We cannot guarantee that all books will be reviewed, but we will do our best. We have the right to refuse a book for review based on our discretion. Once a review is posted,we will notify the author.
What we will not review: books containing snuff, depraved or illegal acts, pedophilia, abuse of a child, rape, incest, bestiality (not counting sex with immortal beings such as werewolves), golden showers or any other bodily excrement.
Please keep in mind before requesting a review that while we understand that as an author, you've poured your heart and hard work into your story, not all readers are going to love it as much as you do. Reviews are opinions, and will vary greatly.
If the reviewer doesn't particularly care for your book, don't take it to heart or get discouraged. Another reviewer may love it. While we offer honest reviews without the snark, it's just an opinion.
Under no circumstances will we tolerate verbal attacks against our reviewers. If you feel you've received a low review score unfairly, please email us and we'll either try to have another reviewer read it, or remove the review from the site.
Please review our Rating Policy on the left side and our Heat Descriptions at the bottom. All stories will receive a rating and heat description.
If the reviewer gives the book a 1-rose rating, the review will not be posted. We will contact the author and explain why. If your book is published with a reputable publisher--which generally requires extensive editing--we would anticipate at least a 2-rose rating.
Most books generally fall in the 3-5 rose rating. However, for those books that reach far beyond the norm, those that keep the reviewer glued to the pages, we have the Full Bouquet. This is reserved for the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the books that readers remember long after they've closed the last page.
Whether your book receives a 3-5 rose or a Bouquet, you should be proud of your accomplishment. Writing takes a lot of hard work and effort. Being able to call yourself a published author is something to be proud of. You've accomplished something many people dream about but never do.
