Review Policies

Bookworm for Kids is currently open to review requests and scheduling for December.


Thank you for your interest in Bookworm for Kids! Although I work with several book tour companies and publishers, I'm always excited to accept books from other sources for review, including self-publishers and indie publishers. 

Before submitting a request for a review, I ask that you read this entire page. If you happen to have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Almost all books reviewed on this blog are intended for children and youth ages 0 to 18. Occasionally, I have a 'Mommy and Daddy's Day', which consists of a book of my personal choice, but these posts are very rare. All books, excluding the ones I present on these special posts must have (what I consider) appropriate content for the intended audience. Any books which do not meet these standards will not be accepted for review.

When receiving a review request, I do not guarantee to write or leave a review of the book but agree to consider it for review. If I decide not to review your book, I will let you know and give you my reasons. 

I will not post negative reviews on my site, since I don't want to waste my time reading or writing something I don't enjoy. Also, being a writer myself, I understand how much time, effort and love goes into completing a book and won't destroy another writer's dream. I also realize reviews are nothing more than personal opinions - just because I don't like something doesn't mean someone else won't. 

All opinions are my own or reflect that of my children. I write reviews on my blog simply because I love to read and especially find it important to support reading in audiences ages 18 and under.

I accept e-book copies in the form of mobi or pdf files. 

If I accept a book for review and decide to post it on Bookworm for Kids, I try to post a cover picture, short blurb, sales links, author picture, author biography as well as any other appropriate links along with my review. I do insist that the rights for all images sent to me are owned by the author (or publishing company), and by sending me such information for use on my blog, you are guaranteeing that you have the full rights to said images and content. If you would like a giveaway included in the post, that is fine. I take no responsibilities on that end.  

I often have a backlog and cannot guarantee to post a review within a specific time frame. If you need a review in a certain time frame, please contact me about three months in advance. I will inform you of the approximate date for the post as soon as I can. I will not post a review on any sites before my scheduled post date.

I do try to leave my reviews on other sites, but by no means guarantee it. When I review a book, the review is for Bookworm for Kids readers.


DISCLOSURE

All reviews on this site are written by myself, are my own opinion, and are original in thought and content. Please, do not copy and/or redistribute ANY review or excerpt without contacting me first. Normally, I have no problem with authors/publishers using my reviews or parts of my reviews and just like to have a heads- up.

If you agree to the above, please feel free to contact me at:
