Reviewing is not an easy task. Be it a book or a product or a movie, it takes immense patience and critical observation skills to identify the drawbacks in the midst of perfect presentation.
Here are some fun facts and some not-so-fun-facts about my reviewing and the policies that come along:
GENRES I PREFER
Ø Science fiction
Ø Action and Adventure
**In case the genre, for which you want a review, is not listed here, then do contact via email.
FORMAT OF THE REVIEW COPY (that I prefer)
Ø E books (with a maximum page count of 150) (subject to availability of time)
**Signed copies and paid reviews will get a preference over other books. I will review such copies on special priority.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A REVIEW
Ø Once I receive the review copy, I will inform the concerned author about the same. It will take between 10-15 days to review a book.
Ø In case you opt for unpaid review, the review will be posted on my personal blog (Yes, this one) and on any two online portals, on which the book is available
Ø However, in case you opt for paid review, the review will be first published in some of the online e magazines (where I am a regular contributor). After a week’s time, I will publish the same review on my personal blog, followed by all the available online portals
Ø The review may or may not have criticism, depending upon the content
Ø The views expressed, will be my very own and they will not (in any case) be influenced by the author or the publishing house
Ø I am open to hosting guest blogs, performing author interviews, and conducting promotions/giveaways
Ø I will give my feedback solely based on honesty and integrity that I believe in
Ø Any form of criticism in my review will be for the book itself and no offense will be intended to the author or the publication house
COMPONENTS OF A REVIEW
In my reviews, you will generally find:
Ø Title of the book
Ø Book image
Ø About the author (in some cases)
Ø Summary of the plot
Ø My opinion
Ø Drawbacks (if any)
Ø Links to buy the book
**The format of the review can change, keeping intact the above mentioned sub-headings but adding some additional fun stuff.
