Policies

 

Thank you very much for your interest in Tynga’s Reviews!

 

Review Policies

 

We spend countless hours a week working on the blog, but blogging isn’t our job,thus why it’s necessary to include some guidelines regarding review copies.

 

First of all, you need to know that sending us a review copy does not guaranty a review, but we will post a review for each book that we read integrally. And even though we try very hard to review your books in a timely manner, we do not work under a time-limited frame.

 

Also, we never guaranty a positive review, but we promise you our review will be fair and honest, and we will never denigrate an author’s work. We will mention the reasons why we didn’t like a book if it’s the case.

 

Before sending us a review request please take a look at our Past Reviews List, if you think your book would fall in that category (mostly Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Fantasy, some Dystopian & Steampunk), I’d be more than happy to hear from you!

 

We much prefer reading a series in order, so if the book you wish us to review is part of a series we haven’t read, we would appreciate you sending us the previous books as well.

 

Please that note that as of now, we do not review self-published material.

 

We accept bound and e-copies depending on the reviewer.
We do accept authors guest posts, but it has to be unique content (a.k.a we can’t find the same content on another blog).

 

STATUS: We are accepting review copies from our wish lists only (see nav bar), please email the concerned reviewer directly.

 

Fell free to contact me or any of the girls at our respective address if you need more information.

**** “In accordance with the new FTC Guidelines for blogging and endorsements, Tynga’s Reviews would like everyone to know that we purchase most of our books for review, but you should know some books reviewed here at Tynga’s Reviews were provided by the publisher or the author for free, in which case it will be specified on the review.” ****
