Book Review / Interview Policy - For Authors/Publishers

Book Review Policy For Authors

If you are interested to get your book reviewed or marketed on this site, or if you wish to be interviewed, kindly go through the points below and mail me at deborummy@gmail.com

1. I would request you to send me a signed copy of your book in paperback (in hardcover in case there is no paperback edition yet).

2. I do not believe in ridiculing any book, unless I find the content to be absolutely cheap and vulgar, which, in all cases barring one, has never happened. In case I feel a certain book is not to my choice, I will inform readers of its pros, but will add a comment that I did not find the book suitable to my personal reading choice, but it will be a good read for many others who will identify with that particular genre or style.

3. If you want the review to be 'dictated' or pre-arranged, I am afraid I am not the person you are looking for. I would gladly hear your description of the book and share it, but I will also add my own opinion.

4.IF it's a one-time thing, I do not charge for a review, the only condition is I need a signed copy from the author for the purpose of being genuine.

5. If you wish to be interviewed, kindly arrange to send me a signed copy of your book first. I will start reading the book to understand your style and views, and will work out the interview simultaneously.

6. I do not read books on-screen. If your book is only available online and not as a paperback/hardback, you can still share the details with me and I will share it here. In that case, you can send me details about the book, about yourself as an author, about where all the book is available and I shall try and share as much as I can here.

7. Please remember that as a book reviewer, my aim is to be honest to all readers, and that I shall be expressing my true views about the book. I am not here to kill a book, but in case I find it is not good enough for me, I am sorry, but I shall say so. I do apologise to all concerned in such cases, but hope that the author will take this as constructive feedback, as I have nothing personal against the author/publishing house.

Feel free to write in to me at deborummy@gmail.com Wishing you all the best for your book.
