Inkspots & Tea is a project of mine, rather than a job. However, I am currently accepting review requests (formats noted shortly) for books, to be accepted or declined at my own discretion. I prefer e-books/e-ARCs; I read those on my Kindle (.mobi files). I also have the ability to read e-books that are in ACSM format (Adobe Digital Editions) but would prefer a hard copy or a .mobi file rather than those. On rare occasions I am willing to accept hard copies of the books but that is only if all other options are exhausted.
*I will do my best to respond to all offers, even ones I end up declining.
*You can get in touch with me via my Contact Me page (to be put up shortly).
*Although I do fully intend to review any book I accept, I cannot commit 100% to reviewing since sometimes life happens and I get too busy. The one thing I do commit fully to do is blog tours; however, I don’t have the time to do very many of these per year.
*If I rate your book poorly, it does not reflect on you as the author. It is merely my own opinion. That being said, I do strive to find at least one or two good/positive things about books that I dislike overall.
*If I see a need to point out potentially sensitive or triggering things in a book (i.e., topics such as sexual abuse/child abuse, suicide, etc.) I will do so at the end of my review. This does not mean that I have rated your book any lower due to the content if this warning is at the bottom of the review. It simply means that I do not want anyone to read the book based on my recommendation, and end up reading something that was unexpectedly triggering.
*Genres that are generally my go-tos for reading:
- Young Adult (really any genre within YA)
- urban fantasy
- paranormal mystery/romance (or both)
- psychology/mental health (can be fiction, memoir, essay collections, etc.)
- WWI and WWII history (fiction or nonfiction)
- dystopian fiction
- thrillers and mysteries (but no psychological suspense)
- historical fiction
*Genres that I will not read:
- pure romance
- most nonfiction (unless related to psychology, mental health, or WWI/WWII)
*I am also on Goodreads and am currently planning to start posting reviews on Amazon in the near future. All of my reviews go on Goodreads (whereas mostly just reviews of ARCs end up here on Inkspots & Tea, although that may change). I am a relatively fast reader; however, if I accept your book to be read/reviewed, I will need at least a week to read/review it, if not more.
*Comments are moderated on Inkspots & Tea. This may change, but no promises.
I think that’s it! If there’s anything missing, I’ll add it ASAP. 🙂
