If you have not read the latest Decoding Book Reviews to understand how I rate book reviews, this might be great time to do so before you send your book. (Always posted on the first of the month.)
I will be honest here and state that LGBTQ+ books of all genres have preferred seating. Stating that though, I do read all genres as you can see by my reviews.
Now I just lied, I do not read all genres (laugh). This is where you really need to pay attention. I am not a huge fan of women’s fiction, westerns, historicals, or writers who use ten words when one will do. Now in writing this I know that there are always exceptions to this as a year ago I would have had science fiction on this list and K.C. Luck started to change all of that for me and now I read sci-fi all the time and love it.
I have read some historicals and loved them. One of my favorite books of 2019 had a very distinctive writing style and I praised them for it. So there are exceptions, but they are rare and few. I just want to give a heads up that if you have one of these novels, I may not be the best reviewer for you. I prefer being honest.
Now if you send me your book and two months later you have no promotion on the book, then I probably reviewed it and did not promote it. You will probably find it at the end of the month in a blog called December Reads for example. On the last day of the month all of the books that I rate three stars or less go in this blog and get posted. I do not promote this blog on social media. I see no need to promote three star reviews.
If I liked your book then the review on my blog will be different than what I post on Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub. I have a tendency to write in a chatty tone and a…hmmmm sexual overtone? (laugh). So the censors have a tendency to hit me as I have learned, so I change things up or leave things out in my public views. If I am a constant reviewer or crush on you, see Arizona Tape reviews for example, I will talk to you and stalk you. (Not really stalk you stalk you – oh my gosh I’m not crazy.)
Anyhoo, have I covered everything? Hmmmmm….
I love extras if you have any: excerpts, a line or two that I can include in the review, something that makes my blog jump out and gets more viewers to my page. If you have a giveaway you are promoting – I will promote it too.
There is a method to my posting madness. There are rainbow days and non-rainbow days. Days do get mixed due to the number of books that come in, but I try to promote rainbow material on rainbow days, and non-rainbow materials on non-rainbow days. This usually averages out to two days each a week.
Gosh, I feel like I am forgetting something. Of course, if you have any questions you can email me at any time.
