I currently review here on my blog, and share the reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, NetGalley, and the Ladies of Horror Fiction website.
Please read this in its entirety before sending your request to ensure that any questions you may have for me aren’t already covered below.
You can reach me by emailing letsgetgalactic (at) gmail (dot) com (preferred method – this helps keep me organized!).
Review Requests: OPEN in 2022
As of January 2022, I am open to review requests – physical copies only. I am not accepting single-author short story ARCs unless I’ve previously read the author’s works / worked with the author before.
- All reviews will be honest, regardless of whether or not I enjoyed the book. While I may explain why the particular book didn’t work for me (in the case of negative reviews), I do value the work that goes into the process and would not post anything disrespectful in my review.
- I reserve the right to DNF any books sent to me.
- In the event of half-stars on Goodreads specifically, I always round my rating up. (Example: I give the book 3.5 stars, but mark it as 4 stars on Goodreads due to the website not allowing for half-star ratings)
- While I do my best to post reviews before an ARC’s release date, I will never guarantee this. If you message me repeatedly asking when I’ll post your review, I will find this very rude and reserve the right to decline the request. While I understand the importance of getting the word out, I also ask that you please understand the importance of my own life outside of book reviews.
- Please note that this is a review policy for publishers/authors considering sending their books to reviewers. I am not asking for people to send me links to purchase their books. If I want to buy your book, I will do so – I normally do for my ARCs upon release. However, pressuring me to buy something so that I can review it is not the way to go here.
Guest Posting / Reviews on Other Blogs or Spaces: Feel free to send me a message with your proposal! This includes reviewer interviews, guest review spots, etc. At this time, I am not currently open to guests posts being featured on Let’s Get Galactic since it’s my personal blog, but I am open to writing elsewhere, book tours, podcasts, etc.
Location of Reviews: Physical copies of books will be reviewed on Goodreads & Amazon, as well as receive their own post on my blog and Bookstagram accounts. Physical books will also appear in other photos on Bookstagram & Twitter (shelfies, bookstacks, #bookmail posts, etc) to promote the titles, both before and after the review is shared.
Preferred Genres/Titles: Horror, Novellas
Genres I Am Not Currently Accepting Requests For: Non-Fiction, Politics, Religion, Romance, Contemporary
When sending an inquiry, please include the following information:
- Title, release date, & a brief summary of the book – Goodreads link is great here!
- Will the copy provided be a Physical review copy?
- Anything else you may feel is relevant to the proposal & review. A photo of the book’s cover is lovely, too!
