Review Policy

Review Policy

*Effective February 20, 2014*

**My turnaround time for a book review is currently 4 - 6 weeks.  HOWEVER, my family comes first so it may take a few additional weeks.  If your book is an ARC and there is a specific deadline, please let me know when you send me your review request**

Genres we WILL accept:

US Military (Civil War era only)
US History
Chick Lit
Tween (10-13)
True Crime
Children's Books
Non Fiction

Books we DO NOT accept:

boychik lit
Military (read above as to what we accept)

I only accept physical copies.  However, we will consider PDFs. 

Your book may be reviewed by either myself, Daddy Frugal, little Frugals, or one of our contributors.  There are so many great new authors that we want to be able to read and review as much as possible.

I am accepting books for review from authors, publishers, publicists.  I do accept self-published books as long as they have been professionally edited.  If a book contains a lot of typos or grammatical errors, I will mention this fact in the review or I may choose to not review the book at all.

I do not return books that are sent to me for review.  I do not guarantee a review for any book I receive.  I will review any book that I finish.  So if it's good enough to hold my attention until the end, then I will review it.

I do not gurantee a positive review, only an honest one.

I WILL NOT read series of out of order!  If you want me to read a book that is a part of a series, then please send me all of the books in the series.

I cross post to Amazon, Blogger, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Goodreads.

Send your review requests to maggiethefrugalmomma AT gmail DOT com.

If your request is accepted, you will be asked to email a .jpg of the book cover so that can be added to the review.

We will NOT review any book if we are told that after upon reviewing, we feel this book is anything less than a 4 (4 out of 5), we are NOT allowed to post the review on Amazon, Goodreads or anywhere online.  As a consumer and avid book reader, if I see a book or product has all high reviews and I purchase it and it turns out to be one of the worst books I've ever read or a lemon of a product, I will not be very happy.  When I read reviews, I want the truth.  Not the bought version.  And that is how I do my reviews.  You will get honesty both good and bad.  If that's not what you want, then do not submit a request.

If you are a publishing company that blacklists any reviewer who doesn't give all of your authors a high rating then please do not ask us to review your books.

I do not sell the books that are given to me for review.  I donate them to the local library, schools or other local charities that accept books.
