Book Review / Disclosure Policy

~ Book Review Policy ~

Authors, Publishers and Publicists:

Jersey Girl Book Reviews does accept author requests for book reviews that are not associated with a virtual book blog tour! All author requested book reviews will be posted in between scheduled virtual book blog tour events.

Due to the amount of emails that I receive on a daily basis, I will only respond to emails for author requests for book reviews that I am interested in reading/reviewing.

Please note that the estimated turn around timeline for a book review is long due to the amount of requests that I have received, and there is no guaranteed timeline for a review as it can change as I receive more requests. I will contact you when the book review is ready to be posted on this blog site. If you have a specific date in which the book review needs to be posted by, please advise me of this requirement when you submit your book review request, and I will do my best to try to accommodate your request.

Genres: I will only read and review books that piques my interest. Books from the erotica genre will be featured on my sister blog site: Jersey Girl Sizzling Book Reviews. My favorite genres are: Chick Lit, Contemporary Romance, Women's Fiction, Christian Fiction and Mystery Suspense Thrillers. I do not like Children's Books, Poetry, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Paranormal or Horror books, please do not send me a request for review for the books in these genres.

2) Author Website
3) Copy of Book: I accept the following book formats: I generally read on a Kindle, the mobi format is preferable; but I will also accept PDF files (Adobe Reader), ARCs, Galleys, Paperbacks and Hardcovers.

I will only write an honest, thoughtful and unbiased book review based on my personal opinion, and I do not guarantee a positive review. I reserve the right to keep the books given to me for my personal library, to loan them to other readers, and/or to offer them as promotional giveaways for my blog site followers/visitors.

My Rating System and Disclosure Policy in accordance with the FTC regulations are posted on this blog site for your review.
