My name is Lisa Pottgen. I can be contacted in the following manners if you would like to request a review of your book. However, please be advised that I am significantly backlogged with reviews and it will take me a couple of months to get through what is already on my plate, so I may not respond in as timely a manner as I would like.
You can review my Facebook fan page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Just-Another-Rabid-Reader/190458081073700
However, I will not respond to review requests through that site.
I will also not respond to review requests left in comments on my blog.
I started blogging about books because everyone around me got sick of hearing what I had to say. Now, I have a global audience, and I love helping to promote books I enjoy.
Genres I enjoy:
- Young Adult/New Adult
- General Fiction
- Romance if it has a plot or also falls in one of the above categories.
The only type of book I WILL NOT review is erotica. This is a personal preference based on the fact that some readers are under the age of 18 and I do not want to have anything in the too adult category on my blog. My kids might read this some day! I may have, in the past, posted about an erotica book, but moving forward, I would prefer not to have too much in the realm of erotica on my page, unless the content is VERY mild.
I have a very hard time doing children’s books because I have trouble relating to them. I will feature one a month if it really grabs me and has a good story to it, but those features will be limited.
I am willing to review self published authors, indie authors, small press authors, and large press authors, authors of all kinds on a case by case basis, as long as the request reflects that they have read this review policy.
If you want to request that I review a book, you can contact me at the email address above. I am also on Twitter with a username of @destinyisntfree. I am on Goodreads, and my profile there can be reached by clicking on the widget to the right.
Please note that, while I wish I could love every book, if I accept your book, it is not a guarantee for a review. There will also be no guarantee on a positive review. I will be first and foremost an honest reviewer. I will attempt to review books as quickly as possible, but please understand that I do this in my free time, am not compensated in any way for reviews, and I do have a day job and 3 children. As such, I will try to review your book as quickly as possible, but sometimes life happens. I currently try to have reviews posted within 90 days of receiving a book, but I will make every effort to accommodate for upcoming release dates and deadlines. I am willing to accept ARCs or non-ARC books. Please indicate in your request which you will be sending, as this affects how the book is reviewed. I will accept these in either e-book form or in print editions. However, please be advised that print books will take precedence over ebook. Print books will generally be reviewed faster as they are less likely to be lost in the black hole that is my ereader.
Regarding print editions, I will provide my mailing address upon request.
My reviews will be honest, as that is what readers are going to expect of me.
I am currently considering and accepting review copies in all categories except erotica. I am sorry, but I am not able to respond to all requests and am only responding to those requests that I wish to grant at this time. I am just not able to reply to everyone, nor am I able to read every book.
I am willing to post additional content, such as author interviews and allow author guest posts.
I am willing to do giveaways, but at this time cannot afford to provide the copy myself, so if you are willing to provide a giveaway copy, I am willing to facilitate that.
I currently have roughly 100 direct blog followers via Linkyfollowers, direct email followers and Networked blogs, as well as Bloglovin. My Facebook page has roughly 655 likes, and I have currently approximately 475 twitter followers. This page is currently averaging over 3000 pageviews a month, with roughly 1200 unique visitors.
**DISCLAIMER** I am not compensated in any way for posting reviews. I do receive a very small commission if a book is purchased through a link I post on my site. You are free to ignore my links, however, and use your own methods of searching for books if you prefer. I will never require anyone to buy through my links.
I comply with all FTC guidelines, and readily post reviews of my own free will. I am not compensated for these reviews at any time, and will include in my post at the time if I received the copy from the author or if I purchased it myself.
