Review Policy

General

I am currently accepting Children’s, Young Adult, Middle Grade and Adult Fiction for review. You can send emails to books@twistedsense.com. I accept ARCs, finished copies, and audiobooks. If the book is a part of a series, then I would appreciate the preceding books for the sake of continuity. Audiobooks will receive two reviews: one for the story, and one for the reader’s performance. I prefer print books, but I am happy to receive your book in electronic format.

Genres

Appreciated genres:
For Children’s books, all topics are welcomed!
Early readers up to Middle Grade will receive reviews by a young reader.

For Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult Fiction:

  • Paranormal
  • Apocalyptic/Post-Apocalyptic
  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Historical Fiction
  • Romance
  • Mystery
  • Thrillers
  • Zombies!
  • Horror
  • Humor
  • Memoirs/Biographies

Accepting Books

I will do my best to review all books received, and adhere to your promotion schedules as needed. I will make a standard attempt to release the reviews 2-3 weeks before each book’s official release date. Please do include the expected release date of the book so that I may plan accordingly. If you have any special requests for when I publish the reviews, please include that information as well.

Reviews

I post reviews widely to various mediums. Goodreads, Amazon, and Facebook, Library Thing, and Shelfari are the priority websites to publish reviews. I will also utilize Twitter to publicize these reviews. If you have an alternative you’d like me to use, I am open to suggestion.

Reviews are written to invoke the feeling of a friend recommending a book to another friend. I do not intend to write objective literary critiques. These will be very personal and subjective. I will write the review honestly, but I can’t promise to enjoy every book read. My reviews will be candid but fair, and no unnecessarily negative language is used in any review.

If, for any reason, I do not finish the book, I will attempt to write an explanation as to why. I will include what page I read up to, and my thoughts of the book up to that point. I will always try to continue a DID-NOT-FINISH book at a later date, when hopefully a resting of my eyes and brain will help me connect better with the story.

Let me host your giveaway! Entries will be compiled & winners chosen using Rafflecopter. If you would like me to host a giveaway for a book, please be sure to include the following information in your request:

  • Title/Author
  • Format of the book (ARC, hardcover, paperback, audiobook)
  • Shipping requirements (US, US/CA, or International)
  • Run time of the giveaway
  • Any additional information you would like included (photo of prize, blurb, signed?, etc)

Author Guest Posts and Interviews

I’m interested in hosting authors individually, or via author tours. If you would like to be featured on Twisted Sense, please email me with the following information:

  • Your name and the name of your book
  • A brief description of your book (or link to Goodreads)
  • Do you prefer a guest post or an interview?
  • Will you provide a topic/questions or would you like me to? *
  • The month/date you would like to be featured
  • If you would like to include a giveaway

*Please note: If I have not read your book yet and you are coming up with your own guest post topic , then I prefer, but do not require, you send me a copy of your book. If I have not read your book yet and I am coming up with the guest post topic or interview questions , then I require a copy of your book and some lead time to read the book.
