Turn-Around Time on Reviews:
Notify us of a date you need the review complete by and we will advise if we are able to work that into our schedule. We can generally have a book read within a couple days. However, if my schedule is full, it could take up to 2-3 weeks. We will advise if we can accommodate your time schedule.   If the book is an ARC – advise ASAP so it can be reviewed on or before your release date.   When reviewing your book, we will post all reviews, even if we do not like the story, we will state the reason in a professional and unbiased manner. We will not respond to negative comments posted to reviews and welcome fans posting their comments to our website. However, we do reserve the right to remove any posts that are vulgar, demeaning or construed as being rude. We will not lie in our reviews, for any reason, so please do not ask us to, we will not be swayed on this! We reserve the right to refuse reviewing a book for any reason and are under no obligation to review a book. If we agree to review, we will do everything we can to do the review. If for some reason our schedule changes we will notify you as soon as possible to reschedule for a later date or advise if we cannot do the review. We apologize in advance if this is the case. Books shipped to us for review will not be returned and you agree that the book(s) is/are our property and will not be copied, forwarded or distributed in any manner. If during shipment the book becomes damaged, we are not responsible for the book. We will take a photo of the damage and contact you for a replacement.
