LIT
  • COZY MYSTERIES
  • NON FICTION
  • BIOGRAPHIES
  • AUTOBIOGRAPHIES
  • GAME REQUESTS
  • GRAPHIC NOVELS
  • SUSPENSE

There are only so many hours in the day and I have a family that I need to spend time with as well as two jobs. As much as I love to read, the requests are getting overwhelming and I’m going on hiatus. I hate to say no to all the authors out there but I must be very specific with my approvals now.
DANIEL’S REVIEW POLICY

Daniel only accepts the below genres. He also works as a full time librarian. He is getting swamped with review requests as well; so he cannot guarantee how quickly he will get to your request. If you need it rushed, please request in your review and he will decide if he is able to work with your deadline. If not, you will probably be put on your his list with no known review time.

FANTASY & HORROR

SEE GENRES BELOW

  • YA
  • PARANORMAL ROMANCE
  • SOME EPIC IF IT TICKLES HIS FANCY
  • PSYCHOLOGICAL, SUCH AS STEPHEN KING/DEAN KOONTZ

I want to thank you for stopping by my page and considering me for review of your book.
