First Order of Business
I do not get paid or compensated for blogging or reviewing books. My reviews are on books that I purchased and are my personal copies (print or e-books), borrowed from friends, checked out at my local library, Advanced Readers Copyies (ARCs) or provided by the author or publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.
To Publishers and Authors:
I would love to read and review your books, whether they are new releases or have been out for months.
Genres I Love to Read
Genres I Will Also Read
some other genres (just ask me)
Genres I Don’t Particularly Like (But, if the story intrigues me I might read it.)
romance (unless paired with a genre I like, ex: paranormal romance)
I will read and review erotica but I won’t post the review on my blog.
If the book is in the middle of the series, I’d like to read the ones before so I completely understand the book I’m reviewing. I would be happy to post reviews on the previous books also if you’d like.
I accept ARCs and finished copies in print, pdf or mobi format for my Kindle. My acceptance of an ARC or copy of your book is not a guarantee of a review on the blog.
Published reviews reflect my personal opinion. There aren’t many books that I can say I absolutely hated. I’ll give an honest review whether it is positive or negative. I will never slander or trash an author or their work.
If I dislike a book, I have the right to not finish it and not review it. If I can’t finished the book for one reason or another, or if it’s taking me longer to get through than expected, I will let you know.
All reviews will be posted on Goodreads and Amazon. If you would like me to post it somewhere else, just let me know. If you would like to use part of a review for your publicity, please contact me first.
My Ratings (beginning 10/1/2013)
Just not for me.
Meh...didn't love it, didn't hate it.
Awesome! Read it!
BRILLIANT! Everyone should own it!
All review copies will be reviewed as soon as possible while integrated into my personal reading schedule (i.e. books that I have purchased for review). If it is for a book tour, I will have the review completed and guaranteed for publish on the agreed-upon date. I will attempt to contact you when the book review is scheduled to post and provide the link. If for some reason I'm not able to read and review the book by the scheduled date, I will let you know as soon as possible.
What Happens to the Books after My Review
If I absolutely loved it, I keep it. If the review copy is a final published version in print, I pass it along to my local public library. If it is a printed ARC, those are up for giveaways after the publication date. Review copies will be returned only if the author/publisher provides a SASE.
I will be happy to participate in your blog tour for cover reveals, release dates, or other special tours you have. I can post author interviews, top 10 lists, excerpts, cast photos, book trailers, and giveaways, or anything else you'd like me to post. Please contact me to schedule a blog stop.
I would be happy to do a beta read for you either on content or to find other errors. I would like to have enough time to do a thorough read through, but if you need it back rather quickly, please let me know.
I’m also an editor with Final-Edits.com. If you would like me to edit your book, please contact Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know that Lisah sent you!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or message me on my Facebook Page.
