Policy

Welcome to Tale Out Loud! Thank you for visiting my blog and taking chance on me and for having an interest of requesting to read and review your book. I am currently accepting review requests. Please read over my review policy before contacting me.

GENRES I READ
• Young Adult
• Contemporary
• Middle Grade
• Science Fiction
• Fantasy
• Romance
• Poetry
• Mystery/Thriller

Please Note:
I am also willing to review historical, literary and adult fiction from time to time depending on the appeal of the story and don’t restrictively confined myself on just reading the aforementioned genres.

Because I mainly read Young Adult, genres with strong sexual themes like Erotica, Horror and Non-Fiction won’t be accepted.

At the moment I am not accepting review requests from self-published books or books published through indie publishers IF it’s not within my genre OR not my cup of tea. If I have reviewed your self-published books in the past, feel free to contact me again. This is due to the vast number of self-published titles out there.

ACCEPTED FORMAT
• Advance Review Copy
• Print Finished copy
• Galley
• Ebook/Mobi

Plese note:
Print finished copies is strongly preferred and given more of a priority. IF you are requesting a book in a series, I ask you to include all the preceding installments since I prefer reading a series in order.

Plese note:
All reviews are entirely my own personal opinion — fair and honest. I hope you understand that I cannot possibly love every book and there were instances in which negative review is due if I didn’t like or enjoy the book. I can promise that I will be respectful in my criticisms as I do not intend my reviews to be harmful in any way because I appreciate you as an author and everything you have put through to write your book.

I also reserve the right to not finish an ARC or review copy and not post a review if I do not feel comfortable doing so.

After I review your book, I will send you a direct link from this blog and all sites in which my review has been cross-posted like on Goodreads, Amazon, NetGalley and Edelweiss or promoted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
