REVIEW POLICY:

I am currently NOT accepting review requests. HOWEVER if your book is historical fiction (particularly WWII era) please ask away because I will probably love it and I am always looking for books to feature in my new A Glimpse Back in Time feature!

Hello! Thank you for your interest in Rattle the Pages! Below are a few things to keep in mind when making a request!

1. Review Policies
2. Other Promotional Post Policies
3. Guest Blogger Policies
4. Giveaway Policies

All requests can be sent to rattlethepages AT gmail DOT com.

1. Review Policy

-I will only respond to offers that interest me.

-Books accepted for review are for consideration only. The acceptance of a request does not guarantee a review.

-Reviews will always be my honest thoughts and opinions.

-Reviews will be posted here, on Goodreads, on Amazon, and on Barnes and Noble.

-I will post DNF reviews on my blog, but not on any other site.

-I will accept physical books or ebooks for review. I do prefer physical copies, but have no real problem reading an ebook. Ebooks should be in ePUB or PDF format.

-I will accept advanced reading copies or finished copies of books.

-If your book is a sequel and I have not read the previous book(s) in the series, I will probably not accept your request.

-If there is a timeline that you would like your book reviewed in, please let me know with your request and I will try to honor it.

-I TRY to post reviews for advanced copies within the month before the publication date.

-I live on a ranch and have a day job. Things can get busy at a moment's notice for me. Therefore, I can't make 100% guarantees about anything. This is a hobby and takes the back burner to real life.

This is primarily a blog about Young Adult books. I will also accept New Adult and Middle Grade novels.

Fantasy
Science Fiction
Dystopia
Post Apocalyptic
Historical Fiction

Summary

If there is anything else you would like included with the review, let me know.

-Most finished ARCs will be donated, traded, or used for giveaways. Never sold.

2. Other Promotional Posts Policy

-Are you looking for a platform for some other type of promotional post? I will post blog tours, cover reveals, guest posts, interviews, giveaways, or other types of promotional posts for you or your book.

-If there is an idea you have, shoot me an email and we can try to work something out.

-I will only respond to offers that interest me.

-Keep in mind: This is a BOOK blog. I am not going to limit what type of posts you can request of me. I have gotten some really fun requests! But please make sure that your request can be related somehow to books or blogging.

3. Guest Blogger Policy

I have not had very many guest bloggers at this point so I'm not 100% sure what policies to have for this.

If you have a bookish post in mind and no platform to post it on, I would be happy to host you on my blog.

Just shoot me an email with your idea and any content/pictures/info you'd like included. If you were able to send me the HTML of the finished post that I can just paste into a post and format to my liking, that would be fabulous as well.

Guest posters will not be compensated in any way.

4. Giveaway Policy

-All giveaways will be US only unless otherwise stated.

-Book/Preorder giveaways are more likely to be international if the order can be placed through Book Depository. ARC/Other bookish item giveaways will likely only be US due to shipping costs.

-All winning entries will be checked. You will be disqualified if you did not do what the entry claims you did.

-Giveaway accounts are not accepted and will be disqualified.

-Winners will be notified by twitter or email. You have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.
