Review Policy

**Review requests are closed until March 2017**

General Policy
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 I Accept
Physical copies are preferred and receive higher priority
I also accept .mobi and Kindle files, as I read on a Kindle Fire
Please NO pdfs or epubs!

Genres I Prefer
Young adult
Dystopian
Horror
Some fantasy/sci-fi
Fairytale retellings (I (usually) LOVE Alice in Wonderland retellings)
Children's books (I have a 2 year old I read to)
Genres I 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)

Genres I Don't Read 
Non-fiction
Self-help
Politics
Humor/Satire
Comic Books
Manga
Westerns
Historical fiction, including romance
 Cozies
Mystery/thriller/suspense

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.

What I Require 
If you plan to ask for a review, these are some of the things I 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!
