Review Policy

Take a look at some of my reviews; they all vary in length, detail and tone. I am not a particularly formulaic or professional reviewer; I am simply a lover of words. Consequently, my reviews may sometimes read as just my thoughts on the book and not analysis. I always post my reviews on Goodreads and LibraryThing, and occasionally on Amazon and Random Buzzers.

No genres are necessarily off-limits to be reviewed. I read and enjoy historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery, nonfiction, and all their sub-genres and intended audiences. The only genres that I am not a fan of are spiritual/religious stories, poetry, erotica, or graphic novels.

I am happy to accept Advanced Reading Copies as well as currently published books in hard copy or e-book format compatible to a Kindle. My review will always be honest and respectful of the work and the author. By the very nature of being honest, my review may not be glowing. I refuse to deceive others and myself by falsely changing my opinion about a work.

By accepting or receiving a book, I cannot guarantee that it will be immediately read or posted, but will definitely try my hardest to read and review in a timely manner. If you have a specific time frame for when you would like the review to be posted, please let me know so I can plan accordingly. At this time, I am being very selective about accepting anything to review; I am trying to reduce some of the accumulated backlog before promising anything more.

If you would like your book to be reviewed on Playing Jokers, or if you would like Playing Jokers to host a giveaway, guest post, author interview, or similar book-related news, then I invite you to please email me at playingjokersblog@gmail.com.
