Review Policies & Requests

I am going to be scaling back my blogging, kinda... Really all I'm saying is if you have request a book review from me and also have a deadline for said review, I probably can't accept it at this time, but that isn't a hard fast rule.  If you have no time frame specified for your review, no problem send it on over!  

Review Policy and Disclosure:

I accept books for review and giveaway; author and or character interviews can be requested too.

eBooks in all formats are accepted.  I read on my Kindle Fire and iPad - so I have a way to read all eBook file types and formats.
Hardcovers and Paperbacks are always awesome!  If you want to send me a real printed hard copy book just email me for my mailing address

I love books in general and will read and review pretty much anything out there.
I do reserve the right to say no to review requests (but I haven't turned down a review request like ever...)   so there you go - it's there in case I have to for some reason use it.

Here is a list of my preferred age group and genres, but like I said above, I will read darn near anything!

Age Group Preference

  • NA & Adult 
    • are my favorites
  • YA
    • is ok but I have a tougher time reading them, so they have to grab me from the beginning otherwise I tend to get bored... just fair warning

Genre Preferences

  • Contemporary Romance
  • Paranormal Romance
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Chick Lit
  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi

When & where will the reviews be posted:

Reviews will be completed on the date agreed upon, between the author/publicist and me.  I usually take between four to six weeks to read and write my review; if no date is requested then the date will be completely at my convenience.  Along with posting reviews here on random jendsmit, I will post reviews on Goodreads and Smashwords (when applicable).  I will post on Amazon and/or B&N if you specifically request it - with the new "guidelines" on the sites I have to basically write a new review to post on those two sites.  I really really hate posting negative reviews, so any review with a 2 rating or less will be sent directly to the review requester.  If after reading the review the requester still wants it posted, I will post it.  If the requester decides not to have the review posted on random jendsmit, Amazon and/or B&N, and Smashwords; I reserve the right to post the rating on Goodreads, but I will not post the review.

How to request a review:

Disclosure:

I do not receive any monetary gain for the reviews we post. The books we review come from authors, publishers, and publicist or are purchased by me; I would never ever accept money in exchange of a review.  This is my own personal board to post my thoughts, and therefore all the reviews posted are the personal opinion of me, and me alone.  I would like to state that I am in no way obligated to do a positive review; if a book is not to my liking I will contact you directly prior to posting anything regarding the book.  I also reserve the right to decline a book for review.


I do not consent or endorse E-piracy therefore I will not share in any way the book/files you send me for review.
