***AT THIS TIME I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT ARC REQUESTS***
Due to a busy work schedule and the time of year that it is, I am unable to accept ARC requests at this time. Rest assured that I am still reading and reviewing, but I don’t have time to squeeze in extra books. However, I welcome you to email me with the title and blurb of your book so I can put it on my TBR list so I can read and review it later. I have Kindle Unlimited so I am more than happy to borrow your work, read through it and leave a review (as long as I enjoyed the book). And as always, I will recommend your work to my friends on Goodreads to spread awareness.
ARC Policy For Authors
Hello, authors! I’m glad you found my blog and I hope that I can help you in some way. Let me explain a few things about my ARC policy and then you can email me @ just4bubbles2016 at gmail.com if you think we’ll be a good fit (my email is also at the bottom of this page). All reviews are left on Goodreads as Amazon gets hokey from time to time and wipes out reviews if they believe there is a review ring going around. I feel confident that my reviews will stay on Goodreads and it allows me to share my thoughts as I’m reading the book. This helps jog my memory when it comes to review time.
Normally, I’m always happy to provide an honest review of your book(s) as long as it meets my criteria. Reading should be a joyous experience so I prefer to read books that I will like. It’s no fun reading something that you’re not interested in, right? Take a look at my favorite categories/genres below to see if your book fits into one of them. If so, great! Then continue reading my review policy and move on to the next section.
My Favorite Categories/Genres
- Contemporary Romance
- Erotic Romance (the darker and dirtier, the better!)
- Women’s Fiction
- Adult Fiction
- Young Adult
What is the length of the book?
I like books of all lengths but prefer novella to novel size. Any length is fine; the purpose of this question is to help me manage my time with work, kids, review requests, etc so please tell me about this. I’m quite happy to receive a short book as long as it’s a good, full story.
Is this part of a series, or standalone, or both?
This question is very important to me. I prefer stand alone books, but if it’s part of a series and can be read as a standalone, I’m perfectly fine with that, too. If it’s part of a series and needs to be read in order, then I would like to start with the first book and read them in order so that I’m not confused. 🙂
*If your book is in the romance category and contains cheating, it’s okay.
I’m not against cheating, not that I condone cheating in real life, but books are different. I like to see what makes people tick, why they cheat and what’s their end game. One of my all-time favorite books, hands-down, is Arsen: A Broken Love Story by Mia Asher. Menages are also fine with me as well.
I do purchase books that I like (if given to me as an ARC) so that I always have a copy in my library. Another thing that I do, which is very important to you, is that I recommend your books to my friends on Goodreads.
So, are we a match?
If you answered yes, then great!
Please send me an ARC request at just4bubbles2016 (at) gmail.com & include the following:
- Length (Novel, novella, short, etc)
- Stand Alone/Part of a Series
- Release Date (if available)
- Link to Amazon and Goodreads (if available)
- Image of Book Cover (I have a thing for book covers and with your approval, I’ll share it on my blog and social media)
- Short passage from the book (just a paragraph or two) so I can get a feel for your writing style (not necessary but it’s nice)
