Thank you for visiting and considering me to review your product or book.
My family is a good-sized, blended family, consisting of myself – Sharon, my partner – Chris, 2 grown children, 1 middle school-age child, and 1 cat. Both the grown children attend college and live at home with us.
Items I will review:
I am open to review requests, especially those related to books, movies, and leisure activities. I may or may not accept your product or book based solely upon my own discretion. If the product or book does not appeal to me, my family, or what I deem to be of interest or value to my readers, I will most likely not accept it for review. Please feel free to contact me, I am willing to consider almost anything for review. All I ask is that you please keep it clean. Feel free to contact me with your request or questions.
I am also happy to consider copies of books from authors, publishers and publicists for review and/or giveaways. I own a Kindle and am available to read and review electronic books. I am happy to consider most types and genres of books, but I am not too fond of straight romance novels. My favorite genres include Psychological Thrillers, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Business (especially entrepreneurial or marketing related), Self-Help, Motivational, Crafts, Cookbooks, and nearly all other forms of fiction.
What you can expect from my reviews:
My book reviews include cover art, a description of the book (generally taken from Amazon, Goodreads, the Publisher’s website, or the book’s cover), my thoughts on the the book, publication details and a little about the author. I also attempt to link to any multimedia about the book that may be available freely online, such as chapter excerpts, audio or video.
I will complete reviews in a timely manner, generally within 2-4 weeks of receiving the product or book. If it will take me longer (think backlog), I will let you know upfront, in case you need the review posted sooner. If you have a specific date you would like my review posted, please let me know and I will do my best to accomodate you.
If you sponsor a review, here’s what I will do to promote it:
A sticky link at the top of my blog’s front page for 1 week.
A tweet about the review on the day the review is posted (@SharonHoward09)
A post on my facebook page the day the review is posted.
A post on 4-5 networking forums I belong to.
Links back to your website/blog, facebook page and twitter account from the review post.
Featured link on my sidebar for 3 months.
All reviews posted on this blog are 100% my honest opinion of the product or book. I promise to be diligent in my testing of the product, or reading of the book, so I can provide a thorough review. I strive to present in-depth and thorough product reviews, based solely on my own experience with the product that I am reviewing. I will always give my honest opinion on each review that I post here. My reviews are strictly my own opinion and will never be influenced based on compensation of any kind.
I retain the right to NOT post reviews or review products I did not specifically agree to review or that don’t meet my standards. If I test a product or read a book and have a negative experience or reaction to it, I would prefer to contact you to discuss my concerns in private, before posting a negative review. With that said, I cannot guarantee a positive review 100% of the time, I just don’t want to use this blog as a forum to bash anyone either.
If you send me a product to review, I will not send it back, nor will I pay for a product you wish me to review. While I appreciate the products and/or books that I receive for review, I will not give a good review in exchange for said product or book, my review will never be influenced based on compensation of any kind.
I will always disclose any and all products I receive for review and/or giveaway. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more details.
If you think we are a good fit for the product you want us to review and/or giveaway, please feel free to contact me, either through the contact form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
