Review Policy

Fem Writ will provide an honest review for books received by publicists and self-publishers.

All books read are either purchased, borrowed from the library, or received from publishers for reviewing purposes. A statement is clearly stated at the top of the review if received from a publisher at no cost for an honest review per FTC regulations.

FAQ’s

What format of books will you accept?

Fem Writ will accept ARCS, Audiobooks, e-books and books from authors and publishers. I have a preference for audiobooks and print copies. E-books must be Kindle Fire compatible.

What genres do you like to read?

Though I like a wide variety of genres, I prefer to read the following:

– Dystopian (more environment or political, less alien invasion)
– Fantasy (Less sci-fi, more mythological)
– Historical Fiction (this coupled with fantasy = gold)
– Magic Realism
– Strong women characters
– Romance is accepted – not looking for erotica or fluff, but passion.

I will accept murder/mystery novels as long as the graphic content is minimal. Sexual violence is exclusively unacceptable.

Do I accept all review requests?

Though I would like to review everything, this blog is for pleasure. I will work with the requester/publisher/author and consider each request individually. As I must be contacted before receiving a copy of the work to be reviewed, I will not accept any work unless I will review it.

Are all reviews positive?

As the disclaimer above mentions, all works received at no cost are accepted with the expectation of an honest review. My reviews will be honest, and the work will receive a 1-5 star rating.

✮✮✮✮✮
I absolutely loved this book! I would buy it, recommend it to others, and will read it again.

I really enjoyed this book! I found a few flaws, but would still recommend it and read again.

This book was okay. I did not hate or love it – could be a hit or miss for others

I did not like this book, but it had some qualities that prevented it from being a total flop.

This is a terrible book. No redeeming qualities. No recommend.

If I did not finish a book, it will fall under a 1 star category and I will clearly state it.

What to expect in a review?

All works receive a review of the content with as little spoilers as I can manage. At the end of each review, the work will receive the following:

1-5 Star Rating
Worst Feature
Best Feature

All reviews will also be posted to Goodreads and shared on Fem Writ’s Facebook page.

How long does the review process take?

Books received in print or e-book format will take up to 3 weeks long. Books received in audio format will take 1-2 weeks long. A review will be posted shortly following the completion of a book. This can be discussed in correspondence with the review requester.

Does Fem Writ participate in Book Blog Tours?

This will be decided on a case by case basis. Should Fem Writ agree to participate in a blog tour, the format will be a Q&A interview format, with the expectation that the reviewer provide a copy to Fem Writ for a review and/or a copy for a giveaway. Fem Writ will prioritize Self-Publishers and Vermont authors but is open to discussion with all blog tour organizers.
