As of January 1, 2015: I happily accept picture books for review. I accept physical copies only — ARCs, galleys, etc. are fine — it just needs to be something I can sit down and read with my family.
I understand that this is not cheap — especially if you are a self-published or indie author. I am grateful that you are willing to take the time and energy to send a physical copy to me to review on my site.
I am not able to participate in blog tours or giveaways, etc. I wish I could, but it just isn’t possible for me at this time. I am interested in doing interviews. I have lots of questions.
Each week I am now posting a ‘Our Week in Picture Books’ where I write about the books we’ve read the previous week. I will include your book in the week’s post after we have received it. Then later, about 6 to 8 weeks later, I will post the review. Sometimes a little longer, sometimes a little sooner — but generally about 6 to 8 weeks.
None of this is guaranteed, but I do my best. If for whatever reason, the book is just not the right fit for either my family or this blog, I will not review it. This happens very, very rarely, but it does happen.
Unfortunately, I receive so many requests for review these days that I am unable to respond to all of those that request book reviews. I wish I could say yes to everyone, but there’s just not enough time right now. Maybe when the kids are older? I hope so!
Thank you so much for thinking of me. I’m flattered that you’d like your book reviewed on my site. Also, good luck with your book! Picture book authors and illustrators are some of the hardest working people I’ve met. I wish you lots of success!
Thank you so much for visiting. I am impressed, grateful, and humbled when people take the time to read what I have to say.
