elfwitch loves books Policy

Review Policy

 So you want your book reviewed by elfwitch loves books?  Ok so here we go. First the facts. I have only been doing this for a short time, but I really love it. Reading has always been a passion for me.  I love to share when I read something I really love and I doing so with people with like minds. Really makes it wonderful.  Not to say I may not challenge readers to give their own point of view in form of comments. I feel reviewers can really help a book reach its audience.  I have read a ton of books because of positive reviews.

Elfwitch loves books is a book blog, that specializes in horror, speculative fiction, mainly paranormal and science fiction themed mediums. I will also review Indie Books of all fiction genres, just because I get really excited about discovering new writers. At the current time about of my new favorites are Indie writers..

At this time I am the only reviewer for my blog and unfortunately the best I can do is 2-3 books a week. I have some other reviews in mind but have not gotten them on board at this time.

The reviews are based solely on opinion, whether that opinion is negative or positive. If your book is reviewed, please expect honesty. It is my opinions, nothing more, nothing less. If I absolutely hate a book I will not review. If I can’t praise the book or give a constructive review I will not leave one.  Not much offends me, be it graphic gore, or sex. In fact if I is part of the story I enjoy it.  I just don’t want to review books that are written just for the sex. It is just not the tone I wish to set for my blog. All  queries will be accepted, but responses are not guaranteed.
