Looking for Books to Review
NOTE: Due to Mental Health Issues, I have ceased doing book reviews until further notice.
This is a call out to all authors who want their books reviewed on my site. I am an experienced author with 3 books currently released, with 4 to 5 stars with reviews each. Thus I know what goes into a good book.
What does it cost?
I have a pay-what-you-want policy. That means you can do one of the following:
Donate to me with a monetary value of your choice. (If I can't post the review of your book I will refund you.)
Compensate me by reading and reviewing one of my books.
Or choose not to provide compensation.
If you don't want to compensate me, that's perfectly okay. I'm doing this as much for myself as I am for you. Essentially compensation isn't required, but it is appreciated.
Do I have to provide you with a copy?
I will purchase my own copy of the eBook off of Amazon. I have no need of physical copies (since I live in a tiny apartment with too many full shelves), and eBooks are cheap enough that I can afford them myself.
How often will you be doing reviews?
I will be doing 1 book review per week, publishing the review on a Tuesday. Reviewing books will be first come first serve. Note though that I may have a back log, so it may take several weeks before I am able to review your book. If I agree to do it, I'll let you know when I will be reviewing your book.
Can I have you post the review on another platform?
I will also post a review of the book on any other platform of your request.
Will you give an honest review? / Will you give me only a good review?
I will give a honest review of the book, which as a fellow Author I know is more valuable than simply lying about its quality, even if it hurts. However, if I can not give the book a 4 stars or higher, I will spare you the public shame of getting a negative review, and will not post the review, giving my feedback to you in private instead.
How long will you promote the review for?
I will continue to promote the blog post review for 1 week after posting it on my twitter profile with 5k + followers, with 3 posts per day for 7 days starting the day I post the review.
I need my Book Reviewed by a certain date before your next open slot. Can you do that or me?
Yes, I can accommodate. But for something like this, I will ask you for monetary compensation due to extra time having to be taken to ensure I meet the deadline. The amount really depends on far in the future the due date is. Note that if If I can't post the review of your book on time, or can't give it a 4 or 5 stars I will refund you.
3 Days or Less advanced Warning: If I have only three or less days to do the review, this means I'm probably going to spend all of my time working on other things instead working on your review. That isn't going to make me a happy man, but I'll do it if I get paid. Thus $200 CAD.
4 to 14 days Advanced warning: This is barely any time for me to really fit in an entire whole extra review. Thus its going to cost you, because I could be spending this time doing something else. $100 CAD
15 days to 1 Month: This is more reasonable, but still, I could be spending that extra time doing other things, so its going to cost something. $50 CAD
1 Month to 3 Months: This is very reasonable, and will make me happy to do it for you. But still it will cost a bit. $20 CAD
Greater than 3 Months: If my schedule is really this packed that over three months in the future I still don't have, then oh boy do I have a lot of people wanting me to review their stuff. Just so that I don't have EVERYONE trying to get a hastened review, this will cost $15 CAD.
Note that if I have too many people doing these hastened reviews at a time, I may up the price on this sheet. Check back here regularly as this sheet will be updated because of that.
What genre of book will you review?
I will review any genre of book except for the following:
I will not review Non-Fiction
I will not review Children Books
I will not review Erotica involving characters under the age of 18.
I will not review religious literature due to not having viable insight in those areas. Its nothing against religious literature.
Political Satire is hit and miss. I will judge it on a book by book case.
