Review Policy

**Review requests for Jasmine are currently closed until February 2020**

**Guest reviewer requests are currently open**
 **Review policy has been updated as of October 21st, 2019

General Policy 
**Jazzy Book Reviews now has guest reviewers. They 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. However, if you would like to offer a small donation, please feel free to click the button below.
Also, please respect my opinion if I do leave a low rating/review. It is nothing against you as a person or an author.

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)
Cozy Mysteries (prefer paranormal)
Historical (Regency) Romance

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 Reviewers' Review Time
My guest reviewers can usually have a review up within 6-8 weeks, but possibly 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 with all the information needed. I will try to get back to you within two days. If the form is closed, it means Jazzy Book Reviews is currently not taking any new requests yet. Thank you!
