Review Policy

**Review requests for Jasmine are currently closed until January 2018**
**Guest reviewer requests are currently open**
 **Review policy has been updated as of March 1st, 2017**

General Policy 
**Jazzy Book Reviews now has guest reviewers. They each have their own preference of genres to read. Please see below.**
 
I reserve the right to decline a review request if I feel the book is not my cup of tea. Please respect that. Thank you!

Please do not send me unedited copies. I am an editor, and I find myself distracted by books that have not been properly edited. It usually means I will not read your book, or finish your book if I start it.

I always leave honest reviews on my blog, Amazon, and Goodreads. I do not receive any sort of compensation for my reviews.  I do them because I enjoy reading, and I enjoy helping authors. Please respect my opinion if I do leave a low rating/review. It is nothing against you as a person or an author. 

Formats Accepted
Physical copies are preferred and receive higher priority
We also accept .mobi/Kindle, epub, and PDF files. Most of us have Kindles, but some of us have Nooks.

Genres Jasmine Will Consider
Paranormal romance (not shifters/alpha males; I prefer faeries, mermaids, and angels/demons)
Contemporary romance (depends on the synopsis)
Inspirational fiction (kinda like Christian fiction, but with less religious undertones; Melissa Storm's Diving For Pearls series is a good example of this) 
Erotica/BDSM (as long as it's not all about sex; there has to be plot and character development) 
Steampunk (I've read a few I've liked, so this will depend on synopsis) 
 Middle Grade Fiction (usually for ages 8-13)

Non-fiction (exceptions made for cookbooks)

Jasmine's Review Time
 I sometimes get swamped with things, so it could take me anywhere from 2 days to a month to read your book. I usually try to have reviews posted 6-8 weeks after receiving a book. Please understand that I am a mom, and I have job-related things to take care of, so I don't always have time to sit and read quietly.

If I do not finish a book, I will contact you and let you know that I was unable to finish. This only happens if the book ends up not being my cup of tea. I try to avoid not finishing books, but it has happened on very rare occasions.

Guest Reviewer's Review Time
Most guest reviewers will have a review up within 6-8 weeks, but usually a lot sooner.

What's Required
If you plan to ask for a review, these are some of the things we require from you first:
  • Title of book
  • Author name
  • Genre
  • Synopsis
  • Link to book on Goodreads or Amazon
  • If there is anything else you feel would benefit being sent, please feel free to do so

Contact Information
You can fill out the form below (preferred) or contact me at jazzybookreviews@gmail.com for a review request. I will try to get back to you within two days. Thank you!
