Angela's Review Policy 

I love to read, and I love to share that with others.  I strive to do this through my reviews, giveaways, interviews, and other features here.

My accepting Does and Don'ts
  • Genres I read: Young Adult, Contemporary Adult, PNR/UF
  • I'm currently only accepting Pre-release titles due to time restraints.  
  • I'm interested in receiving ARCs/galleys/eARCs.
  • I currently do not accepting self-pub/indie books due to time restraints. Sorry, I am at my max of requests at this point.  (If I have worked with you in the past, contact me, I may be able to work you in)
  • I do not read non-fiction.
  • Please do not attach your book to your book request email.
  • I reserve the right not to review every book I receive or accept.
  • I can not accept every book I receive a request for due to having a very full reading and review schedule.  I appreciate your understanding in this.
  • Books I have solicited always receive priority over unsolicited books.

Include in your request - contact dukesangel002 AT yahoo DOT com or use contact form above.
  • Title
  • Genre
  • Link
  • Cover (if available)
  • Release Date
  • Blurb

I will try to only accept books that I really think I will enjoy.  I always try to post my reviews in a timely manner, but if it's awhile before the book is released then I will wait until closer to release date. I generally post within 2-3 weeks of the book release date, unless you request otherwise or I have gotten really behind (which does happen, I am human and with a family and very full real life I get behind on my reading).

I post honest reviews, be my opinion positive or negative.  If for some reason a book really isn't to my tastes and I can't finish it, I won't be able to post a review.  This does not happen often, but I may list it in a "did not finish" list.

I post every review I write on Goodreads.  I also post most reviews on Barnes and Noble, Amazon, LibraryThing, and Borders.

I do not receive or accept any form of payment or endorsement for my reviews.  They are completely my honest opinion.

If you would like for me to review your book, or have any questions, PLEASE contact me at dukesangel002(at)yahoo(dot)com.

-Loretta is currently not accepting books for review, thank you for understanding.- 

Genres I Read:
  • Young Adult: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Romance, Contemporary. 
  • Adult: Paranormal, Romance, Historical Romance, Urban Fantasy, Erotica, Contemporary,
  • New Adult
(Really: a little of this & a little of that)
  • I do accept  self published novels! Shoot me an email and I will gladly take a look into your book! If it doesn't appeal to me, I will let you know. I would appreciate after that, you do not ask again. No, usually means no the 2nd time around for me to. 
I will only accept books that I really think I will enjoy.  I always try to post my reviews in a timely manner, but if it's awhile before the book is released than I will wait until closer to release date. I generally post the week of the books release date unless you request otherwise. If you want your review posted sooner, or later please specify.
  • If the book Does NOT appeal to me. I will let you know & I will tell you why. I will not finish, nor will I write a review for a book that I DNF'd. Only if I finished and rated the book, accordingly.
I will post a very honest review. (honest being the key term here. I will not sugar coat my review. This meaning, if I did not like the book, but I strongly like you as an author. I will tell you the truth [even if I don't know you] I feel that is what we are here for. To rate. Sometimes we might offend. I mean nothing in a negative way to you. I will be honest.)  I will take the time to read, and love your book. To get the best review that I can. And promote it as well. But, if I do not like it. I will not bash your book, or you. I understand that this is your work. Your time. Your love. I will honestly state why I did not like it. Or why I did not finish it. Honestly. Sincerely.
I post every review I write on Goodreads & Amazon/Amazon UK, Book Depository. I also use Twitter. Where I post links to my blog. Where the review can be seen. @Loretta_Lynn86

  • I am also a member of Book Blogs 
  • I do not read outside of the five genres stated above. If I do, ever. It is not a review book I try new genre's on. I think that would be unfair to you as an author, because I had not read that genre, or liked it before!
  • Any books that I receive are from promotional purposes. I should not be charged any fee's. 
  • I will never sale your arc. ever.
  • If this book, is used for a tour, I will very much take care of it. 
Some things to consider when you email me for a 'Review Request':
  • Courtesy. Remember I am a person too. I have a life outside of blogging. This is not my JOB, but it is my Passion. I love reading. Understand - I do have life to live as well.   
  • Please include links to your book. Amazon | Goodreads | Something. Please It helps when I want to look into your book more.
  • Deadline: If you NEED your book reviewed by a specific date SAY so. Or I will not be reviewing it until I have the other review books, that were before you, read. This will also help me in deciding to review it or not! Example: You book may sound like something that I want to read. BUT you need a review by ____ date. I would look at my schedule. Factor in Life, and then make my decision. I would also state WHY I will not review your book. RATHER it be your -time frame- or I am just not -interested-. PLEASE do not be offended if I say NO, due to not thinking I would like it. I mean, I would not want to read it, even though I would not be interested in it just to NOT LIKE it. I stick to my genre mainly. So please understand this.
  • Contact me via EMAIL for a REVIEW REQUEST: I will not answer Goodreads Comments | Twitter @Mentions | FB Wall Posts | No. I will ignore you. Email me. Personally.
  • MY NAME: My name is not: Hey | Blogger | What's up Blogger Girl (YES, this has happened) | Yo, | It is: Loretta | Between The Pages | Mrs. Davis - Respect & courtesy. I would NOT address you as "Hey you author that wrote this book".
